The Measure: What’s Hot For Parents & Kids

NEW: Bugaboo Butterfly’s NEW Wheeled Board +

When long walks lead to tired legs, the Bugaboo Butterfly comfort wheeled board + is an absolute game-changer of a pushchair accessory. It makes it easier to head out with both your baby and toddler, as your toddler can sit or stand on the board. (They’ll LOVE it, too.)

Weighing in at only 1 kg, it attaches to the Bugaboo Butterfly in just a few clicks (no adapters needed!) and when it’s not in use, it can be easily folded into an upright position.

The wheeled board is available to use from approximately two years, up to 20 kg, ideal for older siblings who still need rest.

RRP: £104.95

Polarn O. Pyret Second Hand

In a move hailed by industry experts, iconic Swedish kids’ clothing brand Polarn O. Pyret’s launches their second-hand collection across the entire clothing collection. Raising the bar for slow-fashion and re-commerce, Polarn O. Pyret is the only known major fashion brand to embed re-commerce into its core business model by offering second-hand ‘in-house’ as a brand service.

Building PO.P Second Hand as a brand service offering, means PO.P have created a go-to destination for buyers and sellers of PO.P pre-loved at a time when the norm is for brands to externalise their second-hand offer to third-party resellers.

With a long-standing vision that every piece of PO.P clothing is owned by at least three children, PO.P Second Hand is not only the ultimate proof point for a value proposition rooted in longevity, it’s also a clear commitment to guaranteeing the vision’s delivery.

Oh, Armadillo!, Ellie Irving

Oh, Armadillo! is a hilarious tale exploring the endlessly humorous mishaps of an Armadillo who wants to host the most amazing party.

Armadillo sets out to please the jungle animals with classic party treats and games, but everything turns out a little peculiar… like a sponge cake made of sponges and an actual musical chair!

Children will roar with laughter at the silly scenarios and very funny mishaps that Armadillo creates whilst planning his party. He misinterprets the most popular party games, like Pass the Parcel, in the funniest ways.

Oh, Armadillo! combines laugh-out-loud humour with teaching a gentle lesson that there’s nothing wrong with thinking differently.
