Sneak a peek at the new looks and styles to hit the shops this year
Harrogate Nursery Fair is known for showcasing the latest baby products on the market.
And this year did not disappoint; there were innovate products all over the place – extra lightweight buggies and stylish thermometers were just a few things that caught our eye.
So of course, we’ve compiled a complete list of the best trends and newest products on show at Harrogate. Let us know what you think of them.
Meet new kid on the block Mee-Go, a British parenting brand that makes travel systems, highchairs and furniture.
It also makes a very dainty lightweight buggy, the Feather. Weighing a tiny 4.5kg it has a light aluminium frame (here’s the sciencey bit), it’s constructed using a honeycombed technique.
It’s the same method used in the aerospace industry, it provides maximum strength (particularly in tension) but weighs very little.
The forward-facing pushchair also has an adjustable handle, one hand-fold system and basket.
Pricewise, it’s £125 all in, so perfect for parents on a budget.
There are plenty of bath thermometers on the market, but none that look quite like the Shnuggle Pebbly. It’s inspired by nature and looks like a smooth, grey pebble.
It’s easy-to-read, heart-shaped light display glows red if the bath water is too hot and blue if it’s too cold. When it’s the perfect temperature it glows white.
We’re not the only ones who like the clever bath thermometer; it was a big winner in the innovation category at the Harrogate Nursery Show.
Buggies on your back
Pushchairs are getting more portable by the minute and the biggest trend this year by far is the easy-to-carry buggy.
The OmniO Rider, Ruk Bug and ABC TakeOff all transform from strollers into backpacks.

It’s a controversial subject, we know! Every other day there are new dos and don’ts of how to look after your feminine area after you’ve given birth.
Some healthcare professionals recommend that you shower after using the toilet, which may not always be practical. That’s where the Femette comes in. It’s a portable external valve that sprays a controlled, consistent water flow to soothe and cleanse.
Co-sleeping just got more versatile with this Halo Bassinest.
It’s a stand-alone bassinet that is connected to an extendable arm, which also swivels 360 degrees, so moving your baby in any direction couldn’t be easier.
One side of the co-sleeper lowers – ideal for mums who can’t bend over – and the premium version comes with a vibration feature, nightlight and also plays music.
