9 Cool Things For Parents & Kids
Bear & Beau
Bear & Beau creates luxury home decor for children, featuring an exclusive range of hand-inked illustrations, premium wallpapers and lifestyle objects. Founded by award-winning creative director Corinne Caddy-Townshend, each illustration is created with bespoke bamboo pens in her home studio in south London. Accompanying each design, you’ll find quotes that provide an insight into the inspiration behind the artwork she develops for Bear & Beau. We really like the nature-inspired ‘Mini Beasts’ wallpaper, which is decorated with creepie crawlies. Perfect for a playroom.
This multi-award-winning British baby brand creates soft, eco-friendly shoes and products for babies. Crafted from natural, organic and environmentally conscious fabrics, each item comes wrapped in biodegradable, plastic-free packaging. From fleece baby booties, blankets and accessories, each piece is designed with purpose as the brand combines expertise in infant developmental to create functional pieces that actively support your baby’s cognitive function. Best of all, all purchases come with a lifetime replacement guarantee.
Flattering and adaptable, HATCH’s clothes are designed to look and feel great for expectant mothers on the go. The New York label’s collections are defined by chic, billowy silhouettes that will remain everyday favourites, even after the baby is born. Ariane Goldman launched HATCH with a goal of helping women look and feel their best during every stage of pregnancy and beyond. Of the lot, we love the ‘Alice' dress, which is cut from airy cotton-voile that's perfect for balmy days and has pressed pleats and a shirred back for a flexible fit. The best part? You'll still wear it long after your little one is born.
JetKids by Stokke
JetKids has created the first ride-on, carry-on, sleep-on suitcase, offering premium travel products to make both long-haul and short-haul journeys less stressful for the whole family. Combining Scandinavian style and aviation-inspired design, Stokke offers two different products. RideBox is a suitcase with ample storage. Once packed, your little one can ride it (or pull it) through the airport, train or ferry terminal for stress-free transportation. BedBox is exactly the same, but once the seat belt sign is off, transforms from a suitcase to an in-seat bed in five simple steps.
Little Tummy is a new paediatrician-developed baby food brand. Meals are cold-pressure processed to ensure freshness and are delivered direct to your door. Developed by Dr Sophie Niedermaier-Patramani and backed by supermodel, philanthropist and proud mother of five Natalia Vodianova, this product is designed to support busy mums by providing an alternative to traditional, on-the-go baby food, which – whether organic or not – is generally older than the baby itself and cooked at high temperatures to make them shelf stable. Comparable to home cooking, Little Tummy meals include the likes of cauliflower and kale-filled ‘Brain Food’. Cooked up with your baby’s brain in mind, the ingredients help to develop learning, motor function and memory.
Luna Kids Cinema
This kids cinema event is run by Luna Cinema, the country’s leading producer of open-air cinema events. Screenings follow one simple formula: a classic film on a big screen in a beautiful or prestigious setting. For Luna Kids Cinema the team has expanded its kid-friendly repertoire and is putting on multiple screenings each day at more accessible times. With kid’s activity areas, hot food and a full bar on site, it’s an ideal spot for the whole family to enjoy a day out this summer. Look out for locations in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Cheshire, Hertfordshire, Kent, Bath and Hampton Court Palace, Dulwich Park and Harewood House.
Grace Mothers – Letters To Our Children
A collection of letters written by mothers from all over the world to their children, Grace Mothers features over 60 extraordinary women from different fields and is both an intimate insight into the joys and tribulations of motherhood and a celebration of mothers and their children everywhere. Honest, inspiring, occasionally surprising, often funny and frequently poignant, they capture the essence of what motherhood means for each writer. A perfect present for new mums.
Sunnykids 2019 kids’ collection is full of adorable, safe, and fun products – perfect for summer holidays in the garden or abroad. This year, there’s a full range of pool floats (we’ve got our eye on the inflatable flamingo ring toss game) and toys to suit home paddling pools and summer holiday destinations, which include colourful patterned towels and fans shaped like ice lollies. Outdoor mealtimes will be a breeze with the brand’s range of adorable food and drinkware: think tumblers, sippers, sippy cups and kids’ plates.
Bonnet à Pompon
This bohemian clothing company recently opened a store in London, and we’re obsessed. The Spanish brand offers a sweet, relaxed and attractive style that flatters children thanks to its attention to detail and exclusive colours. Each of the elegantly designed products guarantee comfort as they’re made with 100% natural materials such as cashmere, linen and cotton. Whether you’re shopping for newborns or boys and girls aged up to 12, we suggest checking out its capsule selection, which offers everything from 70s-style dresses to lion t-shirts.
