Home Safety

W
e are all guilty of taking the safety for granted but our homes are extremely dangerous places, especially for under fives. Luckily there are many gadgets to help but mums won’t buy unless they know about them!

Parents often come looking for safety gates and can easily get confused as the the pros and cons of the various types. Clear information is essential whether online or in the shop. They are an essential piece of equipment for every family with stairs and a useful thing for many others. A good range is an important facet of every nursery store.

Customers looking for safety gates also create the opportunity to create add-on sales. There are many useful gadgets out there which won't strain the bank balance but could prevent many an accident.

Apart from safety gates, many retailers think in terms of cupboard locks but there are many other useful items. The newest products are designed to keep little ones safe from slamming doors, something many parents don't think about until they spend the day in A&E with crushed fingers.

Safety gives many opportunities for cross selling. Someone buying a cot? Remind them of nightlights. A baby bath? What about a thermometer?

Too many children are injured each year in situations that often could have been avoided if only...

It’s worth broaching the subject of safety whenever customers come to look at equipment. It’s more important than simply making another sale – though every little helps!!


How ‘small’ is ‘small’?

You’ll have toddlers in store every day, but did you know that even our biggest coin (£2) represents a choke hazard to the under 2’s? The next time someone drops some change, even more reason to pick it up immediately!

It’s well known that small things can be dangerous for young children, but how small is ‘small’? This week we are sending all Cheeky Rascals trade customers a free Choke Tester. You’ll be able to show your customers exactly how small a choke hazard is and start encouraging them to ‘think safe’.

For parents who want a Choke Tester of their own, it’s part of the Fred Home Safety Check Tools. This kit also includes a finger probe, to help parents understand what is and isn’t a finger-trap, and warning stickers to position in hazardous areas of their home. The Choke Tester and Finger Probe have been made to the dimensions specified in European Safety Standards and are the best possible guide for these hazards. Once parents start thinking safe, then baby proofing their home is the next logical step. Next stop, the Fred range of home safety products, see www.fredsafety.co.uk for more information.

Help us to increase awareness of home safety to reduce child accident rates; right now over half of all our under 5’s attend A&E every year as a result of an accident, and most of these occur in the home.

Safe exploring with Adventure Belt

The distress of being separated from a child in a busy location is an experience many parents can relate to, and the dangers are clear to see. Think car parks, shopping centres, country walks, holidays and busy crowd-filled airports.

Adventure Belt, from More-2-Explore, is designed to keep children aged 2+ close and connected when risk exists.

Winner of the BPA’s Innovation Award at Harrogate International Nursery Fair in 2017, Adventure Belt is fast becoming the go to product for safety savvy parents.

“Both my toddler and I love it! It allows him to have some room to move about whilst being close enough to me. I'm much more confident taking him out to busy places now” said one mother, whilst another said: “We love our adventure belt, can't recommend it enough! Makes life so much easier with our non-stop toddler.”

Launched in response to increasing demand for customers wanting to keep their children safe in busy or challenging situations, More-2-Explore works by physically connecting parent and child belt-to-belt. For parents, there is hands-free peace of mind and for children a sense of independence.
A RRP of £15.99 means Adventure Belt is an accessible safety product, which is loved by parents and children alike.
