Barbie's Skateboard Helmet

By: Sindy

A skateboard helmet made by Barbie? That's right peeps. The same girl who spends so many hours shopping for new clothes and staring at Ken, has also managed to take some time to design a helmet for girls who love to skate, board or bike.

Now, the first thing I thought when I saw the Barbie helmet was, "What does that chick know about skateboarding?" Barbie's never won any world skateboard titles and I've never seen her land a 360. Well, you don't have to take Barbie's word that this helmet is good - you can just ask world champion skateboarder, Cara Beth Burnside. Cara Beth gives the Barbie helmet a double thumbs up and she'll be wearing it at several skate events during the 2003 season. Cara Beth is one of the pioneers of women's skateboarding who's skated at the X Games, so she knows what she's talking about when it comes to protecting your head.

The Barbie Multi-Sport helmet has a hard-shell with extra protection on the sides and in the back - so your noggin doesn't turn to mush if you have a nasty spill. The helmet's pink - but if that's not your color, you can always jazz it up a bit by slapping on some skate stickers. Barbie may know more about wearing half-tops than riding half-pipes, but the bottom line is, this helmet will protect your head and the price is right. It's just $19.99 US and is available now.

Boys CAN cheerlead, but chances are they will be made fun of(not by me). Cheerleaders do A LOT of physical cheers and stunts, and we use ourselves instead of gear. A lot and most people underestimate cheerleaders for just some girls with poms and uniforms going "go team! yay!" because they have seen that in movies and tv. look up some cheer comp videos and still only some people with change their view of cheerleaders as girls on the sidelines doing uncreative cheers and stupid words to match. I hope this helped you understand a little bit more about cheerleading and cheerleaders. Peace Out!

All cheerleaders and coaches put A LOT of effort and time into making and practicing cheers. It is true that cheerleaders turn people and the players on...but it's much more than that. it's about having fun, teamwork, having some more fun, getting some exercise (uh that kinda makes it a sport right?), and great times with the other girls on your squad.   Rant over lol
