Joovy has branched yet again, this time into the important world of bike (and trike) safety. It is an important topic, one to make sure you stress to your children — always wear your helmet! Kids won’t wear their helmet if they pinch, so make sure to get a well-designed dome defender like the Joovy Noodle, sent to me for review.
We moved recently into a new home after a year stint in a Los Angeles apartment. My family was pretty miserable in that apartment, cooped up all the time and on top of each other. We just are not apartment people — we need space and outdoor livin’. So now we are home and our daughter is thrilled be able to ride her bike around a neighborhood again.
Back on her prized bike, my girl is wearing her Noodle to protect her noggin. The Noodle is an amazingly adjustable helmet that fits ages 1-4. Well, my daughter is 6.5 and it fits her just fine! Chalk it up to a sophisticated fit adjuster dial on the back. So easy to tighten and loosen, the Noodle is the easiest helmet I’ve encountered thus far. It fits head circumferences 18.5 – 20.5 inches.
Since the Noodle fits your smallest tots, it encourages safety at the earliest possible point. So as soon as your toddler is climbing onto moving toys, he can wear a helmet. Bikes, trikes and scooters, make sure your kids, even the very little ones who go very slow, are protected. These are also great for when they are riding behind you in a bike trailer. You can never be too careful.
The Noodle is one sleek and stylish helmet and I really enjoy the solid colors. My daugher’s favorite color is red so, naturally, that is the one she chose to test. The Noodle also comes in blueberry, greenie, pink and black. The helmet features 14 air vents and an integrated bug mesh in the front vents. This is great for when they really get going! You can also see that the visor is a bit extended for maximum protection.
My tester loves her Noodle. She has two other bike helmets and she told me the Noodle is the most comfortable (hand to God). She attributed the comfort to the padded chin strap. Her main helmet before the Noodle, which I paid more for than the Noodle costs, is so uncomfortable she complains about it constantly. The nylon strap rubs her raw! The Noodle, however, features a soft pinch guard on the chin strap. Hallelujah!
Now it is all smiles…
and… scary faces?
