Angelcare® was founded in 1997 by a first-time father who quickly understood how worrying it could be to care for a newborn child. Dissatisfied with the selection of baby monitors available to them at the time, founder Maurice Pinsonnault and his wife wanted a monitor that could go one step further. One that could detect movement, especially the subtle movements babies make when they sleep. And so, with cutting edge technology and hard work, Angelcare®’s first baby movement monitor was born.
In early 2005, Angelcare developed an innovative diaper pail system that changed the lives of parents all over the world, putting an end to the smell of dirty diapers. In that same year, Angelcare formed a partnership with Playtex to market the technology under the Playtex Diaper Genie brand name in North America.

The innovative concept of the nappy pail is growing in Maurice Pinsonnault's mind and he sees the potential for the soiled litter cleaning. The bin is therefore undergoing some adjustment and Angelcare® launches the Litterlocker brand on Canadian soil. Playtext aquire the concept for the USA territory and enter the market under Litter Genie.
The innovative concept of the diaper pail set the stage for an expansion into litter disposal systems. The Diaper Genie pail was eventually transformed into the LitterLocker brand for the Canadian market. Following this launch, Playtex then acquired the concept for the US market, and launched under the very successful Litter Genie brand name.
Maurice Pinsonnault, always at the forefront of new trends, aquired in 2017 a French based company: Pabobo. Specialising in nightlights and soothers, Pabobo strengthened Angelcare’s baby care offering with smart solutions for bedtime. Later that year, Kid’Sleep, a famous European sleep trainer company, known for its' ‘’rabbit clock’’, was also acquired.
2019 was a pivotal year in Angelcare's growth. Playtex sold Playtex Infant Care, Diaper Genie and Litter Genie brands to Angelcare. This strategic transaction opened the door to the US market of diaper pails, baby feeding and litter cleaning.
Today, the Angelcare® family products employ advanced technology and innovative, research-based design. They are sold in more than 50 countries, and address consumer needs for peace of mind, quality of children's sleep and pet wellness.
