A gorgeous, multifunctional playpen hammock, a nifty and fashionable care bag or a whale-shaped pushbike: Hebeco is always on the hunt for new and unique brands that fit your and your baby’s needs. Belgium-based company Hebeco distributes a full range of baby products such as prams, bathing products, toys, entire room decorations and more, all from high-quality brands. Owners and siblings Anthony and Caroline Van der Heyden carefully selected gorgeous items that will awaken the child in you. “We’re always looking for attractive and innovative products with a playful touch, that meet the demands of modern parents,” Anthony explains.

bike. And it is practical too: “Its silent rubber wheels keep your floor scratch free, they’re outdoor proof and the bike is adjustable in height, making one single Bontoy suitable for kids from one to six years old.” There’s more to the durability of this design: part of Bontoy’s profit is donated to a foundation that is committed to preventing whale killings. Anthony: “A cause we’re happy to support.” The newest addition to Hebeco’s selection is another eye catcher: Hangloose Baby, a stylish and multifunctional playpen hammock. “This beautiful idea was created by five dads from The Hague,” Anthony explains. “The hammock is easy to attach to the playpen and can be used as a rug too. And when your baby is ready to crawl, it is a perfect play mat. With origami-like techniques, you can fold it into a cosy, tiny nest.”
Indispensable products like strollers, care bags and prams can be a source of frustration, but not the ones Hebeco distributes: Italian brand Peg Perego creates lightweight strollers with manoeuvrable wheels, and you can easily turn the carriage into a buggy when your baby grows up. The brand Skip Hop offers smart and trendy care bags, as well as a wide range of stylish and playful toys, mats and more. And last but definitely not least, Hebeco is an agent of Paidi: baby rooms that effortlessly transform and become timeless, yet hyper-modern kids’ rooms. So whether you or your baby wants to sit, sleep or play: Hebeco offers a wide range of useful and durable solutions.
