What the brand says, what the judges thought and where to buy...

They Say:

The Duo Special Edition French Stripe changing bag as all the functionality of Skip Hop’s best-selling classic Duo but with several extra features, ensuring mums stand out from the crowd.  It incorporates faux leather detailing, key fob zipper pull and rolled clutch handles as well as shoulder strap, while the classic ‘boating’ style navy striped fabric looks like canvas but is actually wipe clean, keeping the bag looking new.  Skip Hop’s Shuttle Clips allow the bag to attach to buggy handles in seconds, while mums will also appreciate the nine compartments, contrasting lining, cushioned changing pad and ‘quiet’ magnetic closures.

• Popular with parents and celebrities alike, the New York based Skip Hop brand provides parents with top quality, chic products that are also designed to be highly practical for bringing up baby.  With extra features having been added to the already best-selling Skip Hop Duo, this Duo Special Edition changing bag is no exception.

• The nine compartments keep baby’s essentials organised and wet and messy items separate; the pockets include a roomy main compartment, large rear pocket for changing pad and nappies, two roomy front pouches and two insulated pockets, a convenient phone holder and easy access pen holders to ensure mums have everything to hand.   

• It’s hard to spot that the Duo Special Edition’s navy striped fabric is wipe clean rather than canvas, but this clever poly-canvas material ensures the bag stays looking as good as new for years to come.  Three other smart fabric designs/colours for the Duo Special Edition are about to be launched in the UK. 

• The main compartment has a zip closure to keep contents safe. Parents will also appreciate the ‘quiet’ magnetic closures which help prevent waking baby.  The contrasting lining makes contents easy to spot, the included changing pad is cushioned and waterproof, and the entire changing bag is BPA and Phthalate free. 

Judges Comments:

"So much thought has been put into the design of this changing bag, right down to the 'quiet' magnetic closures. It is beautifully elegant, with the now wipeable stripe design giving it more than a hint of French chic."
