My child won’t wear hats. How can I get him to wear a Thudguard?

It is best to introduce your baby to Thudguard at an early age, as it will be more readily accepted. (The acceptance of a Thudguard will also help promote the wearing of a cycle helmet when that time comes.) If however, you present Thudguard to an older toddler, there may be some resistance, as most children don’t like to wear hats at the best of times. It is easier to try putting on a Thudguard to your child when he is preoccupied with playing or just before leaving the house or going out to the garden. Sometimes if its all done fast with excitement, there is no time for the toddler to realise he has had the hat put on! If it doesn’t work first time, don’t let it ruin your child’s fun, after all, it’s more important to develop emotional skills than motor skills. Try again another time with gentle perseverance and praise. It will work eventually.

Thudguard Keyfacts


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.


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.


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.
