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.
