Wooden toys for the bath

Just the right fit
Justafit adjustable sleepsuits by InfaSense will be officially launched by Bébélephant at Harrogate. Brainchild of mumpreneur Caroline Driver, who found that sleepsuits with legs too long caused a tripping danger for her own child, the Justafit was invented with hook and loop ankle straps which adapt the sleepsuit to the length of the child's leg and around the sleeves to stop sleeves covering little hands and dipping into their breakfast.

Kinder to little ones
ATTITUDE, a proudly Canadian brand introduces a revolutionary new line of carbon-neutral, environmentally friendly body and hair care products for children and babies: ATTITUDE Little Ones.
"With the launch of our new line, we wanted to offer consumers a contaminant-free alternative to existing body care products. I have taken a personal interest in developing formulas that can make our day-to-day lives healthier because it doesn't make sense to expose ourselves and our children to any level of toxins that can be potentially harmful," says Jean-François Bernier, President and Founder of Bio Spectra.

Get to Grips with Crawling

Creeper Crawlers Crawl Suits have grippable little bugs in key contact areas on the front of the legs and on the soles of the feet, which help tots crawl safely and happily, more successfully and for longer on all surfaces including the increasingly popular wooden and tile floors.
