Let's face it...when it comes to drivers, most of them don't pay attention to what's going on around them. Many are so busy talking on their phones, texting, reading their GPS, or simply going too fast down a street...you have to wonder how some individuals get their license in the first place!!!The Kid Alert warning REALLY WORKS!!! My neighbor and I have two Kid Alerts, and we put them up on the street within our townhouse community. So far, we have seen a substantial difference in cars slowing down. It seems that when drivers see that BRIGHT YELLOW Kid Alert with his flag sticking out...drivers slow down. I tend to put my Kid Alert right on the edge of the street line in order for drivers to see it and to give them time to slow down. Without the Kid Alert, drivers just ZOOM down our common street at speeds of 35+ (in a residential zone)!! ARGH!!Now, with the Kid Alert up, drivers slow down to LESS THAN 20 mph as they pass the Kid Alert and then they go on as they please. ABSOLUTELY WORTH THE PRICE AND THE INVESTMENT!!!Price should never be a factor when it comes to your kid's safety, especially if you can prevent it. My only problem with the Kid Alert...can't find it in stores - must be popular!!! :)And...you need to be mindful of your Kid Alert...I've already had 1 stolen. :(Better known as...a "Kid Alert"-napping!!! So, keep an eye on your "Kid Alert" or at least cable-lock it to something stationary. These safety devices are ideal for any family...even at picnics or family outings. It just helps to alert drivers to SLOW DOWN. Any safety device that can do that...it's worth it. Thank you for your time!!! :)

I used two of these signs at the cottage while my grandchildren were there. I have a road that runs between the cottage and the lake and wanted something to warn drivers who go too fast anyway. Not sure how much they slowed drivers but we had no accidents. I ordered two and one came with no flag on pole. Called company direct and they sent new flag pole and flag. Filled them with water but they blew over with a strong wind. They need two supports on bottom and I have seen some that way made by same company but these only had one support.

Comments about Step2 Kid Alert - Visual Warning Signal:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

very useful, people seem to respond
from oakland, ca
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.
Love, Love it!

Loved that it was heavy enough to stay in place, but easy to move with one hand, while carrying child in other hand for setting out, or clean up time. It is very visible, even when we set it out during night parties at our farm.
EXCELLENT KID ALERT PRODUCT
About Me Midrange Shopper
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.
Sturdy, Exactly What We Needed
from Blaine, MN
I have been looking for something to put at the end of my driveway to slow down drivers who speed down my street- this is it. This is very attractive, well made and actually does the job- drivers slow down! We're very happy that we purchased this little guy and recommend him.
Great Quality, Visability: Cars Slow Dow
from Washington, DC area
As all of our Step2 items, the Kid Alert "sign" is made of high quality, durable plastic. The assembly was easy (you need some strength to push the boy into the stand) and took about 1 minute, including placing the decals onto the boy. The signs work and I believe that they will last a long time (we store them in our garage when not using them). The bright yellow boy and the orange flag get the attention of drivers who always slow down upon seeing the warning sign of kids playing. We live in a cul-de-sac at the end of a long, suburban neighborhood road (.3 miles). Cars/trucks often use the circle to turn-around, while driving much faster than they should (and above the speed limit). We put two of these "signs" out in different locations to get the attention of drivers and so that they cannot easily whip around the circle. Also, with a coupon from Step2 (10 dollars off), we found the best price right here even with shipping charges. Lastly, the kids (3 to 5 years old) love the signs and love helping to set them up and take them down. The only "issue" is that sometimes the kids want to play with their safety signs. I must admit, they little sign guys are pretty cute. Thanks Step2!!
Simply Safety for your Kids
from Eastvale, ca
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!
Initial problem-Now Perfect
from York Beach, ME
When I set up the Safety Sam there were parts missing. I called Step 2's customer support rather than returning it to Lowe's. The call was answered just about immediately by a very helpful and friendly woman. She assured me that the missing parts would be sent right away. They were. I received the package within 4 days. Great service and everything I needed to complete the sign. It looks wonderful. I just hope people heed the warning.
A Great Product
from Baton Rouge, LA
Some of our neighbors have this, so, we bought one for our end of the street. Hope more neighbors do the same.
My girls love to ride there bikes and play outside all the time so its nice to have the little sign guy to remind my neighbors to be cautious down our street. and the girls think its fun to put him out on the street.
