RADIUS Named a 2016 National Parenting Product Award Recipient

In In the News on August 16, 2016 at 2:16 pm

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
August 16, 2016

 

Kutztown, PA – Founded in 1990 by LA Parent Magazine, the National Parenting Product Awards (NAPPA) has been the “go-to” source for parents and professionals who are seeking the best children’s products available for the past 26 years. NAPPA, which is celebrated as being one of the longest running and most respected awards programs in the country, has recognized the RADIUS Totz Plus™ Toothbrush as a 2016 NAPPA recipient.

Introduced in 2015, the Totz Plus Toothbrush represents the next stage in RADIUS’ innovative, age-specific approach to the changing needs of children as they move through oral care growth stages. With a cool, non-slip rubber grip and the same ambidextrous handle as the Totz™ Toothbrush, the new Totz Plus is designed to support the next phase of a toddler’s oral care needs as they learn to brush on their own.

“RADIUS has always taken our customers’ demands and feedback into account when designing new products. We heard a huge cry from parents for quality children’s toothbrushes that are made in the USA and we’re thrilled to be able to offer that to our loyal consumers. To have our efforts recognized by such a respected awards program is a great honor and we’re very proud to receive the NAPPA seal of approval,” CEO and President, Saskia Foley said.

NAPPA has a very comprehensive and selected judging criteria and is more than just a seal of approval. Winning products have been rigorously assessed and deemed “best in its class” by a panel of expert judges, testers, and reviewers. NAPPA judges are industry experts who have extensive professional experience working with children and parents.

5 Ways to Prevent Kids’ Tooth Decay

BPA_CURRENT

February is National Children’s Dental Health Month and the American Dental Association® has 5 tips for keeping your child’s smile bright and shiny.

  1. Don’t Share. – It may cause more dishes but avoid using the same spoon as your child. Sharing utensils or drinking from the same cup can transfer cavity-causing germs.
  2. Eat Healthy – Eating fruits and veggies doesn’t just help your child grow big and strong – it also helps their teeth fight off decay. In fact, the first signs of poor nutrition often show up as cavities. According to MyPlate, fruits and veggies should cover half of your child’s plate.
  3. Meet the Dentist Early – According to the ADA, your child should have their first dental visit no later than 1 year old.
  4. Seal of Approval – Ask your dentist about applying a dental sealant to their teeth. Sealants can help protect against decay.
  5. Two is the Magic Number – Make sure you start brushing your child’s teeth as soon as they poke through the gums. When they can brush teeth on their own, have them brush for 2 minutes 2x per day.

Keep up with your children’s growth stages by using the RADIUS Children’s line of toothbrushes. BPA-free and age-specific the Pure Baby®, Totz®, Totz Plus™, and Kidz® Toothbrushes are designed with your child’s health and smile in mind.

No, Seriously…We’re Happy Just to be Nominated

Martha-Stewart-badge2014_style_finalist

Have you ever watched the Oscars, Grammys, or any other award show and thought, “Yea right, I’m sure they’re just happy to be nominated. I don’t believe that for a second?” Well, we’re hear to tell you that being happy just to be nominated can actually happen.

RADIUS was nominated for the Martha Stewart American Made Award (which was super awesome in and of itself) and then imagine our excitement when we come to find out that out of hundreds of entries in our Style category we were a chosen finalist!

We work really hard to make our company and the products that we produce the best that they can be and to have that recognized in such a big way was a huge honor.

The winners were chosen on Friday October 17th and, sadly, RADIUS did not win. Are we a little disappointed? Of course, but we knew the competition was steep and all the companies who did win were well-deserving and we couldn’t be more excited for them. As cliché as it sounds, we were really  honored to be included in such an exclusive group of companies and we congratulate each and every one of them.

Now, with only a few more months left in 2014, we’re looking forward to 2015 and all the the things that it can bring. If we’re nominated again next year hopefully we’ll win, but if not, make no mistake… we’ll still be happy just to be nominated.

To each and every person who voted for us, we thank you so much for your support! We’ll see you again next year.

RADIUS Reviews….Lifefactory!

In RADIUS, RADIUS Reviews It! on December 3, 2013 at 12:45 am

For our second RADIUS Reviews It product review, we had the pleasure of trying out the AWESOME Lifefactory Glass Water Bottles. These are amazing bottles because they keep your drink cold and are also completely BPA Free! Read on for our thoughts!

amanda-toothbrush

Amanda, Social Marketing Associate/Web 2.0 – I’ve actually got to try out 2 Lifefactory bottles and I LOVE them! I have a blue 22oz bottle and a purple Kidz 8oz bottle. Both bottles keep my water extra cold and because of the glass, I think the water tastes extra fresh! The 8oz bottle is perfect for on-the-go! I put it in my bag and it’s just the right size! I currently have the twist caps, but I’m thinking of getting the new Straw Cap because that seems like such a good idea!

sas-toothbrush

Saskia, CEO – I love the taste of the fresh clean water in my Lifefactory bottle! You can taste the difference of not having plastic and it keeps my water cold longer too!

chrissy-new-toothbrush

Chrissy, Inside Sales Manager – I have the gray 22oz bottle that you can sip out of the lid and I LOVE it!!! It’s very convenient to take back and forth to work or just traveling in general!
