Innovative Frog BracKit invention to star on BBC Two’s Britain’s Next Big Thing PDF Print E-mail

Wednesday, 27 April 2011 19:18

The award-winning, stylish, eco-friendly Frog BracKit invention, created by single mum Debbie Evershed from South London, that turns small gardens and balconies into stunning spaces to attract birds and wildlife, is to feature from tonight in the brand new TV series - Britain’s Next Big Thing on BBC Two.

Presented by Dragons’ Den star Theo Paphitis, the 7 x 60-minute series (http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b010hgdt), which is currently airing Tuesdays at 8pm, features the retail industry’s power-brokers - such as Habitat, Liberty and Boots - who are looking to find the illusive next big thing in retail.

Debbie’s Frog BracKit, an award winner at the British Invention of the Year Awards 2008, proves to be a big hit with Habitat - securing a substantial order - and as a result, is now available through Habitat’s retail outlets across the UK as well as its online store.

For fledgling designers, this is a chance in a lifetime and one that Debbie Evershed is eager to grab hold of with both hands.  The Frog BracKit is multi-purpose bracket - shaped like a frog - can be attached to any surface with a range of different length bars attached, fanning out in an array enabling hanging baskets, birdfeeders, bird baths and solar lights to be displayed together creating a garden feature that’s ideal for small spaces.

Over six months, Dragon, retailer, entrepreneur and business star, Theo Paphitis follows both buyers and suppliers, including Debbie, as they experience the highs and lows of bringing a product to market – from initial pitch to shop shelf – and whilst many won’t make the grade, for a lucky few it will be a life-changing experience.

Talking about the series, Theo Paphitis comments: “In these financial times, it is important for us to support fledgling suppliers. The open days held by Liberty, Boots and Habitat are a fantastic opportunity for the untried, hopeful buyers to meet the suppliers.  It really is an opportunity of a lifetime. This is a real fast track into retail.”

Debbie Evershed and her Frog BracKit invention

Debbie, who in 1998, whilst setting up a reclaimed wood recycling centre and also looking after her 10 month old daughter, commented on the inspiration for the Frog BracKit: "To overcome the hazards of working with a baby, I devised a portable mechanism to support a baby bouncer with toys attached. The device proved so effective, and loved by the baby, that I decided to adapt it to be enjoyed anywhere, and expanded it to suspend plants and garden tools and equipment.”

Since then, the Frog BracKit has been developed into an easy to install kit, designed to allow gardeners (and non-gardeners) to turn lifeless walls and surfaces alive giving them a focus and turning them into a feature. It can also be used for practical purposes such as keeping gardening equipment tidy, such as hose pipes, garden spades, forks or even bicycles. It can support up to 70kg in weight and is made out of recycled aluminium.

A range of Frog BracKits is available via Habitat’s retail outlets and online store (http://www.habitat.co.uk – just search for Frog It) priced from £15.00 plus delivery. Further information about the Frog BracKit can also be found at http://frogbrackit.com/.
