I'm not a kid at 74. I bought this to go around the corner of 2 shelves in my garage that were located right outside the door connecting the back hall and the garage. At this age, I was very concerned about tripping and hitting my head on one of the shelves. This worked perfectly. I could not believe how strong the adhesive is that comes with it. Wow! I consider this a multi-purpose cushion only limited by your imagination. Go for it. Your kids stay safe, and us old folks won't fall and get hurt.
