JUNIOR DESIGN AWARDS WINNERS FOR BEST CHILDREN'S FASHION ACCESSORIES BRAND: GOLD
WHAT: PACHEE Woven Iron-On Reward Patches
WHY: This new brand to the JDA’s caused a huge stir on our judging days and the panel really connected with both the aesthetic and the message behind these beautifully crafted patches. Designed to support children’s wellbeing by instilling a sense of pride in their achievements and differences, these patches demonstrate how positive affirmation paired with great design can really brighten up a child’s world in every sense. With patches that include topics of diversity, inclusion and resilience, there is a message for everyone and the panel also loved the fact that patching clothes with these badges gives children a real handle on sustainability. A unanimous gold.
Love everything about this brand/ product. Really innovative. You need to get these into schools for their awards ceremonies. The clips are super cool too. Love the colour ways and packaging and quality. Top marks.
The coolest brand and product. They've made patches their own. Unique, fun, inclusive. Love it.
Cool & clever way to accessorise.
Love, love these!! Perfect little mood booster for kids and the designs are beautiful. Much nicer than stickers and love the message to children.
Incredibly creative, such a clever idea.
Love everything from ethos to product. Inclusivity message is great and I love the idea that kids are taught to patch up their clothes. Love the collectable element - can build up patches over the years. Great gifts too. Like they can be ironed or stitched on. Fun, thoughtful and inspiring.
I really love this brand. Great for updating and adding to clothes that can be handed down to siblings giving them a personal touch to the child. Well done.

WHAT: STYCH Accessories collection - curated gift boxes of accessories for children
WHY: “Fun”, “exciting”, “great quality” and “a rushed parent’s godsend” were just some of the comments we heard while our judges perused Stych’s stacked boxes of curated accessories and goodies. While the name of this brand, an acronym of Smile Til Your Cheeks Hurt always works its magic on us, the contents of their stylish drawer style boxes definitely lives up to expectation. The judges loved the co-ordinated assortment of goodies that are bound to make little faces light up and were excited by the addition dress-up tails, very stylish pointelle pyjamas and the option of choosing building your own box of treats.
The best gift option when you need a stylish present idea in a hurry or you want to surprise a little one with something special in the post.
Love the colour pallet and build a box idea. The designs are amazing, it's all cute but with a funky feel so it's not too princessy and can be gender neutral.
SO much fun. My kids would love all of this!”
Love the concept and so much gorgeousness in each box.
Really fun gifting idea. My five year-old self would adore this! Sweet designs and everything looks beautifully made. Love the build your own box idea. Would like to see a few more gender neutral pieces.

WHO: The Little Sock Company
WHAT: The Little Sock Company Non-slip Stay-on Socks
WHY: “Where on earth do all the socks go?”, is a question that the Little Sock Company has made redundant. Their specially designed socks feature a special weave that hugs the foot and refuses to fall off meaning that one socked babies can be a thing of the past! Add to this the non-slip design on the bottom of these socks and our panel agreed you pretty much have the perfect baby and toddler sock! The judges felt the designs were clean and stylish, and that the presentation box made this a great gifting idea from parents in the know to novice sock wearers.
