More Baby Products Bought!

Picture of Angelcare Video with Sound and Movement Baby MonitorMy husband has ordered the Angelcare Video with Movement and Sound AC1100 baby monitor from Amazon (£219.99) and I have ordered 3 organic fitted cot bed sheets!

I spent ages on the internet trying to find out where Angelcare manufacture their monitors but without finding out the answer. I did find out they are a Canadian company but I suspect they manufacture in the far east. I guess we’ll see when the baby monitor arrives as where it’s made it should be stated on the packaging.

My husband has literally just walked in while I am writing this post with the Amazon box containing the baby monitor! We both guessed it would be made in Japan or Korea but surprise, surprise it’s made in China! I’m sorry to say but we are going to keep it! We think it’s the best baby monitor to buy and we don’t want to compromise on this for our daughter seeing as she is going straight into the nursery from day 1!

They have been making sheets since 1950 and have a very high standard of production practices and careful sourcing of UK or Fair Trade materials.

They buy their organic cotton from a Swiss company called Remei who have formed a partnership with growers in various developing countries with the express aim of handing over the company to the workers. The yarn is then delivered to knitters in Leicester (a small family company) and then dyed in Leicester before they collect the fabric to their workshop. The elastic edging comes from a company in Nottingham and the sewing threads from a manufacturer in Leicester.

I purchased 3 DK Glovesheets organic fitted cot bed sheets from Baby Mattresses (£33 + pp).

So 1 for the UK and 1 for China!

  1. Hi there,

    We understand that there is an issue trying to find Baby Monitors that are made in the UK, if fact trying to find anything that is made in the UK nowadays is nigh on impossible. We have also searched and we believe that Tommee Tippee is made in the UK, in fact the north west of England.

  2. Hi Tanya

    Thanks for your comments. I agree it is very difficult to find products made in the UK and it takes a lot of time and effort to find them.

    I’ve checked out Tommee Tippee monitors and unfortunately the makers, Mayborn Group, although their headquarters are in Northumberland (UK), have their main manufacturing plant in China (http://www.mayborngroup.com/about-us).

    So I don’t think this is an option either!
