Who says staying at home can’t be loads of fun? These toys will help provide lots of happy family moments.

Who said that lockdown can’t be fun? Lifestyle, parenting and toy brand Skip Hop want to spread a little positivity and encourage families across the UK to #KeepSkipHopping with a message to bring the #FunatHome. 

The team are looking to raise spirits and lend a helping hand to families across the UK looking to enjoy some quality time.

The team has converted the Skip Hop social media platforms into a hub of information, sharing educational resources as well as offering tips to keep the kids occupied at home, including games and activities.

Their aim is to encourage families to stay home, spend time together and make memories that they will cherish in the years to come.

They want you to join-in and share your #FunatHome with them too. That’s why the brand is excited to reveal its ‘must-haves made better’ toys to bring the fun and keep the kids occupied whilst we all stay at home.
