FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PRINCE LIONHEART INC.® CELEBRATES 30 YEARS
Maria, CA (April, 2003) - When Tom and Linda McConnell started
making rocking horses in the family garage, they had no idea that
thirty years later their company, Prince Lionheart, would be one
of the leading manufacturers of baby products worldwide.
During Prince Lionheart's three decades, the company has led
the field with creations to help babies grow up happy and safe.
Their Baby Wipes Warmer was the first of its kind in the industry
and their Original Slumber Bear® is the only audio pacifier
with actual intra-uterine womb sounds to lull babies to sleep
in minutes. They also invented products to make parents' jobs
easier such as the Original Seatsaver®, the first and still
best selling car seat protector, and the Infant Dishwasher Basket™,
the only device available that holds nipples directly above water
jets for the most thorough sanitizing.
Prince Lionheart hasn't just been an innovator of helpful products,
but an innovator in business as well. In 1991, the company opened
their corporate headquarters and manufacturing facility in Santa
Maria, California, where 60 percent of the product line is produced
- a rarity in manufacturing. In addition, the McConnells were
proud to welcome their children to the business. Their daughter
Kelly established a distribution facility for Prince Lionheart
UK Ltd. in London, England, and their son Michael joined the company's
design department and is responsible for the company's new packaging
and marketing concepts.
Those babies back in 1973, laughing as they rocked on handmade
horses, are now having babies of their own. Prince Lionheart,
Inc. is proud to be a part of their families and look forward
to providing helpful products for babies and parents for generations
From our family to yours since 1973™
