View Full Version : Skip Hop Stroller Attachment question

10-04-2005, 04:00 PM
Will the stroller attachment fit all strollers? I was going to get one for my SIL and she just got a Silver Cross stroller and the handle bar thing doesn't have anything that'd stop something from sliding all the way down to the back of the seat, what exactly does the stroller attachment look like on the Skip Hops? Does it squeeze the bar tightly, have some kind of pressure clip or is it just a clip that goes around the bar?

Oh, I'm interested to know too! We have a Combi Ultra Savvy TS, http://www.combi-intl.com/2800.htm. Our handle bar is only stopped by a "Stroller Pack" that closes with Vecro.

If I hang a Skip Hop, won't the weight of the diaper bag weigh down on the vecro Stroller Pack? Nothing solid will stop it from sliding?

I have a Skip Hop Dash, and though I haven't used it yet (still waiting for stroller!), I did try it out in the store when I bought it. I tried it on an umbrella style stroller (Zippy), which has two handles, instead of the bar handle.

It comes with a long adjustable strap, just like the freebie the hospital gives you (though the strap is longer since it's a messenger bag). At each end of the long strap, it snaps onto the diaper bag (see link at end of post for pictures). To switch it to stroller mode, you unsnap the long strap, and snap in the two very short straps (one to each side of the bag), forming a little loop on each side of the bag. These little loops fit perfectly over the two umbrella handles.

If you wanted to use the Skip Hop on a single bar handle stroller, I think you could (they show it on their website), you would just snap the short handle straps on over the stroller bar on each side. For this, go to skip hop's website, then to "Products", then to "Dash", then to "Details" - they show the bag on a single bar handle pretty well.

Since I know my explanation was confusing :), I'd recommend looking at http://www.skiphop.com, they show a ton of pictures from different angles, and I think if you kind of know what part to look for, from my description, you might be able to figure it out. HTH! Let me know if you need more clarification!

Edited: nevermind! Ack, I read it wrong and was posting about the fleurville sling tote, hehe.

So our stroller came today (a P3) and of course I tried the Skip Hop on the handles, and they do sometimes slip down so that the bag is way too low. It seems like it slips down more when the handles are extended. I have tried shortening the straps as much as possible (to make a smaller loop) but it hasn't eliminated the problem. Hoping someone who has more experience can help out here! TIA!
