KIDZGEAR: Goggle Buttons
Butterfly Catches Big Air
A little fluttering butterfly? Not anything out of the ordinary, unless you are on the ski slope! Several years ago, while on a ski vacation with her then five year old daughter Taylor, Theresa Johnsonbaugh realized how much of a stir a butterfly could make. Taylor was wearing the original butterfly Goggle Button(r), which was designed to encourage Taylor to wear a helmet while learning to ski. This fun, brightly colored butterfly attracted so much attention that skiers were shouting from their chairlifts. Goggle Buttons(r) the "works of art you wear on your head," are unique decorative ski accessories that attach to ski helmets. They are perfect for children and skiers of all ages.
Goggle Buttons(r) offer snow sports enthusiasts the ability to express their own personal style, while providing quick identification on crowded ski slopes. The sky is the limit for design possibilities, making the artwork on each Goggle Button(r) unique. Goggle Buttons(r) were designed to promote helmet use, but they can be worn without a helmet any time a ski goggle is worn. They are easily interchangeable, and in addition to decorating your head, can also be used on golf bags, bicycles, luggage, and backpacks. They have even been spotted on pet collars.
Goggle Buttons(r) are constructed from various lightweight fabrics, such as fleece and felt. These kid-tested designs are easily attached to the strap of a ski goggle with Velcro fasteners. They are fun, durable, and functional. Why a butterfly? Mother and daughter both possess a love for nature and the outdoors, and are particularly fond of butterflies. Since that first creative idea, Theresa Johnsonbaugh has developed numerous designs in a real ski business that has snowballed, so to speak, giving her the opportunity to make a living from the love of her sport. Additional styles include colorful, flowers, dragonflies, smiley faces, eyeballs, and skulls to suit a variety of tastes.
Decorative ski helmet accessories promote safety. This makes Goggle Buttons(r) a favorite among parents, who are among the wide audience taking an interest in wearing them as well. The use of helmets by snow sports participants is experiencing tremendous growth each season with a growing number of ski schools making helmet use mandatory for students. Moreover, Goggle Buttons(r) are an affordable alternative to wearing costly helmet covers.
Look for Goggle Buttons(r) on the slopes and in your local ski shop, or visit GoggleButtons.com . Be part of the growing trend for fun and safety. Johnsonbaugh believes, "there are no limits to the possibilities for these works of art."
This butterfly has taken flight, and it doesn't intend to land anytime soon!
