One more step to toddler Independance: EZ Reach Review & Giveaway

Do you have a toddler like mine?  Does your toddler always want to be the one to go first and turn on lights?  Jayden always has to run ahead of me and be first.  He also always wants to turn on lights.  If I turn on the light before him then he gets mad.  Sometimes this is difficult since that means I have to lift him to reach the switch.  That is why I was excited when I was contacted to review the EZ Reach light switch

The EZ Reach Light Switch is made in the U.S.A. and have a U.S. Patent for thier design of the "Wag the tail back and forth mechanism."  The Ez Reach Light switch is made with self extinguishing A.B.S. plastic.  Which I had not heard of, but sounds great.  Self extinguishing A.B.S. plastic will put itself out if there is some kind of electrical fire.  What a great safety feature!!  one of the best features is how easy it is to install and use.  the EZ Reach light switch works easily with toggle switches, decor, and even multi switch plates.  You don't have to buy more parts or worry about making it fit. 

The EZ Reach light switch is also cute!  They are more then just a light switch extention.  There are a couple of different designs to choose from.  You can pick Wags the dog, Whiskers the cat, or Monty the monkey.  They are all very cute!  And they are in the process of adding more cute designs.  I am a huge monkey fan.  Last but not least, EZ Reach is guaranteed for life. Though it is virtually unbreakable, no matter what happens, they will replace them. 

We tried out the EZ Reach light switch in Jayden's room.  Jayden's light switch is a double switch, one controls the overhead ceiling fan light and the other controls the lamp in his room.  I actually attached the EZ Reach myself.  It was very easy to install.  I just removed the screws in the switch plate, put the EZ Reach over the switch (don't remove the plate, just the screws) and then put in the longer screws that come with the EZ reach.  Then you place the sticker over the top.  We put the wags the dog in Jayden's room.  I then let Jayden try it out.  He loved using it.  He was switching the light on and off.  At first I was a little worried because he would pull out on the "tail" and I worried it would break, but he got used to it going back and forth.  We can still use the othe swich ont he plate no problem.  I think this is a great little gadget to own.  It is another step to teach your toddler independance. 

These can be placed in so many places, toddlers room, bathroom, hallway, kitchen, and more.  Jayden loves is independance.  It is nice that I can ask him to go turn off the light and not have to do it myself.  So it helps me be a little lazy sometimes... lol!  I have noticed that the dog sticker is starting to lift off the plate.  I don't know if maybe I didn't clean it good enough or maybe I didn't stick it well.  Either way the sticker definately does not change the way it works and it works great.

    I'd take Whiskers and probably put it on the bathroom light switch, since my little girl has a night light in her room anyway.
