Even before TC came along we were always misplacing our keys, car keys, house keys, office keys. For a few years we had a key hook on which we deposited all keys on entering the house... well that was the theory anyway, didn't stop me from piling into the house with a child, shopping, dog, etc and losing the keys in the chaos.
Fast forward to TC who has had a thing for keys since she could sit up! In the last few months we have lost our keys over and over because she likes to hold onto a set of keys and then will not release them from her gorgeous chubby little hands. Lots of cajoling and distraction techniques later we vowed to hide them from her and make up her own set but no, only our actual keys will do.
After she became mobile she graduated to (mis)placing my set of door keys in my filing cabinet, in the bin, under my duvet and under the dog's bed, it was days before I finally located them after that one! So when I found these nifty little key locators on Amazon I thought they were worth a try.
I now have them on my house, office and car keys (and stuck on the Sky controls!) and keep the spare keys (which she was also fantastic at relocating) in a box way out of reach with the control locator. Now a quick press of the appropriate colour coded button finds my keys! Brilliant!
