Original Flap Happy® kids’ clothing is your number one choice for casual children’s clothing. Flap Happy was founded by designer Laurie Lipson Snyder. A Malibu native and mother of four, Laurie started the business 25 years ago with an idea for a hat that would protect her children’s faces and necks from the sun and elements.
More About Flap Happy Girls and Boys
After developing the multi-million dollar hat company, Laurie introduced a clothing line, expanding Flap Happy to swimwear, playwear, outerwear and headwear lines. The vibrant colors, playful prints and unique designs make Flap Happy’s clothing and swimwear popular choices for boys and girls, including infant, toddler and kids sizes through 10. Flap Happy's entire range is designed for easy care. Our chemical-free UPF 50+ hats and fashions are available year-round.
In 2010, Flap Happy launched a new trendy boy's line, Kai Bean Kids, which combines the latest trends in contemporary menswear with the laidback California lifestyle. Laurie Snyder says that Kai Bean Kids is "the clothing that dads want to wear, but for kids!" Kai Bean Kids has a very clean, comfortable look and is available in a variety of styles including tee shirts, shorts, pants and hoodies, with details such as raw edges and mixed fabrications within one garment.
Many Flap Happy and Kai Ban Kids products are available on our website and are sold in specialty clothing online retailers and stores across the United States. Our high quality, comfortable fashions are all proudly made in the USA!
