ABC Fun Pads Develops a child safety product that encourages safe play for toddlers.

According to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, 72,800 toy related injuries occurred in 2005, a drastic increase from just 67,410 in 2003.

With toy-related injuries continuing to rise every year, it’s essential for manufactures to consider “safety first”. ABC Fun Pads developed a fun product with safety as a top priority. The ABC Fun Pad is a furniture pad that fits over your coffee table to protect children from injuries. It is not only protective, but also fun with city scenes and areas for coloring with washable markers.

“After shopping around, researching on the Internet and trying to get referrals, we could not find a product that would protect our child from the corners of our coffee table. Whenever our son was playing in the living room, there was always that danger of a fall that would cause him to hit his head on the table,” said Jody Bridge, creator and owner of ABC Fun Pads. “When we couldn’t find any product suitable, we decided to create one. Our product will reduce the risk of injuries around the coffee table, and it also serves as a toy for children that will entertain them for hours.”

One of the most critical times in a young child's life will be when he or she is learning to walk. With many falls, bumps and bruises coffee tables can become one of the most dangerous obstacles in a home. The ABC Fun Pad helps protect children from most of these injuries, while giving them a safe and fun place to play.

The ABC Fun Pad satisfies a toddler’s curiosity, keeps them entertained and most importantly, it gives moms and dads a little peace of mind.

About ABC Fun Pads

ABC Fun Pads began when two parents searched baby stores and furniture stores trying to find a product that would protect both their coffee table and their toddler. Everything they found was too thin or not fitted and just didn't seem right. That’s when the ABC Fun Pad was developed with safety, fun and convenience in mind.
