Some great safety tips!!
Our business is child safety and we sell Anti Tip TV Straps. Sadly 3 children every week in Qld alone are injured by tip over injury.
The straps are on display at the Kidsafe Demo house in Brisbane. You can also purchase through Kidsafe at the Brisbane or Canberra shops. The straps secure the TV to the furniture or wall and retail for $22.95. They are also available at www.motherknowsbest.com.au
As we work closely with Kidsafe some other great tips they have passed on to us are:
* Dont encourage the use of your driveway as a play area. Always make sure an adult is holding your child or the child is in the car with you, when you move the car. - Sadly many children every year have been killed by driveway accidents.
* Make sure the pram brake is on! Prams can roll away so easily.
* Keep batteries away from little children. If swallowed the can cause horrific internal burns.
* Make sure your TV is as far back as possible. Dont put toys or other objects a child will reach for on the TV or stand. Ensure the TV is wall mounted or secured with straps on a stable TV stand. Make sure TV cords are out of reach. Make sure doors or draws are removed or secured to stop them being used as steps.
