Dry Erase Helmet by Wipeout

Some tweens begin to loathe wearing a helmet when skateboarding or riding a bike because they feel that it makes them look uncool. Giving them the freedom to decorate their own helmet and choose from a fun selection of colors may just make them enjoy practicing safety on the roads!

Wipeout Helmets are designed as a dry erase canvas for your tween’s head! They can design the helmet with all kinds of designs, art work, and quotes — their creativity and imagination are the only tools needed to put these dry erase markers to the helmet and create a masterpiece! The best part of all is that they can have a different design daily since the design can be wiped right off and a new one can replace it in a matter of minutes!

Hot Iron Holster: Perfect for Any Teen Girl

It’s no secret that so many teen girls (and moms too!) can’t live without their flat irons and curling irons. But, all these tools we use to style our hair take up precious space in the bathroom or the bedroom. And, with those long cords and uneven surfaces, they’re constantly falling all over the place, burning everything they come in contact with (including our hands). Enter Hot Iron Holster: a heat-resistant, silicone pouch that holds any hot hair styling tool by clinging to smooth surfaces. It’s the perfect gift for any teen who loves to style her hair with hot styling tools!

The hot iron holster is the perfect addition to any teen girl’s bedroom or bathroom. It comes in four awesome colors: pink, purple, black and white. And, it saves space in tiny bathrooms or bedrooms. The super clingy material makes it so easy to stick them to the toilet tank, the sink or even a bedroom dresser all while keeping hot styling tools safely contained and right at her fingertips when she’s ready to use them.
