that is such a great picture! I remember when my oldest son was around that age, he ran up, grabbed a glass ball ornament and crushed it in his little hand, and got little cuts on his palms. When he did it once, I thought that would teach him not to do it again, but , nope, it didn't phase him, he never cried, and with me right there with him, he suddenly ran around and did it AGAIN! I couldn't believe it. So, I put all the ornaments up high, where he couldn't reach, and bought some that looked like glass, but were unbreakable. I'll never forget that; he got such a kick out of crushing the ornaments, but it didn't phase him at all that it cut his little hands. He has long since been on his own. I had to downsize a lot this year because we moved into a very small apartment and I just threw out those cheap plastic balls, lol. And my son just turned 30 last month. Thank goodness, he has long since given up crushing ornaments.

We have used a super play yard and placed the TREE inside of it to keep the kids away from the tree and the ornaments.

Great photo! When I first saw it I thought of the Sears Wish Book!

When my kids where little I just made sure there was nothing breakable on the tree. They all pulled it over once (or twice for my youngest) - but did not like the idea of the tree falling. Natural consequence. lol

edit to add: also we did not have lights, or anything they could not 'eat'.
