I thinking by 'toys' he meant like toys compared to the quality of helmets in his shop (not literally toys). Either way I think this myth has been busted for now Im very glad to say
Another thread got me thinking..
Did you know that the bike helmets they sell in places like Big W, Kmart, etc are actually classed as 'Toys'.
I actually found this out when I went to the local bike shop to purchase my son a helmet and after a lovely chat with the owner he told me this.
I was horrified that that shops are aloud to sell helmets that are not proper helmets. If I hadnt spoken to him, I would have never known.
It makes me shudder to think of all the parents thinking they are doing the right thing by buying a helmet that is actually not fit for the purpose it is sold as intended.
Feel free to share anything else you may have discovered that you'd like people to be aware of
