  • Kidco safety gate prices to go up in 2009

    The Baby Bargains Book Blog reports that beginning January 1, 2009, Kidco will enforce a new minimum advertised policy (MAP), meaning that sellers must sell at a specified minimum price. The validity of MAP policies has been contested, but without much success.

    Kidco is one of the major safety gate manufacturers, and in fact, we used the gate pictured here for our stairs for a while. So if you’re looking to buy a Kidco safety gate, now’s the time to do it. You can find them at Amazon here. and at Babies R Us/Toys R Us here, but of course, there are many other retailers out there. Do be careful of shipping charges, since gates tend to be bulky and heavy.
