Splash About, which designs and develops some of the most advanced swimwear for babies and young children on the global market, won two gold accolades at the prestigious Mother&Baby 2020 awards which were announced in London this week.
For the third consecutive year, the brand’s flagship swim-school approved reusable swim nappy, the Happy Nappy, won gold for Best Swimming Product and Splash About’s unique new UV Sun and Sea Wetsuit secured gold in the competitive Best Travel Product under £30 category.
“The Mother&Baby awards are a big deal for us, because our products are thoroughly tested and judged by our harshest critics – parents.” Commented Bernadette Spofforth Managing Director of Splash About International.
Bernadette continued, “Our products have really been put through their paces, tested on all aspects from effectiveness and value for money, to design and usefulness, to simply making life easier. We are immensely proud to take the top spot in two broad and hotly contested categories – knowing that parents trust our products and give them their seal of approval is a real testament to our brand and its values.”
Over 150,000 UK babies swim each week in a Happy Nappy, it’s insisted upon by over 90 per cent of UK swim schools and considered best practice by British Standards (BSi) guidelines for baby swimming. With its unique ergonomic shape, flexible but fitted gusset and specialist pressure fabric ribbing at the waist and legs, this swim nappy offers the best protection on the market against faecal leaks in the pool.
The new UV Sun & Sea Wetsuit is a unique combination of a supple neoprene body and soft flexible Nylon Lycra arm and side panels. It provides UPF50+ sun protection but also maintains core body warmth for longer play in or out of the water. It’s ideal for a staycation or chilly pools or seas and windy beaches.
Now in their 26th year, the Mother&Baby Awards are the most established parenting awards. According to Sally Saunders, editor of Mother& Baby magazine, the standard of entries for the 2020 awards has been ‘exceptional and to be simply shortlisted means companies are at the top of their game’. The magazine states that 61% of parents rely on the awards to help them choose the right product and 70% have bought a product as a result of the awards.
The Happy Nappy retails for £10.99 and is available direct from Splash About (splashabout.com) and Amazon.co.uk. It also retails in 200 Boots stores and in over 300 Sainsbury’s nationwide. The new UV Sun & Sea Wetsuit has an RRP of £24.99 and is available from www.splashabout.com
