Done by Deer wins international design award
The Activity Gym from Done by Deer has been awarded with the prestigious Red Dot Award: Product Design 2016

31th March 2016 – At this year’s Red Dot Award the jury selected the Done by Deer Activity Gym to receive one of the prestigious awards amongst no less than 5,214 products and innovations from 57 nations submitted for the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2016. Only products which set themselves apart considerably, through their excellent design, receive the sought-after quality seal from the international Red Dot jury.

The Activity Gym
The idea by the Done by Deer design team was to create a unique and flexible activity gym that does not require a baby blanket to stand – a new take on the classic activity gym. The award winning result is the free standing and easily adjustable Activity Gym that can be placed anywhere e.g. on the floor, bed, sofa or on the changing table. The Activity Gym not only sparks the imagination of the little ones but is also a modern design piece in the home.

Width and height of the Activity Gym can easily be adjusted, an innovative feature that also helps babies reach the three eye catching toys which can be hung from the center of the arc. The included toys, Croco, Nozo and a hanging mirror, will crackle and rattle when touched, all to stimulate a baby’s senses. A mirror on one leg of the arc and a soft patch on the other also attract the attention of little eyes and fingers.


The Activity Gym is soft and safe for babies to play with, it stands firmly on its two feet and being flexible it is no problem to store away, move around or bring along when going places.

Tiny toys

 

Done by Deer wins
5th Red Dot Design Award
The Done by Deer Tiny Activity Toys have been awarded
with the prestigious Red Dot Award: Product Design 2018

9 April 2018 – Done by Deer is proud to announce that for the 5th time a Done by Deer product range has been awarded the coveted quality seal of the Red Dot Award. Selected amongst no less than 6300 products and innovations from 59 nations submitted for the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2018 the Tiny Activity Toys are being honoured for its excellent and innovative design.

In previous years Done by Deer has won the Red Dot Design Award for the Activity gym,Activity play mat, Little interiors furniture and Yummy+ dinnerware.

Tiny toys
With inspiration from the tiniest ones, the idea of the Done by Deer design team was to create a collection of baby toys that supports the early development of fine motor skills.

The toys are designed in soft and subtle colours with great attention to detail and with playful and eye-catching features that will trigger the baby’s curiosity and develop the reflexes and coordination skills. Being smaller, it’s easier for tiny hands to grasp and activate the tiny rattles.


From birth, a baby’s movements are based on reflexes and within the first six months the baby will start to react to sounds, grasp and examine things with the mouth, explore different textures, and use both hands when playing.


The tiny activity toys are specially designed for these first precious months – each with a clear focus on the baby’s development stages.

At the age of 2-4 months the baby’s movements are sudden and controlled only by reflexes. The Tiny sensory rattle is designed to fit even the tiniest hand and by the slightest uncontrolled movement the soft Croco rattle will make a sound, which will trigger the baby’s curiosity and stimulate its reflexes.


At the age of 3-5 months the baby starts to be interested in exploring and will love the chewy material and sweet sound of the Tiny teething rattle. The Deer friends texture on the chewing ring will stimulate both the visual, oral, and tactile senses of the baby.


At the age of 4-6 months the baby will begin to investigate and explore using both hands. The handle of the Tiny activity string rattle is easy to hold while the other hand explores the fun and textured strings. The different materials and the sound inside the cute Antee handle will stimulate the baby’s senses and trigger the explorer within.

The three tiny activity toys are now in stores and they are available in a gift box as well as individual items.
