Company Feature | Jamboo Creations

As a parent, I worried constantly about my kids being injured in our old house where we had a fireplace in our living room. They can cause serious injury to a child and safety precautions are a MUST. I cringe at even thought of anything happening to my two beautiful daughters. I am sure all parents can relate to this feeling and the need to protect your child from harm.

When they are young, it’s especially important to make sure your home is a safe environment. Most often parents settle for function over design and some of those safety contraptions are pretty darn ugly. However, when its your kids we are talking about, parents will sacrifice having the perfectly decorated home. The sharp edges of fireplace hearths are a cause of worry and most of the products out there work fine, but are not a pretty sight.

I am pleased to tell you today about a product that is both functional in what it does and also is stylish! That product would be HearthSoft by Jamboo Creations! It is a custom-tailored fireplace hearth cover that protects your child from the sharp edges of the fireplace hearth without ruining your interior design.  It is both durable and lightweight and is made to suit your decor and the dimensions of your hearth. There is no assembly required! Just take it out of the box and put it over your hearth and you are done. It has a zippered entry for easy cleaning  and the padded skirt folds underneath for easy storage. The padded top is made from 2 inch thick dense, flame-retardant polyfoam wrapped in Dacron.

HearthSoft is available in 12 colours so you can choose the one that best matches your decor. It is priced at $249 and there is FREE SHIPPING and a 100% money-back Customer Satisfaction Guarantee.

Many of you know Maureen who is a reviewer from my blog team. She has a 2 year old little boy who unfortunately was hurt this summer in an accident involving fire. I wanted to show Maureen HearthSoft to see what she thought of them.  This is what she replied back to me:

For those that don’t already know, my two year old son was burned severely on his arm and hand in a campfire accident on July 4th 2010. I was standing within two feet of my son who in a moment fell backwards and this very preventable accident is proof that life can change horribly in an instant.I would love to see the HearthSoft in every home that has a fireplace so that all children can be spared the pain and disfigurement that comes from preventable fire injuries.

I had a chance to talk to Bill Maguire, co-owner of Jamboo Creations and learn more about this important safety product. Here’s what he had to say…

Please tell me about Jamboo Creations.

Jamboo Creations was born out of our own personal discovery that  practical does not have to be ordinary. The inspiration for our  HearthSoft™ hearth covers comes from being parents ourselves and having a passion for creating products that are simple, smart and practical, yet are  anything but ordinary! Our goal is to make quality products that are truly unique in design and function for children in the home.

What kinds of products do you sell?

The HearthSoft™ is a made-to-measure, custom designed decorative cushion that safely covers the top and sides of the fireplace hearth, protecting infants and toddlers (or people with disabilities or the elderly living at home) with a soft layer of protection, while adding an attractive and comfortable seating area for you, your family and friends. Jamboo Creations sells other cushion products – pole wraps, seat, bench, window cushions, throw pillows.

The patent-pending* HearthSoft™ is designed as a single, lightweight unit, which goes directly from the shipping package to the fireplace hearth. However, it’s constructed and sewn so that the padded skirt – both front and side panels – folds effortlessly underneath the top cushion for easy storage in a closet or under a bed. Because each HearthSoft™ is made to exact specifications of each individual hearth, consumers are assured a product that fits snugly and looks great.
