Design products for babies and children

All baby and children’s products shown on Red Dot 21 have the distinction of offering exceptional design quality and will appeal to both young and old. Just as in the other product groups, our aim is not to present as many products as possible in the Babies and toddlers category, but only those that satisfy the highest design criteria. To allow you to complement existing baby equipment, we present selected children’s car seats, toys, baby carriers, pushchairs and children’s room furniture that won us and our Red Dot design experts over with their great design. So you have come to the right place if you are looking for something special for a baby or a toddler. Here you can find infant carriers and car seats, designed so that they not only meet the highest safety standards, but are also very comfortable. Every year, we receive an exceptionally large number of well-designed entries in the “Pushchair” category of the Red Dot Design Award. Companies from all over the world present buggies, twin strollers of sports buggies that have been carefully thought through right down to the last detail. They are simple and practical to use, can, in some cases, be folded down to become very small, or are modular in their concept so that you are not forced to switch to a different buggy when the child turns two. Alternatively or in addition, there are baby carriers, whose ergonomic design makes them comfortable for both parent and child even over longer distances.

More beautiful homes with designer children’s furniture

Style conscious parents can find amazingly designed and functionally well thought-out children’s beds, highchairs and desk in the “Children’s room” category on Red Dot 21. Many of them are based on the building-block principle and are designed to grow along with the child for a few years. They also go to show that children’s furniture doesn’t have to be brightly coloured in order to be child-friendly. As a rule, toys already bring enough colour and chaos into children’s rooms. From the parents’ perspective, it is quite refreshing if the furniture provides a calm visual focal point, but is still robust enough to withstand wild romps and jumping around without any problem. There are also always plenty of new, innovative ideas and products for toys and children’s vehicles – sit-on cars, scooters, balance bikes and bicycles – that will make children’s eyes light up and that can be understood and used intuitively. Once more, many designers quite deliberately rely on reduced design in order to stimulate kids’ imagination instead of flooding them with stimuli. Many Red Dot award-winning products in this section are great examples of toys that are both beautiful and educationally worthwhile without being laden with technology. No matter what type of baby or children’s product you are looking for, when making a selection, you should always ensure that the item you choose is designed with children in mind, is safe, hardwearing and free of hazardous substances. That applies both to baby and children’s clothing, but of course in particular to all baby products such as pacifiers, bottles, sippy cups and children’s cutlery. You will find these types of designer products for babies and children that meet the highest standards here in this category of Red Dot 21. We hope you’ll enjoy taking a look.
