Our tester said:
“Brilliant to think this is made of recycled fishing gear! Very sturdy and well-made.
Initially, I thought it was a bit pricey. But as the Micro Scooters LED ECO Scooter is designed to grow with the child, it will hopefully prove to be more economical in the long run. We love the LED lights, which enhance safety on dark evenings or dull days, if you’re out and about.”

(RRP £17.99), from Splash About International
About the product: The Happy Nappy DUO is a sustainable alternative to disposable swim nappies. Approved by baby swim schools as the mandatory double nappy requirement. The 2-in-1 DUO is the only swim nappy to contain faecal leaks. With its advanced anti-bacterial Silver Lining, it effectively eliminates any faecal bacteria that may be present.
Although chlorine is commonly used to sanitise pool and leisure centre water, unfortunately, some bacteria found in faecal matter simply cannot be eliminated by chlorine alone. It can cause unpleasant stomach illnesses like vomiting and diarrhoea if it enters pool water. This is why the Happy Nappy DUO are such a worthy winner in the Best Early Years Eco Products category. The anti-bacterial Silver Lining eliminates any faecal bacteria that may be present, ensuring peace of mind for parents.
Cleaner water, reusable, 100% reliable & durable, it’ll last as long as it fits your baby (approximately 6-12 months). The DUO is cost-effective & eco-friendly. Parents can now ditch disposables with confidence, reducing both household & landfill waste, where disposables take up to 500 years to decompose.
