Baby Carrier Harmony Dark Green, BabyBjörn

During the pandemic, many of us started to spend more time outdoors, and families across the world have taken their new-found appreciation for nature into their everyday life. Consequently, designs inspired by nature have been trending with everything from patterns with forest details to giant indoor plants filling our homes (and social media feeds). Amongst new families, this trend has manifested in an increased interest in spending more time in nature with their kids. Parents happily reach for neutral colours, toys in natural materials like wood, and baby food with clean, organic ingredients.

This special Dark Green colour has been developed by the in-house design team at BabyBjörn. The Pantone has been carefully selected to be gender-neutral and versatile, making the product easy to combine with different outfits and colours.

Dark Green Baby Carrier Harmony is the perfect baby carrier for active parents who want to explore the world with their baby comfortably, ergonomically, and effortlessly stylishly.

What’s On

Roald Dahl Story Company

The Roald Dahl Story Company today announced three exciting new theatre productions:

  • A new musical for young audiences of The Enormous Crocodile, co-produced with Leeds Playhouse and Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre.
  • A new theatrical reading of Roald Dahl’s The Magic Finger presented for online release for schools and families, co-produced with the Unicorn Theatre.
  • A spectacular large-scale circus, which is currently in development, inspired by Roald Dahl’s stories and featuring a range of beloved characters.

The Roald Dahl Story Company’s in-house theatre division created and developed the productions. Led by Artistic Director Jenny Worton and Executive Producer Anna Schmitz, the theatre division was set up in 2018 to create and produce innovative productions inspired by Roald Dahl stories in collaboration with world-class artists and leading theatre producers.

These productions join a major new musical of The Witches, co-produced with the National Theatre, which was announced last month, to form a growing slate of new theatre adapted from Roald Dahl’s work. Alongside these shows the Roald Dahl Story Company currently has a further four productions under commission and development.
