"By bringing the infant bedding and plush toy category together we will be able to offer the consumer nursery packages from Bassettbaby," said Lex Bendall, Bassett's vp, juvenile. "It is an exciting and wonderful time in an expectant family's life and Bassettbaby wants to offer products to enhance and simplify the buying experience."

According to Robert Spilman Jr., Bassett president and ceo, the goal is to generate a relationship with the consumer from the time babies are born and cultivate it throughout their lives. "We want to continue to leverage the Bassettbaby brand and grow our juvenile business."

Lucia Fitzgerald, president of Springs Baby Products, added: "Bassettbaby complements our own brand offerings, adding a classic style known for quality and simplicity. Working together we plan to introduce crib bedding that is as comfortable as it is beautiful."

Price points and product specifications are still being worked out.
