Helmet Rap

October 2011

Thingle Toodle's latest advertisement is set to a rap song, reminding parents and children that they must wear a helmet when riding a bike or a scooter.  Helmet Rap was launched at the Melbourne Museum in October 2011 with the help of more than 100 children aged three years and under. Thingle Toodle himself was part of the fun which included a Romp and Stomp Fun Day for Children at the Melbourne Museum.

Thingle Toodle is a road safety mascot who helps deliver life-saving road safety messages to pre-school aged children and their parents. Children are encouraged to start wearing a helmet from an early age, on their first ride.

Correct helmet fitting tips:

  • the helmet should be the correct size for the child
  • it should cover the upper part of the forehead and
  • sit level on the head
