The Measure: What’s Hot For Parents & Kids

From skincare secrets to captivating children’s books and fashion-forward finds, there’s a lot to unpack. For mamas, there’s the coolest bomber jacket from Baukjen and bum bag from Kerikit, the perfect combo for the school run. And if you’re a football fanatic, we’ve got some super-cool footie news from Joie, plus, Bugaboo is here to colour your world with their latest hues. It’s a rollercoaster of parenting thrills, and we’re here for every twist and turn!

On the My Baba Wishlist…

Nomi Chair, Stokke

From munchkin to mini-adventurer, the Stokke Nomi has you covered. This chair is the perfect futuristic-looking companion for every age and stage. Whether your little explorer is just starting out on their weaning journey or your savvy sidekick is ready for new dining adventures, the Stokke Nomi is there to make each moment comfy and cool. And let’s not forget the secret ingredient to healthy seating habits – ergonomic support that encourages the quirkiest of sitting poses while ensuring top-tier comfort.

It’s thought that the Nomi was created as a result of what Peter Opsvik had learned from the design of the Tripp Trapp. The Stokke Nomi Chair is a lightweight champ at only 5kg and is made from eco-friendly materials too. While the Tripp Trapp rocks the classic wooden look, the Nomi brings a sleek and modern vibe. If the Tripp Trapp is a timeless classic, the Nomi is the futuristic cool kid. Both, of course, are pros at growing up alongside your child – just like the Tripp Trapp, the Nomi knows the drill and adjusts like magic – without tools.

Desert Taupe is available for the Bugaboo Fox 5, Bugaboo Donkey 5, and essential bags, including the Bugaboo organizer, Bugaboo changing backpack, and Bugaboo changing bag. This tone complements the stroller perfectly, ensuring a cohesive and gender-inclusive appearance.

Manchester City unveil Joie as official stadium naming partner

In a groundbreaking move, Manchester City has unveiled Joie, the baby gear brand, as the Official Stadium Naming Partner for the Academy Stadium. This historic partnership not only solidifies Manchester City’s position as a leading club in the Women’s Super League but also marks the first instance in the league where a commercial agreement for stadium naming rights has been secured.

To commemorate this significant milestone, members of the entire Manchester City Women’s team, including captain Steph Houghton, Chloe Kelly, and Demi Stokes, gathered for a special ceremony. They cut a colossal orange Joie bow, symbolizing the new identity of the stadium. Joining them in celebration were Gavin Makel, Managing Director of Manchester City Women, and David Welsh, Senior Managing Director of Joie, who graced the event with their presence.

David Welsh, Senior Managing Director, Joie, said: “Joie is a family-first brand committed to making childhood and family days out as joyful as possible.

“We believe that football offers an unforgettable experience for families and by partnering with Manchester City Women and becoming the Official Stadium Naming Partner, we aim to make it truly accessible for all – whether that’s families with babies or parents of older children who will love playing in the Fan Zone.
