Rubiks National

Sunday 4th November saw a new King of the Cube crowned at Leicester University. 15 year old Alexander Lau beat off tough competition to be the new UK Champion with an average time of 9.24 seconds! As well as facing almost 100 human competitors from 9 countries, Lau also had to face stiff competition from the world’s fastest 3x3x3 Rubik’s Cube solver, the Cubestormer II robot! The mechanical wonder, created by Mike Dobson and David Gilday, stole the show and although not officially entered to compete, completed the Cube in around 5 seconds alongside the MultiCuber and MindCuber robots, who were also at the event showcasing their Rubik’s Cube solving skills.

There was also more success for the UK with student Simon Crawford from Nottingham winning the iconic Rubik’s Cube 3x3x3 ONE HANDED competition.

Staying stylish and elegant is the motto for Bibee Dresses
One dress. Any Occasion.


Maintaining a stylish wardrobe when becoming a new mum, is a dream we all have, but it is not always easy. Baby feeding inevitably means yourBibee dress outfits are regularly decorated with milk stains and you quickly become frustrated, or ambivalent, about what you look like. Stylish new designer, Bibee Dresses, brings a trouble-free solution to new mums who are not prepared to compromise on style or quality.

The perfect dress for maternity and breast-feeding, the Bibee Dress has a smart design that allows you to change the chest or ‘Bib’ of your dress - creating a capsule wardrobe, which avoids last minute ‘what to wear’ dilemmas and gives hassle-free access for breast-feeding. Perfect in an emergency, you simply carry an extra Bibee Bib in your nappy bag, along with baby’s spare outfit, for a quick change anywhere, ensuring pregnant ladies and new mum’s always look great - no matter what the day holds.

Bibee Bibs come in a range of beautiful designs and colours, perfect for both daytime dressing and evening glamour. By simply purchasing a range of Bibs co-ordinating with your favourite Bibee Dress, you have an instant maternity wardrobe that will take you from mummy-time to me-time.

The luxury fabric and A-line cut of the dress flatters a growing bump and doesn't cling to a post baby figure, helping new-mums feel more glamorous until their figure returns to its pre-pregnancy shape. The dress is pleated, disguising the waist and giving a sophisticated swing to the skirt.

The removable Bibee Bib is designed to open at one side, allowing breast-feeding mums the opportunity to subtly feed when out and about, without the need of a cover-up. Attached by buttons on the shoulders and under the arms, the Bibee Bib covers the areas most susceptible to stains, such as the shoulders and chest, and can be easily removed and replaced.

The staple maternity wardrobe item that will carry you through pregnancy and beyond, the Bibee Dress will save the wearer:

Money - by reducing sporadic ‘help me I have a new figure’ purchases;
Time - deciding what to wear;
Washing and ironing - as you can simply wash the Bibee Bib in isolation…

and it makes breast-feeding easy! The Bibee Dress is a perfect choice for a busy mummy who is not prepared to compromise on style or quality.
Bibee Dresses including a matching Bibee Bib start at a RRP of £175.00 with individual Bibee Bibs available at RRP £40.00-£50.00 The Bibee Bib range includes designs incorporating flowers, birds, jewellery and more. Bibee T-shirts are also available to sit underneath the Bibee Dress RRP£40.

B Kids Double Award Win in recent Practical Pre-School Awards 2012

Over the years Practical Pre-School awards have gone from strength to strength, delivering key information to parents in relation to Baby and Nursery items that have been rigorously tested and are voted award winners due to the expert design and versatility for parents and children.

This year B Kids were delighted to receive the prestigious Practical Pre-School Silver award for our innovative Watch over Me Dream Station and Bronze award for our Music Mates Smart Phone.

The Watch Over Me Dream Station is a first – a new sleep station with ‘Smart Sensor Sleeping Programme’. Utilising SMART Sensing TechnologyB Kids Watch over Me Dream Station which is based on detection and measurement of Body Heat, Motion and Sound which results in a comprehensive monitoring of a baby’s sleeping phases. On average newborns sleep from 13-16 hours per day during the first three months. It takes about 4-6 month to train your infant to sleep smoothly and this makes the first 4 months an important period in helping your baby develop a sleep pattern that it ultimately will adopt, as it will lead to better sleep habits throughout their early teen years. For this reason, parents always seek advice and products that will help to create a soothing environment for their children as a means of putting them to bed, not only at night, but also during naptime as well. Watch Over Me becomes the first device on the market that helps create a consistent environment aid, putting your infants to bed, watches over them throughout the night and gently wakes them up when sleeping is over.

What made this an award winning item? Just one of the testers comments:

Wow! The dream station is totally unique, the sounds are amazing and it helps by playing music until infants fall asleep. The smart sensor knows when the baby is waking, it has five smart sleeping programmes and the mood light is lovely. We use this every day and love it!
