Animal Plug Covers

Animal Plugs: Kid Friendly or Are You Kidding?

There's something about an electrical outlet that just gets the best of an infant's curiosity. As soon as they are able to crawl around, tots want to know what's up with those slots in the walls.

Most parents plug them up with the standard clear outlet covers, while some opt for tape. The folks at Decor Craft Inc. chose to liven up the options with these whimsical animal plug safety covers. Adults can keep their wee ones' fingers safe with a red dog, blue cat, orange sheep, or green elephant.

Here's my question — are they too alluring, to the point of harm where a child may be more inquisitive than usual?

It looks like some of the animal refrigerator magnets that kids like to play with. No way am I getting that for my nephew's room or anywhere in my house for that matter.

Just to make it clear, though, I do still use outlet covers.

I definitely think they're too inviting. The flat ones that match the outlet totally mask it. We're lucky in that our house is wired to immediately shut down a circuit if a foreign object is inserted or if there's a surge to that outlet. It gives a sharp shock, but it's not life-threatening and ongoing.

I don't think these will last on the market long they look so inviting. Kinda scary.

you could make outlet covers that were more attractive for adults (pretty design) but wouldn't attract kids like animal shapes would

Yeah - I think this is nuts. No way would it not draw kids to the outlets. I can see using them to cover outlets in older kids room as a decoration, but not as a safety device.

All that does is draw attention to them! Stupid idea.

I agree with gab, that's the first thing I thought of once I saw what they were for.

While they are cute, I think it would make kids MORE interested in the outlets!
