The outdoor toy company will take a new direction with the Mookie Nursery range, which includes a variety of folding nursery products.

Quicksmart is a range of portable tricycles for children between one and three years. Using an easy three-step action the tricycles fold down into a compact size. Two trikes, named the Scuttlebug and the Scramblebug, are inspired by real insects such as ladybugs, beetles and bumblebees.

Ideal for flying, the Easy Fold Backpack Stroller is small enough to fit into an overhead compartment and just 3.9kg. The Easy Fold Stroller is a more robust option weighing seven kg, with a four step folding motion.

Completing the Quicksmart range are more foldable products including a carrycot, travel cot and a high chair.

Mookie will also distribute Ben Bat travel products, including Seat Belt Pals, neck supports (pictured) and the Go Vinci “look what I made” backpack.
