Vital Baby Unbelievabowl
The new Vital Baby Unbelievabowl has been designed to stick to a highchair tray or table top with ultimate, super suction power. A simple four-step process ensures that the Unbelievabowl stays put, meaning that your baby will not be able to remove the bowl or spill the contents, all helping to make meal times less stressful and definitely less messy. The child-proof locking mechanism means that baby cannot unlock the bowl. In terms of its ecological credentials, the Unbelievabowl is made from safe BPA, latex and PVC-free materials and manufactured to conform to EN14372. RRP €6.99, pack of two spare Unbelievabowls to use with Unbelievabowl base €5.49 – available in blue, pink and orange. The Unbelievable Bowl has also been nominated for the presti¬gious Kind Und Jugend Innovation Award 2009. Vital Baby can be found at www.vitalbaby.co.uk/www.vitalbaby.com and www.oceanhealthcare.ie.
