Oyaco Products Inc.: New Back to School Product: Hold-On Handles Keeps Children Close-by and Safe

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Aug. 17, 2011) - The route to school just got a little easier – and safer – for parents with multiple little ones to keep track of. Now available in Canada, Hold-On Handles is a stroller and walking accessory that keeps up to three children safely connected to mom or dad in a fun and stylish way.

Hold-On Handles, designed for children ages 18 months or older, features a short rope that can clip on to strollers, wrists or belt loops at the parent end, while the other offers a whimsical, colourful handle that children befriend and want to hold on to. It frees up mom or dad's hands to push the stroller, hold the bags, or open doors. Even something as simple as being able to free a hand and signal to cars your intention to cross a street, can be accomplished with more ease and safety with Hold-On Handles.

Hold-On Handles is distributed to online and specialty children's retailers across Canada by OYACO, a distributor of innovative maternity, baby and children's products. President, Narda Simpson, knows first-hand the challenges of keeping more than one small child safely in tow. "As a mom of three young children, including a set of twins, I can't tell you how many times I've had to drop the bag or let the door crash into someone or worse, when I've had to scramble after a wandering child," she said. "Hold-On Handles certainly meets one of my needs, and that's one of the best litmus tests I have as a distributor of innovative children's products."

Although Hold-On Handles has an immediate safety and organizational benefit, the product is additionally designed to engender positive long-term behavior. The system does not force children to stick close to mom, rather it teaches them to. So, unlike restraining harnesses or "leashes", with Hold-On Handles children learn to stay "in line" and "hold on" without unpleasant physical restraints.

Hold-On Handles is imported from US manufacturer Greater Than One Kids LLC. Double Hold-On Handle sets retail in Canada for $33.99, single handle sets for $23.99, and spare handles for $12.99 each. To find retailers in your area visit www.oyaco.com.
