Results from a survey of parents and carers revealed deep concerns about social distancing with toddlers, with 81% citing they were worried about social distancing now lockdown restrictions are easing. The survey, run by Instagrammer mum Stacey Purnell (@_stacyelouox) and commissioned by ONK – the UK’s safety reins brand that puts style, adventure and safety at the fore, also found that 57% of respondents intend to use baby reins to help keep their toddlers socially distanced from others.
“I am worried that people will not keep a distance!” says mum of one, Emma Gray (@itsemmagray_). “My son is at the age where he is curious of the world around him and wants to run off to explore.
“I was never keen on reins but pushing a buggy and holding a toddler’s hand is hard, especially when they see something they want to investigate. My son used to just let go and run off. With reins, I can keep a hold of him so he can still explore, but can only go so far; and with lockdown restrictions easing, they’ve become invaluable in helping keep him at a safe distance from others whilst still allowing him to be curious and walk freely.”
You can’t rein in a toddler’s curiosity but you can help keep them close whilst they explore and discover the world around them. With lockdown easing, parents and carers are eager to get their children outside and although toddler reins can be a bit of a Marmite for many ONK’s reins are unique in providing a balance between style (they come in a range of stand-out designs that include leopard print, camouflage and skull and crossbones) and peace of mind for keeping little explorers safe and close at a time where worry and concern for our children is at the fore.
