The ecoBaby Company is proud to introduce a first for South Africa.
Fresh from the Ouma-Powered baby brand - Y'Omi - we bring you - THE SQUIRCLE!
When the Ouma's behind Y'Omi were asked: "Is it a square, or is it a circle?" they confidently replied "No, its a Squircle!"
And ever since then, the Squircle has captured a special place in the heart of babies everywhere.
Perfect as decoration in a Nursery, or as a way to entertain baby by shaking the bell. The Squircles actual function is to help babies learn to crawl. Round balls roll away from a crawling baby as they push it too far in front of themselves. A Squircles unique shape means it can be rolled or pushed by baby but will never roll too far away.
Hand-knitted with 100% premium cotton and ranging in colour from Autumn shades to Primary Hues. These cube like stuffed balls are each one unique but all include a bell inside their centre. That means don't be surprised if the Squircle is commandeered by Dad, who will enjoy them as a one-of-a-kind stress-ball.
Each Squircle contains an inner-dress lining, to prevent the stuffing from protruding through the knitting.

The Y'Omi brand is the brainchild of perennial businesswomen - Yvon Hunter - who a pre-octogenarian herself knows all about the impressive processing power of an Ouma in a rocking chair.
Y'Omi creates gorgeous classic baby products made by loving, caring and experienced hands - that know how to warm a little ones heart.
All Y’Omi products are made in limited quantities and each one carries a unique code. A code that denotes the Initials of the Ouma who hand-crafted that specific product and the date of their birth. Ensuring each Y'omi product comes infused with a vibrant and rich story, A story that in turn reignites a family heirloom for every new generation.
Y’Omi products are hand-knitted, hand-quilted or hand-sewn, likely in front of an episode of the Bold and the Beautiful. The ouma’s behind Y’Omi have, between them, thousands of years of knitting experience. They might look sweet and slow, but hand them a pair of knitting needles and stand back – because they wield their tools like ninja masters. Often finishing a row, whilst sleeping! One ouma was even caught attempting a reverse cross-stitch, whilst deeply engrossed in a Romance Novel.
The ouma's at Y'omi are pleasant and friendly company but some do have a dark side. Once I foolishly asked Ouma Magdalien for her secret peanut butter biscuit recipe and seconds later a spatula whizzed past my left ear. Another time I commented how old people shouldn’t be allowed to drive, only to have Granny Enid impale my foot with the bottom of her walker.
But whatever quirks and strange habits these golden oldies have, boy do they know how to create something with the warmth and love only ‘Ouma Magic’ can deliver.
Y'Omi is true hand-crafted, lovingly-nurtured and expertly enhanced baby products - FROM Ouma's FOR Babba's.
