NORTH HILLS, Calif., Nov. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Munchkin, Inc., leading designer and manufacturer of infant and toddler products, today announced its "Help Me Babyproof" Facebook campaign, a month-long contest encouraging fans to share stories and photos to describe why they need help babyproofing, for a chance to win Munchkin's new line of safety accessories.

"At Munchkin, we know that a parent's instinct is to protect their little one from the moment of birth. We're launching a new line of safety accessories that will help encourage parents to babyproof long before their child's first step," said Steven Dunn, chairman and CEO, Munchkin, Inc. "By planning ahead to install our new safety accessories on cabinets, drawers and doors, parents can be assured that their child is protected prior to the first curious grabs, crawls and steps."

Munchkin's new safety accessories offer contemporary features that are new or improved in the marketplace, such as smooth, no-grip plug covers to prevent a child from tampering while also offering a camouflage look for the home, and drawer and cabinet latches that are more child resistant than other single-latch designs. Many of the new childproofing tools are also customizable, to help conceal potential safety threats specific to a parent's needs.

  • XtraGuard™ 4-Pack Soft Impact Corner Cushions (SRP $7.99): Secures sharp corners on household furniture to protect from potential falls and bumps, with an internal crumple zone that collapses under impact to absorb energy

  • 4-Pack Corner Cushions (SRP $7.99): A rounded foam corner design provides maximum protection, and combines with Straight Edge Cushions to provide complete edge and corner protection
  • Complete Edge and Corner Cushion Kit (SRP $19.99):  An all-in-one corner and edge cushion solution that secures both straight and curved tables, counters and more
