As we are getting ready to welcome a new year, we're pausing to celebrate some of SlumberPod's top moments of 2021.
From tripling our product inventory to doubling our team size, we have certainly had a busy year getting our products in the hands of many families who needed them (and who now love them, of course)!
In case you missed it, here's a round-up of our most successful year to date.
WE RECEIVED A US PATENT!
On October 12, 2021, we were thrilled to announce that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has issued U.S. Patent No. 11,140,997, a utility patent in the category of “Crib Accessory,” for our blackout privacy sleep pods for babies and toddlers.
WE INTRODUCED NEW COLOR COMBINATIONS
We were thrilled to offer SlumberPod in some new sleep color combinations, and with the same great features, our fans have come to know and love.
WE ADDED TO OUR LIST OF RETAIL PARTNERS:
OUR SOCIAL COMMUNITY IS MORE THAN 50K STRONG
WE LAUNCHED SLUMBERPOD CARES
Starting this year, each quarter, we donated a portion of our proceeds to causes chosen by our team members. To date, we have donated $20,000. Learn more and see what organizations benefited from SlumberPod Cares in 2021 here.
OUR WEBSITE HOSTED MORE THAN 1 MILLION UNIQUE VISITORS
Including nearly half a million visitors who read our blog articles! Check out the SlumberPod blog here.
WE WON MULTIPLE AWARDS
In March of this year, we were honored that The Mom’s Choice Awards® named SlumberPod® as among the best in family-friendly media, products, and services. You can read more about this award here.
In late November, SlumberPod Co-Founders Lou Childs and Katy Mallory were recognized as Entrepreneurs of the Year by the Greater Columbus Chamber of Commerce. Read more about this honor here.
AND THE MOMENTUM WILL CONTINUE IN '22!
We've got lots of exciting developments on the horizon ...
And as always, we couldn't do it without you. Thank you for your continued love, support, and promotion of our mom-owned, women-run small business.
We don't take for granted the year that we had! Looking forward to an even brighter 2022.
