Watch this space

Keeping children safely in sight during outings is a difficult responsibility, and even the most diligent parents can momentarily lose sight of their children. The Me Finder helps children find their parents when they get lost. It looks like a watch but the digital wristband has the capacity to store five telephone numbers. The screen can be set to display the number of the person a child is out with and, should they become separated, the child can show the display to an adult and ask them to call the number.

Large fabric wall stickers that can be removed and reused are US company Pop and Lolli's speciality. The Tree of Knowledge - which is 135cm tall and comes with the trunk and 26 'leaves', or letters - allows children to create and change their own tree or alphabet mural.
