If you don't want to give candy for Easter, why not a helmet? The Easter Bunny's on a safety kick!
It's kinda like when they slip those environmental messages into kids' cartoons. One Easter basket this year is all about safety.
Yep, it's a bike helmet turned Easter gift. "The helmet is turned upside down. We filled it with colorful Easter grass," says health educator Andrea Miller. "The brain, here, is actually a stress ball."
Andrea, who is with the Utah County Health Department, says parents actually like these. "They don't want it to feel like Christmas where they have to go out and buy a whole bunch of gifts for their kids at Easter," she explains.
The helmets keep the kids safe if they biff it. Miller says with the warmer weather, Easter is prime biffing season.
