WHO: Bloom and Blossom Bath, Book & Bedtime – The Very Hungry Caterpillar
WHAT: A toiletries range for babies featuring Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Dermatologist and paediatrician approved, safe for sensitive skin and suitable from newborn – 2 years, this is the the first rung on the ladder for Bloom and Blossom fans who want to get baby into the Bath, Book & Bedtime routine.
WHY: The first exclamations of excitement were all about that iconic caterpillar (who incidentally celebrates his 50th anniversary this year!). Our judges loved the fact that Bloom and Blossom have found a new and much loved book character to appeal directly to babies and toddlers – who doesn’t remember loving the greedy adventure of TVHC when they were wee? The second exclamations of excitement were all about the gorgeous, subtle and oh-so-addictive smell of the products. Our judges commented:

WHY: Our judges loved everything about this set of oils for babies and were extremely impressed with the thought, care, knowledge and eye for design that has come together to make this a fantastic gift and some might say essential purchase for a baby.
