I dare you not to squeal at the adorable, brand new, personalised nursery accessory from Cotterpillar. These super-soft and squishy pieces make the ideal keepsake gift for a new baby that will grow with them throughout their childhood.

If you like babies and other cute things, I know you’re going to LOVE CotterpillarThese bespoke and beautifully made pieces are totally customisable and make the ideal present for the teeniest people in your life.

The brainchild of Island-born, Winchester-based Mel Panario.  Mel has taken the Cotterpillar from concept through to production, flying halfway across the world to find a manufacturer who shared her vision of a beautifully made product that is also ethically made.

The end product? A beautiful, neutral-toned addition to your nursery. Fully customisable with your baby’s name, a dreamy word, or one or more of the four stunning design pieces, the choice is all yours!

Each Cotterpillar comes in its very own drawstring calico bag and is stuffed with luxurious tissue wrapping, perfect for gifting.

The bag is then useful for baby laundry, toy storage or a myriad of other things. Cotterpillar grows with baby

And when the tiny ones grow out of the cot, their Cotterpillar can be mounted on a special Cotterpillar Shelf with its hardwood pegs, perfect for looking after their hats, coats, ballet bags, book bags and more!

This is surely soon going to be a nursery “Must Have”!
