The Diaper Pail by Munchkin® receives glowing reviews!

MOMS PREFER THE ARM & HAMMER™ DIAPER PAIL by Munchkin® 2 to 1 OVER THE DIAPER GENIE® II Independent National In-Home Study of 100 Moms Reveals They Prefer the Arm & Hammer™ Diaper Pail Based on Overall Performance, Ease of Use and Odor Control

NORTH HILLS, Calif. (Sept. 29, 2010) Munchkin, Inc., designer and manufacturer of clever infant and toddler products, today released results from an independent research firm, which found that moms prefer the ARM & HAMMER™ Diaper Pail 2 to 1 over the Diaper Genie® II by Playtex.

An independent research firm designed and managed an in-home test of the two products during June and July 2010. Participants, which included randomly chosen mothers with children in diapers throughout the U.S., were provided with both products to test in their homes under real life conditions for seven days each. Results indicate a clear preference for the ARM & HAMMER Diaper Pail.

“At Munchkin, we always look for ways to make the lives of moms easier. ARM & HAMMER Baking Soda has been trusted for generations for odor control, so we incorporated it into our revolutionary diaper disposal system to help today’s moms maintain a nursery free of odors,  said Doug Gillespie, Munchkin Vice President of Marketing. “We are proud that the innovation we have delivered to this category has once again proven to deliver such meaningful results for parents.

The ARM & HAMMER Diaper Pail neutralizes odors in the nursery through a patented odor control system with the power of ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda at its core. For more information, visit
