About Sam

oogaa was created by Sam Skolnik, a bright young designer who found herself a mother one day.

Sam wanted to unite her passion for sustainable innovation with her creative urge to bring beauty into every area of domestic life with children.

Feeding baby Max lunch one day, rice ground into her hair and still in her pyjamas, Sam saw the advantage of making mealtimes more fun: airplane spoons that glide the goodies safely into land; train engines that chuff towards the open wide tunnel; feeding bowls that reveal big smiles as they’re emptied… all with the little oogaa characters she had designed as a child.

However, on her journey to put her ideas into production, Sam unearthed some unappetising facts about plastics: they can leach potentially harmful chemicals like toxic bisphenol A (BPA) into a baby’s growing body – and heating plastics (just as you would a food bowl in a microwave) can make them release toxins all the more rapidly.

Sam Skolnik had always done things in a passionate yet principled way and using these plastics for her products was not an option. She sought a safer and more sustainable solution.

oogaa’s products are made using high quality silicone – a safe, durable and environmentally responsible material that’s odourless, tasteless, microwave safe, dishwasher safe, steriliser safe, heat resistant and shatter proof

Now the oogaa range has expanded to include even more innovative, healthy and responsible designs for children. The oogaa team numbers 6 staff and many valued contributors, including our customers.

We’re still learning of course – but we’ll be doing that forever because that’s where challenge, variation and freshness come from.
