Travel

O
nce upon a time in the dim and distant past, babies stayed at home. Now we don't let a little baby stop us from going where we want when we want. And there is now so much which will help us to just that!

There are things like lightweight pushchairs and now there are now some really compact ones on the market. Ideal if parents are flying as they fold small enough to be considered as cabin luggage. Baby carriers help move babies around and for many journeys they are ideal - mums just need help in choosing the right one.

Then there are all the things needed for a great time on the beach... nappies which can be used in the water, floats to support them while they learn to swim, clothes to prevent sunburn while they build sandcastles.

Many mums don't know about the many useful little items and they don't buy what they don't know about and this is where a good retailer can help. 

Let's make the most of summer!

 


zigi by mima

zigi by mima is a beautiful compact buggy. Underneath its sleek, modern and very mima-esque looks, zigi hides some sophisticated engineering. It’s sturdy, but still lightweight – only 8.4 kg/18.5 lbs - and is incredibly easy to handle.

Elegant looks combined with a simple, compact fold achievable with just one hand make zigi the most desirable travel companion for families on the go. With compact, one-hand folding, folding is a breeze. Hold baby in one arm, fold zigi with your free hand and leave the folded buggy to stand upright. A huge advantage of zigi is that the super compact folding size (L45 x W26 x H56 cm) is accepted as cabin luggage with most airlines. The innovative transparent wheels look good and are also extremely durable and lightweight and pioneering rear suspension facilitates a smooth ride.

Comfort, clean lines and functionality define this magnificent product, thereby making baby’s mode of transport not only sleek, but unique.

Clippasafe expands and improves travel range for 2019

Clippasafe, the experts in child safety for over 60 years, are to introduce some brand new products to their range this Spring and unveil some new and improved designs for popular travel products.

New to the car safety range are the improved Child View Mirror and brand new Car Seat Security Clip.

The Car Seat Security Clip is a simple but effective product that fixes between shoulder straps on a child’s car seat and prevents them from climbing out between the straps.

Managing Director Roger Cheetham is keen to respond to the demands of parents and the curiosity of toddlers and young children who can inadvertently find themselves in dangerous situations: "Where a risk is identified, we want to ensure that we’re one of the first to provide a solution and that’s why our range is always evolving. It’s also important that we keep improving our products to make them as safe and user friendly as possible, as well as giving them a fresh, modern look.”

Britax Rӧmer’s KIDFIX range expands

Britax Rӧmer expands its award-winning KIDFIX range with the launch of the 2-in-1 KIDFIX² child car seats.

Flexible on the go, for every trip
Joining the award-winning highback booster KIDFIX range, the KIDFIX² R and KIDFIX² S are 2-in-1 child seats suitable for children in the Group 2/3 car seat stage (3.5 to 12 years of age; 15 - 36 kg; up to 150cm in height). They come with state-of-the-art safety features and the option to remove the backrest for children above 135cm for added flexibility.

Always comfortable
Between the ergonomic headrest and V-shaped backrest, children will travel in comfort from day one. The headrest protects and provides comfort for a child’s head and neck and can easily be adjusted to the correct position with one hand, even while the child is sitting in the seat.

For older children
For children above 135cm, parents have the option to remove the backrest of the highback booster for instances when additional flexibility is required. The booster cushion of the KIDFIX² R and KIDFIX² S come with cutting-edge safety features extensively tested in Britax Römer’s crash test centre.

Made in Germany
All KIDFIX child seats are completely designed, developed and manufactured in Germany. This enables Britax Römer to carry out numerous tests at their in-house crash test facility and guarantee the highest possible quality. Seats in the KIDFIX range are also among the most tested child seats at EuroNCAP. That means they are regularly tested in the latest cars with the most up-to-date safety technologies – both with and without a backrest – with excellent results.

Jet away in style this summer with children’s swimwear from Splash About

Splash About is an innovative leader in the children’s swimwear market, having developed and designed some of the most advanced swimwear and swim aids available on the market today.

With daily pool practice children advance their swimming skills and gain confidence in the water quickly on holiday, so investing in the right swim kit is essential.

Splash About’s swimwear collection has UPF50+ sun protection as standard. Its designs are stylish, made from robust premium fabrics, yet are affordable and practical especially on holiday. The fabrics are quick drying, designed not to fade in the sun and the swimwear keeps its shape and colour even after prolonged use in chlorinated water.

The Go Splash Swim Vest is a hero travel product. This multi-award winning learn-to-swim floatation vest is lightweight, compact and conveniently packs flat so it’s space-saving in the suitcase. Yet these features don’t detract from its technical design, which delivers the level of buoyancy required to provide a safe, learn-to-swim experience for children from 1-6 years.

In this Swim Vest children have more freedom to move in the water as they are not reliant on armbands and importantly, they are positioned correctly in water for learning-to-swim.

Splash About’s products have been widely recognised by the parenting media; its Happy Nappy was awarded Best Swimming Product for the second consecutive year at the 2019 Mother&Baby awards.

This swim-school approved, leak-proof swim nappy is suitable from birth; reusable and reliable, it works effectively without a paper swim nappy underneath, so no need to pack bulky disposables; making it environmentally friendly as well as space saving. Match it with a rash top or wear underneath a UV sun suit for all day protection in or out of the water.

Splash About has children’s swim and sunwear covered all year round, at home or abroad.
