This review is from: Tippitoes Extending Fireguard (Baby Product)
I cannot stress how good this product is, it not only protects the fire from the children but turns into a very useful cage when you need to lock them into a small confined area. The children, not the fire that would spread possibly quickly depending upon what furniture you have surrounding it.
Seriously though, I hate the thing. It looks bloody awful but then how do you make a cage/guard attractive if it was attractive then the bloody kids would be all over it more than they are currently so it's just one of lifes little conundrums you have to accept.
It does have it's limitations, namely that it rattles. My children love things that rattle. That is not so good in front of a fire chucking out a couple of hundred degrees of heat. They never learn. the second is that whilst it extends sideways it doesn't extend backwards, so if you're child is anything like mine it means that they quickly realise there is an alternate way around it. Solution, I placed a bean bag in the gap. That stopped the little fella but resulted in nearly 3rd degree burns to my backside when I sat on the bag.
