History[edit]

Baby On The Move was founded in 1998 as a nationwide franchise company owned and operated by working mothers.[2] The firm claims to be 100% New Zealand owned and operated, thereby benefiting the local economy. As of 2012, the company is active in both the North Island and the South Island.[3] In 2012 Baby On The Move took part in the HK Baby Products Fair, with directors Claire Turner and Fena Bavastro representing them.[4][5]

Some of the products can be rented, while the remaining are available only for purchase.[3] They also conduct inspections to check whether the already existing child restraints are safe or not. Baby on the Move staff and franchisees have 'safe to go' accreditation which allows them to lawfully install a child seat to comply with New Zealand law and safety guidelines.
