The Skip Hop Story

    About Us

    At Skip Hop, we re-think, re-energize and re-engineer products to infuse joy. Endlessly curious, we're constantly questioning functionality, form and design. As a global lifestyle brand, our core philosophy begins and ends with "Must-Haves Made Better" — an unwavering passion for well-curated, smartly designed essentials for parents, babies and toddlers.

    It all started with
    a diaper bag

    In 2003, new parents Michael and Ellen Diamant realized that their diaper bag options were limited. Surrounded by pink and blue baby bags, Ellen sketched a bag that was fashion-savvy and super functional—particularly for the on-the-go city life they led. The Duo Diaper Bag was born and they’ve never looked back.

    A Crazy Kind
    of Passion

    Neither Ellen nor Michael come from the baby industry. Ellen’s passion for product innovation and her background as an art director in publishing and luxury goods marketing & branding provides that special Skip Hop vision. After 15 years as a tech entrepreneur, Michael’s drive to break new ground opens new opportunities constantly. It’s the secret sauce that defines Skip Hop—the balancing of modern design and true functionality.

It’s what we do—and we welcome fresh perspectives that stretch and challenge us to be better and do better for our consumers and their little ones!

    Skip Hop Giving Back

    Our commitment to
    safety and giving back

    Parenting is a labor of love—and at Skip Hop, we are committed to making this as easy and fun as possible. This starts with our deep-seated commitment to safety and quality. Our products go through rigorous testing to take the worry out of parents’ decision making process. And this ends with us giving back through charities such as Good+ Foundation and the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund who help disadvantaged families get the things they need to be the best parents they can be. We are honored to partner with such people and organizations.
