New York, NY, March 24, 2014 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- StrollerTraffic.com, the weekly email for city moms with kids under 3, has announced the winners of its 3rd annual Cribsie Awards, which recognize the best products, services, and websites for babies and tots as determined by the public. The select group of winners and honorees were revealed on March 7, 2014.
“The Cribsie Awards have grown exponentially since our inaugural program in 2010, and we’re thrilled to commemorate this year’s most coveted baby products with our expanding community of passionate and opinionated moms,” said Tara Mandy, StrollerTraffic.com Publisher and creator of the Cribsie Awards.
Over 150,000 unique votes were cast for this year’s general Cribsie Awards, sponsored by Diapers.com. Out of the thousands of products nominated by the parenting community, 50 recipients across five categories – Nursery, Fashion, Gear, Play, and Mealtime – were honored with awards such as “Coziest Swaddle Blankets,” “Coolest Baby Label and “Handiest On-The-Go Snack Holder.” Charitable partner The Honest Company matched each vote with the donation of one diaper to Baby2Baby, a not-for-profit that supplies families in need with essential baby gear and clothing for their children up to age 12.
