WOONSOCKET, RI--(Marketwired - Oct 18, 2013) - Summer Infant®, global developer and distributor of juvenile health, safety and wellness products, revealed an array of new products at the 2013 ABC Kids Expo in Las Vegas, expanding upon its already vast line of monitors, nursery items, gear, furniture and more. ABC attendees received a firsthand look at new stroller designs, an innovative walk-through gate, and a unique potty training step stool with optimal leg position support. Also unveiled were new cribs equipped with JPMA award nominated, one-of-a-kind, Simple Adjust™ technology, that provides caregivers with an easier way to adjust the crib as a child grows.
"We are excited to introduce a range of innovative new products in a variety of categories at this year's ABC Kids Expo," said Jason Macari, Summer Infant President and Chief Executive Officer. "Summer Infant strives to be a pioneer in the juvenile space, and the expo has always been the ideal venue to unveil our latest innovations. We are pleased to have received such excellent feedback from this year's attendees."
Some of the new items from Summer Infant include:
Vibrant, Lightweight Strollers
Summer Infant's recently released lightweight umbrella stroller -- the 3D lite Convenience Stroller -- is expanding its fashions with even more on-trend colors for parents to choose. Currently in black and lime green, the chic stroller will soon be available in a vibrant array of colors: blue, pink, yellow, and orange. The 3D lite Convenience Stroller, at only 12 pounds, boasts an extra large storage basket -- the first in its category without an X frame, adjustable and removable canopy with a flip out sun visor, a wide seat base and recline feature, and large wheels that allow it to glide over most surfaces. In addition to the totally redesigned, high-end Fuze standalone stroller and travel system, Summer Infant also introduced the Spectra stroller, a multi-functional full-size stroller featuring a simple one-hand, self-standing fold and multi-position reclining seat. The lightweight aluminum frame and modern design ensures that time on-the-go with baby is stylish and effortless. The Spectra stroller can also be paired with the Prodigy Infant Car Seat for a complete travel system that will grow with the child.
New Cribs with Innovative Technology
New nursery furniture includes the Woodberry, Everest and Lancaster cribs, which will be part of Summer Infant's expanded line of cribs equipped with the Simple Adjust crib mattress height positioner technology. This hassle-free solution to changing the height of a mattress in the crib earned the company a spot as a 2013 JPMA Innovation Awards finalist.
Using this feature, caregivers can simply adjust the mattress height on Summer Infant cribs equipped with the technology in seconds, with no tools required. This technology provides the right height at every stage as baby grows. Newborns can be easily and comfortably lifted from the crib by parents when the mattress is at its highest level, while postitioning the crib to the lowest levels helps avoid the problem of older children climbing or falling out of the crib, thus giving caregivers the peace of mind they need that baby is secure.
Attractive, Easy & Secure Gates
Another standout product is the Step to Secure Metal Walk-Thru Gate, the latest addition to Summer Infant's safety gate collection. This innovative gate has a revolutionary pressure mounted installation system. Simply position the gate in the doorframe and step on the bottom foot pedal to snap the pressure mounts into place and lock the U-frame. A Safety Gate Guide can be found on Summer Infant's website, aiding families seeking to find the safest possible gate to install in their homes.
The Perfect Potty Training Aid
Earlier this year, Summer Infant acquired the assets of Little Looster, LLC, and at ABC revealed their new Little Looster® potty training step stool. The Little Looster provides support for toddlers' legs and fits discreetly around the toilet base, aiding in more comfortable potty training practices. The horseshoe shape design also allows adults to use the toilet without obstruction.
Additional items will be released in the next few months. For the latest information on Summer Infant products and to view expert tips and advice, visit: www.summerinfant.com, www.facebook.com/summerinfant and www.twitter.com/summerinfant.
