Default Case stoppers for blu-ray shelving?

I currently store all of my Blu-ray movies on an old hand-made oak shelving unit.
They are sorted alphabetically, and I try to keep them all flush with the front edge of shelf.
The shelving works great, but the shelves are quite deep (9.5 inches), and my nieces play a fun game every time they visit where they push all of my Blu-ray cases to the back of each shelf.

I was thinking of installing a case stopper on each shelf which will force the movies to be flush with the front edge of shelving, and may also foil the nieces evil game.

Has anyone made something like this?
I was thinking of getting some wooden strips, or squared dowels that I could either staple, screw or nail onto the shelves at approximately 5.5" deep, with about a cm of height to keep movies from running over the strips.

Here's a quick sketch of what I'm trying to achieve:

Asuming your BDs are eaual depth,should be easy.Maybe use glue instead of nails or screws?

That's exactly what I'm going for.
I found some stain-able oak strips at Lowes today which should work perfectly.
Just need to measure, and decide on the depth.

Thanks for the pics!
