Pull-Ups Brand, parents’ potty training partner for nearly 25 years, is kicking off the New Year with a new high-tech tool to help the approximately 4 million moms who will start potty training this year make the process more fun and easy. The brand has launched a new and exciting app – the Pull-Ups® Big Kid App. It is a fun mobile tool that integrates imagination and reality via augmented reality technology to keep mom and child motivated throughout the potty training process. With 74 percent of Moms letting their children regularly play with their smart phone1, the Pull-Ups Big Kid App is the perfect tech-friendly tool that Moms can access and use as part of their highly mobile lives.
To provide extra motivation for Moms and tots to start potty training and share their first flush… and every flush after… successes, Pull-Ups is launching a fun consumer call-to-action. Parents can go to Facebook.com/Pull-Ups and upload an image of their tot’s first flush moment for a chance to have their picture posted on a billboard in the middle of New York City’s Times Square, during a larger-than-life celebration on Jan. 29. In addition, by uploading the photo, one lucky family will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to a world-famous Orlando destination.
“Moms see potty training as a pain in the neck, so they delay starting the process or they start and stop if setbacks occur,” said Pete Sawin, Pull-Ups Brand Director, Kimberly-Clark. “After years of experience, we know the key to success is keeping mom and child encouraged along the way – which we’re doing by asking her to get started, have fun by sharing her first flush successes, and keep going with tools like the Pull-Ups Big Kid App.”
Pull-Ups has always offered tips and advice in a way that is most relevant to moms’ daily life. With moms spending more than 6 hours a day on their smartphones2, uploading pictures of her tot’s successes and using an app that helps with potty training fits perfectly into her routine.
