Kind + Jugend 2015 opens its doors: A trophy rain at the beginning

There was every reason to be happy this morning at 10 am: the Kind + Jugend 2015 finally opens its doors! Proverbially, the best comes always in the end but the awarding of the Innovation Award and the Kids Design Award took place as two real highlights right at the beginning of the trade fair – and this to the nominees‘ pleasure who obviously were very excited. At the award ceremony of the popular trophies outstanding products and prototypes for babies and toddlers have been awarded.

Winners of the Innovation Award


Winner of the KIDS DESIGN AWARD: Annika Marie Buchberger

How diverse the baby and toddler outfitting sector is and how many up-and-coming designers bursting with creativity there are could have clearly been noted during the award ceremony. In all together eight categories a jury of international experts chose the winner of the Innovation Award 2015 for especially outstanding product development. In a total 252 up-and-coming-designers from 40 countries applied in an outstanding success for the Kids Design Award 2015 with their prototypes. The expert jury nominated ten prototypes in advance. Annika Marie Buchberger joyfully could hold the trophy of this year’s Kids Design Award in her hands this morning. Moreover she has the chance of an exclusive cooperation with a partner from industry. Every nominated up-and-coming designer’s prototype is shown in a special area at the Kind + Jugend, thus there is still the chance for a cooperation with a product sponsor for each of them – it’s worth to have a look!

Huge congratulations to the winners!

Below you can find an overview of the winning products that demarcated by particular ideas and functionality, creative design and exceptional technologies of other submissions, and the winners and all nominees for the Kids Design Award:

Kind + Jugend Innovation Award 2015

Category ‘World of Baby Safety at Home‘: Safety barrier Luna Gate (Munchkin, USA)

Category ‘World of baby Textiles‘: Sun protection clothing UV Ignite (Miyali, The Netherlands)
The colour of the clothing changes when exposed to dangerous UV radiation, even on cloudy days, and warns parents in time.

The combination of walker toy and puzzle promotes the motor skills of the child.

Category ‘World of Baby Moving‘: 3-wheel jogging buggy Marathon (Bumprider, Sweden)

Category ‘World of Baby Moving & Baby Travelling Accessories‘: light quilted jacket for two (Mamalila, Germany)
The jacket developed according to the Mamalila concept already offers optimal wearing comfort during pregnancy. The carrying system integrated into the jacket enables excursions à deux after the birth, even in the winter months, because the jacket not only effectively protects against cold; it ensures good heat exchange for mother and child.

  1. […] The furniture series “Grown up” by the designer Annika Marie Buchberger, does justice to the parental demands for “continuity at home”. The individual pieces of furniture convince with their simple design and can be used in many ways. They don’t have to be exchanged after the first three years of the baby’s life, they are simply extended or adjusted: The three basic elements, a chest of drawers, a wardrobe and a table can partly be fitted on top of each other so that the height can be adjusted individually to suit the size of the child.
