We had the pleasure of attending the Spirit of Play Pampers event last month in NYC where we met Victor Cruz of NY Giants, Shawn Stockman of BoyzIIMen and Olympian Kerri Walsh!
They were there to share their love for Pampers as well as teaming up with Pampers as advocates for active play!
"Did you know that a cruising baby in one day can take as many steps as a marathon runner in a race?"
We sure didn't. Just imagine that. I mean, I know my kiddos are active but marathon runner active is pretty amazing.
"Babies engage in a unique and determined "spirit of play" each and every day through their natural exploration of their world. "
Which is why Pampers decided to bring awareness to the spirit of play and active babies
Pampers believes in "Celebrating Play at every level" that includes our little diaper wearing babies.
Pampers since then has released their newest "play gear" in the form of new Pampers Limited Edition 'team' diapers.
"Today's littlest athletes will be able to sport new diaper designs -- available for purchase in select countries including Russia, China, U.K., U.S. and Japan -- that show off each country's pride, while also offering Pampers same, trusted durable, 3-Way Fit that supports babies as they explore and conquer their world through play."
The kids had an amazing time playing at Kidville in NYC where the event was held. While our kids are potty trained, Pampers was the first brand to touch their bottoms! There was no way we'd miss this event.
With Father's Day just around the corner we wanted to take this opportunity to also talk to Shawn Stockman about being a father of 3 his youngest Brooklyn was there and she happens to be around the same age as our little lady.
We asked Shawn:
What would make your Father’s Day Special?
“Honestly Fathers don’t want much Just some quiet and time to chill… It's good enough to me that my kids love me the way they do. Although Father’s Day is a National Holiday, It doesn't take that day for me to know that my kids love me”
We are so happy to see Victor Cruz and Shawn Stockman be so hands on with their kids. Little Man and Little Lady are lucky to have such a hands on Dad too!
