I have to thank Buck Wolf, About.com Weird News Guide
, for the heads up on Thudguards
, baby-sized protective helmets that are now available in the U.S. Though these stretchy baby helmets look funny, their reason for existence is quite serious. ERs see plenty of youngsters with head injuries each year. In fact, Buck mentions that Thudguard received endorsement from the British Association of Accident and Emergency Medicine!
Do you think baby safety helmets will take off in the U.S. market? Or is this product going a little too far towards overprotective parenting? Add your thoughts by using the comments link below.
