It’s that time of the week again! Our inboxes have been filling up thick and fast with news of new products and services. We’re also keeping up-to-date with the latest and best initiatives and charity campaigns in aid of various important causes during the pandemic. Here are our highlights this week.
Welcoming in Stokke’s new addition for the Clikk high chair! They’ve just launched the new durable Ezpz placemat for the Clikk’s tray. It’s been made to stick firmly to the highchair tray to make dinners times with the littlest ones a tad less messy! Available in two colours, the Ezpz placemat is dishwasher safe, so it’s super easy to keep clean.
Another exciting launch from Silver Cross! The all-new Pioneer Eclipse is set to storm its way onto the pushchair market this year on the 26th May.
The Pioneer Eclipse is suitable from birth right up to 25kg and has been designed to handle every type of terrain. It really is a gorgeous travel system, combining the beautiful design with unique sculpted black fabrics and stunning rose gold highlights.
Incorporating all the features of the Pioneer travel system, the Eclipse provides on-the-go comfort and style. It’s also compatible with the Silver Cross Dream and Simplicity infant carriers to create a full travel system.
We’re mega excited to announce that Piccolo has just launched the first 100% recyclable baby food pouch in Europe. Honestly, we love these guys, and it’s not hard to understand why. The team at Piccolo are busy cooking up a campaign to educate parents and caregivers on recycling to empower them to become the engine of change.
Did you know, the baby industry currently sells upwards of 60 million pouches annually, ALL of which are non-recyclable at the date of this publishing. We applaud Piccolo and the socially responsible strides they’re making in the right direction when it comes to sustainability. We cannot shout about this brand more. Good work Team Piccolo!

I think we’re all very aware that right now it is more important than ever to keep our hands clean. BUT, it’s also essential to maintain the health of your skin, and you’ll find that most hand sanitisers with 60%+ alcohol content can leave hands feeling sore and dry.
KLORIS has launched its brand new No Rince Hand Sanitiser with an ultra caring formulation. The recipe is enriched with 1000mg CBD isolate, 60% alcohol and aloe vera to soothe and aid the healing process. It is also infused with tranquil Bergamot which will leave your hands smelling of warm summer holidays! Smells amazing to us!
We’re excited to introduce Little Inca, a new organic quinoa-based baby food brand that incorporates plant-based ingredients, scientifically proven to support gut health and cognitive development.
We love that Little Inca has been established with the most sensitive tummies in mind. They’ve set out to develop healthy, gentle alternatives to classic baby food, to help nurture your baby’s gut microbiome.
Their range of delicious recipes is influenced by their Peruvian heritage and tradition, and their styles of healthy eating.
Incredibly cute packaging too.
Fitting a car seat (especially for the first time) can be daunting, and with the country in lockdown those shops that would usually talk you through what to do are now unable to help. DON’T WORRY! In a bid to ensure parents are not left high and dry during the pandemic, Joie has launched a free, virtual car seat check, so families can be sure their little ones are travelling safely.
All you need to do is fill out a short questionnaire about the type of Joie car seat you have, along with your child’s weight and height. Joie will send you a link to your very own face to face meeting with one of their expert fitters. They will be able to talk you through fitting the seat and answer and questions you have.
