Did you know Canada.. there's a fantastic product Made in Canada called Tail Wags Helmet Covers.
These are helmet covers made for both children and adults that make wearing a helmet fun! My boys had the honour of trying the Funky Monkey and Dino the Dinosaur. Funky Monkey is made with brown and beige polar fleece and Dino the Dinosaur is made with sparkly blue Lycra.
Both boys were very excited to try these out. Blue is one of our favourite colours so the Dino was a huge hit, and we love the tail on the Monkey. It was very easy to attach the helmet covers to their helmets and they fit snuggly. And can you believe there was no whining about the strap hurting their chin, that the helmet was itchy or any of the other usual complaints we get when the boys need to wear their helmets. The boys had tons of fun checking out either others helmet - we had to run over to Gramma's house down the street to show her, they didn't even want to take it off when we were done. This past weekend they've been riding around in circles in the basement on their trikes and scooters with their helmets on - too cute! Can't wait a another week or two until the sidewalks are clear so we can get outside to show off our new helmet covers.
Also, probably like most Canadians, we have multiple helmets for the boys - snowboarding helmets that we also wear skating, they will be getting new hockey helmets this fall when they start playing on a team, we also have bike helmets for bikes and scooters in the summer. It's so fantastic that these covers fit ALL our helmets.
Tail Wags was established in January 2006 with a fun name in order to celebrate the swinging action of the helmet covers tail while the wearer is out riding, skating, skiing - being active, and having fun!
We love that all Tail Wags products are manufactured exclusively in Canada using the finest technology, includingcomputerized cutting. Every helmet cover is carefully inspected to ensure it meets rigorous standards of quality. Of course, Tail Wags have been tested to ensure compliance with the new CPSIA product safety regulations.
As we mentioned what's so fantastic is that Tail Wags Helmet Covers fit ALL models of bike, ski, snowboard, toboggan, skate and equestrian helmets. Tail Wags are meticulously designed with a slit at the back to allow the wearer to access the helmet's goggle clip. This is perfect for the Canadian climate as we well know - one of the many fantastic things about living in Canada is that we get appropriate weather for ALL sports.
