Trimming tiny nails can be tricky.
The Nipper Clipper helps in three ways: the safety spy hole lets you see exactly what you’re cutting, whilst our app Timmy Tickle Baby helps distract active babies. Finally, the curved S-file baby gently smoothes baby nails after clipping.
To launch the Nipper Clipper, we created our first Pop Up Shop in Neal's Yard, Covent Garden. Press photographers, journalists, Mummy bloggers and even Tom's 12-day old son helped showcase the new product.
“When I found out I was due to become a Dad, I started thinking about how to make clipping baby nails easier. My latest invention, the Nipper Clipper is the world's first baby nail clipper with a safety spy hole, baby nail file and distraction app that allows parents to trim nails safely and correctly. I hope the Nipper Clipper will take the stress out of cutting your baby's nails and make it a fun experience for parents and little nippers.” Tom Pellereau
“I think the Nipper Clipper is an essential item for parents and it is lovely to see a new product
on the shelves that solves a worrying time for new parents.”

Cutting baby's nails is often a daunting and traumatic experience which can result in injuries to both baby and parent. The scissor-like action of the Nipper Clipper is smooth and almost silent, and the innovative safety spy hole allows parents to see exactly what they are cutting - while using a clipper that is sharp enough to trim soft baby nails. Finally the curved S-file baby is shaped like the adult nail S-file, and makes smoothing any sharp edges easy.
“This is the first time I’ve cut her [5 month old baby] nails without using my mouth. It’s a bit of a revelation!”

"As any parent will know, keeping babies still whilst cutting their nails is a struggle. To help, I teamed up with a my sister's company, Nimblebean, to create the first nail clipper distraction app. Timmy Tickle Baby can be downloaded for free on Apple devices and features their playful octopus, Timmy Tickle, who changes colour and costume to entertain and distract attention from nail clipping. We hope you enjoy it!" Tom Pellereau
“...the real innovation is the Timmy Tickle Baby app – a sensory programme designed to distract
the baby while you clip their little claws. You have to hand it to Tom; this is a clever idea."

Timmy Tickle Baby has three different control options that are designed to suit babies of different ages so the experience can adapt as they grow. Newborn babies will enjoy the ‘Auto Control’, which plays animations of Timmy pretending to be different fruit and characters. As babies start to vocalise, ‘Sound Control’ is designed to engage them as they make sounds of their own. Finally the ‘Voice Control’ setting is designed to recognise the parent's voice so they can control the app remotely.
“I’ve NEVER been able to cut his toenails before. But he’s so calm!”

"I immediately loved the smooth shape and design of the clipper, and the tiny s-file looked smart too. After bath time link to bath time review please), we set to trimming the nails. The ‘window’ in the top to allow you to see what you were trimming was great. I could see how near I was to Jacks skin, and only clip the nail without fear of cutting it too short. It was such a smooth clip too, which seems a very strange thing to say, but sometimes, when using clippers, they can drag or pull, but these didn’t. They are smooth and sharp, and made trimming completely effortless; we were onto baby small before he even knew it!
Priced at £9.99 its very good value for money, a well thought through product and one that I will be recommending to all my mummy friends."

The S-Clipper is the only nail clipper with curved blades, which slice rather than chop nails so you can trim without the ping.
Trim without the ping at home or away with the handy travel sized S-Clipper mini.
NEW! The S-Ped is a curved foot file and exfoliator, which gently removes hard skin from your feet for happy heels and smooth soles.
The Nailcare Collection contains the S-file, S-buffer and Emergency File for perfect nails at home and on the go.
