Backseat Wally is the flagship product of Wallyhoo, Inc., a product development company conceived by partners Scott Cahall and Bob Kiesow.
We’ve all been there: driving our children to school, play dates, the grocery store, and even vacation destinations. There’s just something about kids being buckled in the back seat of a car that brings out the tension between them – the poking, the teasing, the looks. And when it heats up, it can be a serious distraction for parents behind the wheel. While sharing similar experiences and observations within our own families, the solution became clear: give each child their own space. Create something that’s a barrier between the kids, but doesn’t block the driver’s view out the back window. Something simple for the parents. Something soft for the kids. With a bit of engineering, a bit of creativity, and a healthy dose of trial and error, our solution became Backseat Wally.
Wallyhoo was founded by designers Scott Cahall and Bob Kiesow. Scott is an engineer and serial entrepreneur, while Bob is a creative director and brand expert. Together, they combine their diverse skills and parenting experiences to do what they enjoy – create great products that solve real problems faced by families on-the-go. Our flagship product is Backseat Wally, a first-of-its-kind solution for the growing epidemic of distracted driving.
