To be honest the cover looked quite amateurish. The website is great; offering a superb range of safety products. It is clear by reading the text what the purpose of the CD ROM is but would’ve been easier with appropriate pictures as well. As mentioned previously the cover lets it down. The quality of the CD is fine and the content is basic but fine. I was familiar with the term ‘Childproofing’ prior to receiving this CD to review. We also have ensured our home is safe for Freddy prior to receiving this CD. Watching the CD was very informative and really gave you all the information you needed about keeping your home safe. All instructions were very clear and the room by room guide was easy to follow. Design and layout are user friendly but very basic. This CD was easy to navigate apart from having to use the space bar. I sometimes waited for the page to turn then realised the space bar needed pressing again. I did take part in the interactive questionnaire and scored average. I will look into my safety practices and adapt them where necessary. I have not yet gone through the interactive questionnaire again to see if my score improved. Any safety advice is important to any mother! I would purchase this just to give my husband peace of mind. It would be something he could be ‘in charge’ of. Good value for money and would be brilliant if these were handed to new parents. Great safety content. Some brilliant advice, but poor appearance.

I was very interested to watch this CD ROM. I think this is a great website with some really interesting information and products. There is a lot of information written on the case of the CD ROM, so you have all the information you need. Packaging is not very eye catching and maybe too much info on the front cover. I had not heard of this website before I was supplied with this item to review. Before viewing this CD ROM I had already put plug protectors in our sockets and we have stairs gates. This CD is very informative and I thought it explained all the dangers in the home in great detail and information was backed up by diagrams which were very good.
The CD ROM was easy to navigate but coming out of it was not so easy. I had to log out and log back into my computer. I also took part in the interactive questionnaire and was in the top scoring bracket. Personally I think this product is ideal for new parents. There was loads of great information about safety. I would not necessarily purchase this CD as I do tend to find out a lot of information online. This has some really good tips, but a lot of the information can be found online for free. I would recommend the website and the CD ROM is ok but the price may deter people off buying it. It had some good tips about safety and covered every room in a house.
