KidSwitch REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY


The Story of KidSwitch:
"KidSwitch was created, developed, and brought to you by 
the father of a sweet and adventurous two year old little 
girl, named Taylor.  

In 1993, Taylor lived in a small house on the Balboa 
Peninsula in Newport Beach, California.  Although it was 
"Sunny Southern California" her bedroom did not receive 
much light because the houses around hers were so close 
that they simply blocked the sun from her bedroom 
windows.  Since she was too short to reach her light 
switch, she was constantly asking her dad to come and 
turn the light on for her.  And, the light would often be left 
on all day because she couldn't reach it to turn it off.

One day, Taylor set out to turn on the light herself.  She 
built a makeshift "ladder" out of some of her toys.  
However, because Taylor was only two years old, and did 
not have an engineering degree, the "ladder" did not work 
and she fell, thereby suffering a slight injury.

After her fall, Taylor's dad did not want her to keep making 
"ladders," did not want to have to keep turning the 
bedroom and bathroom lights on and off for her all day, 
and did not want to simply leave the lights on all the time, 
so he set out to find a better way to help Taylor safely 
reach and turn on and off the light switches.

After several different attempts, the mechanics of how to 
attach the switch and the design for the switch took 
shape, and Taylor's dad began the process to patent, 
trademark, manufacture, and sell KidSwitch.

It all began that day in 1993, when one dad wanted to 
help his own daughter safely reach and turn on and off her 
room lights.  Since 1995, KidSwitch has been providing a 
helping hand to little ones and their parents.  We are 
happy now to extend that hand to you!"

Our Opinion: I wasn't sure at first what we would think. The day we received it in the mail the hubby gave it a good look over and said he thought it was really neat. We have a set of light switches in our dining room and Little T isn't quite tall enough yet to turn it on. The KidSwitch makes it so simple he just goes over and gives it a tug. The only problem I have found so far is he likes it so much he likes to continuously turn it off on lol.

  39. Like anything kids get, the excitment wears off and you are left with a great tool for them to turn on and off lights.
    Great when working on night potty training. No longer are they afraid to get up in the dark!
    Creates good energy saving habits as they can turn OFF a light when they leave a room!
