JUNIOR DESIGN AWARDS 2020 GOLD WINNER: Best Baby and Toddlers Toiletries Collection
WHO: Little B by Bramley
WHAT: A gentle, sustainably made toiletries range for babies and children, made from natural ingredients.
WHY: The judges’ response to this brand was unanimous: WONDERFUL. From the beautiful, whimsical hand-drawn illustrations on the packaging to the divine smells, biodegradable, gentle formulations and eco responsible packaging, the immense amount of thought and care that has gone into this brand was obvious. The delicate essential oil fragrances had our panel in raptures and the beautifully packaged gift set of mini products housed in the sweetest cardboard suitcase was a huge hit. An even bigger hit was the company’s commitment to thinking about the future of the planet for our children – biodegradable formulations, recyclable packaging and 5 Litre Starter Packs for refilling and 1 Litre bottles for larger families pushed this brand to the top of the leaderboard.

JUNIOR DESIGN AWARDS 2020 SILVER WINNER: Best Baby and Toddlers Toiletries Collection
WHO: Kokoso Baby
WHAT: An eco-conscious organic skincare brand formulated with raw virgin organic coconut oil suitable for newborn, sensitive and eczema-prone skin.
WHY: Our judges were incredibly impressed with this comprehensive collection of coconut oil based products that cover every junior skincare need. The company was started by a mother on the hunt for baby products that would be suitable for her own baby’s sensitive skin needs and the brand continues to cater for anyone looking for especially gentle and nurturing skincare. The simple, stylish graphic packaging was very popular with the panel as was the option for fragranced and fragrance-free options within the range. Several of our judges were already familiar with the range and asked if they could take samples home – which always speaks volumes! Extra points were awarded for the brand’s ongoing search for more eco-friendly packaging solutions, including cardboard packaging and bottles made from 30-100% post-consumer recycled materials which are recyclable too. Bravo!
JUNIOR DESIGN AWARDS 2020 BRONZE WINNER: Best Baby and Toddlers Toiletries Collection
WHAT: A 9 strong animal character range of rechargeable electric toothbrushes featuring timers and flashing lights to maintain interest and a sucker bottom to keep the toothbrush upright between uses.
WHY: This toothbrush collection scored highly for sheer cuteness and fun. We all need a little bit of brightness and cheer at the moment and these adorable brushes had everyone smiling! Cuteness apart, the more serious topic of maintaining good dental health without a regular battle at the basin was the major reason that these brushes were so popular with our judges. That nearly 1 in 4 children (23%) have a chance of having decayed teeth on their 5th birthday and that tooth decay remains the number one reason for childhood hospital admissions were sobering stats presented by the brand.
