Kuling X Garbo&Friends, AlexandAlexa
Two kid super-brands Kuling Kids and Garbo&Friends have joined forces to present the most awesome kids’ collection of outwear and swimwear for AlexandAlexa this SS21. Think florals and function combined across key styles including rainwear jackets and pants, baby shell coveralls and teddy jackets.
Kuling is known for its durable, wearable and functional kids’ clothes while Garbo&Friends are revered for their poetic floral patterns and intricate details across their product range. Together, their new collection consists of 22 pieces created around two original patterns, Buttercup and Pear, drawn by Susann Karlsson Nemirovsky. We love that elements of this collection are made from recycled material, such as the lining fabric in shell wear and the polyester in rainwear and swimwear.
Prepare yourself for two incredible drops of this collection, the first is available now over at alexandalexa.com.
Everyone loves a gadget that makes parenting easier and new brand, NUPEAA is on a mission to provide parents with just that.
NUPEAA’s launch products include this brilliant self-heating, portable Bottle Warmer Active, which warms a bottle in as little as 4 minutes, anywhere, anytime. Traditional bottle warmers designed to be stationary, with just one function which means you’ll leave the house with multiple flasks and necessities, but not anymore. The new intelligent battery-powered, portable bottle warmer is ideal for parents on the go. If you pre-order now, you’ll receive a free, Anti Colic Baby Bottle, worth £17.95.
NUPEAA is the creation of husband and wife parenting duo, Dee and Dale, who were frustrated with the number of baby essentials they needed and the time it was taking to pack them whenever they wanted to leave the house. Their passion for making life easier for both themselves and other parents gave them the drive to establish NUPEAA during the first national lockdown.

From ‘tiny baby’ to 12 months, the newly launched My First Frugi range offers the softest, snuggliest organic cotton for baby’s delicate skin.

The My First Frugi Range allows parents to mix and match clothes with various different pieces.
The My First Frugi Range is a creative nod to Frugi’s Indian partners who ethically grow their organic cotton in order to produce their collection of beautiful soft clothes. The iconic Indian Runner Duck is instantly recognisable as it stands tall like a penguin, but instead of waddling, it runs very fast!
This unique collaboration brings the radiant joy of artist Keith Haring to a new generation, combining his iconic prints with the science at the heart of Etta Loves. The stunning patterns ensure that babies are stimulated and mesmerised, giving parents a precious moment of calm and, with Keith Haring, their first art gallery experience.
Etta Loves x Keith Haring collection is comprised of two designs: Baby and Brazil. Baby features one of Keith Haring’s most recognisable icons – crawling babies in high contrast black and white, scaled down to support babies’ visual and cognitive development from birth to around four months. The second design, Brazil, is a brightly coloured version of Keith Haring’s 1989 artwork of the same name, expertly recoloured and scaled to support babies from five months to around a year old.
