Pogginz Helmet Accessories: A boring helmet turns into a cool hat!
How would you feel if your child actually asked for a helmet to be a princess, a dinosaur, a shark, or even a dino princess?
Mom’s shoes running around the house or plastic swords in an imaginary arena are no strange to the average parent. Kids love to roleplay. But most of the time safety is the enemy of that world. With kids, looking cool is as important as having fun and they are not always responsible as they get lost in imagination.
Pogginz are lightweight accessories that can stick to any kind of helmet (not included in the set). They are easy to apply and reapply many times over thanks to velcro tapes. Once you stick the velcro tape on the helmet, you’re ready to pop any soft, glitter vinyl Pogginz part on it. The sets can be mixed and matched with each other and many combinations are possible. The velcro tapes are industrial grade and can be repositioned up to 700 times, so you can purchase as many sets as you like (or trade them), place them as you wish, ending up in unimaginable new styles. If you want, you can purchase more attachment pieces to use one set on more than one helmet.
For any outdoor action such as skateboarding, rollerblading, scooting, cycling, role playing, or just aimlessly running, Pogginz are the reason your kids will want to ask for their helmets because now they are now part of the play.
There are currently 10 items in the product line. With its tiara and colorful veil, Sparkle is fit for a princess. For the more adventurous type, there are color options in the Spike and Hook dinosaur styles. Finn, the shark with the fin and the tail, can be coupled with Razor, a set of sharp teeth, Steer is a pair of horns, and Blaze is a red&orange pair of flames. Any odd combination is also possible. A dino princess, or a shark with horns are also acceptable figures in the world of play.
The Pogginz(es?) are the brainchild of Claire O’Neal, who has a background as a registered nurse and a mom. She is obsessed about fitness and safety (as well as natural food, books instead of screens, etc.) which caused her to bring forth a way to get around kids to wear helmets no matter what they are doing. Pogginz accessories don’t look THAT ridiculous; adults can use them too.
Please remember, helmets are more safety gadgets than fashion accessories. With children, the issue becomes even more serious since they perceive traffic differently. For one, they have a narrower vision than adults. They neither have enough experience to judge the speed of an approaching vehicle and their movements cannot be predicted easily. Apart from that, children are often too engaged to be cautious when they are playing. Some children are difficult to even get to try a helmet while some are eager to wear them. Best way is to set a good example as a responsible parent. Wear your helmet on every possible occasion and they will imitate. Helmets ensure the safety of the most important part of our body.
