At Flipkart, we’ve sharpened our focus on the kids’ fashion segment which has helped us scale the business to 3 times in the past 2 years, with majority growth being driven by new customers. The launch of Hopscotch is in line with this and we believe that their high-quality kids’ fashion products will bring immense value from a choice perspective.”

Elaborating on the philosophy of the company and the relevance of the partnership with Flipkart, Mr. Rahul Anand, Founder & CEO, Hopscotch, added, “With increasing exposure to the latest trends, parents in India continue to seek fashion-forward choices for their kids that also offer great value for money. Seasonal collections are in great demand, especially in tier-2 and 3 cities, but access is limited. Hopscotch fills this void by featuring the trendiest kids’ fashion catalog at the most affordable price points. Our partnership with Flipkart will further enable us to reach millions of such consumers across the country.”
