BASE4's "SLAPlets" Win a National Parenting Center 2011 Spring Seal of Approval

Carrollton, TX (May 16, 2011) - Ever have a job serving ice cream? At first it's a dream-job come true. But, in all honesty, after you've scooped your thousandth cone you're ready to swear off rocky road forever. That's sort of what happens to children's product award judges as well. Face it, how many balls can you bounce? So when these children's products experts finally do find an amazing, new concept, they grin from ear to ear. And that's why BASE4's new "SLAPlets™" just received a Spring 2011 Seal of Approval from the judges as The National Parenting Center.

After they got done slapping bracelets onto each other and their children's wrists, here's what they had to say (smiling all the way!):

BASE4 Group Inc - SLAPlets Award Category: Kids Clothing and Accessories
Recommended Ages: 8 and Up
Price: $5.99

"One, two, three, SLAP! That was the sound of bracelets slapping on the wrists of our testers who gravitated to these like moths to a flame. Perhaps it is the variety of colors, or maybe it was the removable links that allowed them to accessorize and personalize their SLAPlet, or maybe it was just the cool effect of these bracelets "automatically" curling themselves around the wrist (no matter the size). All were noted by our testers as favorite features for their kids. Kids (both boys and girls) couldn't wait to show these off to their friends." Made of 100% hypo-allergenic silicone, SLAPlets and SLAPlinx™ are customizable, tradeable fashion that are redefining friendship bracelets. After the successful launch of its first styles in March, BASE4 is already rolling out more sets with a great variety to choose from:

SLAPlets will be available in 4 new colors: Green, Orange, Yellow & Silver, each with three bonus SLAPlinx. Available SLAPlinx accessories include:

  • Sports (Boy and Girls styles)
  • Alpha
  • Number
  • Attitude

The National Parenting Center was founded in July of 1989, with the intention of providing the most comprehensive and responsible parenting advice to parents everywhere. The advice provided is furnished by some of the world's most respected authorities in the field of child rearing and development. The National Parenting Center's Seal of Approval program, created in 1990 as an adjunct to TNPC's support services, identifies the finest products and services being marketed to the parent/child audience. From educational and entertainment products and equipment to travel destinations, the consumer oriented testing process solicits evaluations from parents and their children. This award signifies to other parents that their peers have acknowledged a product's quality and desirability based on a wide variety of determining factors. By any yardstick there is no denying that 2010 was a tumultuous year throughout the world and here at home. As it releases the final Seal of Approval report of 2010, and awards the first 2011 Seals of Approval, The National Parenting Center wants to recognize the hard work and dedication it takes to persevere in a climate and times such as these. The companies and the people behind them have created products and services that really connected with its testers and are deserving of this award as well as the benefits that come with Seal.
