Coming Soon: What’s New from Skip Hop at ABC Kids Expo 2014

My visit with Skip Hop is always a highlight of my trip to the ABC Kids Expo.

This year, the most exciting new debut from Skip Hop is their Zoo Pals Rain Gear.  With matching umbrellas ($15) and raincoats ($30), your toddlers can take their favorite zoo pal even further. Monkey, Ladybug and Owl lovers are in luck this time around.

Skip Hop’s Playspot playmat is reaching a new level of style and sophistication with this Triangle Tiles set. With the same cushy comfort for playtime, the zig zag design blends into your home’s decor.

A few fun new toys are being added to Skip Hop’s line like the Roll-Around Rattles, Click Clack Hedgehog and Bandana Buddies.

The Zoo Line is also expanding its mealtime accessories with a 4-piece Zoo Lunch Kit, Insulated Food Jar, and Zoo Snack Cup. They are all ridiculously cute.

These Zoo Packs and Lunchies will be limited editions for the holidays, so if you love them, please snatch them up asap. I’m really digging the Polar Bear.

The Moby bath range now has a tub stopper. It’s a very comprehensive set now!

The owl nightlight and projecting mobile are on their way. These are actually really stylish little electronic accessories and I think they’ll be big hits.

Finally, for it’s 10 year anniversary, Skip Hop’s Duo Signature diaper bag is relaunching with new and improved features like tote handles and a smart phone pocket. Just think, we didn’t have smart phones 10 years ago!

The Special Edition Duos are also really cute bags.

Great job, Skip Hop (and thanks for the cupcake)!

Mobiles from Zid Zid Kids

Zid Zid Kids has introduced their Shadow Animal Mobile Collection.  These are cut by hand and made out of recycled paper, cardboard and faux-leather details.


There’s an Elephant, Butterfly, Bird, Peacock, Giraffe and Camel. $36 each

More Mobiles from Trendy Peas

Trendy Peas has added a few more mobiles to their current collection of laser cut acrylic designs.

The Airplane and Clouds Mobile, the Birds on Branches, Bus Car Bike, and Cloud and Rain Drops Mobiles are all $39.  There are three other mobiles currently from Trendy Peas– the Deer Fox Bunny, the Flock of Birds and Stacked Owls.

As far as themes and subject matter go, I really love the Airplane and Clouds Mobile and the Bus Car Bike Mobile because there isn’t anything simple and modern to rival them.  We’ve got owls and birds and other animals, but these really clean white transportation themed mobiles are something different to keep in mind.

Leather Triangle Mobiles

Continuing our triangle theme for the year, I present these Leather Triangle Mobiles from The Alison Show.  These modern mobiles are available in four colorways for $65 each.

She has a really cool blog too!

I wish I had more time to tackle all the posts my blog reader these days.  Hope BuyModernBaby made it into your reader!  If not, you can now sign up for our weekly(ish) newsletter and stay up to date.

Mobiles from Argington (and some new bedding)

Argington, an Eco-friendly and affordable modern baby furniture brand, has recently debuted a versatile pair of mobiles that would perfectly accessorize any modern nursery.

The Birds of a Feather and 5 Little Monkeys mobiles are made of laser cut walnut plywood and retail for $65 and $55 respectively.

Notice the new bedding above as well.  There are a few new Bam Organic bedding pieces from Argington.  The orange in the photos is their Plaid pattern and there are lots of other patterns that can be used to mix and match.

You can see the Birds of a Feather mobile above as well as the Nest bedding pattern.  They’ve got some really beautiful options and they’re available for twin beds too!
