When I was a kid wearing my bike helmet and other kids bike safety gear was something I dreaded. Helmets were big, boring and uninspired. It was a little embarrassing to wear them because they just didn’t look all that great.
Getting my own daughter to wear her bike safety gear is much easier now, however, thanks to the fun dry erase productive gear available from Wipeout. Thank you to Wipeout for partnering with us and providing us with fun kids bike safety gear.
Wipeout Kids Bike Safety Gear
I wasn’t previously familiar with Wipeout gear but apparently my more on-trend daughter was. When I showed Bubbles her new helmet, wrist guards, and knee and elbow pads she excitedly told me they were the ones she had been wanting after noticing them at Toys R Us (also available at Target and Amazon).
As soon as she saw the bike safety gear she immediately wanted to get started on decorating it. As it was one of the first days of sun and warmer temperatures we’d had in awhile, she decided to draw flowers, butterflies, and ladybugs – perfect for spring (and possibly inspired by our recent butterfly crafts).
The great thing about all of the gear – helmet, elbow pads, knee pads, and wrist guards – having a dry erase surface is that every time she rides her bike she can switch up her look. With the ever-changing mind of a 6-year-old this feature really appeals to both of us. ABS hard-shell construction and safety certification for roller sports (biking, skateboarding, scooters, etc.) for kids 3-14 appeals to me.
Knee pads, elbow pads, and wrist guards all come in a 3-pack Pad Pack and include two dry erase markers.
Dinner was quickly approaching but we of course had to take a few minutes to test out the new bike gear. Everything went on easily and was comfortable to wear. Comfort is another important feature of kids bike safety gear, in my opinion; if it’s not comfortable, they’re not going to want to wear it.
A few trips up and down the driveway and one with Daddy to the end of the street and back left her all smiles. We can’t wait for a nice sunny day to pack up our bikes and her new bike safety gear and head to the park.
