    These kids have a huge leg up on me as a 3 year old. I didn't know a Marshall from a Fender till I was in my teens!

    Awesome!

    I remember doing similar when my kids were young. Just had our first granddaughter last year. Now I just let her at it!

    She makes poor decisions but at least she goes around those! But yeah the top ones are kind of "eye height."

    Leo would tell you some baby spit can't hurt it, here I'm thinking of Steve Cropper on stage with The Blues Brothers behind the chicken wire at Bob's Country Bunker.

    Consider cabinet straps so they can't get pulled over, sorta top heavy, you know?

    To steal a line from Gibson only a Super Reverb is good enough.

    Wall of Marshalls would be a better choice. Besides, no one cares what happens to Marshall cabinets, they're a dime a dozen. That Fender amp has value.

    I have a seven month old Weaten terrier who wouldn’t see that as a barrier at all. Fortunately or unfortunately for us, her primary target is the insoles of my wife’s shoes. She walks right past guitars and amps, although she devoured a Mogami gold cable I left out. I’m 70 and retired. No more kids for me.

    You realize that first picture is probably going to wind up being an internet meme, right?

    When my daughter was little, probably 2-3, I could tell when she’d been around my amps ‘cause every knob on every amp was on 10.

    She’s in her mid 20’s and engaged now. Enjoy these times. They’ll be over way too soon.

    She'll be able to climb that in no time. I'd recommend a Super Six Reverb, or at least a Quad Reverb.

    That's exactly what happened to my Taylor: the kids thought the case was for jumping on. My grandson, now about a year and a half, knows just what guitar strings are for, and the piano is for climbing on and looking at mommy's baby pictures...which is why all the good stuff is up on the third floor.

    When my eldest daughter was 2 she fixated on plugging in my leads. Her iffy finger control meant scratch marks all round the inputs on my twin reverb. Ah well, long time ago now.
