Living in Detroit, right across the border from Canada, has its advantages. One of them is watching what has become my favorite program, ‘Dragons’ Den;’ its US equivalent is ‘Shark Tank.’ If you’re not familiar with either program, inventors and new business owners come in and present their ideas. Five business moguls then decide whether or not they want to invest in these businesses. It is interesting to see the new ideas presented, as well as to occasionally see the moguls haggle with each other to win the business. I rarely miss an episode!
One of the businesses that really piqued my interest was Tail Wags Helmet Covers, Inc. The founder, Karyn Climans, came up with the great idea to make fun helmet covers for adults and children alike. Karyn generously provided ‘Lucky Lady the Ladybug’ for my review.
This delightful helmet cover is made of polar fleece. It is clearly very well-made (in Canada). The cover fits easily over the safety helmet and is held in place by the elasticized binding. The ‘Lucky Lady the Ladybug’ cover is available in adult sizes, as well as in children’s sizes up to the age of 11 years old. It is adorable, and I will be sporting it on bike rides, as well as the next time I go snow-shoeing!
Here is some information on the founder, Karyn Climans:
Karyn is the entrepreneurial spirit behind Tail Wags Helmet Covers, a company devoted to encouraging more children and adults to wear their safety helmets. One of her goals is to prevent unnecessary head injuries and it is her passion for safety awareness, along with her imaginative flair, that have been the key ingredients for Tail Wags’ success.
Karyn’s innovative helmet covers first appeared on the ski slopes in 2006. Since then, Tail Wags helmet covers have been showing up on bike trails, skating rinks, tobogganing hills, ski slopes and equestrian trails across North America and internationally, including Europe and Australia.
