CHICAGO, Jan. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Protect-A-Bed®, a leading provider of bedding protection products, is searching for the best and proven potty training tactics. The company is hosting a contest on its Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/ProtectABed) to capture and share potty training stories. Participants are encouraged to post their proven potty training tips – or blunders – for a chance to win mattress protection products.
One lucky grand prize winner will win a mattress protection prize pack for their entire household (up to four beds) along with a potty training protection kit. The grand prize winner will also be featured on Protect-A-Bed's website (www.protectabed.com).
Twelve lucky winners (three per week through the duration of the contest) will each receive one potty training protection kit, a system designed to waterproof and keep a child's mattress free of stains while reducing the amount of time and embarrassment associated with bedwetting. The winners will be randomly selected each week from the pool of contest participants and will be named on Protect-A-Bed's Facebook wall.
The contest begins Jan. 26 and runs through Feb. 21, 2011 and is open to all United States residents 18 years of age and older. Three weekly winners of the potty training protection kits will be randomly selected and announced each Friday during the contest (Jan. 28 and Feb. 4, 11 and 18). The grand prize winner will be chosen by Feb. 25, 2011. Fans of Protect-A-Bed's Facebook page are able to view and "like" their favorite submissions, though a jury of Protect-A-Bed judges will ultimately make the final selection of the grand prize winner based on the uniqueness of their entry.
"We know potty training is one of the most stressful things parents have to do in their lifetime," said Protect-A-Bed CEO James Bell. "We also know every family has great potty training tips and funny stories to share. We want to hear it all – including what didn't work so well for them."
Bell says the best tips will be showcased on the Facebook page to help families as they begin the potty training process. "We hope the information and encouragement will help families who are facing the challenge of potty training."
Protect-A-Bed is based in Northbrook, Ill., a suburb of Chicago. To enter the Facebook contest, or to learn more about Protect-A-Bed and its products, visit www.facebook.com/protectabed or www.protectabed.com.
