It’s a major headache that’s plagued plenty of parents over the years: After your child outgrows their infant car seat, how can you still travel without hauling your impossibly bulky, heavy convertible car seat around? How can urban parents confidently put their toddler in a cab and continue on their way without relying on a decidedly unportable forward-facing seat? WayB finally came up with the answer: a lightweight, foldable car seat that’ll keep your kiddo safe, whether in the car or on a plane. (Yep, it’s FAA-approved.)

What We Love

• This cleverly designed forward-facing car seat boasts a compact fold, letting you stash it in your stroller basket or slip it into the travel bag and wear it on your back; it even fits in most planes’ overhead compartment bins

• The Pico weighs a mere 8 pounds, rivaling the weight of even some infant car seats

• You don’t have to worry about skimping on safety: The aluminum frame is made from the same materials in jet engines and rocket ships, it can be installed with either a car’s LATCH system or a car or plane’s seat belt, and the five-point harness keeps kids secure

Buy it: $330, TheTot.com
