The Measure: What’s Hot For Parents & Kids

Modibodi Launches ‘Design A Pair, Get A Pair’ Competition

Calling all budding artists, activists, illustrators and fashion designers! Global absorbent apparel brand Modibodi announces its first-ever global youth design competition. ‘Design a pair, get a pair’ gives you the opportunity to create a design to show the world how powerful periods can be.

Modibodi’s competition invites you to design what ‘period power’ means to you, using whatever medium you like, with the goal of starting an important conversation about period equality around the world. ‘Period power’ could mean how you’re treated on your period, feeling confident to talk about your body, or all people being able to access period care without shame.

Design, draw, make or create for the change to have your entry produced on Modibodi’s newest range. The first 300 entries will receive a free pair of period underwear just for taking part, so what are you waiting for?

How to enter

You can submit your design to the panel of judges via the form on Modibodi’s website. The first 300 entrants (100 per region: AU & NZ, UK, EU) will receive a code to redeem a FREE pair of Modibodi. Three winners will have their designs produced on the newest range of Modibodi period underwear.

Head here to read the competition’s full terms and conditions.

iCandy Releases the Iconic Core as a Stroller-only Pushchair

iCandy’s best-kept secret is out. The iCandy Core’s multi-mode wheelbase makes this ground-breaking pushchair a must-have for new or expectant parents. Designed to tackle every journey and adaptable for every age and stage, the super-stylish Core is now available as a stroller-only option. 

The stunning Core with its trademark LED visibility hub lights boasts a sleek clamshell seat unit which reclines with an angle between the seat and backrest of over 150 degrees, meaning it can be defined as truly ‘lie-flat’ and therefore suitable from birth until around four years, as it provides the largest seat unit in the iCandy range. A flat back is vitally important for your baby’s health, especially during the early stages as this can help support with spinal development and growth and can help to prevent reflux and aid growing lungs and internal organs. These exceptional benefits of the iCandy Core means a separate carrycot is not required, saving on both cost and storage!
