Started by two mamas who love traveling the world with their kiddos, Kid on The Move is rapidly expanding their range of great products that make adventuring easier, safer and more convenient. Their newest addition is the much-buzzed-about 1st Class Kid Travel Pillow, which allows children to lie down flat to sleep even in economy airplane seats. It’s a total game-changer, mama! We’re also fans of their Ridesafer Travel Vests, since anything that doesn’t involve schlepping big car seats around for travel in taxis and school buses gets a thumbs up in our books.
These “cakes” are amazing! Folding and rolling baby clothes into bouquets, ‘cakes’ and more, Dotty Bee offers gifts in different colours, each including anything from baby accessories to a full outfit for your bubs! All clothing is made of 100% cotton, and sized 3-6 months so you have ample time to display the ingenious creation before dressing your little one. If you’re planning to send a bouquet or baby clothes cake to a friend or family member, there’s even a tag to add a message for that perfect personal touch.

Activities may include eating with your bare hands, tropical fruit jam making, learning a traditional dance and a whole lot more. So shiok!
Specially for tiny tykes aged 2 to 6, Kidmando holds fun outdoor exercise and game sessions to help little ones enjoy fresh air and meet new friends while developing their fundamental movement skills. Most of the sessions are held at East Coast, but they’ve recently just started holding them at Botanic Gardens after much request from mamas who live more central. Check out their Facebook page to get a taste of what these kiddos get up to, mama!
Mama of two and Scribolo founder Nathalie came up with this giant colouring poster when she realised how much her children loved to draw and colour but were bound by the size of their paper. The result was this 150 x 60cm poster with all of Singapore’s landmarks and beautiful buildings ink-drawn by local Singaporean artist Ziyue Chen. It can be rolled out over a desk or table, attached to the wall or laid flat on the ground, for several children or family members to colour together. Simply roll it back up into its box when it’s time to clear some space!
Find it: Available online and in several partner stores including Gallery & Co., Supermama, Naiise, Cuckoo, Luca & Vic, The Farm Store, Small and the Singapore Botanical Gardens.
