From the latest toys, new baby products, and matching fashion to mindfulness activity books and new release strollers, here are this week’s discoveries.
Bugs World Range and Sky Themed Baby Rattles, Best Years
Our favourite knitted toy brand Best Years has released a new range of baby rattles, and we think the new characters are beyond super cute.
The sensory rattles are perfect for newborns, and any would make a fabulous gift for a new baba.
Baby Bottle Steriliser, Nuby
The new UV steriliser from Nuby uses ultraviolet light to cleverly sterilise bottles and baby items in just THREE mins. What’s more, unlike your traditional sterilisers, there’s no need for water or added chemicals, and you don’t have to wait for things to cool or dry.
An amazing piece of kit set to make life for new parents so much easier.
Perfect for first sips and weaning, Babycup First Cups are also brilliant for earlier on too as they’re suitable for cup-feeding infants. Babycups are ideal to have on hand to help through any times of feeding challenges or whilst establishing breastfeeding.

Me & Maeve Grace is a new super-cute brand that focusses on ‘mummy and me’ matching occasionwear.
Created by mama Katrina Parsons after the birth of her first child, we think this adorable collection is perfect for new and nursing mamas. What’s more, all pieces have been designed to be loved, worn and washed endlessly.
Definitely worth a look.
Sprout Pencils, Amazon
Introducing the world’s first and only patented plantable pencil!
The Sprout Pencil can grow into your favourite veggies, flowers or herbs once you’ve finished using it. The Sprout Kid’s Color Set contains a total of 8 eco-friendly, biodegradable, and high-quality Sprout pencils.
How do they work? Once they’re too short to use as pencils themselves, simply plant them and wait for them to bloom.
Marine Liquid Collagen Drink, Absolute Collagen
Absolute Collagen has been designed to be a fuss-free and easy addition to your beauty regime and is a great source of protein to help you feel your absolute best.
Just take it directly from the packet or add it to hot and cold drinks or food.
Steiff X Peter Rabbit Toys
Peter Rabbit 2 is due for release into cinemas this December, and we can’t wait. To commemorate Beatrix Potter’s adorable animal tales, Steiff has created this adorable collection of plush toys suitable for newborn up.
Two fabulous books both aimed at promoting mindfulness among children.
‘Chill Out’ focusses on the theme of mindfulness, allowing children to learn about its power and its practices via the fun activities and friendly text, while ‘It’ll Be OK’ concentrates on the theme of feelings, allowing children to learn about and make sense of their emotions –the highs, the lows and the in-betweens.
Both offer a collection of activities, puzzles, games, and crafts, created specifically with children aged five to eight.
Baby Daze, Amazon
New book release ‘Baby Daze’ reflects the humorous and sentimental experiences of parenting a newborn through poetry.
An ideal gift for new mums and mums-to-be to get an insight into the early days of parenting.
Day+, Joolz – coming soon
The Day from Joolz has had a revamp, with smart new pushchair the Day+ coming soon.
Promising a comfortable ride for baby and parents alike, the pushchair is also set to be packed with features that are easy to use with one hand. A blessing for all parents who have their hands full.
Nottinghill Carnival Online – 29th-31st August
Due to the current COVID 19 outbreak, the Notting Hill Carnival organisers have made the decision not to go ahead with the Notting Hill Carnival this year. Instead, the Carnival creatives are facilitating an alternative online version to get people grooving at home.
As well as a top line up for the weekend they are also launching #MyBestCarnival to get people rifling through old photos of Carnival past and sharing their top Carnival memories.
If you’ve had trouble getting hold of your favourite products from Organix lately, worry not – here is the answer.
Organix has launched its very own shop to help people stock up on their favourite snacks. What’s more, you can even personalise the Oaty Bars or Gruffalo Biscuits packs with your child’s name!
Ali, the alpaca and Flossi, the flamingo are brimming with attitude and sass! These cute toys talk back, wiggle and dance and will entertain your little ones (and big ones) for hours!
Press the microphone on the left foot for talkback, then listen as they will repeat what you say in a silly, sassy voice. Press the music note on their right foot to hear three funky Sassimals songs.

Dinoski, Reusable Hop Face Mask, My Baba
