Baby and Infant Articles: What’s hot in 2021

Header_Baby and Infant Articles: What’s hot in 2021

In glass, but impact resistant

Wide Neck Glass Feeding Bottle  from Happy Care
The colour-changing coating of the Wide Neck Glass Feeding Bottle 120 ml by Happy Care indicates a too hot liquid inside. 

Representative of a new trend, the Happy Care smart Wide Neck Glass Feeding Bottle 120 ml for newborns is made of high quality borosilicate glass covered with a layer of silicone. Such a solution makes the bottle impact resistant while granting the durable cleanness of glass. Furthermore, should the bottle fall to the ground there will be no dangerous splinters scattered around. The bottle, featuring light weight and ergonomic shape, is smart since the coating will indicate that the temperature of the liquid is too high by changing its cover to a white colour.

A tiny bear that really soothes

Béké-Bobo therapeutic bears
Béké-Bobo therapeutic bears quickly relieve ear infections, migraines, teething, colic and stomach aches. 

Made from a mixture of cereals that release moisture when heated or cooled, the Béké Bobo therapeutic bears relieve ear infections, migraines, teething, colic and stomach aches. Their soothing humidity has an anti-inflammatory effect and promotes relaxation. The tiny bears are also recommended for breastfeeding women. When heated and applied on the breast, they provide warmth and humidity which helps to unclog milk ducts, reduces pain, and promotes a better grip of the nipple for baby. Medical device recognized by Health Canada and the European Union. (Béké Bobo, Canada)

A protected area for play

Antibacterial Puzzle Mat by Sunta Manufacturing
Rinsing the Antibacterial Puzzle Mat with pure water releases the silver ion's antibacterial function. 

Because of the global spread of the COVID-19, the importance of personal hygiene has come to the forefront. Therefore, Sunta Manufacturing is introducing an Antibacterial Puzzle Mat. It’s a new line of play mats which make use of the Ag+ surface with silver ions, a Japanese anti-microbial technology which eliminates 99% of germs and bacteria within 24 hours and guarantees continuous protection: addressed to infants learning to crawl and toddlers starting to walk, they are non-toxic and waterproof, contain no small parts and do not smell. The activation of the antibacterial activity simply requires the user to rinse the mat with clean water in order to release the silver ions in the surface. (Sunta Manufacturing SDN BHD, Malaysia)

Bounce and ride!

Air Hopper by Micro
The Air Hopper by Micro combines the well-known hopper ball concept with the fun of riding on wheels. 

Combining the well-known hopper ball concept with the fun of riding on wheels, the Micro Air Hopper consists of two components – an inflatable main body and a chassis with 360-degree pirouetting polyurethane wheels that are exceptionally quiet and leave no marks.
