Many accidents can happen in just seconds, and Lindam, the UK’s number one safety brand are well aware of this. As a mum to three children, I am well aware how quick children and even babies can move especially when you are not expecting it! I remember back to 2003, my son J was 7 months old and we were at the inlaws, within seconds J had climbed the stairs (he could only crawl at this point and we lived in a flat!) he had climbed his first set of stairs. Not being able to get up there quick enough, he decided to turn around and crawl back down face first…yep, you guessed it, he tumbled the whole way to where we were, arms spread trying to catch him as he came down. Luckily J was fine and no damage was done, but after that we invested for baby gates for the inlaws!
Lindam have many products to help keep your little ones safe, and they sent us through a few products to try out. The Lindam Home Safety Kit and Lindam Safety SunBlock Shade.
The Lindam Home Safety Kit contains 4 plug socket covers for UK sockets, 4 plug socket covers for EU, 6 safety catches, 1 door stopper, 4 corner cushions, 1 multi purpose catch, and 1 appliance latch.
The kid didn’t take much time at all to fit, the plug socket covers simply just push in. The appliance lock we decided to fit on the fridge, and it was simply just a case of peeling off the sticker covering and sticking it down. The door stop just fits around the door, and means no more jammed fingers, especially if you have a toddler like mine who likes to slam the doors.
The corner cushions again just stick onto the corners. I do feel more comfortable having the extra safety catches in place even with a toddler.
The Lindam Safety SunBlock Shade features Patented White Hot Heat Alert, which changes colour when it is too hot. It is easy to fit on the car window, with just two suckers. To use the shade, you simply pull it down. To recline the sunshade back up, just press the button on the side. The vinyl blind protects from UV rays and the awful sun glare too.
