We talk a lot about moms around here at Graco, but we always remember the pivotal role that dads play in raising children. As Father’s Day approaches (Sunday, June 17th, people!), some of the features on our products that might be particularly interesting to dads are top-of-mind. When we develop products, we incorporate thoughtful details for the men who will forever be heroes to kids as they grow. Here are just a few:
For tech-savvy dads, this product is right up your alley. The Graco True Focus™ Digital Video Baby Monitor offers digital clarity and performance with portable video and audio capabilities as well as vibration notification. Our new system allows you to see what’s happening while your baby is sleeping…or attempting to sleep. And, the parent unit (with a handy clip so you can easily attach it to your waistband) even has vibration alerts, so you can keep an eye on baby, even if you’re doing something loud, like mowing the grass or working on the house (the 1000 ft. range has you covered anywhere at home).
A MP3 speaker system is a new feature on the Graco Pack ‘N Play® Playard with Newborn Napper® Elite. The speaker system can be used to introduce your favorite tunes to baby and control a soothing vibration in the napper and bassinet modes. Of course, all the other features of this product that make taking care of your little one so much easier!
When I work with families to help install the Graco Smart Seat™ All-in-One car seat, many dads are impressed to see the one-hand, height-adjustable headrest with a no re-thread harness that automatically adjusts the harness shoulder position to fit your growing child. It’s simple because there is no need to re-thread the harness. It’s safe because you can adjust the harness with one hand to ensure your child is properly secured. The seat also comes with a convenient stay-in-car base that allows you to install once for multiple modes. The Smart Seat™ also offers on-the-go recline, meaning you can adjust the angle of the seat while the seat is still installed in the car.
There are so many features that we design with dads in mind! What’s your favorite? And moms, if you’re reading this… Now’s the time to start thinking about that all-important Father’s Day present!
Happy Father’s Day!!
