Kids and young adults that get the right amount of sleep handle stress better and outperform their peers who don't get enough. These new collections are built to help kids sleep better, helping them feel better and achieve more each day.
Des Plaines, IL (PRWEB) March 14, 2011
Building upon its successful relationship with the noted sleep expert Dr. James B. Maas, premier bedding manufacturer United Feather & Down is expanding the partnership to include new bedding collections targeted to kids and college students.
The new introductions, The Remmy™ Good Night Collection – based on Dr. Maas’ children’s book “Remmy and the Brain Train” – and the Sleep for Success! Dorm Collection, target two segments of the population most in need of quality sleep. As Dr. Maas points out in his New York Times best-seller “Power Sleep” and the recent sequel “Sleep for Success!,” sleep is as important to growing minds and bodies as good nutrition, yet many children and young adults aren’t getting enough. The new bedding is designed to help children and young adults sleep more soundly, improving their alertness, mood and performance.
“Lack of sleep is truly detrimental to growing kids and young adults; it can mimic conditions like ADHD and lead to obesity. Conversely, studies prove that kids and young adults that get the right amount of sleep handle stress better and outperform their peers that don’t get enough,” said Dr. Maas. “My new collections with United Feather & Down are built to help kids achieve longer and better sleep, helping their performance and overall well-being.”
The Remmy™ Good Night Collection
United Feather & Down is pleased to re-introduce the Remmy brand on the 10th anniversary of Dr. Maas’ award-winning “Remmy and the Brain Train” book. The new collection includes a complete line of bedding products tailored to children, based on “Remmy,” the star of Dr. Maas’ book: a little boy who learns about good sleep habits while on an adventure through the “Land of Good Sleep.” Dr. Maas’ unique Secret Pajama Pouch pillows, which unzip to reveal a storage pocket, are also an exciting part of the Remmy collection.
The Remmy Good Night collection is offered with moisture-wicking fabrics and fills as well as SilverFill® for kids who need extra allergy protection. Products are packaged with a “Sleep Tips for Your Child” booklet that helps parents better understand why sleep is a necessity for health and peak performance, offering tips to instill good sleep habits for the future.
The Sleep for Success! Dorm Collection
Dr. Maas’ newest research and studies by other internationally recognized sleep experts provide significant evidence that sleep is correlated with success in school and athletic performance. The Sleep for Success! Dorm Collection is designed to help teens and college students make the most of the sleep they get. A complete collection of pillows, comforters and mattress pads are offered under the Dorm brand as well as a line of Sleep for Success! Dorm with Allergy Protection products featuring SilverFill® down alternative, for a natural defense against bacteria, odor and fungus. Products are packaged with the sleep tips booklet “How to Get Eight Great Hours of Sleep” taken from Dr. Maas’ newest book “Sleep for Success! Everything You Must Know About Sleep, But Are Too Tired To Ask.”
“Dr. Maas’ research tells us that a good night’s sleep is instrumental to children’s and young adults’ success, and we’re excited to offer bedding to help them achieve their full potential,” said Bob Hickman, United Feather & Down, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
