Review and Giveaway: Dreambaby® Furniture Anchors

      I wrote this post while participating in a campaign by Tomoson and received a gift and or payment to thank me for my time. All views and opinions with regard to the products or company itself are my own and were not influenced nor reviewed by the company prior to posting. I am disclosing this according to the FTC guidelines.





       Now that Xavier has mastered the art of walking and running he is working on jumping and climbing. The jumping so far I am not too worried about. However, the climbing always makes a mom nervous. It is hard to think of all the things he can get in or on top of, or even use as a stair to get up higher.




       Children under the age of five years old are at risk for injury due to furniture falling on them. As crazy as it sounds the furniture and televisions we buy today are made sleek and lightweight so they can easily fall on children who climb on or near them. Televisions are falling on children all over the place due to not latching them properly. At the tender age of two your child can open and climb drawers and dressers; which are not as heavy duty wood as they used to be they topple over easily. Try out your furniture for yourself you will see how easy it tips and you may consider getting some furniture anchors. I would highly recommend any one with children or even who takes care of young children that they get some anchors for their furniture.
     We had already anchored our television when we did the first child proofing, but now that Xavier is getting around and into things more I wanted to make sure some of our other things were secure. My main concern was Xavier's dresser. He now can open all the drawers and even puts his clothes away in them. However it is so lightweight it would fall the minute he tried to climb it. We decided to try out the Dreambaby® Furniture Anchor which is perfect for securing items such as dressers, bookcases and cabinets to the wall. It will even work in earthquakes. It works with two parts that you screw into the wall and into the dresser (screws and bolts provided, screwdriver not, we recommend using a powered screwdriver/drill). 



You also screw another one of these into the wall. 






Next, you position the furniture and slide in the stainless steel attachment and screw on the bolts and it is all finished. We lined it up straight, but you can do it on an angle if you want to. Also, I had Nick help me with this as I am not very handy, (plus picture taking as well), but it is very easy to do with the great instructions provided and anyone can do it. We were extremely pleased with it and now we have peace of mind and all it took was about fifteen minutes. 





       We also tried out the Dreambaby® Furniture Straps which were also easy to install and install the same way instead they are cloth not stainless steel. What is nice about these straps is if you do not want to screw into the furniture you do not have to you can rest them on it and they hook and hold once you pull the strap taunt. It is recommended that you check to make sure the strap is taunt from time to time to ensure their strength.







     Dreambaby® is a company that started out mainly in Australia and now is in 80 different countries and growing. They design products that not only make your home safer to live in but to make your life easier. 
      We were big fans of the Dreambaby® Furniture Anchors and they were so easy and for the price  you cannot beat them! My only complaint is they are hard to get in the United States right now you have to order off of their Facebook page. That is why they are only getting 4 Stars otherwise they may be more highly ranked.
