sun hatWe’ve put together a list of our best multi-functional, space saving products to ensure there’s space for your favourite wedges and maybe even a book in the off chance there’s time for reading.

Our large muslins are available in a variety of prints and have multiple functions, use it as a light blanket when your child is napping, a cover to provide shade, to dry off at the beach, the light cotton is super-fast drying or knot into a hat for your little one. You could even use the paisley print as a shawl on the cooler nights.

We know little ones will spend most of their holiday barefoot, so there’s no point in packing more than one pair of shoes. Our summer clogs will cover them for all activities; the beach, the pool, dinner and day time strolls.

Forget the straw hat, you will end up carrying it around when your little one gets fed up of wearing it, instead pack one of our quick drying sun hats that can be folded and popped in your hand bag or suitcase.

Save space on bulky carriers or even leave the buggy at home if you have a very little one and take the K’tan carrier instead, young babies can happily nap while in the carrier, leaving you hands-free for a cooling glass of wine. Can be used with toddlers, but always check the guidelines on our website first.

No need for bulky beakers with Chilli Peeps, they’ve come up with a fantastic invention, a spout that can be screwed onto most drinks containers making them suitable for young children to drink from.

A JoJo bestseller! Don’t panic about visiting unknown restaurants and worrying where your little one can sit securely, this pocket highchair can be used on most chairs and then folded into a bag slightly bigger than a deck of cards; you won’t even notice it’s there!

For mums-to-be, our tunic will cover you for all occasions on holiday, dress up with a pair of comfy wedges for the evening or a pair of sandals for lunch or just throw on with your flip-flops for a cool cover up.

And for the best bit, ALL of this can fit in one of our trunkies, with room to spare for the can’t live without teddy bear and when little legs get tired they can hop on for a ride. Sorted!
