goumikids Launches Stay-put Newborn Set


Calgary, AB – We all have it: that collection of single, forlorn mitts and booties all waiting naively for their mates – carelessly abandoned by their infant owners at playgrounds, malls, or in parking lots – to return.   Well, goumikids have remedied the problem so that no mitt shall go unmatched again.


The goumikids newborn set features an infant hat, booties, and mitts all ingeniously designed to go on with ease and, most importantly, to stay on despite the random flailing of little arms and legs.


Part of a new collection launched in Canada this month by Canadian distributor of innovative baby products OYACO, the goumikids newborn set will feature a range of prints that are reversible and can be mixed and matched with additional pieces. The set includes: mitts that prevent baby from scratching his face, booties that actually stay on, and a hat that prevents baby from losing the precious body heat that so easily escapes in those early days. All of the items in the collection are made to be beautiful (mitts and hats are reversible as well), and help remove a pain of early parenting: the continuous loss of little socks, mittens, and hats.


“We’re really excited to bring this high quality brand to Canada,” said OYACO president Narda Simpson. “Their products are completely in line with OYACO’s over-riding principles of quality, value, innovation and environment.” All goumikids products are gentle on the earth and baby; consisting of breathable, naturally antimicrobial and environmentally sustainable materials. The goumimitts are made with a two-part signature closure system that keeps scratches and germs at bay while adjusting to fit as baby grows. In addition, the high-contrast graphics promote infant brain and eye development. The goumiboots incorporate the industry’s first two-part closure for a baby bootie; making it easy for single-handed on and off, but secure enough to stay in place. Unlike other newborn hats, the goumihats come in three sizes (NB, S/M, and M/L) because babies’ heads shift drastically in the early months.

The newborn set comes in three colours: diamond dots, leaves pink and sketch blue.  The pieces can be purchased separately for $14.95 (mitts), $19.95 (booties), $19.95 (hat) each, or as a complete set with all three pieces for $49.95. Complimentary mix and match separates are available in a broader variety of patterns and colours to round out your collection of goumiwear.
