REVIEW: The RyRy Scallop

Safe, stylish and sustainable; RyRy Scallop is a must-have for travelling with toddlers this Summer

Brainchild of mum and entrepreneur Leah Davis, RyRy Compact is this summer launching its first innovative child travel product set to transform the lives of stressed-out parents with toddlers in tow; the iconic RyRy Scallop.

The RyRy Scallop epitomises the very best in class when it comes to child car seats. Featuring engineering that is second-to-none, designed here in Britain, it transforms the once cumbersome car seat into a foldable and easily portable piece of hand luggage for parents on the go.

Designed for toddlers 76cm to 105cm in height (15 months to approx. 4/5 years) with size, safety, style and sustainability in mind. Measuring in at hand-luggage size (52x40x25cm) and weighing just 9kg, it’s the perfect option for parents always on the go with little ones in tow, whether they’re running errands or heading off on holidays.

The RyRy Scallop has been rigorously tested for front, rear and side impact, featuring SiP technology, and meets the strictest EU R129 safety standards making it one of the safest on the market in its size class.

Available in three core colourways, True Charcoal, Grey and Black and White, and now limited-edition Blush, each colourway includes luxe detailing throughout, from leather trims to sporty flashes of the brand’s signature neon colouring – there’s a car seat to match every car, parent and toddler.

With sustainability at the core of everything RyRy Compact does, it was vital for mum Leah to build a car seat with the planet in mind. Each RyRy Scallop uses sustainably sourced, anti-bacterial Merino Wool and plant-based polymer foam for its comfortable seats, and the travel bags are made of recycled PET yarn (made from old plastic water bottles). RyRy Compact is also an Official Partner of the Big Blue Ocean Cleanup, funding the removal of 5kg of plastic from the world’s oceans for every car seat sold.

Leah Davis, RyRy Compact founder and mum-trepreneur, said: “Most car seat brands overlook size and convenience for parents. At RyRy Compact, we believe that smaller is better. Smaller because no one has enough space anymore, smaller because it’s easier to get around and smaller because we use less of the planet’s resources. Small just fits with our way of life. Safety and sustainability were non-negotiable aspects for us and we feel that we have created a stylish product that we want to use and hopefully others will too!”
