Win a MyBabyLog Gift Set!
Direct2Mum have teamed up with MyBabyLog to offer our members the chance to win a beautiful gift set.
A Bournemouth based inventor has created a unique way for parents to keep mementos of their children’s first experiences in the world. Born in 2007, MyBabyLog Memory Chest is a few years in the making, having been through tough but essential stages of development and critiquing. Now, the woman behind it is ready to bring this dream product to market.
Barbara Fowler or Bournemouth, Dorset, understands parenting. She put her own dreams on hold whilst supporting her husband David and bringing up their daughter Siobhan, ensuring that she was afforded an excellent education and a great quality of life, but now Barbara plans on turning her dreams into a reality.
The MyBabylog Memory Chest allows parents to keep safe all of baby’s firsts, such as:
- My Family Tree
- My Treasured Memories - Magnetic Mounted Envelope
- My Window of Life - Mounted Picture Frame
- My 1St lock of Hair Box
- My Baby Teeth Box
- My Hospital I.D. Band Box
- Baby Poem for Boy or Girl
- MyBabylog Gift Card
Barbara had the product made in China, which presented its own unique set of challenges. But even with the negatives piling up along with the costs and the stress, this never stopped her: “If you believe in what you created and see a gap in the market place for it - even against all the odds – you carry on!” she explained.
To ensure that the product was commercially viable, she eventually took the finished product to Bournemouth University and paid to have a critique, which proved to be a valuable exercise and allowed her to make the necessary tweaks to her product. Commercial activity commenced thereafter, selling on their website and in niche gift shops in Bournemouth.
One of Barbara’s initiatives over the past 3 years has been to donate a MyBabylog to the first Baby born on Christmas day to Bournemouth Maternity Unit and also Poole Maternity Unit – which makes the new mum’s day that little bit extra special, having been in Hospital over the Christmas.
This fantastic gift set from MyBabyLog includes:
- MyBabyLog Memory Chest
- My 1st Heartbeat
- Inkwells Hand and Foot Print Kit
