The World's Biggest Baby Fair has begun!


News from Cologne, Germany!

 Kind + Jugend Innovation Awards 2013 presented

For the ninth time, the Kind + Jugend Innovation Awards for the best products of the year for babies and toddlers were presented at the start of Kind + Jugend 2013. A particularly innovative idea, outstanding technology, high level of functionality or extraordinary design were again the most important criteria for the decisions of the international and independent specialist jury consisting of industry professionals, trade journalists and safety experts. This year, 145 companies from 24 countries put forward a total of 183 products for the coveted winner's seal in eight categories.

The nominees and award winners are on display in the Innovation Area in hall 11.3 of Koelnmesse until the last day of the fair on September 22.

The winners of the Kind + Jugend Innovation Award 2013 at a glance:

In the category 'World of Moving Baby', the Greentom Upp buggy by Dutch manufacturer Greentom Operations B.V. secured first place. The decisive factor for the jury's decision was the buggy's sustainable production process. The Greentom Upp consists entirely of recycled plastic and can thus simply be recycled again. The buggy is constructed in just three minutes and from only four materials, without the use of screws or bolts. As a result, the
Greentom Upp can be produced locally without importing additional components and sold at the same price in every country.

The 2wayPearl children's car seat from Dorel Europe came in on top in the category 'World of Travelling Baby'. The 2wayPearl is the first children's car seat on the market to comply with the new 'i-Size' EU standard and was thus able to fulfill the jury's safety criteria in particular. Additional advantages included the high level of seat comfort of the 2wayPearl and the possibility of transporting children facing backwards up to a height of 105 cm.

In the category 'World of Moving Baby & Travelling Baby Accessories', the Dooky Buggy Bar from Dutch company Xplorys BV took the title. The Dooky Buggy Bar is an additional element which can be fitted between the two handles of a buggy. A simple and absolutely practical solution which makes it possible to push the buggy with only one hand with very little effort.

'Runner-upʼ incentive prize
In addition to the eight winners, another product in the 'World of Moving Babyʼ category grabbed the jury's attention and was acknowledged "apart from the competitionˮ. The espresso sole from Italian manufacturer ITALTRIKE is a bus-like buggy in which up to six small passengers can take a seat. It is operated with rechargeable batteries and can be pushed by hand by one person, supported by the electric engine. All seats are equipped with seat belts. The espresso sole is manufactured entirely in Italy.
