Yookidoo Parsippany, NJ (February, 2010) –(Virtual Press Office) - International Playthings announces its new additions to the Yookidoo line of infant and toddler toys. Through rewarding play, exploration and discovery, Yookidoo provides children with the tools that they need to flourish in their ever-changing, always surprising world.

This year the Golos-Weisman design (GWD) team has broadened their infant offerings with four new concepts that are perfect for newborns and delightful to adults. The GWD team has an incredibly in-depth understanding of how infants experience their brand new environment, enabling them to create infant toys that are familiar and new, soothing and exciting, and nurturing and challenging. From the cradle, to the playroom, to the bath tub, there's a Yookidoo toy for every kid and every situation.

“Yookidoo’s new infant toys are exciting additions to the existing line of innovative products,” said Ticia Will, senior brand manager at International Playthings, LLC. “With our new items, the Yookidoo brand is branching out into new directions, yet remaining true to the distinctive Yookidoo look and quality that have been so well received by retailers, children and parents alike.” The 2010 Yookidoo product line includes:

It’s also the perfect place to store the adorable rattling giraffe plush toy that comes with it! The lights and music are activated by an easy to operate switch that parents and can babies push to activate—great for teaching babies important lessons in cause and effect. Plus, there are three different play modes: one plays soothing music for 10 minutes before switching off on its own, one plays stimulating music for ten minutes before switching off and the other is activated by baby and plays short clips to encourage her to play it again.
