Kentwood, MI (PRWEB) November 2, 2010
Sassy is proud to announce that their new Stay-Clean™ Silly Squirts™ have received the 2010 JPMA Innovation Award at the ABC Kids Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada. This award is sponsored by the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association. Internationally recognized, the JPMA Innovation Awards highlight some of the most exciting new products in the juvenile marketplace today. Each year, more than 100 companies enter their most cutting-edge products for this renowned competition, but only 10 are awarded the title of Most Innovative.
The patent-pending Stay Clean ™ Silly Squirts™ have a unique 2-piece design that helps prevent mold growth that traditional bath squirters cannot avoid. Where typical bath squirters should be replaced every three to six months, the new Stay Clean ™ Silly Squirts ™ can be repeatedly used and properly cleaned without need of replacing.
While the brightly-colored, BPA free squirters snap apart for cleaning, they snap back together for fun play. In line with Sassy’s commitment to developmental play, the Stay Clean ™ Silly Squirts™ have the added benefit of assisting children in imaginative bath-time play. Each character features symmetrical faces to engage baby, and can be mixed and matched with all other Stay Clean™ Silly Squirts™ characters to create fun, whimsical animal creations. For instance, mix-and-match the cat and fish to create a catfish.
“It is a great feeling to know that we have designed a product that satisfies a long standing mom problem while providing hours of bathtime fun for baby,” said Rick Schaub, President of Sassy.
The initial line of Stay Clean ™ Silly Squirts™ is available now at Babies R Us and other fine retailers, with additional characters coming in the months ahead. Perfect for babies 6 months and up, Stay Clean ™ Silly Squirts™ come two to a pack for a suggested retail price of $5.99.
