Skip Hop’s Sustainable Innovations

Products That Grow with a Child
Skip Hop is committed to designing innovative products consistent with its Must Haves Made Better® mission. We feel it’s a privilege to have parents bring our products into their home and trust us to entertain, challenge, and help develop their child’s skills. We also want to make parents’ lives easier with products that have a longer lifespan and grow with their child. Our “grow with me” designs extend a product’s life cycle, reducing the need for multiple items and creating less waste.

Our play gyms are tested under toy testing standards to ensure they’re free from harmful substances. In 2023, we are adopting the even more stringent OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 certification for our play gyms, which provides strict criteria that exceed national and international requirements.

Oceanworks® Partnership
We are proud to partner with Oceanworks®, the leading source for recovered ocean-bound plastics, providing the world’s most robust plastic action platform. Our partnership helped us create a new version of our Skip Hop Moby Bath Bundle made from 70% recycled plastic. The bundle, which launched on Earth Day 2023, includes our Moby Bath Rinser, Moby Stowaway Bath Toy Bucker, and a special version of our brand-new Sort & Stack Boat. The bundle is packaged in a giftable 100% recycled box, without plastic packaging materials.

Recycled Diaper Bag Packaging
We are in the process of replacing all hangtags and polybags used on our Diaper Bags, On-the-Go, and Kids Bags categories with 100% recycled materials. We anticipate this effort will impact 112 product types in 2023, and we plan to continue this practice on all new launches in these categories. We are also evaluating the possibility of replacing our diaper bag liners with recycled materials.
Skip Hop Innovation Awards
Skip Hop is an award-winning brand, and many of these recognitions relate to product versatility or longevity. Among the recent awards we have won:
The Bump Best of Baby Awards 2022
Good Housekeeping Best Toy Awards 2022
