A few weeks ago, I attended the launch of Nipper Clipper, latest product of inventor Tom Pellereau and Lord Sugar that has been designed to cut baby’s little nails.
Stylfile created a pop up shop in Neal’s Yard to showcase the new invention and even cute Tom’s little baby – only 12 days at the time – was present on the day.
Nipper Clipper (RRP £9.99) is a baby nail clipper with a unique spy hole and no slip handle for easy grip. It comes with a soft S-file baby and distraction app. It has a scissor-like action making the clipper smooth and sharp, and it is suitable for children aged 0 to 4 years old.
Nipper Clipper has been designed to make cutting baby’s nails easier and safer. It has a safety spy hole which lets you see exactly what you are cutting, avoiding the risk of cutting baby’s skin and having painful accidents. I remember very well how soft little man’s nails were when he was a baby, so it is great that you can see what you are about to cut before pressing down the clipper.
Although little man is not a baby anymore, his nails are still quite soft and sometimes we have accidents that end up in tears. I was pleased to try Nipper Clipper on him, I had no problems cutting his nails and he even had a go at it by himself.
Nipper Clipper comes with the free App Timmy Tickle Baby, the world’s first nail clipper distraction app, which helps distract babies while cutting their nails. Timmy is a colourful animated octopus who engages children by pretending to be different fruit and characters. The app has three different control options that are designed to suit babies of different ages so the experience can adapt as they grow.
Nipper Clipper also comes with a curved S-file baby which gently smoothes baby nails after clipping. The curved baby nail file easily follows the natural shape of baby’s nails and it is designed to soften sharp edges. Little man enjoyed having his own nail file and it was easy and straightforward to file down his nails.
Nipper Clipper is a great invention, I wish it was out a few years ago when little man was a baby. We will keep it in mind for our next one!
