Summer Infant, Inc. Honored With The National Parenting Center's 2010 Seal of Approval

WOONSOCKET, RI--(Marketwire - August 31, 2010) -  Summer Infant, Inc. ("Summer Infant" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: SUMR) has been awarded The National Parenting Center's prestigious Seal of Approval for 2010, for both their Slim&Secure Handheld Color Video Monitor and SwaddlePod™. The National Parenting Center (TNPC) is America's leading parent advocacy organization and one of the country's top evaluators of quality products for children. 

The Slim&Secure Handheld Color Video Monitor was introduced in November of 2009 and is one of Summer Infant's best selling items. The video monitor category is one in which Summer Infant has a proven track record for exceeding expectations. While Summer Infant has received many prestigious awards for their baby monitors, this is the first time they have been bestowed The National Parenting Center's Seal of Approval in this particular category.

The Slim&Secure Handheld Color Video Monitor is small in size, and sleek and stylish in design. Similar to the look and feel of today's hot, new portable handheld devices, parents are now able to keep an eye on their little one in style. Not only does it feature a 2.5" color LCD screen with automatic black and white night vision, but it also works on 100% digital technology to provide a secure and private connection. Available in two colors -- silver and pink -- the video monitor device includes a rechargeable battery, providing parents with the reassurance that they will be connected at all times. The Slim&Secure Handheld Color Video Monitor is sold exclusively at Babies"R"Us stores and online at

Known for the SwaddleMe®, Summer Infant expanded their line of safe sleep swaddling and wearable blankets to include the new SwaddlePod, which is defined best by its name -- a perfect little swaddling pod! Simply zip baby into the pod to create a cozy, womb-like environment. Developed together with leading safe sleep experts, the SwaddlePod is ideal for very young infants. It is made from a soft, spandex and cotton blend that stretches with a baby's movements, yet helps contain their arms and legs if startled to ensure sound sleeping. The SwaddlePod is available at Babies"R"Us, Buy Buy Baby and other specialty stores.

"We are thankful to The National Parenting Center for recognizing the efforts put forth behind not just one of our items, but two of the staple products in our lineup," states Jason Macari, President and CEO of Summer Infant. "Our baby monitors and swaddling products have always represented a large and important piece of our business. We work hard to make sure we deliver the best to our end consumers and make life all that much easier for moms, dads, and caregivers who are looking for thoughtful solutions. Again, we are honored that The National Parenting Center has given our Slim&Secure Color Handheld Video Monitor and SwaddlePod their 2010 Seal of Approval."
