LittleHippo was founded in 2016 when Stephanie Lai and her husband Dennis Liu recognized a lack of well-made children's electronic products. They had been seeking a children's clock for their two nieces, and realized everything on the market was either cheaply made or unreasonably priced. Over the next two years, the duo studied, designed and created a children's sleep trainer and alarm (without breaking parents’ brains to set up or their bank to buy). LittleHippo’s mission is to create beautiful, modern children's products; in fact, it specializes in designs that parents wouldn't necessarily think were children's products at first glance, yet still bring delight to little ones everywhere. Most importantly, LittleHippo focuses on high-quality products minus the sky-high price tags—making parenthood a little bit easier in the process.
