Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun Safety Companion for Home Thank you to Step2 for letting me test this item as part of the Step2 Ambassadorship Program.Even though we live on a dead-end road, we have several neighbors that speed carelessly through our neighborhood. I have four children of my own that play outside, and we have other neighbors with small children, as well. I wanted this safety piece in hopes that it would serve as a reminder to others that we have many small children that play outside frequently. I have had this out in front of our house for a few days now, and so far it has seemed to be quite effective! I have noticed the vehicles traveling at slower speeds when passing our home.The KidAlert & Pup has an attractive design and is very eye-catching. It has a sturdy design and was very easy to put together. It only had a few parts to assemble. My daughter is excited to dress it up with various bandanas for holidays.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product. Wish it a little heavier. Got a set of these for myself and a gift for my neighbor as our kids are often playing outdoor and we wanted to have more protection in addition to our supervision. It's great. I wish it can be a little heavier though. The first day I took it out, with minimal wind, it was blown down. still thinking on what to had to keep it more stable. Yet it serves what we need it for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A New Spin on an Old Friend... As a Step2 Brand Ambassador, I got to see an early mock-up of this on a trip to HQ last summer. Fast-forward nearly a year, and the finished product is standing guard outside our home, joining the original "Safety Sam" to help alert drivers that kids are at play - and to please, slow down in our neighborhood.With the addition of the little pup, this new helper is a unique spin on the classic road signs, and the kid itself looks more unisex - so it could be a boy or girl.The one area of criticism I can offer is that the plug for the water (or sand) used for weight is placed vertically on this model, allowing some of the water to leak. On the original KidAlert! V.W.S., the water plug is horizontal. I'd have given this five stars if not for that.Regardless, the KidAlert & Pup V.W.B. is an absolutely essential item for families - particularly those that have children playing in the front of the house, near the road.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Choice This little green guy was so easy to put together my son that I am trying to protect could have built it. I am really happy. I feel a little bit safer already as it's made people slow down while driving by a lot more than staring daggers into their eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It makes a very thoughtful, loving gift. I purchased a kid alert for my great niece for her 4th birthday. Her parents loved it of course, loved the idea that if it serves the purpose of making drivers slow down in front of their house, then it is the best gift of all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product at a great price. VERY visible and I like the dog being included. Our grandson already named the dog "Scamper". We use it not only to alert people that our grandson is out playing but also to teach him how far he can go towards the street.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Safety Tool I wish it was just a tad bit heavier without me having to put sand in the base... but other than that it is perfect.(we bought 2, since each year our green man goes "missing")
