Duukies

Since starting swimming lessons last year our four kids can’t get enough of the water, but getting to the water is not always as easy as they would like. Whether it’s a hot and sandy beach, a rocky lake side or a slippery pool deck, often there are some obstacles to overcome for little swimmers. Dutch designer label Duukies has come up with the perfect way to help little feet find their way into the water:

duukies-beachsocks

Duukies Beach Socks (RRP $34.95) are the hip and comfortable way to keep kids’ feet safe in and around the water. Brand new to Australia these clever nylon/neoprene beach socks are sure to be a huge hit, after all we are blessed with beautiful weather for most of the year and you will have a hard time finding an Aussie kid who doesn’t love the water!

Duukies Beach Socks LieveDuukies are comfortable to wear, protect against the sun, hot sand and sharp rocks, are slip-resistant, easy to put on and they won’t be in your way when swimming (unlike the traditional stiff and uncomfortable water shoes). There are currently six colourful designs to choose from to suit both boys and girls with sizes ranging from a tiny 4 up to a big 4. Not only do Duukies match up with your favourite swimmers, just like your cossie they dry in a flash too.

SnoozeShade

 Baby, Out & About  Comments Off on SnoozeShade

Just like many other families we thought Australia Day was a perfect day to venture out and explore this beautiful country a little more. Now that the twins are a bit older going out has become a lot easier, they can walk by themselves and with a bit of luck they can go without a day sleep. The baby can walk by herself too, in fact she’d love to walk everywhere if she could, but she definitely still needs her sleep during the day. Unlike the twins who only slept in their own cots the baby quite enjoys a little nap in the pram, nice and cosy under her SnoozeShade.

SnoozeShade was invented by mum Cara, who loved going out with her little girl but the older she got the harder it was to get her to sleep in the pram. Cara realised that there was a big need for a product that would allow babies and toddlers to take a quiet, comfortable, peaceful snooze in the pram without being disturbed by light, noise, activity around and even curious passersby.

After a year of brainstorming, researching and trying SnoozeShade was born, a blackout blind for strollers and prams. For me,  someone who used to leave the house with pegs and a gigantic muslin cloth (which never stayed put), this is a gift from heaven. The SnoozeShade has been designed to fit different pram sizes and shapes and to offer complete coverage. The breathable SnoozeShade blocks out 94% of light and 98% of UVA/UVB rays ensuring a safe and silent rest for baby.

The SnoozeShade is fitted with many clever features to help baby get a restful sleep and mum feel confident about baby’s safety and protection. My favourite selling points are the fast installation (it takes less than a minute for me to put up the SnoozeShade Plus) and the ‘Sneak-a-Peek’ zip for peace of mind. I also love how the look-out panel lets baby look out but sun doesn’t come in, perfect for the bright summer days.

I am currently using the SnoozeShade Plus on my phil&teds Vibe 2 but there are several other SnoozeShade designs to choose from. Thanks to the classic black colour the SnoozeShade suits every pram and doesn’t go out of fashion. The clever design features velcro straps for an ideal fit for your pram, on the website you’ll find an extensive list of prams that have been tested with the SnoozeShade. Prices start at $34.95 and when ordered online delivery within Australia is FREE.
