Pull-Ups Training Pants

Pull-Ups redirects here. For other uses, see Pull up.
Pull-Ups is a brand of disposable training diapers made under the Huggies brand of baby products. The product was first introduced in 1989 and became popular with the motto "I'm a big kid now!" The training pants are marketed with two packages: boys' designs are blue and currently features patterns from the Disney movies Cars and Toy Story; girls' designs are lilac with Disney Princesses.

History

  • In 2000, Pull-ups added wetness indicators on each pair to tell whether or not the wearer is wet.
  • In 2002, Pull-ups introduced easy-open sides, which caused a controversy amongst parents, some calling them a convenience, others a "glorified diaper."
  • In 2005, to compete with Pampers, Pull-ups divided into two separate products. The original style was called "with Learning Designs" and the new style "with Wetness Liner" to compete with Pampers' Feel N' Learn product. The wetness liner helps the wearer to tell the difference between wet and dry by actually feeling a "wet" sensation for a few seconds.
  • In May 2006, another new line was released, titled "Night*Time", which feature extra absorbency. Also, a feature called "Cool Alert" replaced the "Wetness Indicator" line; kids who wet the Pull-up activate material in the training pant, creating a cooling sensation, letting them know they are wet.
  • The jingle that was used in the original late-1980s and early-1990s commercials was recycled for the product's most recent commercials.
