Win a prize bundle from MAM UK!

The lucky winner is Laura Hare!

Congrats Laura! Please email me at or pm me on facebook (Jennifer Dixon) with your address details and I'll pass them on to MAM UK!

MAM, like all great success stories, started off with a vision. Throughout the mid 1970’s, discerning parents were often forced to compromise between safety and style when purchasing products for their children. Peter Röhrig, MAM Founder and a qualified plastics engineer who has a modern understanding of the market, revolutionized the industry by developing safe, yet stylish baby products that include medical benefits not found in competing brands. Upon MAM’s inception, Peter Röhrig, along with his team of medical experts and studio designers, worked hard to develop a pacifier that raised standards for both design and functionality. The first MAM pacifier was sold in 1976 and has gradually evolved into the world's leading authority on the design of baby products.

Since 1976, MAM's working relationship with designers, technology specialists and its medical and scientific expert partners regularly yields ground-breaking design and material solutions. Today, more than forty million MAM baby products are sold every year making the Austrian company the world’s leading designer brand in the industry.
