Letters from Our Customers
I just wanted to send you a very big thank you for this product. We have had this installed on our fireplace since 2005. It has saved us many, many trips to the ER! Tonight was another night where our 4 1/2 year old son was jumping around and fell face first into the fireplace. Thank goodness we have the safety foam. He has a fat lip but without the foam he would have had a very bad cut and possibly lost his front teeth. This was the best money we have ever spent on baby proofing items. I highly recommend this product!
Our hearth guard is now 8 years old…I have yet to remove it now that my youngest child is 5! I know that they day I remove it, someone will immediately bonk their heads on the hearth! Just wanted to say what a great quality product…well made and is still in great shape, even with 4 kiddos!

AWESOME – as always
I just have to mention how awesome your customer service is. They sent us replacement parts free of charge so it would fit our new home when we moved!!! Thanks
We have had your product wow since 2004. Not only protecting our own children but my daycare kids. Such an awesome product! And the only time we had to ever replace or buy again is when we moved.
We love it!!!
We are going to really enjoy this product. It’s attractive and it was very easy to install. The pieces fit perfectly. I highly recommend this product to other owners of brick hearths who wish to protect small children.
I am pleased with the quality of your product. It is obvious that it was packaged and designed with a lot of care and thought. This is the best product for this purpose that I could find. As you’ll see from my pictures, the color blends in wonderfully with my decor.
One of my concerns was that the foam was thick enough and compact enough to absorb an impact. Now that I see the product, I have no concern. I can also see that it can’t easily be picked apart and eaten, for example, as you know how children can be.
My second concern was for the fasteners and whether or not they could be a choking hazard. I no longer have that concern either because it would be a feat for me to try and pull out the fastener. Like I said before, this is a well-designed product.
Thank you for your clear and factual representation of your product. Your responses to my questions were
quite adequate. Great job!
Rating: 9, excellent. I’m very happy with this product. It does exactly what it says it will.
The odd shaped stones on our fireplace made it impossible to protect using any other system but yours. Plus, I felt much better knowing the entire surface was covered, not just a thin strip around the edge. My 18 month old twins have been playing near the fireplace for months now and I haven’t had to worry about bad injuries. My only regret is not finding your product sooner, so I’ve decided to give away fireplace kits at every baby shower I go to from now on! Thank you!
Also – see the attached photo of my twins enjoying their fireplace foam.
Several months ago I ordered a hearth cover for our living room fireplace, and I’ve been VERY happy with it. You have an excellent product and your customer service team was great to work with! The minute we got it installed I felt like I could finally relax when the kids were bouncing around near the fireplace. Soon after we installed the cover, my one year old fell and bumped her forehead against the hearth edge, but luckily the cover was there, so she just smiled and rolled away completely unbothered by it.
I just wanted to say thank you! Excellent customer service and product! Super easy install, looks and works great.

Thank you for coming up with this great product. You would not believe how wonderful it is, not having to worry about our son getting hurt on our fireplace. We’ve had so many close calls. Your product gives us one less thing to have to worry about. He can run and play all he wants and we don’t worry about it any more.
It worked out great! The customer was really happy and so were we. I think its the best way going to properly protect your fireplace. If you like you can quote me on that. We are the first baby proofing company in the history of baby proofing.
We’ll be in touch soon.
Thanks for the follow up,

We received our Baby Safety Foam yesterday. My husband installed it last night and it looks great. I am happy with the looks and not having to worry about the kids falling and getting hurt.
We just bought our house back in June and have been searching for something to protect our 2 1/2 year old and a 9 month old. We looked everywhere and the Baby Safety Foam is the best product we could find.
Thank you for helping us make our family safer!

The Baby Safety Foam Hearth Guard has been a great addition in the “baby-proofing” of our home. With a hearth made entirely of stone, it was our biggest fear with respect to our son’s safety, as he became more mobile. The Hearth Guard was a great find as other products wouldn’t have met our particular needs to ensure his safety and/or leave us with space to enjoy our family room comfortably. Our son is now walking and the foam padding has proven to be well worth the cost as he’s made a few stumbles in that area, and meets with a soft cushiony fall from which he can bounce right back!
My son enjoys climbing on our hearth. With the foam in place, I no longer have to worry about him getting hurt if he falls. The foam looks great in the room – it blends right in. I was able to install the foam during nap time with no trouble. I will definitely recommend to everyone I know. The price was also very reasonable, and the amount of time from order to delivery was outstanding.
I have to say my husband was quite skeptical, but once we put it in place, he thinks it’s great!
It’s a simple concept, but works really well and is definitely worth the money. I love that it’s customized to fit our fireplace and isn’t super noticeable. Putting it together was a snap and having the small sample piece helped me understand how this was going to work.
It doesn’t distract from the fireplace and keeps our little girl safe when she crawls nearby. I’m going to recommend this product to anyone I know who has small kids and a fireplace. Thanks for your great product!

I recieved my safety foam for my fireplace hearth this week. We have a natural stone fireplace with a large hearth that is beautiful but screams stitches and scars for our very active 10 month old. I just installed it this week and am pleased with it so far. It was very easy to put together and looks decent on our hearth. From across the room you can not tell that it is foam. I am happy with the product and feel it is sure to serve its purpose through the trips and stumbles that will be happening as she learns how to walk. Now if I could only foam pad my hard wood floors. Thank you for the quick turn around and making a helpful product.
Hello. Thank you so much for my Baby Safety Foam Fireplace Hearth Guard!! My son had fallen nose-first onto our hearth the week before I got my order, and luckily only ended up with a bloody nose. Since then, he and his other toddler friends have had many near misses, as the hearth is right in their pathway. Now that I have the Baby Safety Foam covering the hearth, I feel at ease that he and his friends are SAFE from injury!! Thank you!!
I would like to thank you, as well, for accommodating my unique hearth measurements. And the foam was also very easy to trim around my fireplace screen. Thank you! Thank you!

We would like to thank you for your product!! As with any other baby ours was only interested in heading straight to the hearth causing us to run over to her each time. Now we have such a peace of mind knowing that there is no way she is going to get hurt. What a relief! We love the way it completely encases the hearth so there are no sharp edges or exposed bricks in the front. We knew there had to be something better out there than the “normal” baby proofing items for the hearth and we are so happy that we came across you site. Thanks again!!! It couldn’t have come at a better time too since our 9 month old is now crawling, climbing and pulling up on everything but most of all the hearth. Since it is now safe she likes to pull up on it and play with her toys like it’s her personal area…
Hi. I just wanted to tell you how pleased I am with the baby safety foam that I ordered. With the uneven limestone of our fireplace, we could not adhere any of the other products out on the market. I had made a suitable cover for the hearth out of blankets, but then I found your product online… the foam stays in place better and looks so much nicer! The assembly was easy too. My husband was pleasantly surprised by the results as well. We will gladly spread the word about your product.
I noticed that you don’t have any before/after pictures with a limestone fireplace, so I have attached some if you wish to use them for your collection. And of course, I had to include a picture of our 11 month old daughter enjoying the foam. 🙂
Your product is excellent! I have already started to tell people I know with children or expecting about it. The morning after I installed the protector my son was patting the top of it with his hands and then lost his balance and fell down, if the protector hadn’t been in place his face would have been scraped as he slide down the front. He fell and rolled right over and went on his way not even whimpering. Thank goodness it covers the whole hearth! Your customer service is exceptional!
You really helped me to figure out how to measure my rounded hearth. Every time I have corresponded via email I have always gotten a very prompt reply, even at night! The product was shipped extremely fast and arrived in no time. The directions were very easy to follow and I had it installed in no time. Excellent work!
Just wanted to let you know that I am very pleased with the product. Just days after covering it, he slipped and hit his head on the bottom corner of the hearth, an area that would not have been covered with out your product. There are so many ways a baby can fall and hit the wrong way, I am so glad to be able to cover it completely. Thanks!
Here are some before and after pictures. Great product.
I just wanted to say that your product has already prevented a bad head injury on two separate occasions – and we’ve only had it for 4 months. Our toddler is ALL BOY, and he loves to run all over the house. Our son was running around and fell and hit the very corner of the foam pretty hard. It would have been a very bad accident had we not purchased the foam cover. Thanks to your hearth cover, we avoided a bad head wound requiring a visit to the ER.
Moms and Dads, it’s worth the small amount of cash for the peace of mind you get.

Thank you soooo much for a wonderful solution to make safe my son’s fireplace hearth. Both little grandsons will be much better off with your product installed which I did myself in minutes!

I wanted to tell you that I have had your product installed a little over a year now and it is a blessing that was one of the best purchases that we made. Thank you for having such a great product available. I already sent you a testimonial that is on your site but I just had to let you know that your product is the best that I could find for the purpose. Nothing else comes close. The quality of the design and product serves the purpose A++++++!!!! Thanks again for keeping my little one safe and making a wonderful product that looks great in our home!
A few weeks ago, my baby fell down and barely missed cracking her head on our hearth, then I started looking for some way to protect her. For the time being I laid a thick comforter over the hearth. I began my search for the right product. I didn’t like the guards that fit just over the corners, what use is that? Then I found this website. I placed my order and couldn’t wait to get it! It only took about 15 minutes to install and it fits very well, very easy to install. I feel safe letting my baby roam the living room now, and the Baby Safety Foam hearth cover looks so much better than the comforter we had laying up there to protect her!
I just wanted to let you know how great your product is! It not only looks beautiful, but was easy to install. Randy was such a helpful sales person, please tell him thanks. After installing it we had a Washington State inspector in the home and she was so impressed that she took down your website to pass it along.

“I just wanted to say thank you & let you know how much I appreciate your company & the services provided. What a considerate way to do business… I assembled my cover this weekend & it looks great! My husband was shocked that it “looks so good, it totally blends in.” I have no reservations in recommending BabySafetyFoam in the future.”
Here are some pictures of my hearth. This is a great idea! Glad I got one!

A few weeks ago I am sitting at my monthly Mom’s club meeting when I get a panicked call from my husband. My 3-year-old son had fallen and cut his head on the corner of the fireplace hearth. There’s blood all over the place and hubby doesn’t know what to do as he is also trying to manage our 9 month old daughter. I leave immediately and arrive at home 2 minutes later to find a pitiful little boy with a pretty decent gash in his forehead and another one on the bridge of his nose. Now I should mention that both my husband and I are medical people but for some reason when it comes to our own kids we have no idea what to do when one of them gets sick or hurt. After much debate and second guessing ourselves we decided not to go to the emergency room. Mostly because we were afraid of being laughed at by the other medical folks at the ER for blowing a little scratch out of proportion. This was a choice I now regret. The boy has a pretty good scar that probably would have been much minimized by a stitch or two. Oh well, now my kid looks tough, like a hockey player but with more teeth. Maybe someday he’ll be Harry Potter for Halloween. So this began the search for some way to protect dare-devil boy from the deadly east rock face of the family room.
I’ve tried the usual foam corner and edge covers but my son just pulls those off and pushes them around the room like a truck, cause you know, everything is a vehicle to a 3-year-old boy.
What I like most about this product is that well, firstly, it works well. Secondly, it does not damage your fireplace hearth in any way. It’s easy to install. I would recommend waiting until your more curious little ones are in bed to put it together though. I also appreciate that most people haven’t even noticed that I put something on the hearth. The color of the foam is a nondescript beige that just sort of blends in so it is not screaming “a baby lives here” to everyone who walks in the room. Also, easy to clean, just wipes off with a damp cloth.
Our fireplace guard is about five years old and is still in great shape! We know it has saved us from at least a dozen trips to the ER. It has held up superbly despite the wear and tear from two boys and all of their toys. I have recommended your product to many other families to safe guard their children. Thank you for creating such an adaptable and lasting child safety product!
Here are some before and after pictures. We are very pleased with this product so far.

We’ve had our hearth cover for 1.5 years and has been a great investment! My two-year old fell backward and hit her head smack on the corner. I think my husband just about had a heart attack but our daughter was completely fine, didn’t even cry. Also appreciate the great customer service – our hearth was on the smaller size and we received a discount on the cost of the cover. Thank you for a great product!
Your product is wonderful, precisely custom made and provides excellent protective cushioning for such a dangerous spot in our home. Thank you for giving me one less thing to worry about! Your service has also been outstanding, with the cover arriving at my home so quickly and all of your very helpful follow up. Many, many companies should be taking lessons from you!
We’ve had our fireplace guards for about two years now. I’m sure that they have paid for themselves in avoided ER copays already and our kids are only 3 and 1. Just the other day, I saw the baby slip and hit his head on the corner of the hearth quite hard. He only fussed for a moment and then ran off to play. I know that it would have been a serious fall without the padding. I’m also really glad that you were able to pad the strange little bit of stone that sticks up on the fireplace in our playroom. Only a custom mat would have done that and more than one child has bounced harmlessly off that padding.
Before we found your company, we were going to try to fashion something ourselves. It actually turned out less expensive as well as easier to just let you do the work. They were easy to install, they stay in place and they are attractive as these things go. We frequently remark that they were money well spent.
