I would love some help with this one. My dd is 18 months old and is climbing out of her cot. We are about to move her into a toddler bed and I have just started stressing out about coming up to summer and having a fan in her room. I don't want her to get up in the night and stick her fingers in it or anything. Our House will be to hot without it and a ceiling fan is not an option.
Really interested to know what others have done in similar situation or if there is such a thing as a toddler proof fan? Any advice help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance .

I use a box fan in my daughters room. I put it on the top of the draws opposite her bed. I had it in there for a while before actually using it so she got used to it.

Depending on how your house is laid out is it possible to have the fan at the door outside her room and have a baby gate across her door to stop her getting it? Our house is tiny so we also use the technique of putting the air con on in the lounge room and leaving their door open to cool them down.

Can you put the fan up on a dresser so she can't reach it?
Or can you put a playpen around the fan, so he ca't get to it?

I've got a little "Vornado" fan in my room. It's works by circulating the air in the room and because it's small you could sit it up on a tall bookshelf if you have something like that in her room. It works really well, gives a lovely breeze in the whole room without actually blowing air directly on you.

Isn't there a dyson fan which has no blades? I vaguely remember seeing something like that at the shops a while ago. Being a dyson im sure it'll be exxy.

Is a ceiling fan not possible ecause of the cost of installing it, or do you livr in a tented house?
Could you possibly buy a movable evaporative cooler / air conditioner?

We live in a rented house and the owner said no.
Thanks everyone for the advice. She did have a wardrobe in her room but I will swap it for a tall boy and use the box fan idea .
