Columbus, Ind. and Foxboro, Mass., September 9, 2009 – Dorel Juvenile Group USA (DJG USA), a division of Dorel Industries (TSX: DII.B, DII.A) and the nation’s largest juvenile products manufacturer, today announced that its Safety 1st® Infant Health and Grooming products are now available at Target® stores nationwide and at Target.com. This thorough product assortment offers parents innovative healthcare solutions and must-have essential items to care for their children.
Safety 1st’s infant health and grooming offering at Target is designed to meet parents’ every healthcare and grooming need for their children. The line includes five different thermometers, ranging from the ProGrade Complete Family Thermometer ($39.99) that the whole family can use to the Digital Pacifier Thermometer ($7.49) for baby. Parents on the go will appreciate the three options of healthcare and grooming kits available, each packaged in convenient, attractive travel cases. Individual grooming items, such as an Easy Grip Brush & Comb and Fold Up Nail Clippers are available, as well as solutions for cold and flu season, such as the Newborn Nasal Aspirator and Filter-Free Ultrasonic Humidifier.
Target is also offering the Safety 1st ProGrade™ collection, which was developed in conjunction with experts in both fields to create innovative product solutions for everyday parental needs. The company’s inspiration for the ProGrade collection came from overwhelming research that parents’ needs are changing, and health items for children must adapt accordingly. The ProGrade infant health line leverages the company’s relationship with medical professionals from local children’s hospitals.
“Safety 1st is pleased to offer its infant health and grooming products at Target stores and Target.com,” said Vinnie D’Alleva, general manager of DJG USA. “This placement makes our products easily accessible to families across the country at a price they can appreciate.”
