You parents today are so lucky when it comes to baby-proofing products. Check out the padding we had to use to protect our kids from knocking themselves on our coffee table:
Yes, bright grey puffy vinyl doesn't go so well with our Mission-style furniture, but we had no choice. We didn't want to stick anything on the coffee table because those sticky adhesives never come off, and lots of the plastic baby-proofing corners might mark the table; besides, they were just as hard as the table! But you lucky parents have better choices now -- you have Rhoost baby-proofing products. Rhoost sent me one of their table corner protectors and one of their cabinet locks to review; here is what I thought of them:
Here is how Rhoost describes their products:
Rhoost makes functional and stylish baby-proofing products while preserving the integrity of our environment. Rhoost is committed to using materials that are BPA, lead and phthalate free and all of our products and packaging are 100% recyclable.
The Rhoost Edge table corner protectors turn sharp edges into furniture fashion statements, keeping your tots safe and your style ntact. Plus, the Edge features a first-of-its-kind strap and lock fastening system.
The Rhoost Sling is a chic and simple way to keep cute and curious hands out of cabinets. Innovative design is easy on parents and big on protection.
The Edge and the Sling are GREAT baby-proofing products, and I wish they had been around when my kids needed them! Installing them on corners and cabinet doors is pretty intuitive and simple, but not so easy that a child could slip them off by himself. I love the matte finish of the rubber; it makes these items much more unintrusive to the eye, and they don't look cheap or tacky.
Thanks to their strap and lock system, you don't need to use adhesive to stick them on, and they don't dent or scratch the furniture. And of course, I love that they are BPA free and lead free, because you just know your baby is going to try and put it in his mouth!
I wish the Rhoost Edge didn't have the brand name stamped onto the top; it kind of defeats the "stylish" benefit when you've got the word Rhoost instead of a nice, smooth surface.
The Bottom Line
Discerning parents will love Rhoost baby-proofing products because they are stylish, yet functional, safe for their precious babies and safe for the environment.
