Swimwear specialist Splash About has received two gold awards at the 2020 MadeForMums parenting awards.
For the third consecutive year, the brand’s flagship swim-school approved swim nappy, the Happy Nappy, has been awarded gold in the Best Family Travel Product under £15 category. The UV Sun & Sea Suit secured gold in the Best Family Travel Product £15-£30.
“In these uncertain and worrying times, to receive the heart-warming news that we have secured the top spot in two highly competitive categories at the MadeForMums parenting awards brightened our day,” commented Bernadette Spofforth Managing Director of Splash About International.
“These awards are important to us because they are judged not only by parents who really put the products through their paces but also the parenting industry’s critical experts. The family travel sector comprises of an immensely broad range of products and the criteria is not just based on travel friendly products, but quality, value, ease-of-use, durability, longevity and design. We are very proud to tick all these boxes and it’s a bonus that both our products can be used equally at home in the garden as well as abroad.” Bernadette concluded.
Over 150,000 UK babies swim each week in a Happy Nappy, it’s insisted upon by over 90% of UK swim schools and considered best practice by British Standards (BSi) guidelines for baby swimming. Since its redesign in 2017 the Happy Nappy has gone on to win gold in 18 UK parenting awards; this is because its unique ergonomic shape, flexible but fitted gusset and specialist pressure fabric ribbing at the waist and legs, offers the best protection on the market against faecal leaks in the water.
The new UV Sun & Sea Wetsuit is a unique combination of a supple neoprene body and soft flexible Nylon Lycra arm and side panels. It provides UPF50+ sun protection but also maintains core body warmth for longer play in or out of the water. It’s ideal for a staycation or chilly pools or seas and windy beaches or gardens. Since its launch in summer 2019 it has also received gold in the prestigious Mother & Baby awards, for Best Travel Product under £30.
