SPENCER, MA (PRWEB) January 29, 2007
Multi-award winning children's product manufacturer Taggies, Inc. has returned from a whirlwind trip to L.A., where the company was one of a select group of vendors invited to participate in an exclusive pre-Golden Globes Hollywood gifting event, The Boom Boom Room & Big Kid Villa, hosted by celebrity fashion insider Jayneoni Moore. Taggies shared its patented, interactive line of colorful, tag-adorned products with hundreds of celebrity moms.
The "kid appeal" of TAGGIES™ blankets, bordered all around with an array of multi-colored tags, quickly became apparent, as babies and toddlers reached for them from the arms of Hollywood's hottest celebrities, including Angela Bassett, Chandra Wilson, Shirly Brener, Joely Fisher, and Rena Sofer.
Angela Bassett was excited to discover TAGGIES, enthusing, "What a wonderful product!" Angela selected outfits for her twins from the new line of TAGGIES interactive apparel.
"I love these!" said TV Guide Channel host Zoriana Kitt, who is expecting a baby. That sentiment was echoed by Kevin Weisman of Alias and his wife Jodi, who attended with daughter Maya.
When MTV's Bill Bellamy's little boy latched onto his gift of a Take-A-Long TAGGIES™ travel toy, dad Bill joked, "I want one for myself!" Dr. 90210's Linda Li and her husband brought their 8-day-old baby, Alexis Victoria, and gushed over the super-soft Love Notes Little TAGGIES™ blanket. Joely Fisher, of 'Til Death, proudly declared, "I am a huge fan of TAGGIES," while sharing the products' benefits with her very pregnant sister. Speaking of sisters, 20-year-old actress Kat Dennings announced, "I don't have kids, but my sister is going to have a baby soon, and she is going to love these!"
Said Glamour Specialist Jayneoni Moore, one of Hollywood's favorite style celebrities, seen regularly on Entertainment Tonight/The Insider, MSNBC Hot List, MTV, CNN and VH1's Fabulous Life of Celebrity Kids, "I was soooo excited to have Taggies included in our Pre Golden Globes Gifting Suite!!! I love their products, and it's obvious that hundreds of celebrity parents do, too!"
Jean Louisa Kelly, of Yes, Dear reminded all present that her two-year-old, Sean, is a "Taggies kid" who has loved his TAGGIES since infancy. Born in Boylston, Massachusetts, Jean Louisa was thrilled to note, "The Taggies ladies are near my hometown!"
Explained Danielle Ayotte, co-founder and co-owner of Taggies, Inc., "Participating in the Boom Boom Room event was an incredibly uplifting mix of meeting fantastic celebrity parents and their adorable children, along with hearing, over and over again, that so many of them are longstanding Taggies followers! Seeing so many of their babies clutching, interacting with, and enjoying Taggies, while listening to their parents share how much our products mean to them, was very meaningful and rewarding. We really appreciated being a part of such a fun day!"
The Boom Room's Baby and Big Kid Villa benefits the Epidermolysis Bullosa Medical Research Foundation, a volunteer nonprofit foundation dedicated to the support of medical research of Epidermolysis Bullosa.
Young mothers Julie Dix and Danielle Ayotte founded Taggies, Inc. after meeting in their toddlers' playgroup. Danielle immediately noticed the "blankie" Julie's toddler carried -- trimmed all around with satiny, colorful little "tags," the kind babies always seem to find and love to rub.
