Having a baby is supposed to be a wonderful experience, but for a world traveler like Vivian Chiang, the idea of it sounded like the end of global experiences. Before she was ever pregnant, Vivian and her husband, Joseph, his design partner, Bryan White, and his wife, Farrah, all realized that transportation could be made easier for families. As the four came together to create the Orbit system, they spoke to parents around the world to see what they would want in the ultimate travel stroller. Among the ideas they heard (and incorporated): car seats with side carrying handles so navigating narrow airplane aisles would be easier, one-handed folding so you can quickly gate-check a stroller, and a frame the folds down small so it can easily fit through the X-ray machine. Those features, along with using eco-friendly fabrics and placing the baby at table height, have made the Orbit stroller a favorite among globetrotting families.
Now a mom of three, Vivian continues to help the Orbit innovate (have you seen their new Double Helix carriage?), but she takes some time to care for herself. We asked the working mama what she'd like to receive this holiday season, and her list is filled with products we love too. Check it out!
