Eat&Play, The NEW 4-in-1 Highchair from Micalite

Micralite is forever on a mission to make life easier for parents, and their latest launch, the pioneering new highchair – Eat&Play – is certainly no exception. The new 4-in-1 highchair is designed to grow with your child from six months to five years, taking little ones from meal time to play time. And the best bit? It looks great within any interior. It’s lightweight and portable, so whether you’re using the chair in your kitchen, or your living room, it’ll fit right in. It’s stylish and practical in equal measure, with a dark stone coloring complemented by beech wood legs that come with non-slip foot caps to protect your floor.

4-in-1 highchair from six months to five years

Eat&Play adapts and grows with your child, taking them from their first meals with the removable four-position tray and five-point harness, to family meals at the dining table. With just four clicks, it then adapts easily into a junior chair and table as they get older, making it perfect for both eating and playing.

It’s super-easy to clean too. The tray is dishwasher safe (music to our ears!) and the seat pad and harness can be removed and wiped clean,

Eat&Play is available to purchase on the Micralite website. RRP £125.

VIVIO Junior Multivitamin

Coughs, sniffles and sneezes are those all too familiar sounds that remind us that winter is on the way! For little ones, it can mean days off nursery or school and missed activities, so helping your child be at their healthy best is understandably a top priority for parents.

New research by VIVIO® Junior reveals that over 80% of parents worry their child doesn’t get all of the nutrients they need from their diet alone. New VIVIO Junior Multivitamin provides complete nutritional support for little ones aged 1 year+, packed with 12 vitamins, Zinc and Iodine to support their immunity and cognitive function, and formulated in accordance with the latest research and nutrient guidelines for babies and children. What’s more, VIVIO Junior has just won Best Multivitamin at this year’s National Parenting Product Awards!

 

As the coughs and colds get into full swing, VIVIO Junior Cough Syrup has a 100% natural, hydrating and soothing formula that’s suitable for little ones from 1, and helps to regulate a cough without (and this is important) suppressing it. It even tastes delicious, with natural honey and strawberry.

VIVIO Junior Multivitamin is £10.99 and VIVIO Junior Cough Syrup is £8.99. Available from VIVIOJunior.com, independent pharmacies and Amazon.

BABY born Bathtub

Suitable for children aged 3 years and over, mini mummies and daddies will love to soak BABY born in a nice warm bath after a long day of adventures.

The new tub is blue on the inside and white on the outside with a cute wave feature. Little ones will also have lots of fun exploring its interactive elements to enhance playtime. If the tub is empty, splashing sounds will play, and if little ones fill up the tub with real water, they can give BABY born a nice shower as the water sprays through from the shower head. If the light switch next to the shower is pressed, the outer shell of the bath lights up in different colours adding extra fun.

The BABY born bathtub is the perfect addition to your little ones’ playtime, supporting their imaginations and putting their daily bath and bed routines into practice. We also love that the product comes in 100% plastic-free and full recyclable fuss-free packaging!

Little Woolly Vision

Introducing Little Woolly Vision, the multi-award winning stop-motion animation company adding a unique woolly twist to traditional nursery rhymes, creating sing-along videos that parents will love, just as much as the little ones do! Stitched with songs exclusively written for Little Woolly Vision, creative characters and lots of laughter, the unique animation company has already taken the internet by storm with its cheeky take on some of the classic songs of childhood and are now delighted to release their next and 14th video – Old MacDonald Had a Farm!

Quite literally hand-made with love and bursting with charm, the hand-stitched fabric characters step away from the mass-produced computer-generated animations that flood the streaming services, offering something fresh and new, that is also rooted in British heritage. All videos are created using stop-motion animation, which not only adds a unique and tactile look to each rhyme, but also encapsulates that nostalgic, quintessentially British feel children (and adults!) have loved for generations.

Latest Books

I’m (Almost) Never Bored, Anna Milbourne

A wonderful story about a BORED little girl, deprived of screen time, who learns to have fun with her imagination. “I’m BORED!” wails a little girl after her screen time is cut short. “That’s great!” her dad says with a grin. “Being bored comes right before having a Really Good Idea.”

After an initial protest, the little girl dives into her imagination and takes the reader with her on a whirlwind ride of pure fun. A cardboard box becomes a magical train, the washing machine inspires an imaginary trip into space, a scribbly doodle becomes a hungry spaghetti monster, and ants in the garden lead her into an escapade in the Funny Bug Circus.

In a world where children can find entertainment at the touch of a button, it’s ever more important that they have time to be bored – because that’s where they have the space to come up with their own Really Good Ideas.

The Very Hard Book, Idan Ben-Barak and Philip Bunting

Can you …

Forget this line?

Dig half a hole?

This book asks you to imagine and think about some things. That sounds easy, right? Anyone can think stuff. You don’t even need to be standing up. We shall see. Good luck.

Metacognition is the act of thinking about thinking and forms the basis of all critical thought. It is also a concept that comes easily to children whose inquisitive nature makes them a natural at engaging in abstract questions and open-ended thinking. The Very Hard Book starts that ‘thinking’ journey and has a great deal of fun in the process.
