Although I grew up in a household where we didn't watch a lot of sports, the Olympic Games were always an event that was not to be missed. The thrill of the competition, the admiration of the talent, the awe of the wins — there's just nothing like it!
With the upcoming Summer Olympics in London this year, I'm already getting antsy to tune in and watch the amazing feats and accomplishments that are displayed by athletes from all across the globe. While the Winter Olympics are entertaining as well, the sports included in the Summer Games (such as gymnastics, aquatics and volleyball) have always been my favorites.
Therefore, when I heard that Pampers has partnered with two-time Olympic Games Gold medalist (Beach Volleyball) and Team USA Hopeful, Kerri Walsh, to help introduce Pampers Limited Edition "USA" diapers and wipes, I couldn't have been more excited about their choice. I love Pampers and I love Kerri Walsh, it's a perfect combination!
Building off their Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games sponsorship, the world-renowned brand of baby diapers continues its commitment to the littlest of athletes: babies.
From crawling and walking to balancing and tumbling, the efforts babies go to in order to overcome everyday challenges are podium-topping in their determination. To celebrate this unique spirit of play, Pampers' new Limited Edition "USA" diapers and wipes (which will be hitting shelves mid-April) combine utility and aesthetics, so little ones can explore and conquer their world through play, while also amping up team pride during the London 2012 Olympic Games.
The diapers feature an adorable USA logo print combined with red, white and blue stars and stripe designs while the wipes packaging pays tribute to Team USA with a similar design.
Pampers Limited Edition "USA" diapers and wipes designs will be available while supplies last at select stores nationwide, so keep an eye out for them the next time you're out shopping! The diapers are available in Cruisers sizes 3, 4 and 5 and are truly very cute.
The Pampers Limited Edition "USA"wipes are just as colorful, festive and fun!
In celebration of these great products, Pampers has also launched a Facebook sweepstakes of 'podium-topping' proportions. Now through May 19th, parents can visit the Team USA Sweeps tab on the Pampers Facebook page and register for a chance to win the grand prize trip for a family of four to attend the London 2012 Olympic Games and attend the first ever Pampers Playground event alongside Kerri Walsh and her husband and sons.
Additionally, Pampers will be randomly selecting weekly winners between now and August 12th to receive a prize pack consisting of one month's supply of Pampers Limited Edition "USA" diapers and wipes as well as a souvenir volleyball signed by Kerri Walsh. A trip to the Olympics? Free diapers? Don't miss it!
In addition to the Team USA Sweeps on Facebook, those wishing to celebrate the spirit of play at home are also encouraged to visit the Pampers Playground, a newly launched interactive platform on the Pampers website encouraging parents and caretakers to share all the ways babies love to play. Within the Pampers Playground, there are three sections for parents and little ones to explore together:
- The Picnic Table gives parents the chance to upload and share photos and videos of all of the different ways their baby likes to play.
- The Toy Box provides visitors with fun tools and games to help baby play each and every day including an interactive and original storybook.
- The Park Bench offers articles detailing the importance of play for little ones.
