    Hello and a very warm welcome to the Top 100 Baby Products, the UK’s first completely free guide to the best Baby Products, chosen entirely by you – the parents!

    Starting from the 21st of March, parents from across the country will be able to cast their votes on what Baby Products best helped them through the early stages of bringing up their toddlers! The result will be a guide, available in print and online, that will help direct new parents to which products helped improve their parenting experience.

    We wanted to create the Top 100 baby Products after our own experience as wide eyed parents of two young children very close in age. We struggled to find a guide that would help us make the right choices and probably made far too many silly purchases that at best, make for humorous conversation when looking back. So we decided that there should be a simple, clean, one-stop guide to engage everyone and anyone entering the world of baby products!

    For those attending our special launch event in Notting Hill London this coming Saturday, we very much look forward to seeing you and your little ones. If you have missed the news on this please email us at hello@top100babyproducts.com for more information – we have a leave no parent behind policy!

    Again, we’d like to thank you for visiting our website and we hope that you’ll be sharing your wonderful stories with us and voting for your favourite baby products very soon.

    OKAY I'M ANGRY! If this is not a platform to share your opinions then where else right?! So here it goes, you may have seen Mattel are doing a Barbie version of FRIDA KAHLO, the profoundly inspirational Mexican Artist. Well on the surface it sounds positive – celebrating female cultural icons etc, but it’s in fact not at all what it seems. . . Zac and I adore this woman and are huge fans. Frida Kahlo represented not just a fearless and boundless expression of individuality, but she stood firmly on the side of those in society that were forgotten about. In her art she explored questions of identity, post-colonialism, gender, class, and race in Mexican society. She was simply brilliant, and an inspiration to all us mothers raising daughters. . . Salma Hayek portrayed her brilliantly in the 2002 Bipoic (please watch it if you haven’t already!) and said Frida was “one of the forces that gave me the determination to pursue my career”. . . On to what Mattel are doing. Firstly – despite what some bloggers like to shill on social media, the Barbie doll is not something positive for any child in my view. It does not represent uniqueness, and when Frida becomes SLIM and more LIGHT SKINNED with LIGHT EYES, that’s when lines are being crossed. This is not just cultural appropriation for commercial gain, but the very colonial re-shaping of identity she stood against. . . LEAVE FRIDA ALONE.
