skipping hippos. GIVEAWAY!



As January comes to a close I find myself longing for spring. The cool breeze, trips to the park and farmers markets. There is nothing like catching glimpses of the first buds appearing on the trees, when the earth feels fresh and new. Skipping Hippos reminds me of spring and provides the perfect poncho for the weather that comes with it, the trips to the park, farmers markets, and evening bike rides.


The simplicity is brilliant. Slide it over your child's head and they're ready to go. The best part, no buttons, zippers or sleeves to deal with. It's on before they have time to wiggle away and take off out the door.

The lightweight fleece keeps your child warm , but not too hot and the ball fringe and embellishments add just the right amount of detail. Skipping Hippos ponchos come in a variety of sizes and colors ranging from 6 months to 4T.

Today Skipping Hippos offers your choice of one of the ponchos (a $46 value) shown above (Evelyn, Apple, Gretta) in size S, M or L, to TWO lucky winners, doubling your chances of winning!

Visit their site and tell us: what is your favorite Skipping Hippos Poncho?

Would you love to win? Be sure to:
