Simply Chickie is a Winner
The National Parenting Center just announced their Seal of Approval Winners for Spring 2018.
“The Simply Chickie Romper is everything a new parent wants in a romper, something irresistibly adorable and oh so soft to the touch. Add in the fact that this romper is made of 100 percent Organic Cotton and you are just sweetening the deal. Right out of the package it is soft on your baby’s skin but it just keeps getting softer with every wash. The color is neutral, attractive and the fit is great. The buttons are easy to unsnap for access to the diaper. The fit around the arms and legs felt especially comfortable and properly snug to parents. Parents thought the “Just Hatched” text on the front was cute and sweet, especially for a newborn. Tester after tester mentioned that the quality of the Simply Chickie Romper is so superb that they could easily see handing it down to either the next child or a dear friend. Baby clothing is expensive, this is no exception so quality is important when choosing a purchase that has a pretty short shelf life. This price makes it one of those “not for everyone” items, but if money is not your #1 concern, you will be happy you brought this home.” (www.the-parenting-center.com)
Recommended Age 3 – 18 months
“The National Parenting Center’s Seal of Approval program is an independent testing procedure conducted to judge a variety of products introduced and marketed to the parent/child consumer market.
The testing involves a multi-step process conducted over an eight week period. Staffed by the volunteers, the testing facility of the The National Parenting Center gives parents, children, and educators the opportunity to examine a variety of submitted products. The testers are encouraged to play with, build, read about, and judge by the reactions of the children, each product’s quality.
Participants fill out questionnaires for each product they test. Evaluated are each product’s level of desirability, sturdiness, interactive stimulation and other ingredients essential in the make-up of a quality product. Test results are based on both statistical averaging and comments received from the parent/testers.
The Seal of Approval program is designed to continue the efforts of The National Parenting Center, which was chartered in 1989 to help create better informed parents as they tackle the challenges and enjoy the many rewards of parenting.” (The National Parenting Center Website) (www.the-parenting-center.com)
