As a company, Summer Infants has a long-standing tradition of dedication to infants and children. In 1985, William Lockett III sought a safe place to place his baby girl Summer while his hands were busy elsewhere. Out of this father’s desire to protect and nurture his sweet baby, the original Bouncy Seat was born and so was Summer Infant company.
Fast forward to 2001, at which time Jason Macari, a leader in innovative product development and a father to four young children, made the decision to purchase Summer Infant. With Jason’s experience and passion, a new vision for Summer Infant was created. This vision acknowledged the growing demands on families and emphasized the necessity to create products that encouraged bonding while lessening the stress on parents.
Summer Infant is dedicated to developing the safest and most innovative products that stand the test of time. Rest assured that every Summer product, from the crib to the bathtub and everywhere in between, has been designed, developed, crafted, and created with integrity, ingenuity, and safety in mind. We work closely with professionals including pediatricians, child development experts, and lactation consultants to ensure that they are safe and beneficial to the development of your child.
