Flap Happy was founded over 30 years ago by designer Laurie Lipson Snyder, a Malibu native and mother of four.
After Laurie was diagnosed with skin cancer, she started the business with the purpose of shielding her children’s faces and necks from the sun’s harmful UV rays with a protective hat that no other company in the marketplace was creating.
Today, Laurie has grown Flap Happy’s commitment to protective childrenswear with the addition of swimwear, playwear, and outerwear - The vibrant colors, playful prints, and unique designs make our childrenswear popular choices for boys and girls.
Our entire range of protective baby and childrenswear offers UPF 50+ sun protection, is made of recycled fabric, free of chemical additives, and designed for easy care.
“We like to think that we're saving the earth and its children, one swim hat at a time.”
