When we had our kids, just seven years ago, “designer” stuff was just just being delivered. DaddyTypes was able to find it, but the average consumer was blissfully unaware. Then there was Boon and all the beautiful things designed by Rebecca Finell. Now there are a lot of baby companies making beautiful, practical products.
Skip*Hop is one of these companies (love their new baby linens) and we just tried their new
Skip Hop Soapster, a big blue plastic penguin that dispenses soap in foam form after seeing it at the ABC baby kids show in Louisville this Fall.
This thing is so fun that you have to get one, even if it’s just for you to keep in your own bath or shower.
The Soapster is fun because is does something very practical, but does it in an innovative and entertaining way. At it’s basic level, the Soapster dispenses soap, but not any soap. It ingeniously lets you dilute body gel or liquid soap and creates a foam at the same time. That’s all very nice and the designers could have stopped there. But they also took the need to have a filler line for the soap and made that into a clear belly of the penguin, through which you can see an outline of a fish. Open the top of the penguin to pour in the soap, and you find that the fish outline is attached to a wand and it’s actually a soap bubble wand.
Fun product that will amuse kids and dads alike. We are loving ours!
