A few months ago I received a really exciting email, me and Georgiana had been invited along to The Baby Show to meet the 2011 apprentice winner Tom Pellereau. He was getting ready to launch his brand new baby invention and wanted to show it off to a few Mum’s first, we had no idea what the invention was but couldn’t wait to find out.
On the day we were introduced to Tom (nicest guy ever…. seriously!) and he was quick to show us his new product. He had come up with something seriously simple but hugely clever, a safe but effective baby nail clipper… the Nipper Clipper! I’ll admit that I was underwhelmed at first but once I was handed the clipper and asked to give it a go on Georgie’s nails I was hugely impressed. It’s grim but we’ve always resorted to cutting the girls nails with our teeth (!?!) as the combination of a wriggling baby and a sharp nail cutter isn’t always pleasant. Even worse is when you use the nearly blunt clippers which barely make an impression on the nail.
Some genius ideas have been included in the Nipper Clipper: the curved shape of the actual clipper means it’s easy to fit over baby’s nail and the ‘spy hole’ over the clipper means you can aim precisely and avoid catching the end of your little one’s fingers. My favourite part of Nipper Clipper is the free ‘distraction app’ that you can download on to your iPad or iPhone. Frankie has happily played along with Timmy Tickle while I’ve cut her nails and Georgiana is captivated by the bright colours in the app and remains still on my lap.
You can buy a Nipper Clipper here for £9.99. Luckily I’ve been given 3 Nipper Clipper’s to give away so scroll down to enter! Good luck!!!
