    Superfly makes a great fortů

    My daughter (almost 3 years old) wanted to make a fort in the living room. WB Superfly to the rescue! It does not pitch very tight, but she wasn't complaining. Don't ask about the helmet, she refused to take it off.

    Too cute! Something about a fort. Whenever you run out of options to entertain kids, a fort always captivates them for a while....

    Love it! Now when I'm drying out gear, I'll just tell the wife its a fort...

    I had to wear a helmet for 6 months as a kid. I fell down the stairs (well I flew actually) and crushed my melon on the cement wall at the bottom. Doc said I was lucky to be alive. So, to save my damaged head, he prescribed a helmet.

    Kids in helmets rock!!

    I had a kid next door that wouldn't take off his helmet - wore it all the time. We called him Helmet Boy.

    Good job on the fort poppa Raiff!

    I had an uncle in Germany named Helmut. Ok, not really but a did have a neighbour by that name, though I never saw him in a helmet.

    Enjoy the helmet years while you can. Soon she won't want to wear one because it'll muss up her hair!

    Yep, it worked for a while, then she wanted to pull on all of the lines, which was going to cause all sorts of havoc with the wall hooks it was hanging from..

    That is exactly what I was calling her! And my living room is where I staged all my lines the first time also.

    Yes, she certainly rocks, especially in a helmet!
