So what is it for..
In Dutch we call it 'knuffeldoekje'. It is a piece of soft cloth, not only practical for attaching a teat but more important, it plays an important role in the development of your child's social skills too. It's their first experience of having a friend, a buddy.
Story behind the product: #FriendshipMatters
Have you ever came across something that tickle your inner child and made you wish you had it when you was little? Well, you’ve found one here right in front of you :)
A hektik buddy is a baby first experience of having a friend, someone who is there for you.. no matter being burped, pinched, bitten, dragged over the floor or drooled all over.. a buddy stays. And that’s about it in essence: “yep, I like this one”, and you just do stuff with them. Cute cuddly buddy Brom the Bear. With his company you will never feel lonely :) Sometimes even to last forever. Hektik wishes you all to have buddies, the more the merrier… So pass it on!
By the way: the cute Indy cuddling with Brom the Bear buddy is the baby girl you see in the first photo - yes, they're still best friends :) Both photo were made by her awesome mother @eev

We can't start early enough to learn what friendship is. So we have created cuddle clothes, the hektik buddies for the newborns. A first friend, someone who is there for you.....no matter being burped, pinched, bitten, dragged over the floor or drooled all over..... a buddy stays.
Later on we added other products to our collection such as rattles and baby socks. All of them are little gifts for special moments.
Our products are being handmade together with the crafts-men and women at the sheltered social workplace in Rotterdam.
