Technology giant D-Link has appointed bébélephant as their UK and Ireland Distributor for their EyeOn range of baby monitors. The impressive range of three monitors will suit all budgets, with even the most basic (RRP £69.99) incorporating many of the features one would normally expect in top of the range competitors including lullabies and two-way audio.
The appointment follows another year of growth in the monitoring sector, particularly for bébélephant's BabyPing monitor for iOS. "As demonstrated in research provided for Nursery Today the baby monitoring sector is extremely important. Further, given the growing demand for ever more sophisticated monitors, we have been looking for another partner for 2015 and beyond to join our existing offering. D-Link's EyeOn range fits like a glove," said Elliot Bishop of bébélephant.
BabyPing's updated model launches in Spring 2015 which together with the EyeOn range, bébélephant hope will cement them as the UK distributor of choice for cutting edge monitors.

Innovation leads the way, says bébélephant
Published: January 2014, Nursery Industry
Specialist distributor Bébélephant has reported a sharp increase in turnover for the first six months trading of 2013-14, putting the strong sales down to “a return of consumer confidence and the long-awaited return of the innovator in this sector of the economy.”
CEO Elliot Bishop added that all the company’s leading brands have performed well – with the BabyPing wifi monitor now in all but a couple of the major retailers, MilkySnugz bottle comforters to be stocked in Tesco and Myyfeed with “a full order book for SS14.”
And it is 2014 that looks like the most promising for years he believes. “In the last few months, we have been meeting with innovators on a regular basis and the ideas being pitched to us – often with physical prototypes – are mind blowing,” he said and added: “The end of the recession has brought out the best of British entrepreneurs.”
Bébélephant is just launching one such product – the patent-pending Justafit adjustable sleepsuit manufactured by Infasense. With adjustable cuffs and ankles, it aims to eliminate the trip and slip hazards that onesies can pose.
