Walmart Leans in on Quality Brands in Baby, Reduces Stress for Parents
BENTONVILLE, Ark.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Building on the positive customer response to the Evenflo Advanced
SensorSafe™ Embrace Infant Car Seat, Walmart and Evenflo today announced
they have once again teamed up for a first-of-its kind car seat, now
available for toddlers. The new, exclusive Evenflo
SensorSafe™ Titan® Convertible Car Seat was built with technology
aimed at preventing child vehicular heatstroke, as well as alerting a
driver when a toddler has unfastened their chest clip. SensorSafe™
Technology adds extra protection for children, while putting parents at
ease. The car seat is now available at Walmart stores nationwide and on
Walmart.com, and joins other exclusive offerings from trusted suppliers
in Walmart’s baby department.
“We know parents want the best for their baby and so do we,” said
Diana Marshall, vice president of baby for Walmart U.S. “From a car seat
that alerts parents that their child may not be properly fastened to
organic baby food and natural skin care lines, we’re working day in and
day out to provide our customers with items that make shopping for their
growing families less stressful, letting them focus on what matters most
– their new baby.”
Evenflo SensorSafe™ Technology
SensorSafe™ Technology communicates with the driver in two unique
ways. Upon arrival at the destination, SensorSafe™ Technology will
remind the driver that a child is present in their car seat.
Additionally, SensorSafe™ Technology promotes proper harness position by
alerting the driver if a child has unbuckled their chest clip during
The Evenflo SensorSafe™ Titan® Convertible Car Seat will retail
exclusively at Walmart for $149.
“For several years, Walmart and Evenflo have been working together to
develop and expand the SensorSafe™ Technology product line,” said Mark
Robbins, senior vice president of business development for Evenflo.
“Developing top-of-the-line car seats that give parents confidence and
security while driving with their little ones is a priority for both
Evenflo and Walmart, so we’re excited to now be able to offer
SensorSafe™ Technology on car seats for newborns, infants and toddlers
as part of Walmart’s expanded baby department.”
Making Shopping More Exciting, Less Stressful
As part of its emphasis on baby, Walmart continues to focus on price and
quality brands that give expecting parents and families access to
products they trust at the low prices they expect. This year, the
retailer has expanded its offering of known brands on its shelves in
store and online. New brands available include:
- Baby Jogger
- California Baby
- Ideal Baby by Aden and Anais
Walmart’s focus on private brands is also evident in the baby
department. The retailer’s Parent’s Choice brand has grown to more than
220 items this year with that number continuing to grow. Parent’s Choice
diapers and training pants have become a customer favorite with new
looks for baby featuring favorite characters from DreamWorks.
New parents, with schedules now dictated by baby, might find they are
shopping at odd hours. Walmart can help. The retailer is committed to
providing an easy experience by removing the barriers between shopping
