Bumps and Bruises Be Gone!
Kids are squirmy, and gravity can get ya when you least expect it. This must have been what one Scottish mom was thinking when she created the ThudGuard – a helmet specially designed for infants and toddlers who are prone to being dropped by older children and us clumsy adults.
It may sound a little crass to gear your child up rather than working harder toward keeping them upright, but ask your mother – I’ll bet there is a story about you either being dropped by a family member or stumbling and banging your head on that coffee table your great grandfather built.
After Kelly Forsyth-Gibson’s one year old daughter earned her own “fell on your head” story, the Scotswoman designed the ThudGuard mainly to protect children while they are learning to walk. It come with a circumference band that stretches for head growth, and its foam material doesn’t put any unnecessary pressure on delicate bones and muscles. There is even an air vent, if your child happens to be toddling around during the heat of the summer.
ThudGuard has been approved for use on kiddos aged 7 months to 2+ years, and can be purchased through their official website or via eBay if you don’t want to deal with the hassle of overseas price conversions.
