WINNER OF BEST TRAVEL PRODUCT (For Parents) : GOLD

WHO: DockATot

WHAT: Deluxe + Cabana Kit

WHY: This stylish retractable UV-protected shade (50+ SPF) fits snugly onto the Deluxe+ Pod to help shelter babies from the sun, brightly lit areas and other elements whilst outside. The judges agreed this was a essential baby product for modern families and the colour palette was gorgeous- as they mix and match with the pods. Bonus point for being easy to sponge clean and quick drying.

Great idea for travelling families.

Lovely idea and design and very practical! I would definitely buy one.

The sleek design of these shades mean they take up minimal room in your luggage - as must when travelling with kids - which makes them a packing must have.

WINNER OF BEST TRAVEL PRODUCT (For Parents): JOINT SILVER

WHO: BeSafe

WHAT: iZi Flex Fix i-size car seat

WHY: The judges were impressed that this car seat was one of the safest, space saving booster seats that will grow with your child. The sleek design, breathable peak mesh cover, easy to install instructions and the fact that you can fit up to three people in one row, giving more space in the back seat. They also noted the foldable lap belt guider which  helps with an optimal positioning of the lap belt to offer increased comfort. Overall, a brilliant modern car seat.

Using its experience from the BeSafe pregnancy belt to inspire the development of the kids belts means these seats offer maximum comfort and safely. The lockable shoulder belt guiders means the belt is always at the right height for the child - which is a godsend.
Bonita Turner, Editor of Junior
Such a great concept - I love that it grows with the child so saves buying multiple seats. Very innovative and sustainable!

WINNER OF BEST TRAVEL PRODUCT (For Parents): JOINT SILVER

WHO: Bundle Beds

WHAT: The Tot-2-Ten Travel Bed

WHY: Bundle Beds have won many a Junior Design Award over the years so its great its newest edition it just as fabulous as the Classic Bundle Bed! Made with the same quality materials, the genius self-inflating mattress, cosy duvet and comfy pillow (with an integrated waterproof sheet) but, now for toddlers up to tweens. Which makes it ideal for when you come to that in-between stage when your toddler is too big for a travel cot but not quite ready for a standard bed. The add-on of the inflatable safety bumpers add extra protection for little ones. This is a staycation, sleepover and festival essential.

Love the textiles and it’s a great concept for travelling families.
Zoey Goto, Travel Journalist and Junior Contributor
Over the years we have used our own Bundle Bed for camping, sleepovers and one time when we stayed on a wooden ship in London. So I can vouch for their comfort - for both kids and adults - so its great there is a bigger version available meaning it will last even longer.

WINNER OF BEST TRAVEL PRODUCT (For Parents): BRONZE

WHO: Kiddiwhizz

WHAT: The Whizzer – a unisex handheld toilet for kids aged up to 8 years

WHY: If there was one product that caused much discussion it was the Whizzer. The Whizzer is the world’s first patented unisex handheld toilet for kids. And, once the judges had figured it out  they were raving about it! The high-grade silicone ‘portable loo’ has been designed by a UK mum for long car journeys, theme park queues, beach days, picnics in the park or any time you’ve heard  “I need the toilet!” at the most inconvenient time (that will be a lot then!). The compact, leakproof (even when full) and ergonomic design all got the judges votes.

What a fabulous concept! As a parent of daughters, I love that this is unisex. Great job.
