Customer ReviewsRated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Mr. Slow We live at the top of a hill, on the bend of a road which encourages cars to speed up to make sure they make the hump. Mr. Slow really brings attention to drivers that little people are present and they slow down and drive further from the sidewalk. We place him on top of my car so both sides of the hill can see him. My husband suggested putting sand in the base rather than water which may discolor our fluorescent friend – so far we haven't had to, as the sign is really stable. I would highly recommend Mr. Slow. Additionally, our 20mth old girl loves him and kisses him every day too. For the sake of cuteness alone the purchase was worth it Date published: 2009-09-26Rated 5 out of 5 by OV from Really does slow down cars! Safety Sam really does work great. We put SS out only when the children are playing outside, and cars really do slow down, whereas they would not before, even when the children were playing in the same area.When assembling, I could not get the "foot" into the base. I called customer service, who said to take a blow dryer to it to soften the plastic a little. I heated up one of the nubs in the base that the foot snaps onto, and sure enough, the foot snapped on no problem.It's durable and, even when the base is filled with sand, is easy to move around.Date published: 2014-01-13Rated 5 out of 5 by Mom of a speedy quick two year old from We named him 'Busta' Since our yard doesn't have a fence around it, we put Busta at the corner of the property when our 2 year old is outside playing. Several teenagers live on our street and always screech around the corner without slowing down or yielding. We named him Busta because as soon as the teens come down the street, they hit the brakes and slow down - busted. Very effective at making drivers aware children are around and to slow down and look. We bring him inside unless we are in the yard so the neighbors don't get used to seeing him and forget to slow down.Date published: 2010-05-28Rated 5 out of 5 by safety mom from "safety sam the celebrity" We live on a very busy and dangerous school crossing route. We have set the safety sams up on both sides of the crosswalk. It helps with the crosswalk visibility and slows people down. They have become very well known in our area. Only down side is people steal them all the time. There was one missing again this morning. ARGHHH!! It gets expensive replacing them and can be a bit of a pain to find them where we live. But, they are worth it. We have tried so many signs etc to slow people down but these worked right away and had the best visual effect you can see it from 2 blocks ahead.Date published: 2015-02-04Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from This is a GREAT product! The Kid Alert Visual Warning Sign is a wonderful item to remind drivers to watch their speed in cottage country, cul-de-sacs, beach areas, or private drive-ways while children are at play, or where Seniors are at risk as well. Nothing says it is just for Kids Safety you know! The one support foot snaps on easily and may be filled with sand or fine gravel to add more stability.This is an attractive figure, a friendly way to remind drivers to drive SLOW. Reflective decals (incl.) enhance the display nicely. Add your own reflective digits to indicate speed i.e. 20 km.Date published: 2012-08-16Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Great Product Great Service! I use it on my yard. It is very cute. I notice that after I have it out, one neighbor bought it too. I really want everybody with kids on my street to have the same. The shipping was very fast. I thought because it was Christmas week I wouldn't get it on time for our family party, but I did! I was very happy! The only concern is to keep it safe. We don't leave in the safest place on earth anymore... Things have changed... So I put a steel chain around de waist and around the palm tree and tied up. Maybe this is something that should be added to a future design!Date published: 2014-01-14Rated 5 out of 5 by Wild Child's Mommy from Thought a kid was darting in front of me I had to hunt it down to buy one! We live on a private circle with small yards. One of our neighbors had this sign among other rectangular signs. Though I try to be careful, several times I missed the rectangular signs only to have a knee-jerk-hit-the-brakes response to the appearance of a child running toward the street. The child sillouette is especially great during the twilight hours that can be so dangerous. Although the flag sounds like a bit of a problem, as a driver, I cannot even remember if the sign had one or not, so it must not be that important.Date published: 2009-01-24Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from EXCELLENT KID ALERT PRODUCT GREAT product to get people's attention that there are children playing in the area. We place it at the beginning of a circle that people tend to speed around even though it is a condo complex and not a public road. Neighbors know there are children that may not be seen until the last minute, but they still speed so this is used at the entrance as a reminder. We do not leave it up 24 hours a day, but only put it out when the kids are outside; otherwise, the drivers will get used to seeing it and ignore it over time.Date published: 2014-09-17
Q & A
Hello, we purchased 4 step2kids for our school but we cannot place the bases on them. Is their a certain way to insert them?why would a staff member of step2 tell us to call customer service? Why not provide the info that customer service provides when we waste 10 minutes to call? I just got off the phone with customer service and I was told the following: use a hair dryer to head the notches or use dish soap to help lube the parts. The chuckles from the c.s. rep lead me to believe this is a common issue so why not address it here, in the QA section, or save us all some time and add it to the directions? So extremely frustrating.Date published: 2018-11-07
How big is SS?About 2 1/2 to 3’ We love it we put it just outside our driveway innsteeer in our neighborhood since we have so many kids we put water in it to weight it down. You can use sand if you want. Date published: 2018-10-31
