4 A Kid is a fantastic online store, founded by Ally Cohen, a mother of two small children. They focus primarily on child safety items and products that make parents’ lives a little easier – and who couldn’t do with that! They sent me a few of their products to try out.
The Secure-A-Kid Safety Harness is such a brilliant product! Seat Belts are made for adults, not children, so if a booster seat is not used, the seatbelt sits at the wrong height to be effective for children under 12 years old or less than 1.5m tall.
Using a seatbelt is non-negotiable in my car and the children have always had car seats and booster seats. But using a booster seat when you’re in Senior Primary school is really not seen to be cool. So my 9 year old was very excited to try out the Secure-A-Kid Safety Harness. He loved it! It is very easy to install (he did it himself – I checked it, obviously) and would be easy to move from one car to another. I even tried it out for myself – I am what some would call vertically challenged, and always find that the passenger seatbelt cuts into my neck. The safety harness is really comfortable!
They also send me a pink Shampoo Cap which is designed to keep shampoo and water out of baby’s or toddler’s eyes and ears during bath or shower time. It is made of soft EVA foam and is really easy to put on and use. And it really does what it says it does. My daughter loves it and the water just flows right over the edge, away from her face. Much to my sons’ hilarity, she bears a striking resemblance to the Statue of Liberty when she wears it 😀
The last item they sent was Legruffles by Huggalugs. These have to be the CUTEST things ever. They are basically ruffley legwarmers that can be worn by babies or big kids on arms or legs. As a child of the 80’s and an avid watcher of ‘Fame’ I could not wait to put these on my daughter! They are gorgeous! They stay up really well but give more mobility and freedom for a crawling baby than tights do; and they don’t have to be removed and put back on at nappy change time which is a huge plus for me. I love them. They come in all different colours and patterns and are suitable for both girls and boys.
