Beijing apartments come in so many shapes and sizes, but most are not necessarily made with child safety details in mind. You probably already have medicine and glass breakables on high shelves. Ditto for installing a smoke detector and your doors and balcony windows are hopefully shut tight, but what else should be baby proofed? Here are some useful, sometimes really cute, items you can find on JD.com to make your apartment extra kid safe and give you and and your family extra peace of mind.
What an adorable baby prison! Unfortunate PhotoShop job, but this divider gate (RMB 158) is good for keeping toddlers away from hot stoves in open kitchen plans, or separating them in safe spaces when they are too big for cribs. It has a strong built-in tension rod for stability and easy set up. A spacer (RMB 43) is available in case you have a wider door frame.
These anime-style cute door bumpers (RMB 32 for two) are great at preventing smashed fingers. With double sided tape on the bottom along with a swivel base, these kung fu boys can be attached to a door near the edge, making it impossible to slam. When you want to lock or close the door, simply twist it around so it’s feet no longer stick out. Painless, good design, which is also useful for prevented slammed doors on small pets.
Resembling the Nerf-like material pool noodles are made of, this soft foam material (RMB 46 for a four meter long roll) is perfect for wrapping hard corners and edges on furniture, especially low level pieces like coffee tables, TV benches and nightstands. There are five different colors to choose from and enough double sided tape is provided with each order.
Babies and electric outlets really don’t mix, so prevent accident injury with these surge protector lock boxes (RMB 32 each) These are also great for hiding cords or cellphones while charging. White could be a better color choice than bright red or teal in that it might not be as attractive to your child.
Got furniture that won’t lock? Try these stretchy childproof lockable straps (RMB 39 for a pack of three) with 3M double sided tape on each end for easy installation. The buckle clicks into place and can be opened by squeezing the top and bottom and pulling, something that is nearly impossible with baby’s hand eye coordination, but mommy can do in a snap.
