4.0 out of 5 stars Good Protection - that won't last, September 25, 2001
This review is from: Prince Lionheart Table Edge Guard with 4 Corners, Grey (Baby Product)
I purchased this table guard about a month ago. I feel that the padding itself is pretty cushiony (especially if compared to the expandable table guards) and I feel it would prevent a child from seriously hurting themselves if they should run into the table. However, I also felt there were a few problems. You have to apply the four pre-cut foam corners to the table (easy), then you have to measure the rest of the foam, which is one long piece, to fit your table--and you have to be EXACT so USE A TAPE MEASURER (easy). However, cutting the foam was NOT that easy. The directions suggest you use a serrated bread knife - we opted to use a razor knife - but still ended up with some gaps. This certainly does NOT look good and cannot be fixed! The tape they give you to apply to the table is NOT very durable and I don't see it lasting. I don't know how easy the tape itself comes off the table, but I do know that the foam is constantly coming off of the tape. Plus small children, like mine, are forever pulling the foam off of the table - which IS very easy for them to do. My children are always playing near the table now since they enjoy pulling the foam off so much! Another dissapointment is that the foam only protects the top and sides of the corners - whereas I would have prefered it covered the ENTIRE corner (top and bottom) in case a child is reaching under the table and hits his/her head while standing up. Also, if anything gets spilled onto the table - which DOES happen with kids - it will lessen the durability of the tape. And you WILL get crumbs in between the table and the foam - which IS very hard to clean. Overall, the product is good and does serve its purpose. I will definately keep the foam on my table since I feel it will help to prevent any serious injuries, but I am going to also be ordering one of the "expandable" bumbers to cover it. This will cover the ugly gaps, prevent my kids from pulling it off and hopefully, my friends won't notice the collection of crumbs I have acquired since I have put the guard on the table!
