Getting Warma

Konfidence is a new brand to Hong Kong specialising in functional swimwear for children. Products include the Warma wetsuit, made from neoprene to keep children warm in the pool or sea. The wetsuit has a vest-style top making it easier to get on and off than the traditional style. A version for babies is also available, as well as float suits and swimming jackets.

Toddlers not tiddlers

For 15 years Bambino Mio has been at the forefront of a move towards reusable nappies with environmental products. Its range includes reusable swim pants, which are based on the same concept as its regular nappies except these ones are water-resistant and have fitted, concealed elasticated leg cuffs and waistband to prevent leaks into the pool. And they can double up as underwear for potty training. New prints include whales, flowers and stripes. HK$110 at BabyCentral, 7/F, BT Centre, 23 Wong Chuk Hang Road, Aberdeen, tel: 2553 8000
