Based in the USA, oogaa designs its unique products for a global mix of cultures and communities who share one thing in common: a desire to provide only the very best for their baby.

An oogaa is born

Oogaa really started when Sam and her nine year old classmates tapped their creative force by drawing a menagerie of characters with googly eyes and roly-poly bodies. They decided to call them oogaas, after the old car horns that go “OO-gah”.

About Sam

Life on three continents has shown American-born oogaa Home design director Samantha Skolnik the importance of teaching children what they can learn from different cultures. Every day this worldview inspires Sam to fulfill her dream by creating safe, fun products to delight every child on the planet.

Sam began work as an interior designer in New York City and London on corporate projects, boutique hotels and commercial development. When in 2002 she became a mom to son Max, her passions quickly shifted to designing baby products.
