Skip Hop: Innovation in Parenting Products
Skip Hop is a small business based in New York City that has been gaining recognition for its unique parenting products that are safe, durable and practical. Established by new parents Ellen and Michael Diamant in 2003, Skip Hop began when the couple could not find a suitable diaper bag, prompting them to create their own. This idea soon led to Skip Hop, and ten years into the business, the brand has reached global attention, with international retailers selling their products.
Skip Hop carries products for playtime, bath time, mealtime, parents on the go, nurseries and active children. The company follows the strictest standards in manufacturing and tests each product extensively, making sure that everything they sell is safe for babies and children. Skip Hop also practices philanthropy, contributing to the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, Baby Buggy and the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund in an effort to give back to children and families in need.
