Let the sunshine in with the Tripp Trapp® chair in the new Sunflower Yellow! Sunflowers are known for being “happy” flowers, that symbolise longevity, which is especially relevant for this iconic chair. The Tripp Trapp® grows with your child, from newborn into adulthood and can be enjoyed for generations.
My Baba’s founder Leo Bamford says: “One of the first purchases I made when I was pregnant was a Tripp Trapp. Although I thought I’d pass it down from child to child, I ended up buying one for each of my three children. Now my eleven-year-old still insists on sitting in his bright red seat.”

Designed by child development experts, The Play Kits help parents make the most of playtime at every stage and support child brain development from infancy through toddlerhood. Each of the 14 stage-based Play Kits – serving ages 0–36 months—is packed full of expert-designed playthings and information, delivered at just the right developmental window every 2–3 months.
The Play Kits for babies (0–12 months) include toys and tools for building new neural connections and practicing fine and gross motor skills. The Play Kits for toddlers (months 13- 24) support a child’s natural curiosity by building new skills and encouraging exploration. The Play Kits for two-year-olds (25–36 months) encourage a child’s budding independence and teach early science and math lessons.
All Lovevery Play Kits also include Montessori-inspired board books with real images and stories of real people, along with a Play Guide that includes expert research, child development info, at-home activity ideas, and ways to play. The range of Play Kits was created from years of play studies, prototype testing and consulting with leading child development experts.
The Play Kits subscriptions start at £40 per month, with flexible payment options, and no commitment. Lovevery personalises each subscription to a child’s birth date/adjusted birth date and families keep the kits for more advanced learning and play as a child grows.

Practical and easy to use, the Travel Bear phone and mini tablet holder was designed by a mum-of-two to avoid the dangers posed by children holding an electronic device in their hands while travelling. An elevated, hands-free position keeps the screen at eye level, reducing the risk of travel sickness, improving posture and avoiding any pressure and discomfort from the child looking downwards.
With a simple, universal design, the phone and mini tablet holder is compatible with any vehicle and complements all car interiors. The sleeve is made from stretchy black fabric, which slides neatly over the car headrest to hold the device securely in place for the whole car journey. For added convenience, the phone and mini tablet holder also comes with a clear, fingerprint-sensitive window and dual entry headphone/charger port.
