Step2 Company, in continued support for the efforts of the Saving tiny Hearts Society (StHS), which is committed to funding research on congenital heart defects (CHD), is donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of its Tropical Island Resort water table. This year in the U.S. alone, 40,000 babies will be born with a CHD, making it the country’s number one birth defect. The condition affects nearly 1 million babies each year.
The Tropical Island Resort water table features packaging with tiny hearts superhero Myles splashing it up with his friends. Myles has a scar from his three previous open-heart surgeries—the results of being born with a severe complex congenital heart disease, single ventricle. He is based on the two-year-old son of a Step2 employee.
