Bednest modification

We would like to advise all our Bednest customers that a voluntary modification has been made to the product. The half-fold side will from now on be a fully-fold down side so the two sides are identical. It is important to note that there has been NO product recall and that the Bednest with its half-fold side meets both European and American standards. If you wish to make this modification to your Bednest please either send an email to info@danishbydesign.com.au or call us on 03 9588 0999 and we will send you a modification kit which will block the half-fold. The modification is very simple to do and only takes a few minutes. Please read the full statement from Bednest UK...
Done by Deer – What’s new for 2016

Done by Deer – What’s new for 2016

We introduced Done by Deer in August last year and the range has been incredibly well received. And for good reason: the products are stylish, functional and good value. 2016 will be another exciting year with lots of new offerings and some of the new products will arrive as soon as the end of this month. The new lines include more sets, colours and designs within the Eating category and the choice of plates, bibs, cups and cutlery is quite amazing. We have no doubt that you will be able to find just what you need. You will also be introduced to Elphee, a new character and yes, she is an elephant. Very cute and she fits right in with the others. You will find Elphee across the entire product range but special mention goes to her as a cuddle toy – irresistible. Another special mention goes to the new snoozy swaddles added to out LIVING category. Soft and comfy for baby and maybe lives on as your toddler’s “blankie”. Last but not least we shall do our best to keep up with the demand for the Activity Gym – your eagerness has caught us a bit by surprise. You can see the full range here and please click here to find a...
Pebernødder – Danish Christmas cookies

Pebernødder – Danish Christmas cookies

These little treat size cookies are ideal to make with or for the kids. They are in the shape of a round ball so easy to make – even for little ones – and they are small which is ideal for small tummies. You will need: 500g flour, 1/4 tsp baking powder 1/4 tsp ground cardamom, 1 tsp cinnamon, almost 1 tsp white pepper, 1 tsp ground ginger, 1 tsp ground cloves. 200g butter 350g caster sugar, 2 eggs, 2 tbsp cream or milk. Method: Mix flour with baking powder and spices. Add cold, chopped butter and mix until butter is blended into the flour. Put aside. Whisk eggs with sugar until the sugar has dissolved. Add cream/milk. Add egg mixture to the flour and combine. You can either roll the mixture into long “snakes” and cut each into small pieces the size of a hazelnut which you roll into a ball. Or you can just take dice size lumps of mixture and roll. Put onto lined baking trays and bake in the oven at 200°C for 8-10 min. – till golden brown. Cool and store in an airtight tin – although they will be gone in a flash. Enjoy. Tip: you can make double portion of the mixture and leave it in the fridge to bake another day....

How do I choose a pram?

How do I choose a pram?

We have just come back from a 3-day expo in Melbourne with Bumbleride, our American stroller (see www.bumbleride.com.au) and it was great to be able to help expecting parents find their way through the pram jungle. The common scenario is that parents-to-be find it really hard to know what to look for and to the untrained eyes the prams look more or less the same. And they are, in many regards: they all have seat, bassinets, car seat adaptors etc. BUT they do not have the same wheels! and when you are pushing a loaded pram across the park it is all about the wheels. The harder and smaller the wheels, the less places the pram can go. A really simple rule of thumb. So it is important to think about your lifestyle and what you would like to do as a parent and make sure you match the features of the pram to that. If you want to be outdoors on trails and on the beach it is no good your pram is built for an urban terrain with smooth footpaths and roads. However, the other way around is fine: large air filled tyres are as good in the city as in the bush. The second thing to look for is the size of the seat and foot well. Although a smaller built and frame means a more compact fold and possibly a lighter unit, it is absolutely no good if the size of seat has been compromised. Your child will grow and how ever many good features the pram has, it may be too small when your child...
Meet the new Leander Chair

Meet the new Leander Chair

The wonderful Leander (high) Chair just got better. With an improved safety bar and the option of a tray as well as new colour options for both the chair and the cushions it is like a brand new product! The new safety bar has a different shape; it has skirts that prevent your child from twisting the legs in order to “escape”. The Leander Chair was always designed to be used without a harness, and this new design makes a harness even less applicable. The tray is an nice option for those can’t or prefer not to seat the child at the family table. It simply clicks onto the (new) safety bar and after use can be washed in the dishwasher. Last but not least we have proudly introduced the chair in a funky grey (like the cot) so there are now 6 colours to choose from. Likewise there are new cushion colours to match the current fashion trends including sunshine yellow, raspberry red and charcoal grey to just mention 3 of the 7 options. If you would like to read more about the Leander Chair and why it is the perfect high chair, click...
