Taking the Stress out of Driving with Kids


Wallyhoo, Inc. is proud to announce the release of Backseat Wally™, a secure padded barrier that provides physical and visual separation between young passengers during car rides. This patented, first-of-its-kind product offers a solution for the growing epidemic of distracted  driving.

Researchers at Monash University have found that during a 16-minute car trip, parents spend about 20% of their time attending to children in the back seat instead of watching the road, and that children are 12 times more distracting to a driver than talking on a cell phone. When there’s conflict between these young passengers, the situation  worsens.

Company co-founders Scott Cahall and Bob Kiesow explain they developed Backseat Wally to help parents of young children cope with a difficult situation that happens every day. As fathers who have been there, they saw the need for a simple, immediate solution that reduces driver distraction and makes car rides less stressful for  everyone.


  • Fast and secure installation in the center rear seat using only existing safety belt. No tools or additional parts required.
  • Dense foam cushion is exceptionally strong but very light, so it can be moved in and out of the car easily, while a non-slip, rubberized fabric at key contact points gives Backseat Wally a firm hold on both the seat and the safety belt.
  • Available in six stylish colors to complement the interior of any vehicle and made of premium stain-resistant fabric that is easily cleaned.
  • Universal design works with sedans, SUVs, wagons, etc.
  • Convenient storage pockets for both kids.

Backseat Wally is proudly made in the USA. As part of the company’s commitment to healthy families, a portion of each sale will support Golisano Children’s  Hospital.
