Expert review

We first tested the Dreambaby Retractable stair gate in 2018, when the sample we tested had a major failure and we made it a 0% Don’t Buy with a safety alert. Since then, the manufacturer claims it’s been redesigned to solve the safety issues. Read our full review to find out how this stair gate did in our tests and if it's a safe and secure option for your baby or toddler.

What's included:
  • Pros and cons
  • What is it?
  • How does it fix?
  • What’s it great at?
  • Is there anything I should watch out for?
  • Is there anything else I should know?
  • Should I buy it?
