Skip Hop Holiday Preview
Skip Hop is a fun and reliable name in baby and toddler gear, and for good reason. Their varied range of products are designed to look cute, last a long time all while making parents’ lives easier and their new additions for the holidays are no exception. I had a chance to visit Skip Hop headquarters and I am so excited to share all the great new products they have added to their collection.
One of the greatest additions to the Skip Hop holiday collection is the Zoojamas set for big kids (pictured above, bottom). The adorable Zoojamas sets are made from cuddly 100% cotton and come in Owl, Butterfly, Bee, Monkey and Dog. These fun characters done in brightly colored appliques will have your little one begging for pajama time. The Zoojamas sets retails for $25.
Another great item in the Skip Hop wearables collection is all of the adorable body suits and baby pants (picture above, top). There are so many cute designs in fabulously soft fabric. Best of all, Skip Hop is making your gift giving easier with their 4-piece Welcome Home Set. The Welcome Home Set includes a onesie, cardigan, pants and hat all in fun coordinating prints to make sure baby has the essentials while still looking fantastic. The 4-piece Welcome Home Set retails for $35.
Another great new addition to the Skip Hop lineup is their new Zoo Light Up Surfers bath toys (pictured above, right). From the moment I tossed them into the tub, these became a fast favorite with my son and it’s easy to see why. The owl and bee bath toys float on their surfboard and light up when they make contact with water. My son loves to take them off and light them up and practice balancing them back in their grooves on the surfboard and when we go away on trips, this is the only tub toy I need to pack to guarantee happy bath times away from home. In their classic line Skip Hop also has the Whale Tub Stopper (pictured above, left). This may seem like a simple product but if your tub is anything like mine, the stopper is a pain to deal with and I spent as much time preparing the bath as bathing my son. The simple design and secure suction cup make it easy to use and very effective. Thanks to the Skip Hop Zoo Light Up Surfers and Whale Tub Stopper bath time is as much fun for me as it is for my little guy.
Not only does Skip Hop have a lot of fantastic new gear for the holiday season, but they have some other great gear in their product lineup that is as fabulous to look at as it is to use.
I am a big fan of the Skip Hop Forma Backpack Diaper Bag, (pictured above). For me, one of the most challenging things about traveling with a toddler is making sure you have all the important snacks, toys and diaper gear you will need when out and about while balancing a bulky diaper bag and chasing after a toddler. Enter the Skip Hop Forma Backpack Diaper Bag to solve all of you diaper bag needs. The Forma Diaper Bag has a stylish quilted fabric design and the extra wide opening means that it’s a snap to find everything in your diaper bag at a glance. Add to that insulated side pockets and a front compartment with two multi purpose packing cubes and an internal changing pad pocket that serves double duty as a laptop pocket and you have the perfect diaper bag for day to day and especially for travel. Best of all, the backpack design allows for hand-free transport of all your toddler essentials while your hands stay free to chase your toddler. The Skip Hop Forma Backpack Diaper Bag comes in black and peacock and retails for $70.00.
Another great item from Skip Hop’s regular collection is the Tuck-Away Zoo Bibs (pictured above) from the Zoo Animals series which includes plates, silverware, lunch boxed, backpacks and more. These bibs are lightweight and water resistant and have a large catch-all pocket to capture stray food and keep your toddler clean. I love the large size on the bib that along with the catch-all pocket keep my toddler’s whole outfit clean as he explores the messy mealtimes that come from wanting to feed himself and the clever tuck-away pouch makes it easy for me to keep a bib in the diaper bag and the lunchbox for unexpected snack times when we’re out and about. The Skip Hop Tuck-Away Zoo bibs come in 14 adorable animal designs (a selection pictured above) and retails for $8.00.
