Business profile


In 1999, at a kitchen table in Somerset, Hippychick was born. It was Julia Minchin’s table and it was her first product – the innovative back-saving Hipseat – that got everything started.

From there Hippychick has blossomed into a booming business committed to helping new parents on their journey through parenthood – offering a helping hand with practical solutions for the tricky bits, and a plethora of beautifully designed luxury toys and gifts that you’ll want to treasure forever – long after your children have flown the nest.

Hippychick is here to help make the tricky bits just a little bit easier, with hundreds of practical solutions to daily problems. Many of our products are our own invention. But we also collaborate with other parents (they’re the experts after all) who have lightbulb moments that we help develop and take to market. We are a family business and families are at the heart of everything we do.
