AdventureBelt-6A (1)A Scots mum has just won a national award for innovation.

More 2 Explore founder Lucy Bostock, who designed the Adventure Belt, scooped the Baby Product Association Innovation Award yesterday.

The mum of two invented the Belt-to-Belt system to keep children safe when families are out and about.

At the awards ceremony, Lucy said: “I’m delighted and honoured to be have won this amazing award. I just want mums to have peace of mind when they are out with their children. The Adventure Belt means you can stay physically connected to your kids in busy situations.”

The Adventure Belt is perfect for kids up to six years of age. Think fireworks’ displays. Airports. Festivals. And shopping.

lucyLucy, from Edinburgh, 43, said: “How many of us have lost sight of our little ones for just a second and have momentarily ‘lost’ them in a crowd?

“I did. I got separated from my youngest son Charlie when we were at Legoland – and I couldn’t find him for 10 minutes. Those minutes were the longest in my life. I found him playing but the point was, we were separated by the crowds.

“That’s why I have come up with the Belt-to-Belt system because it connects you to your child – when they are too big for reins or a pushchair.

“The belt is long enough to give your little one room to move around, but at the same time gives you piece of mind. It’s easy to connect and disconnect so it’s a win/win.”
