Pampers Continues Its Ongoing Celebration of Babies Unique Spirit of Play with Olympians and Moms, Jennie Finch & Dominique Moceanu, and Their Families09:00 EDT Monday, August 13, 2012 CINCINNATI (Business Wire) -- Having performed on the world's largest athletic stage, the Olympic Games, Olympians Jennie Finch (softball), Dominique Moceanu (gymnastics), know a thing or two about the importance of play. And as the London 2012 Olympic Games draw to a close, Finch and Moceanu, both moms to tiny tots, are teaming with Pampers to pay homage to Team USA while continuing to celebrate the unique spirit of play found within each and every baby. Pampers Limited Edition "USA" diapers and wipes combine utility and aesthetics, so little ones can explore and conquer their world through play, while also amping up team pride before, during and following the London 2012 Olympic Games. (Photo: Business Wire) “As an athlete – and a mom – it's such a joy watching my little guys figure things out while they play,” said Finch, a mom to two sons (ages 6 and 1 years old) who is also currently expecting her third child. “They're exploring the world, learning, and growing. Watching their happy faces and their own individual spirit of play as they discover new things makes me smile. Their openness to learning as they figure out something new, or my little guy's determination and look of pride as he learns to walk and balance, inspire me.” “Babies truly are champions at play,” added Moceanu, also a mom of two (ages 5 and 3). “Transitioning from an athlete to a coach, I now better grasp the significance that equipment can have on a child's athletic prowess and performance. So as a mother, I naturally want the best for my little athletes at play. That's why I adore Pampers Limited Edition ‘USA' diapers, which not only offer performance, but a unique style that extends support to our Team USA athletes beyond the Olympic Games.” To continue the celebration of play, beginning later this month, Finch and Moceanu will be appearing on Pampers social media channels sharing the many ways in which they incorporate play into their everyday lives with baby. The Pampers “Spirit of Play” video series, which will be showcased at www.YouTube.com/Pampers, will feature an array of content, including: Parenting in Play — watching your little athlete explore and conquer their world through play is inspiring and in some ways, contagious. Moceanu will share how her children inspire her through their own play, and the many ways she infuses their play into her personal routine. Spirit of Play Date – with two little ones at home (and a baby on the way!), Finch knows a thing or two about hosting a play date. Here she will offer up simple tips for how she celebrates play with her friends, family and little ones - and even gets in a workout herself! Pampers Playground – Finch will provide a tutorial of the newly launched Pampers Playground microsite, a place where parents can socialize and share with one another, while being provided fun tools and games to celebrate baby play 24/7. Pampers Limited Edition “USA” diapers and wipes combine utility and aesthetics, so little ones can explore and conquer their world through play, while also amping up team pride before, during and following the London 2012 Olympic Games. The diapers feature an adorable “USA” logo print combined with red, white and blue stars and stripe designs while the wipes packaging pays tribute to Team USA with a similar design. Our Pampers Limited Edition “USA” diapers and wipes are running out, but be assured you can still trust Pampers Cruisers with 3-Way Fit for the same performance. Pampers Cruisers are available in sizes 3 thru 6 year-round and feature a soft quilted backsheet and fun design, allowing baby to play their way.
