Skip Hop: Always a Leap Ahead (Expectant Mom Gift Guide)
I’m currently pregnant with twins and have a four-year-old daughter, so I know better than anyone that mom’s want to know what are the must have products for their baby. From browsing stores to checking out what other mom’s are using, moms-to-be are always on the lookout! Chances are you have come across a mom who loves Skip Hop, a leader in developing quality products for babies and young children.
If you’ve never heard of Skip Hop before, you’re missing out! From designer diaper bags to bedtime goodies, Skip Hop has it all! Skip Hop was started in 2003 by Ellen and Michael Diamant. They desired a product for their baby that they couldn’t find, so they invented their own! From their they kept designing and the brand is now global brand recognized by parens for their high quality baby products.
When buying a Skip Hop creation, you truly feel that no detail was overlooked, nothing was left to chance and that the designers put countless hours into making it the best product. For that reason alone, Skip Hop products should be on every mom’s registry list! This year Celeb Baby Laundry is featuring three products from the company in our Gift Guide for Expectant Moms.
While attending ABC Kids Expo in Las Vegas, I was excited to learn that Skip Hop created a new line of layette outfits for boys and girls. Pictured above is one of my favorite designs from the collection, the adorable POP PRINTS 3-piece baby gift set. What baby girl wouldn’t look darling going home in this outfit? It’s made with quality, beautiful colors, and the price is just right. Being pregnant with twins, I have a few of the outfits on my registry list at the moment!
My daughter loved activity gyms when she was a baby. There are so many out there, but I have yet to find one as cool as the new Skip Hop Amazing Arch Activity. This gym seriously puts old activity gyms to shame. While previewing the activity gym at the Skip Hop booth at ABC Kids Expo, I was immediately drawn to its bright and vibrant colors. The gym is bursting with dynamic friends, including a hototing owl, a musical hedgehog, and a dancing fox. With these friends babies can enjoy developmental activities – activated danceing fox, pull-string peekaboo owl that hoots, handing hedgehog musical teether and more.
The most revolutionary thing about the gym is that you can slip your phone in the parent pocket to record those special milestones or let grandma observe the action form afar. Baby will think he’s looking into a mirror and not your camera, so his movements will be natural. I also love the idea of playing songs to entertain baby.
One thing you learn as a first time mom, is that mess accumulates in about two seconds when you have children. In order to keep you’re house looking somewhat presentable and to stop yourself from tripping on a toy, you need somewhere to store stuff fast. With the Skip Hop Zoo Large Bin you can go from storing diapers and wipes to storing those pesky toys on the floor quickly. At four year’s old, my daughter loves to use the easy grip handles to help clean up her own toys. The designs are fun and the bin even fits in most cube shelves.
Skip Hop creates a whole variety of other children products for mealtime, playtime, bath time and school. Head on over to Skip Hop website to check out all the different products available for direct purchase. You can also find the brand at local retailers or online at buybuyBaby, Amazon, and PishPosh Baby.
