Baby Genius® Pet Care Center Named iParenting 2010 Best Product
Latest Recognition is Fourth Award Bestowed on Preschool Toy Introduced at Walmart Stores in August 2009
SAN DIEGO --(Business Wire)-- Mar 22, 2010 The Baby Genius® Pet Care Center has been named an iParenting 2010 Best Product, it was announced by Larry Balaban, CCO of Pacific Entertainment Corporation (Pink Sheets: PENT), creators of the award-winning Baby Genius brand of musical edu-tainment for infants and toddlers.
The 2010 iParenting Award is the fourth award bestowed on the Pet Care Center, which was introduced at Walmart stores nationwide in August 2009 as part of an extensive new Baby Genius toy line. Other awards include Dr. Toy’s 100 Best Children’s Products 2009, The Toy Insider’s Best Toddler Toys for the 2009 Holidays, and The National Parenting Center’s 2009 Seal of Approval.
The iParenting media Award Program provides a credible and objective method of determining the best products. In evaluating the Pet Care Center, reviewers said:
“The Pet Care Center encourages creative role play, specifically in caring for animals/pets, even beyond the single plush that was included. This was particularly applicable as our family just adopted a young puppy. The toy helped to facilitate discussions regarding care aspects for the puppy such as feeding, and the need to periodically visit the veterinarian. The toy is well constructed for the play with active toddlers. As a parent, I was encouraged to see that the puppy and accessories store easily inside.”
“The children loved taking care of the puppy in this set, feeding him, giving him shots. This was an activity that all of the children wanted to join in. The teachers loved that everything came in its own carrying case.”
“This toy had a carrying case which was great to keep all the toys together. The toys themselves also were great to encourage creative play with the children. They used this toy in conjunction with other toys too.”
The musical Pet Care Center offers children hours of enjoyment as they take care of Melody, an adorable, cuddly and huggable plush puppy. There is so much to do for a new puppy – feed her, listen to her heart, trim her nails and giver her lots of cuddles. The excitement begins when a child opens the pet carrier door and hears Melody’s playful theme song. Melody brings happiness into everyone’s lives with her sweet disposition and endless smile. She is an affectionate, constant companion to all the Baby Genius friends. Melody and all the accessories store easily inside. The Baby Genius Pet Care Center is affordably priced at $18.00 MSRP.
The complete line of Baby Genius toys for pre-schoolers ages 12 months to 5 years, is manufactured by Battat.
