Munchkin, Inc. Goes Bilingual
New Packaging Offers Spanish Translations for Expanding Hispanic Market

NORTH HILLS, Calif. (January 15, 2004) – Munchkin, Inc., an industry leader in infant and toddler products, announced today that they are extending bilingual packaging to all of their products in an effort to provide more convenience for Spanish-speaking parents and caregivers.

As the largest minority population in the United States, Hispanics represent 13.4 percent of the U.S. population, and according to the Strategy Resource Corporation, will represent 21 percent of the total U.S. population by 2020.

In addition to offering bilingual packaging, Munchkin will also be including bilingual education pamphlets in the Tri-Flow Nipple System packaging. Information provided includes tips on how to transition baby to a bottle, how to bond with baby while breastfeeding or bottle feeding and other important advice on feeding.

“Munchkin has always strived to create innovative products that embrace every child, parent and caregiver,” said Steven Dunn, president and CEO of Munchkin, Inc. “The new bilingual packaging reflects Munchkin’s commitment to the growing Hispanic market and reaffirms our dedication to providing parents and caregivers with useful information and quality products.”
