Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) November 20, 2009 -- When Monica Williams, a physician living in Atlanta, first developed a line of pacifiers affixed to stuffed animals, she not only thought she created something special for her daughter, but for millions of other babies too. Two years later, apparently someone else thought so as well, as Williams was one of ten entrepreneurs profiled in Time Magazine.com's Inventors and their Inventions special section. http://bit.ly/Pacimals_in_Time_Magazine

Designed to help infants easily handle their pacifiers, Pacimals is a line of stuffed animals with pacifiers affixed to their heads. Inspired by her own daughter's need for such a product, Williams supports the use of pacifiers in a child's developmental stages.

"My daughter loved her pacifier but kept spitting it out," Williams says. "That's natural, most children will thrust their tongue forward, resulting in the misplacement of the pacifier, but they still want the it and don't have the coordination to replace it. So I started to sew pacifiers onto a bunch of stuffed animals and soon after, Pacimals was born!" she adds.

Constructed from safe silicone, the Pacimals paci is securely fastened to a silicone base that is sewn onto the top of a plush toy's head. The paci can then be easily removed from the base, allowing mom to clean and sterlize the paci or the stuffed animal itself, which is completely machine washable. As the child gets older, the pacifier can be converted to a teething ring and then removed completely, leaving the child with a comforting doll.

"As a doctor, I have seen the benefits of incorporating a pacifier into a child's daily routine," Williams notes. "In the past, parents needed to be on constant pacifier patrol - making sure that the tiny piece didn't fall onto the floor, rendering it useless until it could be cleaned and sterilized. With Pacimals, the stuffed animal provides children with a toy which incorporates a pacifier and therefore makes it easier, more enjoyable and less frustrating for the child and Mom."

The latest line of Pacimals features a collection of adorable characters including a giraffe, lion and a frog and is available at select specialty retailers and online at www.pacimals.com.
