Parents Gear Up for Baby with American-Made Products
Spongex, the market leader in thermoplastic products, recently launched its American-made baby gear collection, Soft Gear™ at the company's new website www.softgearbaby.com. Designed for the parent on-the-go, this specialty line of foam-based products is available nationwide for infants and toddlers. The range of products are dishwasher-safe, antimicrobial, and lightweight, designed for dinnertime, naptime, changing time, and bath time.
The 100 percent American-made products pass the highest international safety standards and inspections, including CPSIA and ASTM-compliancy.
“By some estimates, if each American spent just one percent—18 cents—more per day on American-made goods, it could create 200,000 new jobs,” says Richard Henry, Soft Gear national sales manager.
Soft Gear products are latex-free as well as mold and mildew-resistant. The products are comfortable, durable, and contain an antimicrobial agent that prevents microorganisms from degrading the product. When germs accumulate on competing products, they grow overnight; in contrast, many germs decrease or actually disappear on Soft Gear products, according to the company.
Soft Gear products, including booster seats, kneeling mats, changing pads, nap mats, and placemats, are available in a variety of attractive colors. Suggested retail pricing includes Soft Gear Booster ($39.99), Soft Gear Placemat ($9.99), Soft Gear Kneeler Pad ($9.99), Soft Gear Changing Pad ($24.99), Soft Gear Nap Mat ($29.99), and Soft Gear Deluxe Nap Mat ($39.99).
