WOONSOCKET, R.I., Oct. 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Summer Infant® (NASDAQ: SUMR), a global leader in premium infant and juvenile products, stood out from the crowd at last week's ABC Kids Expo, the premier juvenile products industry show, as the company revealed new product lines and innovations, and was recognized with five awards and accolades. The ABC Kids Expo showcases tens of thousands of juvenile products each year, with a select few singled out for excellence by industry experts. Summer Infant received top honors this year for its current and 2016 offerings in the following categories: bath, swaddle blankets, bottles and baby monitors.
"The many awards Summer Infant received at the ABC Kids Expo is a testament to the team's fantastic talent, dedication and promising success heading into 2016," said Dan Almagor, Chairman of the Board of Summer Infant. "We are proud and excited of the reaction to the varied new and innovative product offerings that have been thoughtfully designed for today's savvy and technologically-advanced families."
Parent Tested Parent Approved (PTPA), a valued organization comprised of a community of parent product testers, awarded their Top Picks of ABC to two Summer Infant products: The Lil' Luxuries® Whirlpool, Bubbling Spa & Shower – an item from the company's luxury baby bath collection – and the Babble Band – the first wearable audio monitor, available in 2016. PTPA narrowed its selection to a mere 40 product finalists, but only 20 were given the prestigious honor.
"We are thrilled to honor products at the ABC Kids Expo that our judges regard as innovative and deserving," said Sharon Vinderine, founder & CEO of PTPA Media, Inc. "The Summer Infant products that were selected as our 2015 ABC Top Picks award stood out from the competition, and we're excited to have them as part of our inaugural group of winners."
The baby product experts at The Bump, a leading pregnancy and parenting resource, awarded two soon-to-be-released Summer Infant items with its Editor's Choice awards – the Babble Band wearable audio monitor and Born Free baby bottles. Less than 100 of the many products on display at ABC Kids Expo were given Editor's Choice awards by The Bump.
The BabyList Baby Registry, a universal registry service, gave its "2015 Best Pick" award to the widely-used, parent-trusted Summer Infant SwaddleMe® line at ABC Kids Expo. The selection was based on feedback from 8,000 parent registrants that have babies between six months and one year of age. SwaddleMe was a winner in the "Swaddle" category.
In addition to the launches of the Babble Band and Born Free bottles, Summer Infant will also offer in 2016 the anticipated Summer Smart Nursery collection, a new Baby My Baby massage line, an extension of its portable on-the-go product line, new Kiddopotamus toys, and more.
