crazeeHeads Animal and Quilted Helmet Covers for Skiers, Snowboarders, and Ice Skaters Are Stylish and Promote Safety

The Today Show's Meredith Vieira Tops Her Helmet With crazeeHeads' Black Quilted Helmet Cover for Ice Skating Lesson With Peggy Fleming

PORT WASHINGTON, NY--(Marketwire - December 15, 2008) - For Winter sports lovers, crazeeHeads (www.crazeeheads.com) has 15 styles of helmet covers, including eight plush animal models. For kids, the crazeeHeads adorable animal helmet covers include a snow leopard, koala, panda, monkey, pig, and many other fun-loving characters. Not just for kids, crazeeHeads also offers stylish quilted models and faux animal skin models for adults.

On a recent Today Show segment, Olympic Gold Medalist Peggy Fleming gave Meredith Vieira an ice skating lesson. And to make sure she was safe, she also gave her a helmet topped with a crazeeHeads black quilted cover.

All crazeeHeads helmet covers are constructed of machine washable polyester with a cotton lining. A clever drawstring feature makes every style easy to adjust for most size helmets (from a child's XXS to adults XXL), and all can be worn with goggles.

Helmets for skiers, snowboarders, and ice skaters are becoming increasingly popular to protect against head injuries. The Consumer Product Safety Commission recommends that winter sports lovers wear helmets to reduce head injury risk. Some European resorts sell discounted lift tickets for pre-teens and teenagers who wear helmets, and some give free lift tickets to youngsters skiing with a parent while wearing a helmet. In addition, Italy and Spain insist that children wear helmets, and Austria may soon do the same.

"If a child resists wearing a helmet, parents can easily overcome their reluctance by wearing a helmet themselves, and buying crazeeHeads for the entire family," said Margaret Spiegel, President, crazeeHeads, inc. "I love seeing a family of pandas or raccoons swooping down the slopes or on the skating rink knowing that everyone is having a ball and also better protected from injury."

Suggested retail prices for the crazeeHeads' plush animal helmet covers are $34.99 - $36.99; embroidered velvet is $27.99; quilted nylons are $26.99; and faux animal skins are $23.99.

crazeeHeads are sold worldwide through retailers and distributors in the USA, Australia, the United Kingdom, and Europe, and can be purchased online at www.crazeeheads.com or by calling 1-866-4-CRAZEE (866-427-2933).
