Keep The Music Alive Tee Wins Silver; Belly Banter Stickers Earn Honors

 

Plainfield, IL (October 16, 2012) – What could be sweeter than being named one of this year's highly coveted National Parenting Publications Award (NAPPA) winners? Slick Sugar, the fashion forward online children's boutique, got a little "sugar on top" when their Keep The Music Alive tee won a Silver plus their Belly Banter line of growth stickers earned an Honors Award.

“Belly Banter stickers are so cute and innovative," wrote one of the 2012 NAPPA testers. "I’m pregnant and I love showing off my belly and these stickers make it even more fun! If you’re looking for a unique shower gift, these are it!”

The NAPPA accolades got even better when judges got a look at Slick Sugar's fun and fundraising tee.
Their Keep the Music Alive top is a “great design on a super soft, 100% cotton t-shirt. Best of all, proceeds go to a great cause.”

Far more than a seal of approval, a NAPPA award signifies that a product has been rigorously evaluated against stringent criteria and stands out among hundreds of other products from around the world. A Silver or Honors nod means the product excels in innovation, safety, quality and "the degree to which they make parenting easier."

Julie Kertes, NAPPA General Manager, explains, “our winner list cuts through the clutter and hones in on only the best baby gadgets, gear and tools so that parents can make smart choices for their families.”

Smart and adorable are these prize-winning products:

Celebrate Baby’s Milestones and Special Occasions
with Latest Belly Banter Stickers from SlickSugar

Plainfield, IL (May, 2012) – Tummy time, that essential time infants spend on their tummies each day, can help baby reach important milestones like sitting up and crawling. When baby reaches a milestone, it’s time for a different type of tummy time—in the form of a photo shoot! Belly Banter’s new Milestone or Holiday stickers celebrate special occasions like the first time baby sits up or crawls, or baby’s first 4th of July or Earth Day. Just place a 4” sticker on any shirt or onesie and snap a photo to lock in the memory of that day. Peel, Apply, Capture, Remember!


Best of all, Belly Banter lets parents celebrate without filling the closet with one-time use outfits. Sure, that Halloween shirt is adorable, but what if he spits up as soon as you put it on (which always seems to happen)? All of a sudden your cute idea was a total waste. With Belly Banter’s Holiday stickers, you’d just peel the Halloween “Boo” sticker off of the soiled shirt and onto a fresh one!

Milestones are another story, because there probably aren’t many shirts available that celebrate baby’s first haircut, or the first time they slept through the night. But aren’t those events worth celebrating? The Belly Banter Milestones are a great way to celebrate the little events. The text on each sticker makes it clear what the event was, so when you’re looking back at photos you’re not left scratching your head wondering what, exactly, you were celebrating that day.
