Products to Keep Our Kids Safe:

When I was a kid, I remember having full rein of our neighborhood. My sister and I would take off on our bikes or on foot, especially during the summer (this was Michigan, after all), and the only rule was that we return home when the streetlights came on. My parents never thought twice about our safety or choice of location. They knew that we’d stay out of trouble and, most of all, that we’d come to no harm. Alas, those were the good old days. These days -- whether there is actually more danger or we just perceive there to be more -- most of us wouldn’t even consider letting our kids freely roam the neighborhood or be away from home for more than an hour or so without checking in by cell phone. We’re just much more concerned about our children’s safety these days.

So, I was really excited when I stumbled across a company called My Precious Kid, which specializes in products that help protect our children. My Precious Kid was started by Kay Green, a mother (of course), and has grown from a small online business that she started out of her home in 2001 to a recently acquired storefront office in Hillsboro, Oregon, with four employees. They ship 40-60 orders a day from their line of 120 child safety and baby gear products. Of course, I can’t begin to mention all of the products that they carry, but some of my favorites are:

• a DNA/fingerprint kit
• ID bracelets
• allergy labels
• seat belt adjusters
• cold packs
• bath tub alarms
• locks for refrigerators, toilets, etc.
• DVDs about safety
• folding potty seats and potty toppers (great for public restrooms)
• baby sleep positioners
• shopping cart covers
• BPA-free sippy cups
• kids’ dog tags
• …and much, much more!

They really have an amazing array of products, whether you’re expecting a baby, childproofing your home, planning a trip or teaching your kids about safety. Visit their website at or call 800-381-4577 to learn more about their products. Save 10% off your first online order at by entering voucher number 10WTR09 before March 31, 2009. (One coupon/discount per household.)
