Clippopotamus Review and Giveaway Ends April 15, 2010

Clippopotamus is a family business in every sense of the word. Ryan and Alexandria Durrell run the company together: Ryan plays an actuarial analyst by day, and a web wizard and graphic guru by night while Alexandria put her business degree to work and turned a hobby into a fun business that would allow her to stay home with their daughter (now just over 2 years old).
Alexandria is just known as 'Mommy' to her original Clippo Cutie, Story (an excellent and willing model!). While on mat leave, Alexandria sought out a new creative outlet and started making hair clips for her hair-privileged daughter. With the help of her remarkably supportive friends and family (and a huge thank you to the women of the Hitched! community), Clippopotamus was born and went online for sales starting in February of 2008. Within just a few short weeks, Clippo products were being stocked in some of Canada's finest kids' stores and chains. When things started to get too busy to keep up, Vanessa DiCiacca was brought on board to help with production. 
Clippo is now far more than just a hair clip company. They have got products for boys and girls... in addition to hair clips, they sell 7 other products (with more being added all the time!) and are stocked in almost 50 stores across the country. 
 I was thrilled when Alexandria sent both my little guys a few items for Review. 

Emma has the funniest thin hair and her hair is really starting to grow. I know where I live it is pretty hard to just walk into any store and buy hair clips that will work for baby fine hair. This is why I love the internet and super crafty moms like Alexandia that have specialized in making hair clips and accessories for this little bunch of fashionistas like Emma :) 
Tiny Ones With Bows!
These 3/4" snap clips,  fully covered with precocious patterns that are perfect for the peach fuzz. And just like big sis, she can choose plain clips or ones with the ever-so-teeniest bows you've ever seen. 
With the help of her Clippos we can let her bangs grow out!
 We were also sent Clippopotamus
Their original product! Tried, tested and put through the ringer (quite literally), Their Little Ones are sturdy, lightweight and adorable. These sweet little hair clips come with or without bows, your choice! They're 1 1/4"€Â� long, covered with ribbon around the entire clip, and specially lined inside so they absolutely, positively won't slip out. Emma has only enough for one of these clips but they are super strong for fine hair, and I love all the color and pattern choices.  I Remember as a kid having my mittens attached with super long strings {lol} Today Moms have a much more stylish accessory to help prevent lost mittens.
Meet Mitten Clippos!
I think this is a brilliant idea and these are perfect even for light weight mittens in the spring time.  I know winter looks like its on its way out but it is still cold and I have found these most helpful from preventing Everett from losing his mitts. These have super strong clips and with many more winters to come , these are a must have to have in your home especially if you have young children.  
There must be a magical land filled to the mountain-tops with all the lost mittens and socks of this world. But as lovely as that place may be.  At Clippopotumus they really felt like it was high time the kids stopped losing their mittens so for the winter of 2008, they introduced their line of Mitten Clippos. They're the perfect length for keeping mittens and gloves attached to jackets and they come in all the most awesome patterns again, fully washable and super sturdy to boot!  
Why Clippo?
First and foremost, ALL of their products are handmade and packaged in Canada by Canadian moms.
So what make us different?
Their hairclips are the strongest on the market at the very best price. If you don't agree, you can return them for a refund. They have products for boys and girls and are constantly redesigning to make things better.
Choosing Clippo hair products means a choice of modern patterns and sleek styles. They change things up every season to keep it fresh, too.
Buying from
Clippopotamus means you're getting fair pricing - superior products for a better price. You're choosing adorable, sturdy goods made lovingly by Moms with a conscience.
They believe that giving back is the first step in building a business - and they  actively stand behind that statement. We regularly donate products and gift baskets to our Canadian community.
They also make:
- Blanket Clippos
- Soother Clippos
- Bib Clippos (an absolute must for any babe- or kid-on-the-go!)
- Mitten Clippos (never again will your cutie lose a mitten or glove!)
- Adjustable Hairbands
- Gift Sets (with gorgeous hand-made cards by Shelley Shaw-Weldon & Samantha Mathie of Calgary, AB!)
