UK Company Rainbow Designs was established in 1971 and specialises in manufacturing high quality licenced soft toys and children's gifts. Wholesaler Baby Brands Direct has worked exclusively with them in the distribution of their plush toys to the independent sector since 2011. The range of characters selected is predominately based on book properties that are celebrated in nurseries and schools and hence provide addition learning and play value opportunities. In addition the collection offers a wide ranging age appeal and often nostalgic qualities that are heightened by TV appearances and movie releases.

Retailers can choose plush toys from Peter Rabbit, Elmer, Paddington Bear, Miffy, Eric Carle, Elmer, Guess How Much I Love You and The Snowman. The baby and infant products range includes rattles, baby comforters, pop ups, pull alongs, activity spirals and gift sets. The manufacturer prides itself in exceeding expectations in delivery of high quality nursery products in its use of design and materials whilst retaining the classic essence of the original characters.

Baby Brands Direct’s range of licensed feeding sets has been an increasingly popular choice for retailers to fulfil their stock with. You can find baby food feeders, food storage pots, weaning utensils, weaning and feeding cutlery, snack pots, baby bibs, weaning bowls, plates, cups and sets as well as food processors. As a favourite nursery wholesaler, our inventory consists of leading and trustworthy brands like Munchkin, Annabel Karmel, Nuby, Beaba, Babymoov, Philips and many other experts in the industry. Our clients have access to a variety of different baby food preparation tools that not only make it easier to prepare food, but also allow for more variety in the types of food parents can introduce to the little one.

Researches show that parents prefer to invest in baby food making devices as it saves them time and it helps building healthy eating habits from the beginning. Devices like the Beaba Pro Baby Food Maker have made making baby food a snap. With such testimonies we have been witnessing a swift growth in the food preparation and weaning products’ sales.

Zara Grindrod, Director of Sales at Rainbow Designs said, “Baby Brands Direct will offer a comprehensive, professional and highly effective distribution channel for Rainbow Designs’ licensed classic character baby toys and gifts. We are delighted to now have an exclusive nursery wholesale partnership with Baby Brands Direct and we are confident their prestigious portfolio of high profile brands and exceptional industry know-how makes for a highly successful and long-lasting partnership.”

All Rainbow Design products are produced to meet the highest standards of manufacture, ensuring safety and security for the consumer. All toys are tested to EN71 standards, and all production facilities subject to regular inspection. The company is also committed to the long-term development of each of their properties and has worked for many years with several of the leading licensing agencies.


One of the prime reasons for the sector’s progress is the fact that nowadays moms are 50 times busier and do not have the cooking skills that women did when baby food was introduced 80 years ago. Another major factor is the baby healthy eating trend that has been quickly developing throughout 2015. Parents and especially moms prefer home-made and healthy food choices for their babies. Therefore, they buy functional devices that can fit their lifestyles and needs.

Baby Brands Direct gives you the opportunity to capitalise on this trend via offering you a portfolio of products which fulfil the whole feeding routine. Discover the bestselling items in a wide range of designs, colours and shapes.
