Keeks, the family run business which specialises in adaptive footwear and clothing, is now expanding their business by launching the award winning Mum2Mum baby & bib range in Ireland at Cork’s Marina Market this weekend.
Rob and April Mullen founded Keeks in late 2021 after stumbling across BILLY Footwear for their son Kian, and subsequently being approved as their Irish retailer. Billy footwear are a stylish adapted footwear brand designed for people with limited mobility or to fit over Orthotics. After launching Keeks last year, Rob and April set a goal to source a wider range of products to help make life easier for parents. Their first year has seen them add over ten new brands from around the globe and has far exceeded what they could have imagined when starting out.
April explains, “the quality of the Mum2Mum products are exceptional. So rather than continue to advertise the Mum2Mum range, we felt that the best way for people to appreciate the quality is to come and check them out for themselves.”
Rob added, “we started our business primarily to focus on adaptive footwear based on the needs of our eldest son who is special needs. We have been looking to expand our customer base for a while now, and when Mum2Mum offered us the opportunity to bring the Baby & Bib line to Ireland, we jumped at the chance. We have already had a lot of succuss with the Mum2Mum PLUS size bibs, so we knew the quality would be unrivalled.”
Mum2Mum are a NZ based company who manufacture award-winning baby andtoddler products. Mum 2 Mum was started back in 2004 by young mums dealing withdribbly babies, reflux, eczema… you name it. Their signature product is the WonderBib which have been a hit in the US, Australia, Japan and UK to name a few.
The Mum2Mum line will include baby & toddler bibs, swaddles, change mats, burp clothes, hooded towels and kiddie towels. Not forgetting the company origins, Keeks will also be stocking a selection of their adaptive and sensory apparel, along with wheelchair and buggy accessories.
Keeks will be welcoming anyone interested to their pop-up shop in Cork’s Marina Market on March 25th and 26th of March. With endless options for coffee and lunch, Cork’s Marina Market is plenty of fun for parents too, so it’s the ideal venue for a family day out.
