Between a journey to a tradeshow in Madrid and trip to Nice fortunately I found time to visit the Pink & Blue Kids Trade Fair. For this edition the exhibition organisers worked together with the Trade Mart Utrecht. The fair was completely styled in New York spheres with funny attributes, free finger food and smoothies and in the middle a real oldies pram catwalk. Unfortunately I haven’t seen much real ‘babyhardware’, but for those who are looking for nice presents and original products to style the nursery this fair was definitely worth a visit!
I would like to put a couple of new brands in the spotlight: Wollie Wolk showed surprising and very hip footmuffs made of hip design fabrics but lined with real wool because this kind of fabric is natural, moisturizing and breathable. You can choose from models with trendy zebra fabric, tough denim, tough Tartan designs, fine knits or fake furs. According to the founders Ellen Cooper and Madelon Bouwman these are really footmuffs with which you want to be seen. It’s nice to know that all models are produced in a limited edition. I suspect we will hear much more from these ladies!
Dining Kids Amsterdam is known for the development, manufacture and supply of products for the catering, think of coloring pages, crayons in a box, with or without the name of the restaurant. But food and drinks for children should be much more according the two men behind Dining Kids. So Joris and Jorden developed a new children’s crockery full of humor made of real porcelain. Such as the Fishing Bowl with a fishing line, when the bowl is empty children will discover what’s on the line! Or have a look at the maze on the pizza plate!
Also special in the area of food and drinks is the sustainable Pure Kids tableware made of bamboo! Cheerful, colorful and child friendly. It cannot be put in the microwave however but the washing machine is no problem.
Finally I spotted a new original label: Zoocchini! The collection consists of funny bathcapes with animal heads as hood and dangerous claws! Available in baby and children’s size and have a close look at the packaging!
