Exceptional Swaddle Design Wins Leading Children’s Safety Product Accolade
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
BOSTON, MA (October 24, 2012) – The Zen Swaddle™ by Nested Bean, the only infant swaddle that encourages sleep by mimicking a caregiver’s touch, has been named the recipient of the 2012 Innovation Award by the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA). Voted on by media, industry retail buyers and baby gear experts alike, these annual awards put children’s products from all categories to the test, and honor a select few for their excellence in producing inventive items developed with children’s safety in mind.
The JPMA reviewers highlight products that kids love while being safe and productive for them to use. The Zen Swaddle™ was evaluated on industry-leading criteria based on quality, safety and functionality. The Zen Swaddle™ is the first swaddle product of its kind, which has a weighted construction that harnesses the proven power of maternal touch to help soothe and comfort infants while employing the benefits of swaddling. Lightly weighted parts apply gentle pressure, along either side and on the center, to provide the security of being in parents’ arms. The 2-in-1 design offers longer use as the interior pouch keeps legs snug up to 23” while sack offer sample room to grow up to 26”.
“We are privileged to have been honored with the 2012 JPMA Innovation Award,” said Manasi Gangan, owner of Nested Bean, “The JPMA selection committee looks for top-notch products enhancing children’s safety, and knowing that they have seen this in the Zen Swaddle™ makes us extremely proud as our mission is to continue to develop leading products that are safe and improve children’s well-being.”
