Soft Gear™ Offers Safest American-made Product on the Market
TARBORO, NC, Aug. 17, 2012 -- Approximately 4 million Bumbo Baby Seats are being recalled after dozens of reports of infant skull fractures. The Consumer Product Safety Commission says babies can wiggle out of the seats in what marks Bumbo's second recall since 2007. In an effort to provide the safest and most dependable children's products on the market, Soft Gear offers My Booster, a seat for children 3 years and older.
"We want to make sure consumers know there are safe alternatives available," says Curtis Hughes, President of SPONGEX, manufacturer of Soft Gear products. "Soft Gear is driven by an unwavering commitment to provide parents with safe and fun products for their children. Our patented 'surface securing elevation seats' for our boosters are a clear demonstration of that commitment."
Soft Gear is proud to provide 100% American-made products that pass the highest safety standards and inspections, including CPSIA and ASTM compliance. Soft Gear products are latex-free, mold-resistant, easy-to-clean and dishwasher safe. The patented suction cups on the bottom and the hand holds on either side of the Soft Gear My Booster help prevent children from slipping and falling. Comfortable and durable, My Booster is also anti-microbial which prevents microorganisms from degrading the product or affecting the child's health. My Booster is lightweight and transportable, and is made for children 3 years and older.
Soft Gear is available in a variety of attractive colors at Target.com, Amazon.com, Diapers.com and select specialty stores across the country. The unique Soft Gear product line includes comfortable and stylish booster seats, changing mats, nap mats and place mats.
