Between 2008 and 2010 there were 22,000 furniture tip-over injuries to children younger than 9 according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
Furniture safety is not hard and it is not expensive.
A simple strap attached to the wall and the furniture will take care of tip-overs. An “Anti-Tip Furniture Strap” made by Kidco will do the trick and put your mind at ease when it comes to a large piece of furniture possibly spilling over onto your child.
For more ideas on furniture safety please go to “Home Furniture Safety”.

The CPSC recently urged parents to secure their TV’s, furniture, and appliances to prevent tip-over accidents. Between 2000 and 2008 there were nearly 200 reported deaths involving young children. Injuries and death can occur when a child climbs onto, falls against, or pulls themselves up on television stands, bookcases, dressers, desks, chests, and appliances. You can learn more here:
