Our 1 year old son is extremely curious, always taking things apart and figuring out how they work and piece together.
His newest discovery is figuring out how to disassemble the remote control! He carefully releases the back battery panel exposing the batteries.
I fear (if we would allow him to try) he would work the batteries out, which is definitely not safe. To protect our son, we came up with a simple, no cost do it yourself solution. We put a clear piece of packing tape over the entire battery compartment, which successfully prevents him from disassembling the remote. We keep remotes out of his reach as much as possible, but if he does get a hold of one I feel better that we have another layer of protection.
This simple solution works for us. It’s inexpensive, easy, and effective!
