coverPlug – a Review & Giveaway (Ends 2/17)

I had the opportunity to do a review for coverPlug. These are such a fantastic idea! And I *love* that you can paint it to match the walls.

We have one outlet in our living room that the kids are attracted to like a magnet. I’ve caught Jace trying to stuff Batman’s hands (and other items) into the outlet, and Lucy is always trying to see if she can stick her fingers in there. I used to use those little covers that you stick in the outlet. They were difficult to pull out at first, but then the plastic in them weakened, and the kids could pull them out easily. It’s not very safe if your toddler can pull out the “safety cover” and stick it in their mouth. Then the safety issue becomes an entirely different issue… now it’s a choking hazard! What’s a mom to do?

Well, let me introduce you to coverPlug! These things are awesome! From the moment I put the coverPlug over the outlet, the kids haven’t messed with it at all. They say “out of sight, out of mind,” and they are completely right! It’s still easy to pull out when I need to vacuum, and it pops right back into place. The best part of all? The kids can’t pull them out…. but they have even tried to! They walk past the outlet a hundred times a day now and never even glance in it’s direction. I love it! These are fashionable, affordable, and one of the coolest child safety products on the market. I’m never going back to those awful little plugs. Never.

So, how can you get your hands on your very own coverPlugs and be the coolest safety conscious mom on the block? There are 2 ways: 1.

    I really love that it can be painted to match. I’m intrigued by the idea of painting them in fun decorations, like switch plates, but that might encourage toddler exploration.

    These are a great idea! I love that they look so seamless on the wall when painted to match. Great idea! My only question is what about when you only need one of the outlets…. what happens then?

    My tip:
    Use toilet locks!! It’s easy for a child to open the lid and lean over to explore and fall in, but it’s almost impossible for them to push themselves back out.
