Kids Smile at Safety with Innovative Helmet Covers

It always seems as if just when you convince your child to agree to something safe or smart, you run across a cool kid rebel, which completely reverses every lesson you've instilled. Add helmet wearing to that list, as children despise compromising their freedom on the open bicycling roads by wearing a safety apparatus.


Creative Helmet Covers Kids Will LoveCreative Helmet Covers Kids Will Love

Tail Wags helmet covers can bring resolution to that common parent-child battle, as it provides children with the protection they need while giving them a fun alternative. These helmet covers come in the shapes of various animals, making kids eager to sport a turtle, frog, tiger or bunny on their heads as they ride bikes, go skating, horseback riding, sledding, or any other activity that may involve a bump on the head.

The helmets currently come in 32 different creature designs, as well as four fabric printed helmet covers if your child has outgrown the little kid animal scene. They are available at a variety of locations, and a complete list can be found on Tail Wags’ official website . Looking for a creative way to keep kids safe? Give this innovative Canadian company a try.  (UPDATE: The helmet covers no longer seem to be available.)

Suffocation

Tail Wags helmet covers are not permanently attached to helmets, therefore, is impossible for them to get stuck or cause a potential risk to the wearer. In fact, they contribute to the safety aspects of the helmet because the child is more likely to wear their safety helmet when they have an animal helmet cover they adore AND these adorable helmet covers increase the visibility of the wearer on the ski slopes, bike trails and skating rinks!

In fact, Tail Wags helmet covers are innovative because their unique design allows them to fit over ALL makes and models of bike, skate, ski, snowboard, toboggan, equestrian and motorcycle helmets, thereby making them incredibly versatile!

well

the covers could most likely still fall so they can pose a danger to the wearer if in an accident.
