A cool-to-the-touch plastic grate won’t let curious kiddies fingers through or allow small objects to get wedged in. When accidentally covered (with, say, an errant sweatshirt or plush toy), it shuts itself off to prevent a hazard. This piece is lightweight and available in a range of colors, so it will not clash with your current décor and is easy to transport from room to room. Plus, at $35, the price is truly unbeatable. If it accidentally tips over, it will automatically turn off. And don’t tuck it away in the summer months—you can operate the fan without heat for some cool ventilation. Height: 12 inches.
