At least a couple of times a year, Kerry and I go to trade shows – otherwise known as A Day Out – to look at new and exciting happenings in the wonderful world of children’s sleepwear. This usually consists of glee at the free hot beverage on arrival, saying hello to our suppliers and rummaging through their beautiful displays for forward stock investment, and finding out about new products (lunch, snacks and post-show wine also feature heavily but I digress).
Last month at Bubble London, we drew inspiration from many new exhibitors and snapped up fantastic sleepwear (more on this very soon) and saw some cutting-edge creations. We met Tom Homfray from CozyGlo who has a unique nightlight which has many features we’d looked for when our children were very little but couldn’t find. We are looking to stock these in the future but in the meantime, here is Katherine and Tom’s story…
After having their daughter, Grace, in January 2014, Katherine and Tom experienced many broken nights and soon realised that a nightlight is an essential companion to nocturnal parenting. During this time, they were disappointed by the lack of quality children’s nightlights – they wanted more from a nightlight to better tend to the needs of their baby and make their lives easier. So they set about designing their own, and CozyGlo was born!
The initial range introduces three cute characters: Colonel Comfort,
Papa Penguin and Beatrice the Rescue Dog. Nights can be a difficult
and scary time for young children, and their bedtime buddies can give
children the reassurance they need.
But it’s not just about looking good – the lights have also been
designed to suit the needs of pars. They emit a calm, soothing
glow, and have a range of functions (dimmer, clock/stopwatch,
thermometer and sleep trainer) to give parent and baby as much rest
and peace of mind as possible.
Please support Katherine and Tom and help to bring these adorable
characters to life by pre-ordering a light which are currently on
offer at special introductory prices: click here for further information. It
is here that they are raising the funds needed to produce the lights
via the crowdfunding platform, BORN.
