Unauthorized Retailers & Counterfeits
Skip Hop’s iconic and innovative designs have become a target for counterfeit manufacturers. While not always easy to detect, these products are made with inferior and potentially dangerous materials. We take this issue very seriously and are working to remove fake Skip Hop products from the market.
Amazon is an authorized Skip Hop retailer, but many "Third-Party Marketplace" sellers are not (even when the sale is fulfilled by Amazon). "Third-Party Marketplace" sellers have been known to sell counterfeit products and are not covered under our warranty.
To be confident that you are always buying authentic Skip Hop products, we urge you to buy from an authorized Retailer. Please use our Store Locator to find a retailer near you. We also suggest confirming that Amazon is the actual seller when shopping on Amazon.com and staying away from deals that sound "too good to be true."
Skip Hop is committed to protecting our consumers--if you run across a suspect site, or feel you've been the victim of a counterfeit site, please email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
