JUNIOR DESIGN AWARDS WINNERS OF BEST TRAVEL PRODUCT (FOR PARENTS): GOLD
WHAT: Alyssa Stroller Bag
WHY: This incredibly useful, compact and chic stroller bag gave our judges serious bag lust and there was a lot of trying on involved in the judging process. Made from responsibly sourced leather and durable nylon, it has a cool sports luxe feel and features all kinds of thoughtful details to make life on-the-go with a baby as easy as possible. The wide main opening for easy rummaging, the external zipped pocket for valuables and the built-in insulated sleeve for keeping bottles upright were all commented on, and many people loved the bag so much, they forgot it was designed to hook onto your buggy handles with ease.
I absolutely love this stylish bag, which shows that you don’t have to lug around masses of equipment to have a day out with your baby or toddler. I have to confess I have been trying it out as an everyday handbag and I love it!
Nice design and at a decent price point.
I feel like this is probably the bag all second time mums wish they’d bought the first time round! Perfect for anyone who wants to travel light knowing they have all the essentials covered.

WHO: Kura Organics
WHAT: Organic baby wrap
WHY: SO COSY was the response to this snuggly organic baby wrap that is specially adapted to be safely used in car seats and pushchairs. Made from 100% GOTS certified organic cotton this travel snuggler has a clever opening in the back, meaning you can make sure it goes all the way around your baby without interrupting the straps. The judges also liked the easy-to-use popper fastenings that prevent babies from kicking the wrap open in the middle of a journey, when you don’t have the hands to help.
A really lovely wrap that keeps babies warm and cosy in buggies and car seats without the worry that it will fall off or get kicked off.
This is so snug! Very sweet design.
A brilliant alternative to a blanket, that makes life so much easier on the go!

JUNIOR DESIGN AWARDS WINNERS OF BEST TRAVEL PRODUCT (FOR PARENTS): BRONZE
WHAT: Brush Travel Set
WHY: These super compact travel toothbrush sets were really popular with our judges who could see just how useful they would be and how much kids would love using them. The fold down toothbrush, protective container and mini toothpaste will give kids a great sense of ownership, while saving on space and keeping toothbrushes hygienic en-route. Our judges were also pleased to see that you can buy refils for these sets when the brushes or toothpastes need replacing.
I think these are fantastic. Perfect for overnight journeys with little ones when you don’t want to pack a whole wash bag and you need to brush before bed! Also perfectly sized for your in-flight bag or even your office drawer.
Great for popping into rucksacks and handbags for journeys and using with pride at that final destination!
