Enjoy these exciting new children’s products from Skip Hop this summer.

Innovative parenting brand Skip Hop recently released a host of new products designed to make your child’s life even more fun and – in the case of the Sleep Trainer – your nighttime routine a whole lot easier.

Here are four brilliant products in particular to get your hands on…

Tropical Paradise Activity Gym & Soother

Activity Gym & Soother, £85

Take a trip to the tropics – at home and on the go! Lush leaves, adorable animals and soothing sounds turn playtime into an outdoor adventure. Featuring beautiful tropical artwork and a mesh canopy, this engaging activity gym also offers 2-in-1 versatility with a detachable Sloth Soother that easily attaches to carriers and more for outings with baby. It also plays two calming sounds to soothe baby on the move, rainforest and white noise/heartbeat. The comfy playmat includes a soft leaf pillow for tummy time fun, plus a cute monkey with a banana teether toy, a toucan chime and a crinkle leopard and is suitable from birth.

Tropical Paradise Toucan Maraca

Toucan Maraca, £8

A tropical take on baby’s favourite rattle, this colourful Toucan Maraca encourages mini musicians as they rock to the beat! Just the right size to fit into their tiny hands, the maraca’s vibrant, contrasting colours will stimulate their hand-eye co-ordination and gross motor skills development. It’s suitable from birth.

Tropical Paradise Sloth Jitter Toy

Sloth Jitter Toy, £10

With a plush, sleepy sloth playing peek-a-boo in the leaves, this tropical friend vibrates and shakes when the leaf-shaped teether toy is pulled. Fun at home or on the go— just attach it to your stroller and keep baby busy and happy as you stroll. It’s suitable from birth.

Dream and Shine Sleep Trainer Nightlight

Dream and Shine Sleep Trainer Nightlight, £25

Encourage better sleep habits for your toddler with this versatile Sleep Trainer Nightlight. The 4-in-1 design works as a sleep trainer, soother, nightlight and alarm that’s a cinch to set and customise for your needs. Easy-to-follow colour cues and music signal time for bed, almost time to get up and okay to get up. Works great for nap time, too. Soother mode includes two calming sounds and a sweet lullaby. The nightlight comforts your child with three brightness levels. While the alarm mode – ideal for your growing toddler – offers a gentle wake-up call with a sweet song and lights.
