The Rock Stepper Playmat

The Rock Stepper playmat is designed to support early learning and development from first steps to phonics. Suitable from birth, the Rock Stepper has been developed to be accessible and easy to enjoy.

The app provides game ideas and challenges, carefully developed by experienced Primary School teachers. You can also use the versatile Rock Stepper flash cards to encourage gameplay, boost brain development, as well as improve fine motor skills.

The Rock Stepper playmat offers enough support to create a safe space for bumps and falls but isn’t squishy enough to get in the way of first steps and balance.

G Herbal SKIN, Starter Pack 60 Capsules

G Herbal SKIN is a new addition to a lineup of natural Balinese super supplements hailing from the rich tradition of potent indigenous plants renowned for their remarkable health and wellness benefits. Originally a sensation in Indonesia, these supplements have just made their debut in the UK.

Inspired by the age-old practice of Jamu, rooted in 1,300 years of traditional Indonesian herbal remedies sourced from the lush volcanic rain forests of Java and Bali, our G Herbal SKIN range stands out. This exceptional formula inhibits the growth of acne-causing bacteria while stimulating new cell growth to heal scarring. It also aids in collagen production, effectively plumping the skin and reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

For optimal results, the recommended dosage is two capsules in the evening following a meal, though, in cases of severe acne, you may increase the intake to four capsules per day.

This collection features a natural blend of Lavender and Sweet Marjoram essential oils in the Bath Oil and Pillow Mist, specifically designed to soothe and relax active young minds, fostering a sense of tranquility before bedtime. The Bubble Bath is ideal for creating bubbles in warm bathwater or as a gentle cleanser for your little one’s delicate skin. The Pillow Spray offers a delicate mist to be applied to bed linens and pajamas, ensuring it dries before tucking your child in.

Dermatologically tested and suitable for sensitive skin, these products are vegan-friendly and cruelty-free, making them a thoughtful and gentle choice for your child’s bedtime ritual.
