  • "Over 318,575 baby & toddler head injuries are recorded each year!"(Department of Trade & Industry)

It's normal for young children to sustain bumps and bruises occasionally as part of exploring.  However, learning to walk in a world of hard surfaces can turn a special moment into a heart rendering incident in a flash.  Consider for one moment being the height of an average toddler.  If you're not sure about this, get down on your hands and knees and have a wander around.  Look at all the furniture and hard surfaces you would hit if you fell - both inside your home and outside in your garden.

Now imagine you have wobbly legs, you're only just finding your balance and you fall over more than you'd like to, because you're just learning to walk. Remember learning to ride a bicycle or learning to ice skate for the first time?

What are the chances of you falling over and hitting something solid?  Most homes today have hardwood floors or tiles so statistically the chances are really high.  The problem is this kind of fall is very common in even the safest homes and gardens.  The damage to a falling toddler's hands and knees can be an acceptable form of pain for learning but a head injury can be traumatic for both infant and parent.  Thudguard® goes one step further and takes the protection straight to the infants head giving you great peace of mind. 

You take the FIRST STEP and protect your toddler's brain!

Thudguard Keyfacts

Size

This stretchy, comfortable design is suitable for the ages between 7 months to just over 2 years, depending on the size of the child's head, stretching from 40 to 50 centimetres or 16 to 20 inches in circumference. It is recommended to take a measurement of your child's head first to confirm the compatibility of the Thudguard sizing.

Weight

Thudguard is one of the lightest head guards in the world, weighing just less than 100 grams / 3.2 oz. This ultra lightweight design is extremely important for an infant's developing neck muscles.

Materials

Thudguard helps cushion the forehead, side and back of the head. It is made from ultra lightweight High Density Foam and medium weight, soft-spun poly / lycra. This makes it ideal for stretching and keeping the shape of the helmet allowing it to be very durable and easily kept clean.
... should make a valuable contribution to risk reduction in a similar way to cycle helmets...
