Leading Parenting Industry Program Recognizes Innovative Infant Care Products

Munchkin, Inc., designer and manufacturer of clever infant and toddler products, today announced that its ARM & HAMMER™ Diaper Pail has been awarded The National Parenting Center’s 2010 Seal of Approval which acknowledges the finest products available for families.

The ARM & HAMMER™ Diaper Pail neutralizes odors in the nursery through a patented odor control system with the power of ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda at its core. It features a proprietary self-sealing system and refill bags that parents simply snap, seal, and toss in the trash. The ARM & HAMMER™ Diaper Pail has eliminated the need to cut and tie bags, making it an easier to use option than other pails on the market.

“At Munchkin, we are dedicated to providing today’s parents with unique and practical solutions for babies and toddlers,” said Steven B. Dunn, chairman and CEO of Munchkin, Inc. “We’re pleased The National Parenting Center recognizes that the Diaper Pail accomplishes what we strive for, which is to create clever products that help make life a little easier and more enjoyable for parents.”

Munchkin’s dedication to providing today’s parents with innovative baby and toddler products has led to a number of other top distinctions over the years, such as the Fit Pregnancy Editors’ Choice Award, the Parenting “Mom Tested” Award, the BabyTalk Editors’ Choice Award, the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association “Show Off” Product Competition Winner award, the Parents’ Choice Gold Award, the Dr. Toy Awards, and the iParenting Media Awards.

The National Parenting Center established its Seal of Approval program twenty years ago to better inform parents by providing the most comprehensive and responsible parenting advice, recommended by some of the world’s most respected individuals in the child rearing and development fields. The independent testing procedure involves a multi-step review process conducted over an eight-week period.
