What is the background of Petit Coulou? When did it start and how has it evolved since then?
Petit Coulou® designs and manufactures products to facilitate the transportation of children. It is a Canadian company incorporated in 2006 which manufactures in North America and Asia, and is certified by We Connect International.
It all started in the winter of 1998 when Nathalie Bourgoin gave birth to her second son. Each time she had to run an errand, Nathalie struggled to keep her little one warm by dressing him up in his puffy snowsuit. Not waking him proved to be quite the feat. Coming to the rescue of her daughter and grandson, Nathalie’s mother Murielle Charbonneau designed a cover that mothers could easily slip over the car seat as their babies slept peacefully. And with that, the Petit Coulou® brand was born. From day one, this revolutionary product has helped countless parents ensure that their little bundles of joy stay safe and snug.
Over the past ten years, the Petit Coulou® family has grown! The brand has expanded its team with the aim of showcasing and selling its products all across Canada. Recently, Petit Coulou® has also made its mark throughout the U.S., and even Germany. At Petit Coulou®, our team remains deeply committed to spreading the brand’s success.
What are the most popular and/or newest services and products from Petit Coulou?
We started the company with the Winter baby car seat cover, and it remains our best seller. Over the years, we modified our winter version to adapt to the warmest and humid weather. Since parents cannot use mosquito repellant on infants, we created a Summer version that helps our active parents to enjoy summer with their baby, without using chemicals. This Summer version prevent against wind, rain, UVA & UVB Rays. You can help protecting your child against the Zika Virus. We also offer a Stroller version for the 3 seasons, for Wind, rain and UV rays protection we call a 4-in-1, and we offer a vast assortment of accessories to complete your Petit Coulou products.
What sets Petit Coulou apart from other stroller and baby product companies on the market?
Petit Coulou® is not a sleeping bag. Because of its unique structure, Petit Coulou® will not touch your baby. No need for extra layers with Petit Coulou®; your baby will not overheat. Your baby will not perspire because it is always the right temperature.
Petit Coulou® creates an environment allowing unrestricted movement of hands and feet. Double isolation keeps your baby warm, while also staying safe and secure because the car seat harness system is adjusted directly on your baby. Your baby stays calm and undisturbed in the Petit Coulou® controlled environment. With Petit Coulou® you can transfer your baby from the bed to the car seat in 47 seconds, without waking him or her Petit Coulou® is also an anti-paparazzi cover since it can protect from intruding cameras! An insulated pad is included which is not for use in car but can provide additional warmth when outdoors. Petit Coulou® is the only patented protected car seat cover for baby with a dome concept (igloo effect).
