It’s official…BUBABLOON® has launched!
Today we’ve finally taken the wraps off our project and unveiled BUBABLOON® to the world! We are so proud to bring this brilliant product to the UK and to share it all with you.
So what is BUBABLOON®? In a nutshell, it’s a revolutionary product that transforms a normal 12 inch balloon into a durable, unbreakable, reusable toy for children from four months to four years (and beyond) that is fun simple and most of all safe!
It is a multi-sensory fabric balloon cover that keeps the light, floaty, bouncy effect of a balloon but helps protect children from popping the balloon and reduces the threat of choking.
Our journey started a little over a year ago, when our director, Elena was inspired by a toy she had received as a gift for her daughter from a friend in Australia.
Keen to give a similar gift to her new mummy friends, but failing to find anything of its quality in the UK, she set about developing the idea and brought friend Lorna on board to help turn the concept into a reality.
We decided to launch our own designs and range for manufacture in the UK and we are delighted to have been awarded the ‘Made in Britain’ marque.
We have created a host of bright, bold and whimsical colours and designs, ranging from campervans to pirates and animals to inspirations from nature, all made from 100 per cent poplin cotton, so your BUBABLOON® can reflect the personality of your little VIP.
As parents ourselves we know how beneficial it is to have that ‘emergency toy’ to hand – something that’s simple, fun, machine-washable and can be popped in a handbag, pocket or changing bag.
The emphasis was always to give parents peace of mind when their children were playing with balloons, and that’s exactly what we hope our product will do.
Balloons are such magnets for little ones, but the dangers are quite startling, so it was important for us to create a specially-designed cover that was not only fun but gives parents the confidence that the probability of kids choking, being startled by a balloon bursting or simply reacting to a latex allergy have been dramatically reduced.
The BUBABLOON® is such a simple design but is so effective, it doesn’t use gadgets or computers and encourages kids to use their imagination and build motor skills no matter their age or ability.
We hope you and your families love it as much as we do.
Lorna and Elena.
