The winners of the Innovation Award

The Innovation Awards have been conferred for the last 12 years for unusual and innovative products that are being presented at the trade fair for the first time and will be commercially available in the next season. The Innovation Award winning seal is a respected quality criterion in the industry, and is thus especially coveted by all exhibitors. The following products were able to assert themselves in eight categories:

„World of Kids Care“ – The uniquely shaped baby bottle nanobébé Feeding Bottle of the company of the same name warms mother’s milk three times faster than any other baby bottle, while in the process retaining all of the nutrients important for the newborn.

„World of Kids Furniture“ – The Familings Rocking Baby Mattress of the Finnish manufacturer Familing OY is a mattress that gently rocks the child to sleep with a special upward and downward movement.

„World of Kids Safety at Home“ – The digital product series Smart Nursery of the company Motorola Baby Binatone Communications Europe BVBA from Belgium offers the networking of many devices: from the camera through the scale to the air humidifier and the music box.

„World of Textiles“ – The Insect Shield Grobag of the British manufacturer gro-group international ltd, trading as The Gro Company, provides optimal protection against insects on the basis of specially developed materials as a sleeping bag.

„World of Toys“ – The cuddly Whisbear® of the Polish company Whisbear Sp. zo.o possesses an integrated loudspeaker that simulates a humming tone similar to that perceived by babies in the womb.

„World of Moving Kids“ – The easily collapsible Omnio pram from the British manufacturer Omnio Innovation Makers Ltd. also scores points with the innovative design of the front wheels, which simplify steering on rough terrain.

„World of Moving Kids & Travelling Kids Accessories“ – The BedBox® of the Norwegian manufacturer JETKIDS LTD is a suitcase for children aged 0 to 7, on which they can be transported sitting. It can also become an airplane bed with only a few actions.

„World of Travelling Kids“ – The children’s car seat AxissFix Air of the Dutch company Dorel Juvenile (Maxi-Cosi/BébéConfort), with its integrated airbags, offers comprehensive protection for the child, is i-Size-compatible and can be rotated by 360 degrees.


The KIDS DESIGN AWARD 2016 goes to: Inna Shimelmits!

The PET chair from Inna Shimelmits convinced the jury: the especially flexible chair promotes the motor skills of the child and stimulates creativity at the same time, meaning that PET is both an item of furniture and a toy.

The KIDS DESIGN AWARD promotes product concepts and studies of young designers that are not yet commercially available. Ideas, designs, concepts and prototypes of exceptional quality are distinguished. In addition to the prospect of winning the award, Kind + Jugend also offers young talents a unique platform: all nominated products will be presented in a special exhibition for the entire duration of the trade fair. In this context, the nominated designer also have the chance at a product sponsorship with selected representatives from the industry.
