Christmas Gift Idea for the Little Girl on Your List (6 months to 6 years): Skipping Hippos Poncho

Christmas Gift Idea for the Little Girl on Your List (6 months to 6 years): Skipping Hippos Poncho 1If I had to pick just one item out of my daughter's "closet" that is her very cutest piece, it would definitely be her Skipping Hippos poncho. She looks irresistible in almost anything, but this poncho really shoots her adorableness off of the scale (see left). I slip it over any outfit and instantly receive a rainshower of compliments.

Not only is it unique, fun, and "fairy tale"-inspired (think: Little Red Riding Hood), it's also machine-washable and perfect for "impatient" toddlers who hate to wait around for zippers to be zipped and buttons to be buttoned.

Adding to the appeal is the fact that the creator and CEO of Skipping Hippos is a mom. Jolie Fay has two daughters: Jane, 3 1/2, and Adeline, 20 months. Jolie had this to say about the poncho, "If you and your daughter are on an undercover spy mission, do not let her wear the poncho. If you and your daughter are hoping for a low profile, dash out un-noticed, errand, don't put the poncho on her. People will stop you, and people will notice and people will talk about your beautiful little girl in her cute little poncho."

I couldn't have said it better myself.
