    Yes, the sharp edges are a greater concern for me than the hot surface. Watch the little ones slam their heads on one of those sharp edges, big ouchy.

    We have a "Superyard" as linked above by DJB. We have a small house and the woodstove is in the living room where our young lad plays. Not fair to have him get burnt chasing after a toy or something. He knows "hot". But he's also only 2.5 years old. We still need to take care of due dilligence for him a little. Hope to remove the gate after this upcoming burn season.

    Kidco gate here....I didn't install it due to the fact I can't teach my kids what "hot" was. My stove is in a small family room which is basically the kids playroom so this keeps the toys from coming in contact with the stove. It's saved me headaches of cleaning burned up/stuck on pieces of toys many times. ;lol We also entertain friends with young children who may not understand the stove is "hot" and I don't want to feel bad if one of their kids gets burned up.

    It also makes a good drying rack for wet clothes in the winter.

    This was the method I used to teach both my kids. The boy was getting the idea but decided to dunk his hand in a pot of water at a rolling boil, things went much better with the baby when I was using the same method. ;lol
