Summer Infant, Inc. Proud to Be an iParenting Media Award Winner

WOONSOCKET, RI--(Marketwire - September 13, 2010) -  Summer Infant, Inc. ("Summer Infant" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: SUMR) has been awarded The 2010 iParenting Media Award for both their Slim&Secure™ Handheld Color Video Monitor and SwaddlePod™. This program is a premier media site focused on parents that honors products for outstanding achievements in the juvenile marketplace. 

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. This is the second time Summer Infant has received the iParenting Media Award within the video monitor category. The last award was received in 2009 for the Best View Handheld Color Video Monitor. 

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 have 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 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 baby's movements, yet helps contain their arms and legs if started to ensure sound sleeping. The SwaddlePod is available at Babies "R" Us, Buy Buy Baby and other specialty stores.

"Having just won another prestigious award for the Slim&Secure and the SwaddlePod, adding the coveted iParenting Media Award to the list is a great testament to these well-crafted products," states Jason Macari, President and CEO of Summer Infant. "As a company, we continually strive to make our products stand out amongst a sea of choices. It is a wonderful thing to be recognized for not only our hard work and dedication, but also to know that our products are truly making a difference in the lives of parents and their babies. We would like to thank iParenting for the awards and their reviewers for this honor."
