Believe it or not, this marvellous-looking piece of design genius was created by a one man band – 33 year old Shaun Milburn who has overseen the creation of his brand Babycotpod every step of the way. He’s a design engineer and dad to two boys and he whipped up this divine invention in the months after his second son was born in September 2008.
There are actually two models: the ‘Cascara’, which is the elite model, with a built-in hood and retractable carry handle, and the less expensive ‘Cuba’. The Cuba does not have a hood or retractable carry handle but both cots do have built-in grab handles for lifting on and off the ‘Tang’ stand. The stand will available in either wood or plastic moulding. The interior soft furnishings will be available in a plethora of colours and are removable for washing and for subsequent babies.
Now all Shaun needs is a little help to get this awesome product into production. Ideally he’d like to build the brand from the ground up with a business partner. We wish him all the very best with it and we’re sure our readership will be waiting keenly to hear of Babycotpod products being released to the market.
We totally love his vision of the best bassinette money can buy. This one will suit lovers of all that is ultra-modern and will definitely snag new parents who love sci-fi and futuristic aesthetics. I can almost imagine a clear cover extending smoothly over the open top and the pod being propelled into space for baby’s first interplanetary travel!
