USER REVIEWS: Garage Safety with Dreambaby

Garage and driveway safety are such an important consideration when you have little people in your life. It only takes a split second for a life changing event to occur.

2018 is the 20th anniversary of Dreambaby® and they are marking the milestone with new initiatives; including a campaign that sees Dreambaby® join forces with the Georgina Josephine Foundation (GJF) to help highlight the dangers around driveways and garages to children.

The Georgina Josephine Foundation was set up, in part, to prevent and reduce unintentional injury or death of children caused by lowspeed vehicle run over accidents. The foundation was established in 2011, after Peter and Emma Cockburn tragically lost their baby daughter Georgina, at 15 months old. Peter, a builder, came home from work and was reversing his builder’s trailer into the garage of the family home when tragedy struck.

Garages are used for much more than just a place to park vehicles; they are used for storage and as a workshop as well. All of these functions pose very real risks to small children. The only failsafe way to keep children safe in the garage is to ensure that they aren’t in the garage.

Dreambaby® have an amazing range of safety products to help keep your children safe in and around the house and garage.

We sent a small selection of products to some of our members to trial. They are great products for the garage but they would work just as well inside the house.

Dreambaby® StrollAway pram hanger (#256) RRP $39.95

Prams are an invaluable addition to the household when you have little children but they aren’t really used at home so it’s important to have somewhere safe and out of the way for storage. I don’t know about your little ones but mine love to climb in if it is sitting around, then there’s the risk to fingers from catching. A great way to store the pram is with a Dreambaby® StrollAway pram hanger, you can hook it to the back of a door inside the house or up out of the way in the garage.

Dreambaby® Ezy-Fit Door Knob Cover 3pk (#908) RRP: $8.95

Securing door handles is a fantastic way to help keep children safe because if you can stop them getting into the rooms where dangers lie then the risks are immediately greatly reduced. A simple and tool free way to secure door handles is with the Dreambaby® Ezy-Fit Door Knob Covers. These are easy to install on most round door knobs and the best bit is there are no tools required. These can be used to prevent access to bathrooms, laundries and garages as well as any other room in the house with a round door knob.


 

Dreambaby® Multi-Purpose Latch (#126) RRP: $6.95 Dreambaby® Angle Lock (2 Pack) (#133) RRP: $7.95

Dreambaby® has a great range of locks and latches perfect for use in the house and garage to secure cupboards, cabinets, toilets – the options are almost endless. These are easy to install and require no tools.

Children learn by watching, and if yours are anything like mine they work this sort of thing out pretty quick. If you use a wide range of different locks and latches that use different locking mechanisms it will take them longer to get through the defences.

  1. Our family was so lucky to get to trial these fabulous products by Dreambaby. We have four children under 10 including a two year old. The Dreambaby StrollAway Pram Hanger is awesome. As soon as I received it, I popped it over the door in the garage and the stroller is hanging up beautifully. Great for a visual reminder being right near the car and also great to get it off the ground,…looks so much more tidier. I wish had one 10 years ago for my firstborn. The Dreambaby Ezi-Fit Door Knob Cover…another great invention. At first I was a sceptical and thought we would have no use for them. Our two older kids came home from school and were giddy with excitement as they put them on their bedroom doors to keep our little toddler out. Why didn’t I think of that?! It is working a treat…they can shut their door before school and everything is the same when they work into their bedrooms that afternoon. The Dreambaby Multipurpose latch is keeping our fridge firmly closed from prying little fingers. Thanks again, I will definitely be recommending Dreambaby products to my friends, family and whoever else wants to listen to me. 🙂

  2. I was super excited to be selected to trial these fantastic Dreambaby® garage products! I have a one and a half year old so ensuring she is safe is really important.

    We store all our bikes, sports equipment, ride on cars etc in the garage so being selected to trial a range of the Dreambaby® garage safety equipment was perfect as baby proofing the garage was on my list of things to do.

    Firstly the Dreambaby® StrollAway pram hanger (#256) RRP $39.95. is fantastic! This was the fist item to get installed on the wall and is used everyday! It is extremely easy to instal (I did it myself!) and because it is on the wall it doesn’t take up much space. We have two prams so we hang one of them on there regularly and it helps to keep it away from floor dust and is sturdy and safe. The pram I use for walking is hung up there regularly;ary and it is easy to place the pram up and remove it safely without injury! This product is a must, particular if you are space conscious in your garage!

    The second product was the Ezy-Fit Door Knob Cover 3pk (#908) RRP: $8.95. Unfortunately none of the door handles in our house are knobs so these could not be used so we passed these onto the grandparents who have used these for their garage doors to ensure it is safe when my one year old comes to spend time with them. If you have garage door knobs I would highly recommend this product as they are clear so blend in and make it impossible for toddlers to get into the garage, keeping them safe.

    The next two products I received was the Dreambaby® Multi-Purpose Latch (#126) RRP: $6.95 and the Dreambaby® Angle Lock (2 Pack) (#133) RRP: $7.95. It was great receiving two different cupboard locks as if our todler eventually works out how to open one, the others are different meaning that it is harder for them to get into the cupboards. We used both of these products between the Landry and the garage to ensure that cupboards cannot be opened by our toddler. These are both easy to open for adults which is great as I have used baby proofing latches/locks in the past and have struggled to open cupboards and draws myself! I particularly like hot the Angle Lock which I have placed in the Landry for our corner cupboards.

    The Dreambaby® products above are all extremely easy to use and instal and I would highly recommend them if you are in the middle of baby proofing your garage and house from your little ones.

    Thank you Beauty and Lace and Dreambaby® for letting me trial these fantastic products!

  3. Any parent that has any doubt in what safety products to purchase for your home, this is your answer! The products I was lucky enough to trial on behalf of dream baby and beauty and lace are quality, easy to use and easier to install.

    The multi purpose latch proved most useful in our household, restricting our daughter to open cupboards with fragile items. There were 2 different kinds of locks which meant that it she was somehow able to open one, she doesn’t know how to open the other.

    The over the door strollaway was another big hit in our household, making it super easy to pack the pram away and ensure it is out of sight with no clutter. It was out of reach from my toddler and freed up some space for me to store other items.

    The door handle covers came in handy and kept little hands off the door knobs and from opening the doors.

    It has been a pleasure trialing these products. I highly recommend them to any household looking to child proof their home with ease!
