Maguari scores hat-trick

Maguari is celebrating after all three of the products it entered into this year’s Junior Design Awards were given the coveted Highly Commended badge

Maguari is celebrating after all three of the products it entered into this year’s Junior Design Awards were given the coveted Highly Commended badge, adding another hat-trick of awards to the company’s already impressive tally.

Covering three highly competitive categories - Best Feeding Product, Best Changing Bag and Most Innovative Parenting Product – these Highly Commended awards once again demonstrate Maguari’s on-going commitment to providing high quality and unique baby products.

Thhis is the second year in a row that Maguari has been awarded a Highly Commended in the Junior Design Awards’ Best Feeding Product category – in 2013 it received the accolade for the Skip Hop Zoo-tensils, and this year the award was for the matching Skip Hop Zoo Straw Bottles. With its flip-top lid and straw, the Skip Hop Zoo Straw Bottle eases the transition from sippy cups, giving toddlers a ‘big kid’ cup with the protection of a spill proof lid. As the lid closes, the straw flips down to seal the cup closed, keeping the straw (and the toddler!) clean. Available in nine friendly-faced Zoo character designs, the Straw Bottle is ideal for outdoor or indoor use and great for nursery/preschool.

Maguari’s Skip Hop Duo Special Edition French Stripe changing bag received Highly Commended in the Best Changing Bag category. With all the style and functionality of the classic Skip Hop Duo but with several extra features, the Duo Special Edition French Stripe incorporates faux leather detailing, key fob zipper pull and rolled clutch handles plus shoulder strap. The canvas-effect ‘boating’ style navy striped fabric is actually wipe clean, so the bag stays looking as good as new. Skip Hop’s Shuttle Clips allow it to attach to buggy handles in seconds, plus the bag incorporates nine compartments, contrasting lining, cushioned changing pad and ‘quiet’ magnetic closures.

The Buddy Feeding Pillow from ISI Mini also picked up Highly Commended, this time in the Most Innovative Product category. A multi-use support pillow, the animal-shaped Buddy is invaluable when breastfeeding, providing crucial support and correct positioning for baby. It also offers support for mum during pregnancy and for baby when sitting or enjoying tummy time. For older children Buddy becomes a cute ‘comforter’ and an excellent travel neck support, giving five or six years of use and fantastic value for money.

Debbie Grant, Sales & Marketing Director at Maguari commented: “We’re absolutely thrilled to have received the prestigious Junior Design Award Highly Commended badge for all three of our entries this year. Here at Maguari we constantly aim to search out high quality products that are specifically designed to make the task of bringing up children just that little bit easier, and these awards provide us with the invaluable confirmation that we’re achieving that goal!”
