Summer Infant, Inc. Launches New Kenneth Brown Baby Bedding Collection

WOONSOCKET, RI--(Marketwire - February 23, 2010) -  Summer Infant, Inc. ("Summer Infant" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: SUMR) today announced that in a continued partnership with Kenneth Brown, one of today's hottest celebrity designers, they have launched two new Kenneth Brown baby bedding collections at Babies R Us. Unique to these collections is the accessibility Kenneth has provided in the Designer Workbook included in every bedding set purchase, as well as step-by-step video instructions.

One of Los Angeles' most sought-after interior designers, Kenneth Brown has long been acclaimed for his ability to blend warm Southern hospitality with clean Southern California lines. His design firm is ever expanding and works with high-profile clients such as Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens and Mia Hamm. His firm is also working on larger scale hospitality projects. His work has been featured in numerous design publications, as well as on his two hit TV shows, HGTV and Fine Living Network's reDesign and TLC's Over Designed.

"It's important the nursery reflect you as much as your new arrival," states Kenneth Brown. This year Kenneth will be expanding his infant bedding and accessories line. Inspired by the birth of his first daughter, the line combines Kenneth's trademark sophistication, with a softer aesthetic that captures the elements of a custom-designed nursery. Having a strong belief that all budgets deserve good design and everyone deserves to live a beautiful life, Kenneth has introduced two new collections at Babies R Us -- Jumping for Joy and Sweet Stitches.

Jumping for Joy targets a universal "unisex" appeal for moms and dads awaiting baby's arrival before finding out if it is a boy or a girl. Jumping for Joy also serves as a great alternative for multiple babies, such as boy and girl twins, who will be sharing the same room. Sweet Stitches is very girl savvy with pops of color and is intricately adorned with distinctive aesthetics such as hummingbirds, playful swoops, and other charming details; that also serve as great accents for completing Kenneth's designer look throughout the room.

Rounding out the design experience for consumers is the Designer Workbook and online tools available at www.summerinfant.com/kennethbrown. Available on the website are step-by-step video instructions for completing several different looks per each collection. Consumers can also download his Designer Workbook for specific instructions on how to get the final look he has achieved through a simplified process any mom or dad can do at home. Links to Kenneth's site, Facebook page, Twitter posts, and more, expand consumers accessibility to Kenneth for design trends and tips.

"The unique accessibility Kenneth brings to these collections elevates this baby bedding launch above and beyond what consumers have come to expect," states Jason Macari, President and CEO of Summer Infant. "It has been a pleasure working with Kenneth to develop a comprehensive product and marketing program that provides consumers with a complete solution when designing their baby's nursery."

The Jumping for Joy and Sweet Stitches bedding collections are available now at Babies R Us nationwide.
