I've seen these but IMO it is best to teach the importance of safety rather than use tips that won't hurt a person. You don't want your grandson to get used to the idea that his bow cannot hurt someone.
Yes they are called MOR archery targets and are very safe. I have used them for after school archery and for a church youth group. They will stop arrows form any bow with the proper tips on the arrows. They are an investment at over $100. but if you live in a area that frowns on arrows flying around then they are a safe option. But for one on one instruction, I have to agree with z28melissa teaching safety is always the top priority when getting kids started.
One thing with the MOR target is that the arrows bounce off the target. If he is to close to the target, the arrows may bounce back and hit him.
