I’ve been hearing great things about the Kohl’s Safety Center (located in the American Family Children’s Hospital) ever since my daughter was born, but it took me until this past week to finally check it out. I don’t know why I waited so long! The Safety Center has everything your family needs to keep your little ones safe, and at an amazing price.
Here are just some of the products available (taken from the website):
– Bike and ski helmets
– Child safety seats, including booster seats
– Safety gates
– Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors
– Outlet plugs
– Furniture straps
– Drawer latches and cabinet locks
– Gun locks
– Secure Solutions Childproofing Kit
I purchased a Top Gear bike helmet for Milena for only $10! They had her try on the helmet right there so they could make sure the straps were tight enough and in the correct positions.
The Kohl’s Safety Center is located inside the American Family Children’s Hospital at 1675 Highland Ave. It is open Monday-Friday from 10am – 2pm (closed weekends and holidays). Phone: 890-8043.
And since we’re on the topic of safety, child passenger seat safety checks are available twice a month at local fire stations. The Madison Fire Department partners with the Madison Are Safe Kids Coalition to offer these free (!) checks.
From the website: “These events are used to educate and provide assistance to parents when using Child Restraint Systems (CRS). At each event a team of certified technicians will teach child caregivers and parents the basics of correct selection, use, and installation of CRS. The event also provides the opportunity to detect unsafe CRS.”
We had them install our infant car seat and went back again to have them inspect the installation of our convertible car seat (and it’s a good thing we did, because we didn’t have it in correctly!).
Car Seat Checks are by appointment only. To schedule an appointment, call: (608) 890-8999
