When my daughter got to choose her bike helmet, she went straight for the hot pink Wipeout Helmet. It includes five colored dry erase markers and stencils, so kids can decorate their own protective gear.
The helmets come in three sizes geared towards kids ages 3 to 11 years old. The smallest helmet fits roughly 3 to 5 year olds, the medium fits a 5 to 8 year old, and the large fits an 8 to 11 year old kid. They meet all the requirements to be used as both bike and skating helmets, and offer a creative space for displaying kids’ unique personalities. From scribbles to masterpieces, each one showcases your child’s unique style. Even if your kid doesn’t color it at all, it works very well for protection.
My daughter has never changed her design, and the color still shows up well despite hours in the sun and riding through the rain. Yet the markers wipe off easily with a little elbow grease should she ever want to change the decor.
These helmets comes in black, white, teal, hot pink, neon pink, neon orange, and neon green. Wipe Out also offers other protective gear in a variety of colors that can be decorated, such as knee and elbow pads, which come with two markers.
