Trunks and Toy Chests
Hinged lids of trunks and toy chests can fall on your child, causing injury to his head or neck or trapping him inside. If you have a trunk or toy chest like this, the safest thing to do is remove the lid.
If you do not want to remove the lid, a lid support can keep it open in any position you like (heavier lids might require two supports). Also consider drilling ventilation holes into any trunk in case your child falls inside and becomes trapped - this will help to keep him from suffocating.
