Review: Clippopotamus!

A few weeks ago I was, once again, shopping for hair clips for Vivian and ran across a site that was new to me- Clippopotamus!  This is a great Canadian company, started by a mom when she was home on maternity leave. Her adorable hair accessories quickly became popular and now can be purchased online and at stores in Canada as well as at the Clippopotamus site itself.  Click here for a list of retailers where you can find Clippopotamus.

I ended up buying several hair accessories and was so pleased when they arrived. The first thing that I got is this wonderful adjustable hairband-I bought it for Vivian and ended up keeping it for myself. I rarely can find hairbands that fit well and that both stay put and don't pinch- this one is brilliant! It's made with a plastic toggle on the bottom and a long ribbon, so it fits any size head.  The hairbands come in a number of beautiful ribbon options; I purchased the same one as is shown in this photo from the Clippopotamus website and think it's really cute!

I also purchased a set of teeny ones hair clips. These are perfect for Vivian since she's still so little. I like that they're tiny and cute and stay put in her hair well.

Clippopotamus also sells a ton of other accessories- lots of other hair accessories, pant clippos, bib clippos, mitten clippos, and soother clippos.  Everything is available in a huge range of color and pattern options, so you can find something that suits any taste! Check out their site- I think you'll really like what you see.

Disclosure: I received no product for this review and was not compensated in any way. Just wanted to write about some products that I purchased and that I really like!
