bitybean
the cleverly compact child carrier

designed to carry a small child of 6 months to 3 years, a bitybean will not only change the way you carry your child but also lighten what you carry around when out and about! bitybean is a great solution for parents on the go.

it’s light weight and rolls up into a small bag that easily fits in any bag or purse. a bitybean gives you ultimate spontaneity allowing you to carry a child at a moments notice. no more lugging around that bulky backpack! it’s so cleverly designed – you can carry a child in the front or the back and it’s machine washable. check out these great features.

bitybean has just been named a semifinalist in the 2012 JPMA innovation awards at the all baby and child expo. we’ll let you know how they do!

if you have a young child in your life, you definitely need a bitybean.

want one? please support them on indiegogo and help them bring you a bitybean!
