    I got some good things for the corners of our TV cabinet from IKEA. They are shaped like a hand and made of rubber.

    ok, great. Im looking to cover all sides of the coffee table because it seems sharp on all sides. Do you remember if Ikea has this option?

    So the corner things didnt work for my daughter. She would just pull them off or bite them off. I bubble wrapped the corners for a while but then I just moved the coffee table out of the way instead. She started to climb on it and it has a glass top etc etc. Easier to move it in the end.

    Hi Sazzy, My LO has also pulls the "corner" off too. I wanted to keep the coffee table bc its a great piece for him to learn to "stand" on. Just wanted to cover all the edges because when he "stands" on him. His balance is not that strong so he sometimes loses balance and hits his chin etc.
