Fashionable and durable baby goods | Skip Hop Zoo Collection Review X Bloom & Grow

I was always envious as a child how other children get to own a cute set of paraphernalia. However, in retrospect, most of these were only pretty and expensive yet mostly unpractical. Often found on the pristine display shelf in the departmental store. And left to collect dust after a few uses.

However, I'm proud to let everyone know that we have recently acquired a whole set of Skip Hop zoo paraphernalia from Bloom& Grow.

Skip Hop comes all the way from New York City to Malaysia bringing joy with the philosophy of "Must-Haves Made Better". Founded by parents Michael and Ellen Diamant in 2003, they want stylish yet functional baby goods suitable for the busy metropolitan life, for parents who are always on the go.

The Skip Hop Zoo Collection offers a few cute animals to choose from-- llama, leopard, giraffe, bat, fox and unicorn. All Skip Hop products meet or exceed ASTM and applicable safety standards. And the food wares are dishwasher safe, BPA-free, Phthalate-free and PVC-free.

Baby Bing happily chose llama as his 3years old birthday present. Let me introduce the products one by one.

What does Dr Yingzangel think?

I love how matching the set is. Besides that the products are value for money. The bags are durable and made with lasting materials. The size is just nice for young children going to kindergarten. The lunchies can easily keep food cold for several hours so no more worries about serving Bing's favorite chocolate milk cold and fresh just the way he prefers it.

The dining wares are heavy enough to help the young ones eat without spilling. The cutleries are deliberately chunky so that it's much easier to hold on to. Melamine is generally safe but it should not be heated in a microwave oven. And the straw bottle is easy to diassemble to allow thorough cleaning. Otherwise it can collect mould and yucky dirt! 12oz also holds a decent amount of water to last for half a day.
