Safety dads – corner bumpers

corner bumper Safety dads   corner bumpersThere was a story in the news recently about a 2-year old boy who fell of the sofa, hit his head on the corner of a low dining table and needed 13 stitches. Not great – another reminder for all parents to baby-proof your house before it’s too late. So I saw these in IKEA the other day and just had to post a photo – what a simple design to protect corners … and they look kind of cool. You gotta love the Swedes … they gave us ABBA, the Swedish Chef, Swedish Tanks (Volvos) and now the IKEA corner bumper! YAY! You can get them in lots of colors for around $5. Nice. Whatever type of corner bumpers you end up getting … it doesn’t matter, just get some. They are a very good investment in the safety of your house when the little ones are about.

And NO, I haven’t been asked to write about this by IKEA … I just like their stuff.

    Annoying…you don’t actually tell us anything useful about the product. What you did write applies to any corner guard, of which there are many. Also, they are $7. You are off by 40%. Lastly, this isn’t an investment. I hate it when people misuse that word.

    Thanks for your comment. OK so what detail have I missed to describe? This is not a product review … there was nothing outstanding about this product – as you pointed out corner guards are pretty generic. This post is a simple “I saw this and I think it’s cool”.

    I saw these in one of the IKEAs in Australia and they were $5 at the time … prices change all the time and the price point was just an indication.

    Lastly – please enlighten us about the use of the word investment.

    What’s your point, ####? Stef introduced us to a product which he liked. Your rant is of no value to anyone.

    Thank you Stef, I was actually looking for some suggestions and yours is a great one. I’ll make sure to swing by Ikea this weekend. And by the way, ignore the rude rant from “anonymous”. Note that (s)he was too embarassed to attach his/her name to the pointless comment. :-)

    Cheers to you from Canada!
