Wide, shiny bright steps that move. Thick rubber handles. Sides that you can see yourself in. A moving playground? No, an escalator. A child can make a game out of almost anything and escalators are no exception. Although you know that an escalator is not a toy, many children do not. Following these simple guidelines will make the ride more pleasant and safe for children.
The rules for riding elevators are about the same for kids as they are for adults.
When riding with a small child, hold his or her hand, or carry the child in one arm while holding the handrail with the other. Help children step onto and off of the escalator.
