Customer ReviewsRated 5 out of 5 by Safety Guy Neighborhood Coordinator from Kid Alert VWS I ordered seven Kid Alerts for our neighborhood, and my neighbors reimbursed me upon arrival of their Safety Guy. STEP 2 helped me with the order, and it came promptly to my door. All neighbors have their Safety Guys in the street, to slow down the cars that proceed to drive at unsafe speeds. These drivers are constantly worrying the mothers with small children and others with pets. Unfortunately, with all this good news, my Safety Guy was stolen. Should have written my name in bold letters to maybe avoid thisDate published: 2013-10-08Rated 4 out of 5 by c.s.p. from needs second foot i bought two - the little man no longer comes in green i was told . the little man now only comes with one foot , but to my happy surprise , when i called step 2 customer service , they sent me two more feet , one for each little man i bought , shipping and everything free !!!! the customer service person was fantastic . i bought these two men to try to slow down vehicles on my nice wide neighborhood street . the street is more like a curved boulevard , but cannot be used as a cut-through , per se' , but some inconsiderate cut the turn close on the inside of curve and almost hit my neighbor's kids as well as my driveway apron curb . these little men basically do a good job of slowing down the inconsiderate drivers . you must make sure to drain the water out of the feet in the winter if you live in a freezing area . i suggest always fill the feet (make sure you get the second foot) with either water or sand , or , if it's windy , the little man will spin around and \ or blow down .Date published: 2008-07-10Rated 5 out of 5 by Steph from Love this Neon Child!!!! We had one of these for years while my kids were toddlers. One day, I noticed our old one was missing. I tried to find the best deal and I saw this website was offering a discount code on this item! I was so excited to get a new one, especially at such a good price!! My kids are older now but they ride bikes in the (residential) street in front of our house. I always worry about cars driving too fast or not paying attention. When my neon child is out in the street, I always feel better while my kids play outside.Date published: 2018-06-26Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Safety Sam is a neighborhood staple! We received Safety Sam as part of a Step2 campaign to help "Play It Forward" and keep kiddos safe. He was easy to put together and his bright green color really stands out on the street. The only thing I wish was different was that the red stickers and slow stickers on the sides were reflective so that they better stood out around dusk and evening times, but other than that he's great! Our neighborhood families all have commented on him and how he's helped to give everyone a better sense of security.Date published: 2013-09-09Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Safety Sam is a neighborhood staple!

This little guy seemed to wake people up in a way that actual children did not.Our little guy survived recent Northeaster winds, but did not survive the poor morals of the person who stole him from us last night. I want to buy another, but I don't want to be a target of theft again--Step2 really needs to add a security tether--please!Date published: 2010-03-29Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Terrific Idea We saw one of these in our neighborhood and observed first hand how visible and clever a warning sign it is to passing motorists. We bought two--one for in front of our yard and one for in front of our neighbor's yard across the street. They are highly effective at signalling drivers to slow down.The fact that you only put them out when the kids are playing outside means that motorists don't become accustomed to seeing (and ignoring) them the way they get used to seeing "Children at Play" street signs.They also help to serve as a reminder to the kids playing to look both ways before they go out into the street themselves.I highly recommend these.I did have trouble coming up with search terms to find these on the Internet. "Little green man warning" and searching under "Images" finally led me to the Step 2 web site.Date published: 2015-12-17Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Great Visual Reminder to Drivers Excellent visual reminder to drivers to slow down on a residential street. Product should be made larger in the future - I would suggest that the company double the height. Overall it is a very good safety product to keep in the garage or on the porch, ready to place in or by the street everytime your child/children are outside. Drivers should slow down on residential streets regardless of children being near the street or not. This reminds them to do so.Date published: 2011-05-31Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous from put on the brakes fill with sand before assemblyDate published: 2010-05-16Rated 5 out of 5 by Christo-the-curious from Great Product!-is it a turtle or a kid? *This item is very practical, and addresses an extremely common problem - distracted drivers traveling way too fast through neighborhoods!*An interesting and funny debate has begun within our family however as to whether this 'safety guy' is a kid, a stickman, or maybe even a turtle...anyone have an opinion on this?*Thanks Step2 for another great product, which most certainly has prevented injuries and possibly even fatalities. We appreciate it!Date published: 2011-01-16Rated 5 out of 5 by Mom concerned about children safety from Great Safety Alert - Easy to Use My children place a "Safety Guard" near the street at each end of our property to alert cars of their play. We live on a corner lot so they have been very helpful to alert cars of children at play and to use caution. I have used these Guards for over 5 years and they have held up great and look great. I just recently had to replace the flag because the kids played with it and lost it. I would not want to be without this great product!Date published: 2009-01-27Rated 5 out of 5 by Jenn from Helps keep our kids safe! Very pleased with this purchase. We use it at the end of the driveway when the kids are outside and crossing the road back and forth to the neighbor’s. Definitely needs sand or other weight in the bottom to keep it from tipping over! The kids named it Charlie - so anytime we play in the front yard, “Charlie” has to play too :) The neighbors in our cul de sac slow down when they see him, so it’s working like it should!Date published: 2018-06-01Rated 5 out of 5 by Christian's parents :) from Excellent Product! This is a fabulous product, we put it out on the end of our street every time our 16-month is outside. It's cute and definitely gets drivers' attention without being obnoxious. We definitely recommend this to anyone living in a residential neighborhood. The only drawback is no one carries it in the store anymore so we had to order it online from the manufacturer and then wait over a week to receive it!Date published: 2008-11-23Rated 4 out of 5 by Nika from Worked great till.... This was a gift from my sister in law. We live on the corner of a street, and people speed all the time. The HOA board has addressed it many times, but nothing ever stopped it. So we put our little guy out when we were given in, and it worked great! People finally slowed down. It was working great!!! till, someone just drove by and stole it. :/ how frustrating... We'll definately be replacing it.Date published: 2010-07-28Rated 4 out of 5 by Chico from Have purchased one for neighbor, too. Even with sand for weight in the base, I used tent pegs to hold the base firmly - and still, it was stolen in broad daylight on a Sunday morning. I put it out because of elderly person with hearing deficiency who walks between my house and the neighbor's and who retrieves the morning paper and mail from close to the road - there are no sidewalks. ...Effective for slowing most drivers, but not all.Date published: 2009-10-16Rated 5 out of 5 by SafetyFirst from Simply Safety for your Kids Even in the nice family community that we live in cars still race by. we purchased 2 of these signs to put on both ends of the street so our kids along with the neighborhood kids can safety play on the street. We notice a difference right away with the first car that came by. Your child's safety is priceless, but this was the most inexpensive and durable signs I could find. Thank you Step2!Date published: 2014-09-05Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Kids alert NWX Bend Or We live in NWX in Bend or, we have a lot or cars the speed, my kids play out in the front yard, since we enacted the signs, traffic has slowed, people have paid more attention. If these signs had not worked, my next option was to begin hurling tennis balls at speeding cars to get them to slow down…we bought two, one is not enough. They work….spend the money get a least two of them..Date published: 2008-07-13Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Very Cute and Sturdy Safety Reminder The Green Turtle Safety KidAlert is a great way to get motorists attention when your kid is playing. We live on a hill with a blind spot in the driveway, so I placed the KidAlert turtle so that motorists such as the mailman, delivery trucks, and other unexpected visitors would know to slow down. It's easy to assemble and my daughter loves "her turtle". This was a good purchase.Date published: 2009-05-31Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Works great Can you believe there is actually a person in our neighborhood who said they were confused by it?!With the exception of the mentally slow, everyone else in our neighborhood had told us what a great idea it is. Several have asked where to buy one and many people have told us they send their kids to our street to play because they know the reminder to drivers is right there.Date published: 2008-06-03Rated 5 out of 5 by THELEEMOM from We love our "Safety Sam". This guy has made quite a diffrence on our street. We live on a dead end and the people who live on our street tend to just speed down assumeing that no one is out. We use it when ever my kids are on their bikes and people really slow down and pay more attention. We also bring him in when ever we are not out so the neighbors when he is out so are the kids. GREAT PRODUCT.Date published: 2010-05-20Rated 5 out of 5 by Wakefeild MA resident from So good it keeps getting stolen! I live on a very busy street. We have tried contacting the police several times about speeding on this street, but to no avail. We bought one of these, it was stolen within 2 days. So now I will buy another and have to chain it to our tree. I will buy as many as I have to! I immediately noticed cars slowing down when they saw this. It is a great product.Date published: 2009-04-18Rated 4 out of 5 by "Franklin, the green safety guy" from "KidAlert at preschool intersection." Permission given by City Transportation to put KidAlert in our busy crosswalk. We will soon have two KidAlerts on our two busy streets. It has been the only type of caution we were allowed to display.Totally love the child likeness. Our green "Franklin" is well known in the community. Several related stories have been shared regarding his importance. We have had to replace two "KidAlerts" as they have been taken from their site. I have had many calls from people who would like to get one for their personal use. I definitely recommend it to friends and families.Our preschool families are concerned when we do not have our KidAlert out for them.We have had the green "KidAlerts" previously and they had two stands for each of them that we weighed down with sand. Our newest "KidAlert" is yellow and it has one stand. I prefer having two stands in order to keep the figure in place in the street. Time will tell about the color and figure change.Date published: 2008-04-07Rated 5 out of 5 by "Mommy is Wonder Woman" from Mr. Slow is the BEST! I thought he was a turtle but realized its a boy I call him Mr. Slow. I used the sign for 3 weeks and it has stopped the crazy drivers and made them slow down it's been a miracle. The only sad thing is today someone stole his flag so I need a replacement flag! Some people anyway if you need people to slow down buy Mr. Slow he's great!Date published: 2009-06-19Rated 5 out of 5 by nwad1484 from Very Effective! I previously purchased a different sign which I hoped would make drivers aware of children at play but the slightest wind would knock it over. This product is great! It is very sturdy, does not tip over, and it certainly alerts drivers to children playing which has resulted in slower driving in our cul de sac. We are very pleased!Date published: 2012-02-08Rated 5 out of 5 by teelibaby from Go Pedro! Everytime I see our little "Pedro" out in the driveway, I smile. Pedro has helped slow the speeding cars on our street! He really works, it's amazing how many cars slow down now. We bring him out when the kids are out and when were in, we bring Pedro in so people don't get used to him being there. A very wise investment!Date published: 2010-07-08Rated 5 out of 5 by pepe from very useful, people seem to respond bright, visible, drivers seem to pay attention to it. we have it at the edge of our driveway and put it out when we play basketball.very happy with it, easy to put together and looks like it will be sturdy.only drawback so far is that it comes with a red warning flag that comes rolled up and so far has not straigntened out.Date published: 2014-10-28Rated 4 out of 5 by Retired Tech from Excellent product! The item was shipped quickly but arrived without the stickers and the plug to keep the sand in the base. One call to their customer support and the missing items were quickly received. Great customer service! Item does what it was mean to do - it slows drivers down and makes them more aware of the children.Date published: 2012-10-28Rated 5 out of 5 by Mr. Slow's neighbor from Love Kid Alert, got Dog Alert? Neighbors set up a few and move them around the street, I love the idea, they work great to slow down drivers and make them look out more conciously. I looked up the website to find out whether there is a dog/pet counterpart! Guess I'll go with another Mr. Slow instead until he gets a doggie by his makers.Date published: 2009-09-20Rated 5 out of 5 by NRSBeth from Kid Alert is worth it! We live in a cul-de-sac off of a business road; many use our street as a turn around. I purchased one for either side of the entrance into the circle and it has worked out great. Cars ready do slow down when the Kids Alert kids are outside. Other kids on the block now come down to ride their bikes too!Date published: 2011-03-25Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Love these!! We bought these to use at our cottage. Our garage is across the street from our house. It has really helped to ease my anxiety about them crossing the street. I have noticed the cars going down our street are more conscious about their speed limit and it also helps to remind our girls to look for cars.Date published: 2009-07-11
