What we believe and stand for
We believe that every baby has a right to grip, grasp, hold, throw, chew, suck, creep, crawl, shake, dance, kick, flail about and sometimes even fall down. All of these actions are the building blocks upon which your baby will build their future skills. Skills like being able to sit attentively, hold a pencil, learn to write their name, do up a button or tie their shoelaces.
We believe that high-quality baby products will help your baby’s neurological development and ensure that your baby lives up to his or her in-built potential. We believe that those products should look great, feel amazing, solve problems and that they should all be organic and sustainably produced. We don’t believe in good enough. We don’t believe in nasty ingredients.
We believe in babies.

Moment and the launch Creeper Crawlers® in 2012.
With Creeper Crawlers® (the big brother of COGNIKIDS®), my team and I focused on designing and producing baby clothing that would help little wrigglers get a grip on slippy floors.
The Easy Grip Crawl Suit® helped (and still helps!) babies to
crawl safely and successfully on the smoothest of modern floor surfaces. I was
thrilled that I could empower babies to explore their world, helping to promote
healthy bodies and brain development.
In 2015, I decided to expand the business to create a wider range of developmental products.
I rebranded us to COGNIKIDS and began to add to our awesome product range.
At the heart of our rebrand I maintained my commitment to:
