MUNCHKIN INTRODUCES SAFETY GATES LINE WITH DESIGN APPEAL
NORTH HILLS, Calif. (March 21, 2011) A baby’s first step is an exciting and joyful moment for parents. This milestone marks a child’s growing independence, but also signals the need for additional protection and safety measures in the home. In the past, safety products were often bulky and an eyesore – incompatible with most home decor. Recognizing that parents should not have to sacrifice style for safety, this month baby product manufacturer Munchkin is launching a new line of infant safety gates that provide the ultimate in both function and design.
Offered in multiple styles and price points to fit every parent’s needs, the Munchkin EveryPlace® Safety Gates are available in a variety of mounting options and finishes, such as glossy white, dark wood or aluminum. These aesthetically appealing, modern gates feature the latest safety innovations such as dual locking handles and optional third lock mechanisms, U-shaped “power frames,” and spring-hinges to reduce impact on walls.
The signature model of the collection is the premium Numi™ gate, which features sleek all-aluminum or dark wood with aluminum finishes that complement even the most stylish home interiors. Years of research and development have led to the advanced technology at its core, making it both safe and easy to use. The Indexed Sizing System provides effortless width adjustments, while the Integrated Tuning System allows adjustment for a perfect vertical fit. The quick release wall mount enables the gate to be removed easily. The dual-locking handle blends discretely for a sophisticated look.
To celebrate the joy of baby’s first steps and introduce the safety gates, Munchkin, Inc. recently launched a social media contest that invites parents to upload funny videos of their baby walking or dancing for a weekly chance to win a Munchkin EveryPlace Safety Gate and other prizes. One grand prize winner will be awarded a Munchkin nursery set (valued at $530.00) and a gift card (valued at $250.00). A second prize winner will receive a gift card (valued at $250.00). To enter, parents must upload their photos and videos to Munchkin’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/MunchkinInc. Interested individuals can also enter the contest via our Twitter page at www.Twitter.com/Munchkin_Inc.
The Numi gate is also known as the LOFT™ gate at some specialty retailers. Munchkin Safety Gates are available at mass and specialty retail stores nationwide. They range in price from $49.99 to $129.99, and make the perfect registry gift.
