Graco’s Turn2Me is a brand new Isofix rotating car seat that swivels 360°, so you can get your child in and out of the car with ease.
The Turn2Me offers extended rearward facing from 0-18kg, (approximately birth to 4 years), and forward-facing from 9-18kg (up to 4 years), growing with your little one from baby to child.
The car seat’s high spec safety features and superb comfort makes the Turn2Me an excellent choice for new parents. For peace of mind, the one-click Isofix with an intuitive rearward/forward-facing locking system means the car seat installs easily and instantly. There’s also the added benefit of an integrated colour-coded indicator and a no re-thread harness so you can always be sure your little one is buckled up correctly.
The seat’s side impact protection ensures the child has powerful head and body protection at every stage of use.
Turn2Me offers five recline positions in both rearward and forward-facing modes, and improved neck and back support for ultimate relaxation. The no-rebound bar means there is extra legroom when in rear-facing mode so the child will be comfortable as they grow. With a 12-position loadleg parents can find the very best fit for their car. The headrest and harness are also easily adjusted together as your child grows.
Luxury padding from top to bottom makes this a super comfy car seat, while built-in side ventilation will help to keep baby cosy through the changing seasons.
Dream & Shine Sleep Trainer, Skip Hop
The 4-in-1 design works as a sleep trainer, soother, nightlight and alarm for 2 to six-year-olds. With simple child-friendly colour cues and music, children will easily understand the signals for bedtime and when is too early to get up in the morning.
The friendly cloud face lights up like a traffic light. Red means it’s time for bed, orange means it’s almost time to get up, and green means it’s okay to get up. Additional features include a soother mode, with two calming sounds (white noise and gentle rain) and three melodies.
There’s also a comforting nightlight with three brightness levels. We love that the Dream & Shine Sleep Trainer has a gentle wake-up call with a sweet song for your toddler or child.
The cheerful sun button on the side controls the lights and music, whilst the built-in power save feature ensures the trainer plays for 20 minutes maximum before automatically turning off.

Limited Edition Tummy Rub Butter, Mama Mio
Mama Mio has just launched a delicious new Limited Edition Tummy Rub Butter in a cocoabean and sandalwood scent.
Boasting the same signature formulation as the award-winning original tummy butter, but now infused with a soothing, 100% natural, scent of cocoabean and sandalwood for something a bit different. The new scent is designed to create a sense of calm to any bump care routine.
This go-to tummy rub butter is made from an Omega-rich formula designed to increase skin elasticity and moisture to help prevent stretch marks. The best bit? It’s vegan and cruelty-free, using 100% recyclable packaging.
We Are Futures is busy teaching children to be sun safe as they explore the great outdoors, thanks to Garnier Ambre Solaire and in association with the British Skin Foundation. A campaign that’s become more important than ever as only 53% of us admit to using suncare frequently while outdoors in the UK.
The Wrap Splat Hat programme features fun lessons and activities that have been designed and written by education experts that will help teach children to Wrap, Splat, Hat! This stands for WRAP up in a t-shirt (and wrap on some sunglasses), SPLAT on some sun cream (ideally SPF50), and of course wear a HAT!
Children aged 5-11 will love the Summer Explorers who bring sun safety messages to life in a memorable, meaningful way.
The programme meets curricular criteria in Personal, Health and Social (PSHE) Education and in English and also helps to develop children’s understanding of the world around them. The
free resources will empower little explorers to think about their own sun safety as well as sun safety for their friends and family and will keep them remembering to Wrap, Splat, Hat all summer long even after the lessons are over!
