Pully Palz to Launch in 2013

Pully Palz, a pacifier retriever toy, will launch early next year. Pully Palz is a pully system that holds a pacifier on each arm, so when a baby pulls one side, the other side goes up. This allows the baby to never lose his or her pacifier. Pully Palz does not come with pacifiers but holds most major brands. Parents can choose from three different plush toys: a cow, monkey, or frog. The toy attaches to most car seats, strollers, and bouncy seats. The pacifier retriever will be sold at Babies “R” Us, Bye Bye Baby, The Baby Depot, and Amazon.com. For more information,...
