"Earlier this winter, my wife and I took our girls, 4 and 1 to lunch at a shawarma place called Golan Heights in Washington Heights. We had our trusted Skip Hop bag for our toddler. After lunch we went to a nearby playground, and then back to the restaurant as the older girl needed to use the bathroom. Somehow in all the confusion, we noticed later in the day that our Skip Hop bag had disappeared. Thinking it was left at the playground, we assumed that it was long gone. I thought of dropping by or calling the restaurant, but as time passed I assumed that it would be less and less likely to be found.
About a month later, we found ourselves in Washington Heights one evening to run an errand. Since I hadn't eaten and was in the mood for shawarma, I pulled the car in front of Golan Heights while my wife went in. I told her to ask for the Skip Hop bag since we had nothing to lose. A few minutes later, she came out with the bag, and I could hardly believe it! Apparently, the front window of the store was a collection area for forgotten backpacks and other types of bags as there are a lot of students in that area. The Skip Hop bag had been there the whole time! It was such a treat to get it back as we had been improvising tote bags and plastic bags to use as diaper bags ... and of course had been forgetting and losing those as well. Now that we are reunited with our Skip Hop, we are putting it to good use, and keeping very close track of it."
