Last summer we got Baby Bird a bike trailer so that she could come along for bike rides. We were only able to do a couple of outings last summer because she had just turned one, and we stuck pretty close to home.
This year we are getting ready for more rides together and now we have a need for a helmet for Baby Bird. As a parent, I always want Baby Bird to be safe, but at the same time I want her to have fun.
I recently found out about Tail Wags helmet covers. Tail Wags is a Canadian company, developed by Karyn Climans who was in a serious ski accident. Fortunately she had her ski helmet on and it saved her life. Now, Karen and Tail Wags are devoted to bringing awareness to children and adults of the importance of wearing your safety helmets, and they show you how to do it in style.
Baby Bird received the Fairy Princess helmet cover. It’s made with a soft pink fleece fabric and has a yellow fleece crown with jewels and a pink veil. Baby Bird is just getting in to reading about princesses so she got excited when she saw that she could wear her own crown.
In her excitement, she picked at on of the jewels and was able to get it off quite easily, but it was nothing a little crazy glue didn’t fix – for good! We went out to buy her her first bike helmet so she could wear her princess crown, but mistakenly got the wrong size, so Baby Bird got to wear it on it’s own instead.
The helmet covers are designed to stretch to cover all sizes and styles of helmets and are available in lycra, micro fleece and polar fleece. They are proudly made in Canada with top quality fabrics and are made to be durable for any activity.
Tail Wags sell for $40 (CDN) and are available from many Canadian, American, Australian and European retailers, or you can purchase them through their online store. With summer coming up, this is a great buy to make sure your little ones stay safe and have fun.
They have also offered all This Bird’s Day readers a 10% discount on all online Tail Wags orders from today until Wednesday, June 30th. To get the discount, just enter birdsday in the promo code area at checkout.
