    Leaning on her experience with 3D animation, graphic design and launching into the world of objective-c programming, Harriet teased an orange octopus from her imagination and has been crafting her app ever since.

  • In 2013 she collaborated with her The Apprentice winning brother Tom Pellereau, to create a Timmy Tickle distraction app to accompany his innovative baby nail clipper, The Nipper Clipper.

    The Nipper Clipper has a handy safety spy hole that lets you see exactly what you’re cutting, whilst the app Timmy Tickle Baby helps distract active babies. Finally, the curved S-file baby gently smoothes baby nails after clipping.
