We couldn’t ask for a better introduction for our products into the international market, and they were both certainly well-received.
Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) September 30, 2011
4moms’ Origami, the world’s first power-folding stroller, is the first product by a U.S. company to win an Innovation Award at Kind+Jugend, the largest juvenile products expo in the world. Determined by a panel of industry experts, the Innovation Awards are highly prestigious worldwide, and the winners represent the industry’s best new products.
Since the competition began in 2005, the Origami is the only product by a U.S. company ever to take home an Innovation Award. Almost as rare is the event that one company have two products in the finals, and 4moms’ just-announced playard, the Breeze, was a finalist as well. The Origami won the award in the “World of Moving Baby” category, and the Breeze was a runner-up in the category for the “World of Baby Furniture.”
“It’s a real honor to receive this award for the Origami, and to have the Breeze in the finals,” says Rob Daley, CEO of 4moms. “We couldn’t ask for a better introduction for our products into the international market, and they were both certainly well-received. We were first-time exhibitors at Kind+Jugend, and we had the great problem of having so many interested buyers they didn’t all fit in our booth at once.”
4moms also exhibited their products at the All Baby and Child Expo in Louisville, Kentucky last weekend, where the Breeze’s U.S. premiere as the only playard that opens with just one simple motion made waves and the Origami continued to attract attention. 4moms’ Origami Stroller will launch in the U.S. in January, and internationally this summer. The Breeze Playard will launch in the U.S. this summer, and internationally in winter 2012.
Frequently referred to as “the Apple of the juvenile industry,” 4moms began with a focus group of five moms from Mt. Lebanon, PA, who inspired the company’s name (but 4moms sounds better than 5moms, so one mother took the title “The Stealth Mom”). Their experience, plus the expertise of a team of twenty-two engineers, researchers, and developers gives 4moms its innovative edge in the field of juvenile product design.
4moms is a brand of Thorley Industries LLC, a 5-year-old company that develops and markets products for the $7.0 billion juvenile products industry. For more specifics on all 4moms’ products, visit http://www.4moms.com
