When we say 10 years for a car seat, we mean it. We want parents and caregivers to know that when they need us, we will be there. We’re in the same boat the whole trip and ready for any bumps that might come along the way.
Diono entered the market in 1999 with a commitment to safety, original design and smart travel solutions. Our core values have never changed, but our desire to innovate has grown. This dedication led Diono to introduce the industry’s first expandable booster, Monterey, ingeniously designed to grow with kids up to 8 years old. But we didn’t stop there, and soon Diono became the brand behind the original Radian all-in-one convertible car seat. Diono never compromises on safety and is the first brand to test accessories. In keeping with our #ColorTheJourney ethos, Diono seats come in a rainbow of colors, allowing little passengers to boldly express themselves and express their style as we celebrate #JoyOfTheJourney together.
