Because every day, we're working hard to understand the many ways that new parents adjust to their lives, and this is where we can share with you what we learn. That and other stuff that strikes our fancy!

If you've got a little one running around the house, chances are you'll be visiting a zoo, aquarium or museum sometime in the near future. What better place to practice "What does the monkey say?", right? In between gawking at the zebras and cooing over the baby penguins, look for Skip Hop wares scattering the gift shop's of these locations around the country—with more on the way. A Zoo Pack just might be the perfect souvenir of your time spent with the lions, tigers and bears!

Celeb mamas are just like us, trying to find the best way to tote around the many necessities of a parent on-the-go. So lilsugar rounded up the stars' fave diaper bags, from Prada to Kipling. We were super excited to be included for our collaboration with Jonathan Adler, spotted most recently on Selma Blair. Plus, we're the most affordable of the bunch—which is great when you can't, ya know, drop $1000 on some Gucci. (Image via lilsugar)
Harrod's in London is essentially the epitome of chic: Designer wares, oodles of expensive goodies, and now, our own Skip Hop Zoo Packs! If Mr. Owl doesn't scream "sophistication", we don't know what does. We can only imagine the fun the Zoo Crew is having causing trouble with Hermoine's Wand and rebel-rousing with Paddington. We're thrilled to be a part of such an iconic brand. If you happen to jump across the pond anytime soon, be sure to stop in and say hello to Monkey, Zebra and the rest of our pals!
Trust us, our new Alphabet Zoo toy line is going quick—we're already sold out online! (Don't worry—we'll be restocking soon.) In the meantime, you've got a shot to win an Alphabet Zoo Activity Gym from our pals over at BabyCenter. All you have to do is leave a comment on the post letting everyone know why you think it's the grooviest gym of them all. It's as easy as A-B-C.
But don't wait: your chance at snagging the prize ends at midnight this coming Wednesday, March 14th. Good luck!
Skip Hop went West Coast last week to soak up some California sun and attend the Big City Moms Biggest Baby Shower. Their first-ever LA Baby Shower was a hit and Skip Hop was there to meet and greet the new and expectant mamas. There was something for everyone from educational seminars to the latest in gear and CELEBS! Each family walked away with some amazing swag, including goodies from Skip Hop!
The next Baby Shower will be in Miami on April 2. Click here for more details.
It's not the first time Selma Blair has been caught on camera toting around a Skip Hop product (after all, what hip mama can resist the allure of Mr. Jonathan Adler?). But we were over the moon to see the actress and her babe with another favorite of ours in tow—a Little Birdie Stroller Toy! Keep those streets of Tinseltown playfully-adorned, Selma. And don't forget to snag your own Treetop Friend before you hit the road.
