Swede love

Brrr. Few of us love the cold weather but at least it’s a good excuse to start scouting for baby’s winter wardrobe. The trick to dressing little ones on the chilly front is layering and you’ll be pressed to find a funkier mix of winter separates than Polarn O. Pyret’s range. Available at several UK outlets, Polarn O. Pyret create trendy, distinctive and high quality clothes for mums, newborns and kids including an eco-friendly collection. Give your child a little Swedish swagger with this ethnic-style patterned jacket made from 100 percent cotton and available in red, dark brown or navy. The jacket comes with removable hood and can be worn with matching skirt or trousers. Visit the Polarn O. Pyret site for a list of Europe-wide stockists and to check out more great designs.

Little Squirts

So you’ve decorated your nursery in blue, picked out your favourite boy’s names and imagined holding your male progeny in your arms. But unless you’ve parented sons before nothing prepares you for the moment when, as you undo his nappy, your little darling cheerfully squirts pee-pee in your eye. If you don’t feel cut out for this type of target practice, help is at hand in the form of Wee Blocks.

This clever cup-like device is covered in soft 2-ply cotton fabric and contains an absorbent sponge underneath. You simply pop the Wee Block on baby boy at changing time and spare yourself an unwanted shower. Wee Blocks are machine washable and come in fun colours with cheeky slogans like Lil Squirt, Whiz Kid and Wee Wee Man. Available online at Pokkadots.

Wild Thing

We’re in love with this hand-painted Lion Push-Up from Orange Tree Toys that was ostensibly bought for Mr. Cheeks but now has pride of place on mama’s desk.

What’s so cool about this knobbly-kneed wild cat, you wonder? Just press the secret button beneath the lion’s podium and Shaggy (as I call him) will skank to reggae, grind to R&B, rave to dance music or even bop to hip-hop beats. Your thumb or fingers set the pace but, thanks to its simple yet ingenious design, this lion has moves all his own. Cheap and cheerful fun at Orange Tree Toys, shopping code YX573.

Talk of the T's

Eco-friendly, innovative and intelligent, Blirt Shirts are set to be a hit with greenies, style hounds and word nerds alike. The concept of Blirt Shirt is to introduce youngsters to the fleximagical, colourtastic playground that is the English language by coupling popular turns of phrase (dating back as far as 2,200 years!) with quirky designs on a range of long and short-sleeved t-shirts made from 100% organic cotton.

You'll find phrases like 'a good egg', 'a real ham' or a 'bull in a china shop' - all carefully selected to suit every variety of little angel/monster. Blirt Shirts are unisex, available in a selection of colours and sizes, and each one arrives with a booklet wittily explaining the origin of the term of speech. The shirts are super soft, Fair Trade guaranteed and Hype Baby especially digs the brown paper bag packaging. Smart, in every sense of the word. Check out the Blirt Shirt site and watch the images come to life.
