Skip Hop Introduces Central Park Blanket + Cooler Bag

skiphop_centralSkip Hop debuted its new outdoor blanket + cooler bag, Central Park. We are super excited about this new outdoor blanket because it is perfect for Spring and Summer activities such as trips to the park, beach, sporting events or just outdoors. And with kids, we spend most of the summer at those places!

The Central Park blanket unfolds into a spacious 5’ x 5’ water-resistant blanket, keeping everyone’s picnic clean and dry. This versatile blanket features an insulated cooler bag to chill snacks and drinks; there’s even room for mom and dad’s essentials. Add an ice pack to keep everything cool during full day out. Detach the cooler bag and it’s a compact messenger/cooler bag for quick trips to the ice cream stand!

The blanket is spacious, lightweight, easy-to-fold and compact.  It can conveniently be carried over the shoulder or converted into a backpack.  It features a cushy surface that wipes clean, water-resistant fabric and a durable canvas backing.  Plus, it’s BPA-Free, Phthalate-Free and PVC-Free. 

Available in two fun, unisex patters – Wave Dot/Black and Uptown Stripe/Brown – The Skip Hop Central Park will be available in stores and online this April and will retail for $45.

    This blanket, while loaded with pretty decent features, shows how some companies are no longer able to be creative and invent. It was brought to my attention by one of my students that this blanket is a re-make, or “rip off” of the JJ Cole Essentials Blanket. The differences I see is that one company was innovative, and original–While the other, a copy cat. I will say that I have used both blankets, and while the Central Park blanket is practical– I prefer the JJ Cole original. I support innovation and would not hesitate to say that originality will be what helps us overturn this economic recession. Business that copy the ideas of others and market them as their own prove to me that they don’t hold as strongly as some to the American Dream–which if you recall was established on freedom, independence and breaking free.
