When people first see crazeeHeads helmet covers, the initial reaction is usually something along the lines of, “How cute!” Followed by, “How on earth did you come up with this idea?” It started when their fearless leader skied into a snow fence at Hunter Mountain in New York back in 1997 - breaking her nose and wrist. After the fact, her husband bought her a helmet to wear when skiing. (Brilliant!) Problem was, their Fearless One liked to wear a panda hat when she skied – but she couldn’t wear it with a helmet. And that’s how crazeeHeads was born. After many false starts, their talented pattern maker transformed a really cute panda hat into a really cute ZeeZee the Panda helmet cover. Now they've got 11 plush animals to choose from – including two with a nose that beeps! When they started selling crazeeHeads in 2003, very few skiers and snowboarders wore helmets. My, how times have changed because helmet usage is growing by leaps and bounds. Nowadays many US ski resorts strongly recommend that children wear helmets, and some require helmets for youngsters enrolled in classes. Some European countries have even stricter rules that require all children to wear helmets – no exceptions. Even adults the world over are waking up to the reality that it’s smart to wear helmets.
