LAS VEGAS, Sept. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Munchkin(R) -- maker of award-winning baby and toddler products -- is heading to this year's ABC Kids Expo from September 7-10 at the Las Vegas Convention Center with a new line of fashion-forward Jelly Bean(TM) slings and carriers designed for modern parents on-the-go. Whether it's taking baby to get some fresh air, dashing from work to daycare or simply running errands, the Jelly Bean(TM) line offers products that fit the active lifestyles of today's parents. Munchkin knows that "it's the little things" that make parenting easier and more fun, so the Jelly Bean(TM) line provides not only comfort, safety and durability but also little extras such as convenient pockets and reversible designs. The Jelly Bean(TM) Reversible Sling (SRP $34.99) helps promote bonding with baby and comes in a variety of contemporary prints that fit the look of modern moms. Each Reversible Sling has two different prints and it can be used in five different carrying positions without the use of buckles or rings. The Reversible Sling is perfect for swaddling newborns and is convenient and discreet for breastfeeding as well. The Jelly Bean(TM) Cargo Sling (SRP $39.99) can be altered to comfortably fit to any parent. It offers a double-buckle reinforced strap for safety, as well as breathable mesh and an extra-padded shoulder strap for comfort. The cargo pockets not only make for great styling, but also eliminate the need to carry a separate diaper bag. The Jelly Bean(TM) Carrier (SRP $49.99) has a head support for newborns facing inward that can also be used as a back support for toddlers facing outward. The subtle styling and 3 Buckle System(TM) make it easy and comfortable for moms and dads to alternate using the Carrier. The padded belt provides excellent lumbar support when carrying a growing infant. The Carrier also includes a handy storage pocket for keys and other essentials when moms and dads are out and about.
