It’s no secret that the team here at BYY HQ likes to shop, and top of our have-to-have-it list is anything that makes the day-to-day life of parents easier or more comfortable – and that’s exactly why we’ve put together this list. Below you’ll find our pick of the very best products that we can’t live without… and we know you’ll love them, too!
At first glance, this nifty contraption looks like a clutch handbag. But it’s nothing of the sort. It’s actually a booster seat for kids that folds up small enough to fit in your handbag. How clever?
Who is it designed to be used by? Kids aged 4 up to 12 (around 45kg) who have outgrown the car seat phase but still need a bit of extra height and safety when travelling in a car.
The beauty of it is that it’s so easy to transport so grandparents can easily keep one in the cubbyhole for when the little ones visit, take it along when you rent an Uber, it’s a cost-effective alternative to renting a booster seat when you rent a car, and you can fit three in a row in the back seat (even in smaller cars). And, of course, it meets all the necessary safety regulations. From R849, available from Takealot.

The Sibahle Collection
‘Sibahle’ is a Zulu word that means “we are beautiful”, making it an apt name for a range of Proudly South African dolls that were created to encourage black children to be comfortable in their own skin – because every child should be able to have a doll that looks like them.
The vanilla-scented dolls in The Sibahle Collection have 4c afro texture hair that can be washed, braided and conditioned, and there are loads of additional outfits to shop. Also available in the online store are clothing options for kids (not just the dolls!), party accessories, backpacks, books and puzzles. And they’ve just launch their boy range: Nsika by Sibahle Collection! Dolls from R495.
