Parenting products you never knew you needed until you tried them? That’s been Somerset based Hippychick’s ethos since the company started trading in baby and toddler essentials over 20 years ago.
So, it’s good to know that Hippychick products are still delivering on this count, not only by parents but also by the national Made For Mums Awards- the go to online platform for mums and mums to be with a following of some 44K.
Hippychick Hipseat – Editor Choice Award
The Hippychick Hipseat, Hippychick’s founding product has just been crowned with an Editor’s Choice Award in the Made For Mums 2021 Awards, an accolade which will undoubtedly continue to make it the biggest selling line in Hippychick’s now extensive portfolio.
Julia Minchin, Founder and Managing Director of Hippychick is delighted. ‘Even though we’ve been trading for many years, we never lose sight of our core values. As a business, we’ve always wanted to be seen as a brand that delivers genuine innovation in a highly competitive market, but that are also utterly practical. Over the years, the Hippychick Hipseat has always scored on this front, offering parents, particularly those suffering from back pain which is often caused by carrying children around on a hip, a unique baby-carry solution which will prevent you from throwing your spine out of alignment. Regardless of its health benefits, the Hipseat is just a brilliantly practical solution for travelling and will always go where the buggy won’t.’
Hippychick Toddler Waterproof All In Ones – Gold Award
Hippychick also won a Gold Award for its toddler waterproof all in ones – a collection that never fails to impress users with its astonishing effectiveness against the elements, attention to detail and a fair price. ‘Though weather forecasters are claiming that May 2021 has been the wettest since records began, it’s actually been a bit of godsend for us’ continued Julia. ‘Issues associated with Brexit, coupled with the Pandemic, meant that a consignment of waterproofs from the Far East were delayed by six months. This meant that we missed our annual winter selling season entirely. Suffice to say that the recent downpours and unseasonably cold weather as meant that we’re almost out of stock again. Thankfully, we’ve also got more on the way which will hopefully arrive on our shores a little quicker’.
Bumkins Bibs – Bronze Award
Hippychick’s Bumkins Bibs, fantastic value, quality bibs also won a bronze in the Made for Mums awards, making it a triple win for a brand that continues to make its mark as one of Somerset’s biggest business successes.
