Many families will have made plans for a UK staycation this summer, with trips to Cornwall, Devon, and the Lake District being top of the list for a British family holiday. Lots of us will be making plans closer to home, with day trips to local parks and attractions being booked in advance.
Whatever you’re up to, we recommend taking a look at Stokke’s Flexi Bath and JetKids BedBox – two fantastic products useful for a UK or home staycation, as well a great investment for future trips away in the years to come.
Packing for a family holiday
Deciding on what to pack for a family holiday can be eventful, and that’s why we recommend writing a list of all the practical things you’ll need to take with you. A holiday packing checklist will enable you to prioritise exactly what you’ll need.
The age-old dilemma of whether or not to pack a baby bath has been solved by genius Norwegian company Stokke.
The Stokke Flexi Bath is a lightweight portable baby bathtub that folds flat when not in use, making it ideal for trips away. The Flexi Bath benefits from a non-slip base and has a heat-sensitive plug for safe bathtime wherever you are.
Whether it’s a camping trip, a hotel stay, or a self-catering apartment, the Stokke Flexi Bath is a must-pack item and a great solution for those looking to save on space.
“The Flexi Bath is such a genius invention. It’s foldable and easy to transport, making it the perfect travel companion if you are thinking of venturing further afield this summer.” says My Baba founder, Leo Bamford.
Best baby bath for newborn to four years old
Stokke’s foldable bath is suitable for newborn babies and children up to four years of age, so it’s a bathtub that’s going to last.
Bathing a newborn can be a scary experience, especially for first-time parents. What we love about the Flexi Bath is that it can specifically cater for even the tiniest of babies with its design-awarded Stokke® Flexi Bath® Newborn Support.
Newborn bath support
The Flexi Bath’s Newborn Support takes the shape of a beautifully curved seat designed to hold your baby at an optimal ergonomic position. The newborn seat makes bathing your newborn super-easy for you, and ultra-comfy for your baba. The seat easily attaches to the bath and can be removed once your baby is strong enough to sit up unaided.
Is it a bath, or is it a paddling pool?
If you’re chilling out at home this summer, why not let your little ones enjoy some sensory water fun in the safe and secure environment of the Flexi Bath? We think Stokke’s baby bath doubles up as a fantastic paddling pool for little ones to splash about in.
For growing babies and sharing
The Flexi Bath X-Large comes with all the same stylish and popular features of the original (and yes, it’s still foldable!), but it’s 25% bigger, making it perfect for toddlers or siblings to enjoy water fun together.
Your intrepid explorers will surely need a suitcase to pack for their summer adventures, home or away. The Stokke JetKids BedBox is the world’s only ride-on, carry-on, and sleep-on suitcase, and we think it’s a great investment for your mini traveller.
“The JetKids BedBox is the number one long-haul flight companion for any family with a toddler. It can transform an economy airplane seat into a little bed which makes sleeping in an aircraft super simple and comfortable for your little ones.” Leo reports.
Thanks to its multiple functions, the JetKids BedBox is a popular piece of kit amongst parents and children alike, and is proving to be a staycation hit this year.
Premium suitcase for kids
A robust and premium suitcase for kids, the JetKids BedBox is both fun and functional, offering ample storage for all their must-haves. What’s more – the suitcase can be opened from the top, so once packed, you reach the items you need with ease.
“My youngest has great fun deciding on which teddies to pack for our overnight camping expeditions in the back garden.” Says Leo.
“It’s a spacious suitcase that children can ride on, and with front swivel wheels it’s easy and fun to manoeuvre whether we’re in an airport, or enjoying family fun closer to home.”
