Apphia Michael



Hung from a grand tripod–style floor-standing beech frame or suspended from the ceiling with just one simple hook, this cradle will sway gently as baby moves, comforting and soothing him as it mimics what he would have felt in the womb.

Apphia Michael



An example of sleek minimalist Danish design at its finest, the Matty changing mat has a clever hygienic waterproof surface that is easy to clean and yet crucially soft to touch, making tearful nappy changes a thing of the past.

Little Lulubel

A simple geometric shape covered in shiny eye-catching silver foil – what’s not to love? Hang it by baby’s crib for visual stimulation, promoting brain development and hopefully earning you a few more minutes in bed.
