Tail-Wags Helmet Covers Blog — Exercise

Great Review!

Posted by 2 on

Reading this blog post about Tail Wags Helmet Covers was music to my ears: Thanks Lindsay Follett!!! Could kids’ protective gear get any cuter?  Hats, or rather helmets, off to Karyn Climans for designing the Tail Wags products which are ridiculously appealing to kids and make life a whole lot easier for parents. I don’t know about you but every time I slap a helmet on my kids I cease to recognize them.  Whether it be on a crowded ski hill or amongst the herd of kids riding bikes in our back lane, I’m always struggling to pick out which of...

Tobogganing Safely

Posted by 2 on

If you are going to survive the long and cold months of winter, you need to play outside. Tobogganing, skiing, snowboarding and skating are just a few of the great winter sports that will keep you and your children active and help the winter months fly by!   I was saddened to read the article in Today’s Parent indicating that some cities are considering the ban of tobogganing on city slopes although I understand why there is concern.

Are you a good role model for your children? Do you believe in practicing what you preach? It's common knowledge for our kids to emulate what they see us doing - monkey see, monkey do!

Making People Smile

Posted by 2 on

What could be better than making people smile when you ride by? That’s what I do every time I cycle past wearing one of my helmet covers. Lately I’ve been sporting the Blue Fish and my boyfriend has been wearing Blaze and the comments we receive are always joyful: “Great helmet cover … where did you get it?” “Cool lid!” Sometimes it’s just a smile or thumbs up but it sure beats the road rage experienced by some cyclists and Toronto drivers. Toronto is notoriously bad for conflicts between cyclists and motorists but I like to think I’m improving the...

I Should Know Better

Posted by 2 on

I will chalk this experience up to a temporary lapse in judgment on my part. For someone who preaches safety on a regular basis, I know better than to take unnecessary risks especially when participating in active sports. Here's the story: I was riding my bike with my boyfriend (Richard) 3 weekends ago ... not to worry, we were definitely wearing our sports helmets! We enjoyed a long 2 1/2 hour ride from my apartment to the Brick Works in Toronto and back. Along the final stretch of bike trails, Richard and I were feeling the love! Riding side by...
