bubble&dream have created an effortless bath-to-bedtime experience aimed at bringing families closer together by providing a range of tools to help Little Dreamers have the best night’s sleep possible. The range of wonderfully developed products centred around a lovable dream expert ‘Hatch’ who takes children on a magical journey as part of their bedtime routine. ‘Hatch’s dreamset’ is based on three key elements:
- The bubbly wash that will coat your Little Dreamers in magic
- A soft glowing star to send their dream wishes to Hatch
- A beautifully illustrated book mapping out the adventures to Dreamland
The bubble&dream products are all cruelty free, ethically sourced and with no nasties so are perfect for your little ones, even for those with the softest of skin. You may have spotted the beautifully designed sets in Curated, our Herb House shop, and we spoke to the founder's Laura and Helen to find out more about them…
Tell us a bit about bubble&dream
bubble&dream is a magical way of making children's bedtimes better for all the family.
We created a unique bath-to-bedtime experience centred around three key elements. A natural bubbly wash that “coats your Little Dreamer in magic,” a beautifully illustrated book mapping out the adventure to Dreamland; and a soft glowing star plush that your little one sleeps with and sends their Dream wishes to ‘Hatch,’ a magical character in the accompanying book that catches their wishes and turns them into dreams. The products encourage calmness and positivity at bedtime.
What was the inspiration for starting Bubble and Dream?
A simple answer to this was that we wanted to make bedtimes easier. With 3 little girls between us, we understood the challenges faced at bedtime.
After a busy day at work, I loved returning home and putting my little ones to bed, however, there would be days I would crave the old days when I could just walk through the door and fall on the sofa with a big glass of wine. I wasn't afraid to admit that a helping hand at bedtime wouldn't go amiss. Helen on the other hand, with her love for the magic of make-believe, wanted to bring something magical to children's bedtime, a little like the concept of Elf on the Shelf, only for 365 days of the year and not just at Christmas.
We wanted to create a fantastic brand that inspired children's imaginations and encouraged us all to take things back to basics, be present and enjoy the moment just before bedtime. (Oh, that was also eco, natural, and did lots of good…no pressure!)
With one of us from the creation of luxury skincare brands including, REN, Miller Harris, and the wonderful Bamford, and the other from the wonderful world of Formula One we felt we had complimenting skills to achieve this.
Tell us about your products and how they are made.
Our products are designed here in good old blighty, with our bubbly Dreamwash made right here on the South Coast*. They are considered with the simple intention of making bedtimes a little easier.
Our beautifully embroidered star found in our Dreamset provides a soft glow and comfort at bedtime, also calming little ones' minds with the introduction to S.T.A.R breathing.
And our Dreamwash, a natural, gentle formulation with marshmallow extract creating magical bubbles, starflower (the wonderful purple flowers seen in abundance in our fields in the summertime) locking in precious moisture, chamomile and lavender promoting sleepiness, and other natural ingredients all helping calm at bedtime.
*Of course, to all our Little Dreamers Hatch makes all the magical products up in Dreamland!
What makes your products unique?
There are plenty of products on the market claiming to help children sleep better, we are helping make bedtimes easier by providing a narrative and the tools to take your little one from bath to bed in very simple steps.
Have you got any exciting upcoming projects?
We are very excited to announce that we have been busily hatching our very own little Hatch soft toy. We have brought his launch forward and he will be available for Christmas, along with our personalised Christmas letters... all very exciting.
We are also working on our next book. Along with being a beautiful, ethical, inspirational brand, we want to encourage essential skills in our children. Our first book introduces children to mindfulness, something very close to our hearts hence the link with Mind, with Kindness being our next topic. We will be introducing Hatch's trusty companion, the Bisox (he looks like a mix between a bison and an ox!) Zed… we are always looking for ways to help our little ones develop skills to help them navigate their way through their days.
