SOUTHBOROUGH, Mass., Nov. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --The Vicks Starry Night Cool
Moisture Humidifier (V3700) is now available in two new colors – purple and
green – exclusively at select Babies"R"Us stores nationwide and online at An ideal year-round addition to any nursery or child's bedroom,
the new colorful humidifiers offer parents vibrant and cheery choices when it
comes to providing temporary relief to their little ones' congestion, cold and
cough symptoms. Doubling as a night light while releasing invisible cool
soothing moisture into the air, the Starry Night humidifier's built-in,
independently controlled projector depicts a glowing night's sky on walls and
the ceiling, helping lull kids to sleep.


"I regularly recommend cool mist humidifiers to parents at my practice looking
for relief from coughs and congestion," said Dr. Jennifer Trachtenberg, MD,
FAAP, pediatrician at The Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York and Fellow of
the American Academy of Pediatrics. "The Starry Night model gives moms and
dads peace of mind as it helps soothe common cold-weather symptoms, and kids
love falling asleep to its colorful changing moon and star patterns."

Humidifiers help counteract the effects of harsh, dry air, and can bring
temporary relief to kids' irritated noses, flakey skin and chapped lips. In
fact, The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends using a cool mist
humidifier throughout the winter months to help relieve congestion and coughs
for youngsters. Additionally, new research suggests that homes kept at 40-60%
relative humidity can help reduce the survival of the flu virus in the air and
on surfaces such as sink faucets, door handles and countertops.

The new purple and green models join the original version of Starry Night,
available in blue. Best used in medium-sized rooms, Starry Night runs for up
to 24 hours on a 1 gallon tank and features multiple output settings and quiet
operation. For added relief, the humidifier's built-in scent pad heater works
with Vicks Soothing Vapors VapoPads, available in original Vicks menthol and
Sleepy Time lavender and rosemary scents, for enhanced, non-medicated comfort.
