The Measure: What’s Hot For Parents & Kids

CARAMEL TEEN

Introducing CARAMEL TEEN, the new capsule collection from the beloved London-based brand. Inspired and adapted from the children’s and womenswear collections, these are clothes to grow into in more ways than one, carefully curated for those in-between sizes and in-between years.

Our teens have long since grown out of their childhood things – and they’ve already started sneaking things out of your wardrobe. They are a time of discovery, rebellion, self-expression: of individualism, and finding their taste.

A balance of classic and contemporary, this collection is a testament to how teens dress today: bold prints, breezy fabrics, loose and laidback silhouettes.

Designed for holiday-making and seaside trips with friends, these are clothes to squeeze out every last moment of glorious sunshine and to take you wherever the moment leads. What a time to be young and carefree.

tonies® Launch Night Light Tonie

The Sleepy Sheep Night Light has four dimmable light settings and can be used with or without a Toniebox.  It has 100 hours of rechargeable battery life with an optional 30-minute timer.

Used with the Toniebox, the Night Light plays 90 minutes of bedtime melodies. And, for that extra special personal touch, parents (or grandparents!) can record their own bedtime stories onto the Tonie using the Mytonies app, helping to soothe children with a favourite story read by a loved one.

SnüzFino, Snüz

The nursery brand behind the SnüzPod has created a truly epic cot bed – supporting comfortable, safe and effortlessly stylish sleep through toddlerhood. With the modern nursery in mind, the stunning SnüzFino seamlessly combines contemporary accents and stunning design with the most adorable twist!

A truly striking piece of furniture, the thoughtfully designed Cot Bed easily converts into a toddler bed for little ones up to 4 years.

From 0+, the design has 2 mattress heights that can be adjusted as little ones grow, then when the time is right, the sides can be removed to reveal a fabulous cot bed for growing toddlers! The true highlight, however, is the unique canopy design (extension kit bought separately), promising to create the coolest den for little ones to cosy up in for a happy night’s sleep.

Wild Idol’s Rosé

Premium non-alcoholic brand Wild Idol’s Rosé is the ideal sparkling wine option to enjoy in the summer sun. The rosé is created using traditional winemaking skills and the highest quality fruit, elevating the choice of drink for those looking to reduce alcohol intake, whether at home with loved ones or at celebratory events in the park.

Available to buy on the Wild Idol website.

The Bear who had Nothing to Wear, Jeanne Willis and Brian Fitzgerald

Albie arrived wearing NOTHING but fur; he could have been either a Him or Her… Most teddy bears let their owner decide, but Albie would not, for a bear has its pride. But each outfit that Albie purchases – from fairy to pirate, from cowboy to elegant city gent – proves unsuitable in some way, and by the end of the week his bedroom is heaped with discarded clothes. How will he dress in order to feel like himself?

A hilarious story in verse that’s great to read aloud, about dressing up and one bear’s search for his own identity.

I’m Not Scared: A Big Hedgehog and Little Hedgehog AdventureBritta Teckentrup

This charming and relatable story about being afraid brings back Big Hedgehog and Little Hedgehog, two of Britta Teckentrup’s many marvelous characters who embody human emotions young readers can identify with and easily understand.

From dark basements to deserted streets, swooping birds to cars’ glaring headlights, menacing foxes to friendly cats, the two friends spend a day and evening confronting things that are both frightful and harmless.

As the two hedgehogs walk through their neighborhood, they talk casually about their fears and strategies for dealing with them, whistling, holding hands, counting, being still, and accepting kindness.

Few children’s illustrators working today are able to capture nature’s lush colors and textures quite like Teckentrup. Vibrating with warmth and charm, this gentle story offers valuable skills for identifying and dealing with the things that make us scared.
