Name the first thing that comes to your mind when I say Tail Wags. If you said helmet covers, your right! Tail Wags Helmet Covers, Inc. was started by Karyn Climans in January of 2006. Straight from the Tail Wags site, here’s Karyn’s Story.
“Years ago, Karyn suffered a serious ski accident. She was lucky to be wearing her ski helmet because it saved her life! The foremost goal of her company is to help prevent unnecessary injuries and it is her passion for safety awareness along with her imaginative flair, which are the key ingredients for Tail Wags’ success.”
“Initially working out of her basement, Karyn started Tail Wags with 6 different helmet covers: the Red Devil, Beaver, Leopard, Bunny Rabbit, Zebra and Raccoon. These are still some of her best sellers! Today, there are some 40 animal characters to choose from and Tail Wags are sold both online and in stores throughout North America and overseas.”
My biggest question was how do you come up with the company name of Tail Wags and sell helmet covers? Here’s the answer I got from http://www.tail-wags.com
“The company was named Tail Wags in order to celebrate the swinging action of the helmet cover’s tail while the wearer is out riding, skating, skiing – being active, and having fun!”
Makes sense to me!
I have to admit, the first time I went on the site. I giggled. It’s something new and different. More importantly, I’ll do whatever it takes to keep my daughter safe.
I received the Fairy Princess helmet cover for my daughter. I opened the package and my daughter immediately put it on her head without her bike helmet. (I wish I had my camera close). She loves playing dress up and if she’ll keep her bike helmet on her head being a Fairy Princess…well, Karyn did her job! Thank you Karyn! Here’s a picture of ours. (I tried to get a picture my daughter with it on and she just wasn’t in the mood today.) I’ll post it another day!
The helmet cover is micro-fleece. It needs to be hand washed and laid flat to dry. The cover stretches nicely and is snug to the bike helmet. My only concern with this particular cover (Fairy Princess) is the “jewels” on the crown. I was picking at them, and they seem secure on the crown. I’m not sure if they are big enough to cause a choking hazard, but as always be careful. All in all, I would recommend it, especially if your child doesn’t like their “normal” helmet.
Tail Wags Helmet Covers come in Adults and Childrens sizes. So, the whole family can join in on the fun!
