A Swaggy Story:
Kool Seat was created out of my “mama bear instinct” to protect my baby from the hot car seat in the Vegas heat. It was a June day back in 1998. My son, Steven, had just graduated from the infant car seat to the convertible car seat that stays in the car.
I had no idea how hot and potentially dangerous his car seat would be until I went to put him in it after a visit at grandma‛s house. His bare little legs were coming in contact with his car seat‛s hot metal buckles.
Not to mention the hot air trapped behind his sweet little back while he was strapped down in the 5 point harness. He had no way to move forward to allow fresh air circulation back there. No way was I going to put my sweet baby in a “hot seat.” So several prototypes and a few tweaks later, the Kool Seat quickly became part of my essentials when leaving the house. Steven quickly became the coolest kid in town…literally.
My husband, Brian and I, decided to give it a go and created a company called Kool-Solutions. After several successful years of selling more than 1000 Kool Seats nationwide, we decided to take a break and focus on our boys, Steven and Matthew. But the passion to protect children from potential car seat burns never went away.
Now, 13 years later, that same passion exists to keep kids cool so that‛s why we have brought the Kool Seat back, but under the company name SwaggyBear. We still have the same goal…keeping kids safe and comfortable. The same little boy that I created this product for is now almost 16 years old and partially responsible for the name SwaggyBear. The word swag must be spoken in my house a gazillion times a day. It seemed to be the perfect fit given that the Kool Seat keeps car seats chillin while you‛re out livin. And swag…well what‛s cooler than swag!
The first priority of SwaggyBear is to protect babies, toddlers, and young kids from hot car seats and buckles with our flagship product, the Kool Seat. Our second goal is to put a little more swag in your life by promoting cool through temperature and style. Hence the launch of our SwaggyBear line of products including our custom plush SwaggyBear. Your child will feel cool while he/she sports a SwaggyBear. Be sure to check out our line of SwaggyGear and come back often as more swag will continued to be offered as we grow.
