Otto Has Hatched!

Today is the day! Otto the Octopus has officially hatched from his egg! Parents and babies around the globe now have a chance to get the wonderful octopus baby feeder for themselves! Just head on over to Otto’s Kickstarter quickly to get Otto at a 40% discount (just £15!) for the first 100 feeders sold.

From the initial idea forming, to the designing, to having one Otto made for my own babies, it has been a long journey in bringing Otto to life and available to many more babies. There have been ups and downs throughout the journey but if I had to do it all again, I would.

Otto the Octopus has been tried and tested and I am extremely happy with the results. I hope that all the people who purchase Otto for themselves will received the same amount of joy and happiness that my babies and family have experienced!

Thank you to everyone who has supported Otto throughout his conception to his arrival. This became a project of passion from the moment it started, and so from the bottom of my heart I am truly thankful.


Otto has been featured… Three times!

It has been a great few weeks for Otto the Octopus. An article we published about the healthy and nutritional foods that babies should be eating has been featured on both Textbook Mommy, Playbuzz and Medium!

It feels great that more parents are becoming informed about the importance of their babies eating a healthy diet and the nutritional values that different foods can provide. The article also looks at how Otto can be used to help get babies eating healthy food and recommends some different recipes (which can be found on my blog, below) that contain a multitude of different vitamins and nutrition.#gootto

Many more people are becoming aware of Otto the Octopus and the benefits he can provide to babies, as well as the importance of a balanced nutritional diet. And that’s fantastic!

Otto’s won an award!

Otto the Octopus has now officially been honoured with an award by the A’ Design Award and Competition at a gala event in Como, Italy!

Having my design praised is such a privilege and I feel very fortunate for Otto to be associated with such an esteemed organisation.

Otto started out as just a personal project as a result of the frustration I experienced when feeding my babies during their weaning phase. I designed multiple iterations to ensure that Otto was both safe and appealing to my babies until I finalised on the design. My little ones and my friend’s children ended up absolutely loving it. I knew I had made something special.

Fast-forwarding a little, I noticed the upcoming A’Design Awards competition and thought I would enter to see what others thought of the design of Otto. It turned out that others have a similar love for Otto as my children and I do.

I would like to say a big thank you to all the judges, voters and supporters of Otto through his journey, as well as all my friends and family who have stood by my side over the years.

Otto has since been nominated for the Prime Designer of the Year Award. Wish us both luck in the upcoming competition.
