Baby Compact - minimise the bulk
Take a look at the picture above: it's just a strap, right?
Right. But it's also one of those ideas that are both simple and devastatingly helpful. It's called the Bib Easy and it has a crocodile clip at each end. If you find yourself out without a bib, all you need to do is attach a serviette or napkin to each end. And there's no dirty bib to carry around afterwards.
This is just one product from Swedish company Baby Compact (select 'English' bottom left to see the translated site). Clearly they have a flair for the practical and unusual. Also showcased on their site is the See Better, an inflatable cushion that can be used in cinemas and theatres to raise the eye level of your kids, and the Sit and Carry (below) which is a side-carrier for children up to 2.5 years old, and also converts into a chair harness. Ingenious.
