Celebrate the 30th birthday of Tutti Bambini at this year’s Kind + Jugend fair!

Kind + Jugend 2016 marked a milestone year in the history of Tutti Bambini, presenting the rebirth of their well-established brand. The re-brand saw them launch a new look, new style and a fantastic range of new products. Visitors to this year’s leading international nursery trade fair should expect no different from the exciting family run company.

2017 commemorates the 30th Anniversary of Tutti Bambini. In 1987, Michael and Debra Samuel opened their doors to expectant parents, offering them unique, quality products from their little shop in the heart of London. Since then, their family has grown, and so has their brand.

Visitors are invited to celebrate the 30th birthday of Tutti Bambini on Thursday, Friday and Saturday of the show from 5pm (Hall 11.3 Stand B-78) and enjoy some bubbly with team Tutti!

The first of Tutti’s key product launches is KOJI®, the full size micro travel system. Visitors to Tutti Bambini’s stand in 2016 were given a first look at the exciting new city pushchair, and one year on, KOJI® is ready to hit the ground running. KOJI® has been designed for the parents on the go, or for those who prefer a smaller pushchair. It offers a full size, forward and rear facing seat which folds into a compact frame, leading the way in full size mini travel systems, with no compromise.

Keep your eyes peeled for more news on Tutti Bambini’s other key product launches at this year’s Kind + Jugend Fair, there is plenty more to come…

Come and enter the world of Ubbi

Enter the world of Ubbi where innovative products are designed and created with parents and children in mind. Under the Ubbi name, you will find unique, quality products that are easy to use, helping to simplify parents’ lives while keeping babies as happy and safe as can be.

The Ubbi muslin blanket buddy is a 2-in-1 convertible stuffed animal that transforms into a blanket, making it into the perfect companion for playtime, naptime, and everything in between. The blanket buddies are a set of two 100% cotton muslin that are soft, breathable, easy to carry, light-weight, comfortable, and multi-functional.

To transform into a stuffed animal: lay the blanket down with the pocket facing up, and turn the pocket and stuff until the creature comes to life. The muslin blanket buddies quickly change from stuffed animal to blanket and back again preventing it from dragging on the floor and collecting dirt, keeping baby safe and parents happy.

Here at Penny Scallan Design, we like to keep things fresh and interesting - so we absolutely cannot wait to debut our new injection range at Kind + Jugend this year! We have some exciting new styles that we are sure you will love, including new bamboo products and backpack styles. In addition, our ever-popular Bento range is now available in Europe.

We’re also about to launch some amazing new prints - Dino Rock and Park Life. Here’s a sneak peek of what they’re about.

Dino Rock
Put your hands together for the Dino Band! Against a dusky desert backdrop, we’ve got Strumosaur on guitar, Drumosaur on drums and DJ Dino, boss of the tunes. There’s also Cactus, normally shy and quiet but when he hears a tune he likes, well... your ears are in for a treat!

Park Life
Meet Petal the Unicorn and Bouncy the Sausage Dog. Petal brings sparkle to the skies. When she blows her magic kisses, the sun shines, birds sing and fresh breezes caress your skin. Bouncy brings sparkle to the ground. Where he goes, flowers bloom, children smile and lemonade stands appear to bring you fresh fruit juice. Together, these best friends bring sunshine and happiness wherever they go!

Hopping to Kind + Jugend with Venice Child's Kangaroo

Showing for the first time at Cologne is the new Venice Child Kangaroo stroller. It’s a favourite of mothers in Hollywood and has many famous parents proudly pushing the most stylish stroller ever made.

Designed in Venice Beach California, it’s the next big thing that going to take the market and is already is available in 9 countries. The Kangaroo has a smooth and versatile chassis design with no screws or welding to join the parts.

Designed with a sleek streamlined frame to prevent damage and avoid the issues that normally occur with welded frames, the Kangaroo allows parents to easily adjust the handle for taller and petite heights, along with an easy seat recline to not disturb baby, reversible seat options and no more slouching and or backaches. The Kangaroo is spun from some of the finest materials and is made with child comfort and safety in mind, as well as the ease of parents.

Carefully crafted with high grade polished aviation aluminium, to prevent corrosion and rusting, the Kangeroo thus has the look of a chrome finish for added style. The wheels have a swivel mechanism enhanced with a shock absorbing technology to ensure smooth and comfortable rides. Venice Child have a 'no killing of animals' policy, as well as a policy for zero testing on animals, believing in using eco friendly and artificial materials rather than harming other life for pleasure.

The Kangaroo has an adjustable telescopic handle, along with a 'two wheel mode' for stairs and beach use. Easily folded, it can be folded with the seat on or off as well as taken apart easily and put into a compact position for smaller cars. The wheels are made with an anti-shock technology, with swivel and non-swivel options, all designed with a streamlined frame to prevent breaking, rattles and squeaks.

The covering fabric is waterproof, antifungal and antibacterial, to prevent mold or mildew, as well as being an anti-UV fabric made with an extra long sunshade zipper system canopy. The fabric is both removable and washable.

Weighing in at only 10kg (23.5 lbs) with the seat, belly bar and canopy on, the seat can recline in two positions with a simple touch (recline to 110 to 180), or have a reversible seat position with both forward and parent facing. The Kangeroo also has a one foot braking system and a five-point adjustable harness.

Whilst the Kangaroo has a wide and comfortably padded seat, there is also a bassinet for a newborn with a soft, padded inlay. The seat is made with a cushy, breathable fabric and the stroller will stand on its own when folded. Easy to maneuver and roll with a huge undercarriage basket that can hold up to 5kg (11 lbs), the Kangaroo comes with all the essentials that most parents desire for a travel system: seat, bassinet, universal carseat adapter, foot muff, mosquito net, rain shield and cup holder.

The stroller has a five-year warranty, whilst the seat, bassinet and accessories have a warranty for two.

Clippasafe showcase latest products for parents on the go

Clippasafe, the experts in child safety, will be showcasing the latest additions to their range and much more at Kind + Jugend this September.

Every parent knows the struggle of battling with shopping bags and a pushchair. Clippasafe’s new Big Bag Clips are carabiner style bag holders which clip on and off and are made from aluminium, so are a sturdier option to traditional plastic bag hooks. Once attached to the stroller handle, the Big Bag Clip can be left there and if kept closed, will not come off or be misplaced. It can also be removed with shopping, to carry it all in the house.

The Seat Back Organiser is a must-have for parents that take their children on car journeys. Great for short commutes and perfect for helping to keep kids occupied on longer trips; the organiser has pouches to keep items like toys and books in, plus an iPad viewing compartment so they can have their very own seat back TV!

The Stroller Cup Holder is perfect for storing a bottle for baby or a can or takeaway cup of coffee for parents while walking with the buggy. Easily attachable and removable, parents can keep their hands free and concentrate on steering their stroller and keeping an eye on their little one.

Roger Cheetham, Managing Director for Clippasafe, says: “We’re responding to a need for not only safety products, but also those aimed at making parents’ lives easier. We’d like our range to be a one-stop shop for child safety and convenience.”

Dr Brown’s® Options™ – the Number One Choice for Healthcare Professionals for relieving colicky symptoms

Leading bottle brand Dr Brown’s is the most recommended anti-colic bottle on the market as recognised by healthcare professionals as part of an Independent Research Study.

Survey results showed that Dr Brown’s Options Bottles were overwhelmingly chosen as the number one recommended solution for colic with 92% of HCP’s saying that they would recommend Dr Brown’s Options for the relief of colicky symptoms*.

Almost half of all babies in the UK develop colic** and Dr Brown’s is famed for its unique vent system which is clinically proven to eliminate the vacuum and air bubbles in the feed, so helping reduce colic and burping. Research showed that 57% of HCP’s acknowledge that the level of technical research and development of Dr Brown’s has had a significant impact on the effectiveness in relieving symptoms of colic.

Dr Brown’s Options bottles are the first convertible bottle. The vent can be removed once baby no longer experiences feeding problems - giving parents the power of choice! Please come see us at Kind + Jugend 2017 in Hall 11.2, Stand D020.

Hearing and sun protection from Sunproof at Kind+Jugend

In 2011, the UK baby products market was devoid of effective hearing protection for babies. There were models available for older children, but none specifically designed for wear by infants.

The aural environment is full of noisy situations that can disturb, frighten or upset a small baby.

The team at Banz, who created BabyBanz 10 years previously, rose to the challenge. Banz Baby Ear Defenders were designed for use by the same age group as the original BabyBanz sunglasses: 0 – 2 years of age.

Banz Baby Ear Defenders offer excellent noise attenuation in a good design that is small, portable, lightweight and adjustable. The cups and headband are padded for comfort.

Banz Baby Ear Defenders are now the trusted brand leader in baby hearing protection. They have even been spotted on young royals.

In 2001, the UK baby products market was devoid of sunglasses designed for wear by babies. There were some “novelty” and “fun” styles available back at that time. These may have looked amusing but certainly did not provide adequate UV protection to a baby’s vulnerable eyes.

Then along came Babybanz sunglasses, a new product designed in Australia from the ground up to offer excellent eye protection for babies, with a moulded polycarbonate frame, proper UV400 category 3 lenses, and a patented neoprene strap for a comfortable fit.

Babybanz are robust, inexpensive, well designed and adjustable. The UK market was ready for them and Babybanz have become the trusted brand leader in infant eye protection. The perfect product came along at the perfect time,demand for this product has never ebbed since.

Sunproof have represented Banz products in the UK since their launch. They are exhibiting at the Kind+Jugend British Pavilion, Stand 44B.

Cuddledry Lifecycle

It's been all go behind the scenes at Cuddledry this year – some really significant, exciting change is underway, and Kind + Jugend will see the first of a planned series of ‘reveals’. Seven new team members have joined, and the multi award-winning Cuddledry bathtime range is expanding significantly.

Kind + Jugend this year will see the introduction of the new ‘the Cuddle by Cuddledry®’ range, which has already been selected by leading UK retailers for 2018, alongside the Original Cuddledry Handsfree baby bath towel range.

Cuddledry is a very established brand in the UK, having become known as the bathtime experts over the last ten years. Cuddledry products now address the full lifecycle of the nursery customer, starting with their founding product, the Original Cuddledry handsfree towel, which sells strongly to prospective parents during pregnancy, immediately post birth, and also to friends and family as an ideal gift. The Original Cuddledry baby bath towel has an innovative design where the parent attaches it to them like an apron, so they can safely scoop baby from the bathwater with both hands free, snuggling them into the supersoft bamboo towelling for immediate warmth, and avoiding getting wet themselves. This design wins Gold and Platinum awards year on year, and has been voted ‘best baby gift’ by users of Mumsnet, the UK’s leading parenting website, for the last nine years.

Cuddledry have now built upon this core range with a full and rapidly expanding set of accessories for baby bathtime, and for bathtimes when travelling with baby, so they are the ‘go to’ brand to fill the bathtime category. They also have a set of super cute ‘character’ towels for toddlers and children up to age 6, with some beautiful new designs ready to launch. Then when the next baby comes along – toddler is snug in their cute towel, and its time for another Cuddledry Original for the little brother or sister!

Ems for Kids are passionate about creating products that allow families to enjoy vibrant, exciting lives, without being concerned that the environment around them, be it a concert, or a speedway, could be damaging their child’s ears.

We are extremely proud that our products continue to raise awareness of the importance of hearing protection in children. We take great pride in knowing that many children with Sensory Processing Disorders are now enjoying fireworks, tractors, and speedways for the first time in their life, stress-free.

Ems for Kids products are designed by parents, for parents. Using high-quality materials and colourful eye-catching designs, our earmuffs are perfect for protecting little ears from big noise!

Ems for Kids products are stringently tested to the relevant US and European safety standards, and are certified by the appropriate notifying bodies.

Ems for Kids products are audiologist approved, high quality, and easy to use.

How to stay ahead of your competition by using your IP

The European Nursery Products Confederation (ENPC) has once again organised a pertinent seminar on Intellectual Property at Kind + Jugend this year.

Nursery is one of the most innovative of all sectors and every day a new product idea seems to launch to the market. However, getting your product onto shop shelves before it is copied by a competitor is a major challenge and legal expert Sara Ludlam of 3Volution will explain how to turn clever innovations into commercial success. She will explain the ins and outs of patents, copyright, trademarks and registered designs and how they can make the difference between commercial success or failure.

Sara’s presentation will take place in the Kind + Jugend Trend Forum in Hall 10.1 stand C070 to D069 on Thursday 14th September at 14.00 hrs.

Sara will also be available to answer questions on the Baby Products Association’s stand – Hall 4.1 – B045 in the morning of Thursday 14th September, so feel free to pop along or email SaraLudlam@3volution.co.uk to make a specific appointment at the show.

Unveiling the ARLO® twin/tandem travel system at Kind + Jugend ‘17

The final and much anticipated product unveiling on Tutti Bambini’s stand at the Kind + Jugend 2017 fair, where they will be celebrating 30 years since the birth of the company, is the ARLO® ‘do it all’ travel system.

ARLO® is a compact folding pushchair with everything parents would need from a full size travel system. The forward and reverse facing seat folds in half, yet is one of the biggest seats in its class, designed for baby’s complete comfort. At just under 10kg, it delivers big features yet remains conveniently lightweight. With an optional carry cot and a brand new ByGo ISOfix car seat (as well as being compatible with other leading car seat brands), it really has it all.

The ARLO® travel system is a great single pushchair, but it has been built to grow should you ever need it – compatible with any combination of two seat units, carrycots, or car seats.

So head over to stand B078 in Hall 11.3 at this year’s Kind + Jugend fair, on Thursday, Friday or Saturday of the show from 5pm. There you can view a host of exciting new products and enjoy some bubbly with team Tutti to celebrate their 30th birthday!

Protect your Brand from a fast-growing issue facing SME’s: Counterfeiting

With counterfeit sales accounting for up to 5% of European trade, and toys the third most commonly seized item at European Customs, online brand protection is more important than ever – particularly for the SME with a global footprint.

Thanks to Jet Doran, from online brand protection specialist SnapDragon, brands exhibiting at K+J can pick up some free hints and tips to ensure they are aware of the issue and doing all they can to protect themselves.

Counterfeits cost brands dearly – contributing to lost revenues and damaged reputations but, most importantly, put unsuspecting customers at risk. The free event taking place at Kind + Jugend on Saturday 16th September, at 2.30pm in the Trend Forum is not to be missed.

Jet will be delivering practical tips including the secrets to successful searching, what to do if you find a counterfeit, and how the Customs Authorities can help (for free).

She explained: “Counterfeiters are no longer targeting FMCG and luxury brands, but carefully selecting smaller brands, with wide distribution networks and good PR. And, as online marketplaces have become key distribution channels, online brand enforcement for the nursery sector has never been so crucial. We must keep our customers safe and protect cherished revenue streams.

“While online brand protection is just one part of the jigsaw, it can deliver results, quickly and with very little, if any, cost – significantly hampering the counterfeiters’ activity and protecting brands and customers.”

Europol and the EUIPO’s most recent report into counterfeiting, June 2017, identified, perhaps unsurprisingly, China as the key country of provenance for counterfeit goods, with Hong Kong continuing to act as a transit point for goods originally manufactured in China. Other countries also have specific trading characteristics, however, such as Turkey – which has been linked with Bulgaria and Belgium through trade in counterfeit labels, tags and stickers, all which help to facilitate internal manufacture.

Jet continues: “Counterfeiting is a world-wide problem and not something just brought out by moving manufacturing operations off-shore. However, forewarned is forearmed and the more information nursery brands have at their fingertips the quicker they can protect their customers, revenue streams and brands.”

Jet and her international team at SnapDragon have extensive experience of online brand protection for many nursery and baby brands around the world, many of whom are exhibiting at K+J and are happy to give recommendations. SnapDragon also works very closely with the major ecommerce, auction and social media platforms to develop appropriate anticounterfeit strategies for SMEs, in particular.

The seminar is free and Jet will be available for free advice sessions in both English and French on Friday and Saturday.
