As a family run company our values are about making sure our parental customers and our REAL customers - your babies - get the best possible service at the best possible price.
We aim to manufacture all our products to minimise their environmental impact and to use natural materials wherever possible. Our babies are our future and we want to protect that future, as far as we can, to enable them to thrive.
Designing hammocks since 1989
The Amby Baby Hammock was an invention of necessity. It was created by Ambrose Hooi in Australia in the late eighties as a measure to help his daughter who had become an unsettled, restless and colicky baby at 4 weeks of age. This led Ambrose to design a rudimentary hammock that immediately helped Ying-Li to sleep and better deal with her colic. (Learn more about the story at amby.com.au). This has subsequently been the experience of thousands of parents and babies who have moved across to using a hammock rather than a traditional cot.
Since then, many improvements have been made leading to the launch of the Amby Air Baby Hammock that is made of high quality materials; has a contemporary design and meets the highest safety standards.
At Amby Europe we also work hard to maintain our customers' loyalty and the unrivalled reputation of our products. We welcome customer feedback and are always open to exploring new ways in which we can help parents and babies. (Please send comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.)
Our warehouse is in Milton Keynes and our main office is in Loughborough although we also have a presence in the south east of England. (See our contact page for addresses and the best way to communicate with us.)
Awards, Tests & Standards
Amby Baby Hammocks was the original hammock on the market and the most stringently tested since it was first designed in 1989.
The brand new design - the Amby Air - has been certified by a leading global laboratory to all applicable sections of the latest European and British Standard BS EN1130. (Safety Test Number SSHG1304012503IP, 13 May 2013.)
Amby, as the market leader in baby hammocks, has also been working closely with Standards Australia since 2012 to achieve a world class baby hammock - the Amby Air - that was launched in 2013.
Reassuringly, Amby's high quality mattress is free from harmful fire retardants and passes the proposed Standards Australia and Standards New Zealand tests which assesses the firmness of baby bed mattresses.
