Toddlers toddle. The type of furniture will be the deciding factor. If you have heavy furniture, no problem. If you have light, easily moveable furniture, secure it. Toddlers get bumps and bruises no matter what you do. Don't fall for every marketing hype about securing your home for kids. They WILL find a way to get hurt. Watch them. When you see what they are doing that you don't want them to, figure a way to either secure it or keep them away from it. One of the best inventions we found, is the spring loaded hook and eye. It is cheap and esy to install and the little ones don't have the strength or coordination to pull the safety clip to the side while lifting the hook.

YES! it's really important. All the time I hear of freak accidents where a bookshelf falls on a baby. It's a horrible accident and we should try to prevent it from happening by anchoring everything down!

How To Decorate aToddler Bedroom


Maybe your toddler is moving out of a crib and into a new toddler bed, or you've recently done some decorating. Either way, here are some wonderful ideas to transform a boring bedroom into a great kid friendly space.

  • Think ahead - this issue is an important one. Don't get so lost in decorating a toddler theme for your kid that they will grow out of it and you will need to re-decorate the following year. Likewise, if you have a girl toddler and newborn baby boy who will be joining his sister's room in the future, don't go crazy with pink and girlie themes.
  • Themes - this can be a really nice way to decorate the room especially if your kid has a particular interest or character that they love. But be careful - kids are very fickle and they can easily go off the things they loved with a passion the month before. So if you want to add Spiderman to a room or Barbie, try and keep it subtle or use stickers that can peel off if necessary.
  • Storage - don't forget to put plenty of storage space in the bedroom as this will help keep the room looking good. You don't want to give your toddler loads of space to play with toys but nowhere to put them away at the end of the day. There are some really funky storage drawers on sale lately but if you're on a budget, you can always buy some second hand furniture and strip it down and re-varnish or paint it. You can buy some colorful glass draw handles or stencils to paint on patterns to the furniture and it makes all the difference.
  • Finally - make it comfortable - the most important feature of a bedroom is whether it's a comfortable space to play and hang out with friends. Use bean bags and cushions or toddler sofas to create a relaxed space that your child will enjoy using.

Good Luck.

Need to know where anchor points are in 1989 Mitsubishi Starwagon or do I need install them


Hi
In a 1989 model vehicle it is unlikely that there will be integral anchor points such as IsoFix. You should contact Mitsubishi to discuss with them whether there are anchor points available in this vehicle or whether they can be retro fitted. Please note in order to meet standard for installing an IsoFix or similar fitted carseat the anchor points must be installed by the vehicle manufacturer.

How to I remove anchors- get a toggle bolt out of drywall?


unscrew the bolt until the toggle falls off into the wall cavity. Then just pull out the anchor and spackle over the hole.
A molly bolt is a similar type of wall anchor. It's often confused with a toggle, but a molly's "bendable" legs are part of the anchor and will remain in place when the bolt is removed. Sometimes you can straighten those legs out by unscrewing the bolt partway, then pushing it back into the wall cavity. If you're lucky, you might be able to pull the anchor out through its own hole. If not, you'll have to use a punch and hammer to pound the head just below the drywall surface, then spackle over it.

How can I tell if a cat tree is sturdy enough for my 3 cats and my toddler?


I would suggest leaning against it. If it can support your weight, it should be able to handle the cats and your toddler jumping on it.

93 chev astro needs 2 tether anchors,install,location and cost


You can take the van to any Chevy dealer and they will install the anchors. Most will do this for free but some may charge a small fee. If you are handy you can even install them yourself.

there should be a sticker somewhere on the furniture that tells you exactly which set you have. from there you can either email them or call and they will send or fax the instructions. hope that helps.
