From the 4th to 31st of January, Cotton On KIDS and Sanrio’s much-loved Mr. Men Little Miss characters will join forces, launching an exclusive apparel and accessories collection that will be available globally in Cotton On KIDS stores and online.

The highly-anticipated range, which caters to babies and children, will boast specially designed Mr. Men Little Miss baby apparel, kids apparel, sleepwear, accessories and stationery.

Customers tall and small will love finding characters that suit their ever-changing mischievous personalities which might be Little Miss Princess one day and Mr. Strong the next.

The collection will also welcome a new member of the Mr. Men Little Miss family, Mr. Superhero, who has been designed exclusively for Cotton On KIDS and will continue his adventures beyond the collaboration in Roger Hargreaves’ Happyland. Mr. Superhero loves to save the day and is always around to help his friends out of tricky situations.

Cotton On KIDS Trend Forecaster Marijke Kingma says the Mr. Men Little Miss and Cotton On KIDS collaboration is a great alignment, with both brands sharing a tradition of being nostalgic, quirky and fun.

“The characters are a fun and positive way for kids to focus on their good qualities when considering which identities resonate with them the best,” said Marijke.

“They can also look forward to heading back to kinder or school with the Mr. Men Little Miss range extending into accessories such as lunchboxes, backpacks, drink bottles and stationery. These items can be easily worked back with mandatory school supplies – adding a pop of colour with a fun pencil case or one of six collectable bag tags.”

The bold, colourful and fun apparel offering includes short-sleeve bubbysuits and bibs for baby, printed tees for young girls and boys, and cosy pyjama sets to snuggle up in.

“The opportunity to collaborate with Mr Men Little Miss has allowed us to offer a much-loved nostalgic product with our famous Cotton On KIDS twist to deliver an age-appropriate and exciting collection for kids and parents,” she said.

Cotton On KIDS’ Mr Men Little Miss collection is now available in stores and online at www.cottononkids.com.au. Prices start at R49 for a Mr. Men Little Miss Knot Messy Hair Brush through to the long-sleeve pyjama set for R299.

Johannesburg, 4 November 2015: The Babyglow Smart Range was awarded three National Finalist placements at the recent MamaMagic Cape Town expo. Although the products have yet to be officially launched in South Africa, distributors were given outstanding initial feedback from both parents and industry players at the expo.

The MamaMagic Product Awards for the Cape Town expo named two Babyglow Smart Range products as National Finalists in three categories. The Babyglow Smart Cooling Mat was a National Finalist in the Nursery category, the Babyglow Smart Suit was a National Finalist in the Baby Essentials category and both products were named National Finalists in the Parent’s Choice Awards. This means that they are up for National Winner which will be announced in January after the finalists from the MamaMagic Joburg expo have been added to the pool at the end of November.

According to the MamaMagic event organisers, the criteria for judging products showcased at the expos are mainly concerned with enhancing the lives of local parents: “Each year MamaMagic, The Baby Expo run the New Product Awards, previously known as Product Innovation to honour various companies and or individuals who source, produce, supply or invent products or services that help parents to be even better heroes in the lives of their children.”

The Babyglow Smart Suit is a baby grow that shows the slightest increase in your baby’s body temperature by changing from its original colour to white. Smart Suit is worn and used daily like a normal cotton sleep suit and helps you visually monitor your baby’s health 24 hours a day as the suit actually changes colour as soon as your baby’s temperature becomes too high.

This colour change transcends all language barriers and lets you know what is happening inside your baby’s body by showing the colour change on the outside. Smart Suit detects a developing fever hours before symptoms are visible to the human eye essentially making it parent’s first emergency service.

The Babyglow Smart Cooling Mat is a revolutionary product that uses a specially formulated gel to naturally cool your baby down during periods of fever and in hot weather conditions. The Smart Cooling Mat provides up to eight hours of cooling and draws out heat and reduces temperature without any power assistance. It’s safe and comfortable for your baby to lie on and does not need to be kept in the fridge like other conventional cooling mats.

Bradley Paulse, Babyglow SA investor said that he was pleased with the awards and with the overall feedback from the public who were exposed to the product for the first time at the expo. “The expo was a fantastic first look for the local market. We sold out of the Smart Cooling Mat on the first day with loads of pre-orders coming in for the product. We also managed to sell a large number of the Smart Suits, with plenty of pre-orders coming in for bigger sizes and winter grows.”

Alongside these sales, parents attending the expo had a lot to say about the product with most reactions ranging from amazement to disbelief that the product has not been previously available in local stores. “From an industry point of view, we had overwhelming interest and positive response from designer boutiques, prominent designer online stores, and designer distribution houses,” says Paulse.

A new diabetes-focussed recipe book by well-known foodie, Heleen Meyer, in partnership with Pharma Dynamics, the Centre for Diabetes and Endocrinology (CDE) and the Heart and Stroke Foundation SA (HSFSA) will be launched in time for National Diabetes Awareness Month this November.
Meyer, who is known for her practical, easy-to-follow recipes in the Cooking from the Heart recipe book series, says the latest edition offers people with diabetes advice on how to live the life they want to through optimal nutrition and will contribute to the overall health and well-being of everyone that chooses to follow this way of eating.
“It aims to inspire, motivate and educate the estimated 3,5 million South Africans living with diabetes, but to also create awareness among the broader public of the risk factors associated with the condition,” says Meyer.
The Cooking from the Heart recipe book series complements Pharma Dynamics’ on-going drive to promote healthy eating among the South African public and forms an integral part of its umbrella wellness campaign, called iChange4Health.

The iChange4Health initiative, which focuses on diet, physical activity, smoking cessation and alcohol use, has been specifically created for healthcare practitioners to help them motivate patients with high risk factors to make healthier lifestyle choices – promoting a preventative strategy over a curative approach.

Mariska van Aswegen, spokesperson of Pharma Dynamics says with cardiovascular disease (CVD) ranking number one on the list of diabetes-related complications, this is a must-have cookbook for anyone who wants to improve his or her heart health, and it’s great for those with either pre-diabetes or full-blown diabetes.

“Managing your diet is the key to good diabetes control. Each of the 25 recipes, that include breakfast, snack, dinner and dessert ideas, are low in saturated fat, refined carbs and salt. It also provides twists on traditional favourites, nutritional and meal planning advice, along with portion control and most importantly, tastes great,” says van Aswegen.

The recipes have been analysed by HSFSA dieticians to provide full nutritional information for every recipe. A healthy plate model and lists of alternatives to help plan a healthy meal complete the edition, giving those affected by diabetes a cookbook that promises eating can continue to be one of life’s great pleasures, as well as the most important part of a treatment plan.

Cooking from the Heart 3 will again be made available at no cost to the public, courtesy of prevention-minded pharmaceutical firm, Pharma Dynamics. Get a copy from your GP or simply go online to download the recipes and cooking tips via www.cookingfromtheheart.co.za. You can also follow the Cooking from the Heart Facebook page for handy tips on how to make healthier lifestyle choices part of your every day.
