Shoe laces tip.
See our range of child accident prevention picture books.
Falls are a major cause of injuries in the home, more so than motor vehicle accidents.
See “The Dangerous Road Game” illustrating Harey, the hare-brianed rabbit, tripping over his shoes laces.
Children can easily trip over with untied shoe laces and toddlers love taking shoes on and off. If a large part of your day is spent putting shoes back on your toddler's feet then a simple trick could help. Tie a knot at each end of the shoe lace to prevent them from being pulled out. Also, if the ends become frayed wrap them in a small piece of sellotape and roll them tightly to create a new aglet.
