Obaby on Hollyoaks!

So it appears that Hollyoaks have gone slightly Obaby-mad over the past week. Some of our product favourites made an exciting appearance on screen last Friday, with more Obaby cameos set for the coming months. Did anybody spot which super-stylish Hollyoaks babies were strolling in the latest in Obaby gear and lounging in our extra-cosy nursery furniture and bedding? Brownie points if you spotted us! But if you missed it, here’s the low down!

An Oscar-winning performance was given by our Obaby Chase 3 in 1 in Zigzag Orange during Ste and Sinead’s stroll with Hannah and awkward encounter with Ste’s ex John Paul. Hollyoaks cutie Hannah looked comfy and at home in the Chase carrycot, while Sinead beamed as she looked over baby in her new pram. Also included in the scene was the matching Pom Pom Changing Bag, which is included in the package and co-ordinates like a dream.

Baby Hannah was also shown in the first scene of the episode in one of our B is for Bear Moses Baskets, staying snug with some of our B is for Bear Pink Appliquéd Fleece Blankets in Pink. Cosy and sweet, Hannah laid peacefully in the basket, while slowly being rocked by mum Sinead using our Obaby Rocking Moses Stand in Country Pine – the perfect environment for Hollyoaks’ newest star.

Finally, it wasn’t just Baby Hannah that got the Obaby treatment – the adorable Minnie looked content and playful within our Obaby Grace Cot Bed in Walnut, laid on our B is for Bear bedding in Cream. At the end of the show, Patrick and Maxine’s daughter certainly looked happy in her new home, despite all the conflict that had surrounded the tot during the episode!

Obaby Royal Guide: Products Fit for a Princess

As you can probably tell, Obaby HQ has been rather excited for the new arrival of a certain teeny tiny Royal! So along with the big Union Jack changing bag giveaway we ran last week, we’ve also decided to compile a list of top Obaby booty that we are sure would make the perfect additions to the newly extended Royal family!

  1. ABC Design Zoom Tandem – ABC Design’s award-winning twin would be ideal for strolling with Prince George and his new little sister. With two seat units suitable from 6 months and newborn carrycots available separately, the Zoom would be perfect for the pair when in a seat unit/carrycot configuration. The seat units can be either parent-facing or world-facing, so George can face his little sister when on the move. There is also the option of adding a 0 + Car Seat onto the system, perfect from moving a sleepy Charlotte from outdoor fun to journeys in the car. For 2015, ABC Design has added a range of special show-stopping colours to the Zoom Tandem, and we think the striking Coral/Grape combination would be a Royal hit!

  1. ABC Design Takeoff Stroller – A cute and creative travel option, the ABC Design Takeoff would be an ingenious answer to Will and Kate’s jet set lifestyle. Suitable from 6 months, with the option of a 0 + Car Seat which fits on the stroller, the striking and stylish Takeoff folds down ultra-small in just two simple steps, ideal for plane journeys or long trips in the car. With an exciting variety of colours available, we’re sure this innovative stroller could easily find itself a place on busy Royal tours and visits.

  1. Obaby Lincoln Furniture Range – Nothing says nursery luxury like Obaby’s popular Lincoln selection of wooden furniture pieces. An effortlessly tasteful and elegant scroll design has been applied to the beautifully designed selection, which includes a Sleigh Cot Bed, Mini Cot Bed, Changing Unit and Wardrobe. Both cot beds convert seamlessly from a cot of the highest quality into an adorable toddler bed and even a stylish day bed and sofa. With three classic colour options available – country pine, white and walnut, Kate and Wills can easily find a set to co-ordinate and compliment Princess Charlotte’s new royal nursery.

  1. Disney Minnie Mouse Bedding – One thing we know for sure is that when it comes to tots, Disney is always a big hit, and for Princesses it is a must! Our new selection of licensed nursery bedding and accessories features delicate appliqué and pretty patchwork designs with gorgeous full colour illustrations of Minnie Mouse. With quilt and bumper sets for cot bed and crib, sleeping bags, a musical mobile and a moses basket, there is more than enough to turn Charlotte’s nursery into a Disney palace!
