I received compensation for my participation, but my review and opinions are my own.
My creative 7 year old is always on the search for the impossible- accessories with her own flare. She’s a mix of a gamer chick and a princess. She’s athletic and strong willed, and not easily satisfied if she doesn’t find things she likes. Almost everything she owns is artsy and customizable to suit her style, because she can never go to a store and find something that’s “just right.” With spring time and bike season just around the corner, it’s time to start looking at a new bike and protective gear for her because she’s outgrown everything. I wasn’t looking forward to this- only because I know how hard it is to find exactly what she’s looking for. You see, once she has something specific in her mind, it’s hard to get her to settle for anything else. This can be good and bad. I love how artistic she is but being that I don’t have an artsy bone in my body, I really can’t relate. When she saw an ad for a Wipeout Dry Erase helmet, she knew instantly that it was something she had to have. She explained how she can customize her bike helmet to whatever style she wanted, and if she felt like changing it she can easily do that by just wiping away her old art and making something new. It sounded good in theory, but I needed to know how well it worked before I settled on the $25-30 price range.
Wipeout Dry Erase helmets come in a variety of colors. She chose teal as her backdrop and it came with 5 dry erase markers and a few stencils to get her started. Right away she had something in her mind and it freely flowed from her hands to her helmet, creating whimsy artwork that was her own. When she didn’t like something, she easily wiped it off and started again.
To go along with the Wipeout Dry Erase Helmet, there is also a protective gear pack which includes wrist guards, knee pads, and elbow pads. My almost-5 year old would probably get the most use out of them so she started on her own designs.
Is Wipeout worth the price tag? If you have an artsy child who takes pride in their designs, I would say ABSOLUTELY. My 7 year old is ecstatic about wearing her bike helmet once all the snow melts and she can finally get outside. Find out more by visiting the company on Facebook and Twitter.
