Do you walk, run or ride your bike at dawn or dusk? If you do, do you use reflectors? Do you make your kids wear reflectors if they are out with you?
Well, Safees are the COOLEST reflectors! They goal of this company is to spread the use of reflectors and to “Be seen, be safe.”
I was sent 2 reflectors – the owl and a snowflake – to review.
- While my boys weren’t thrilled with the pink owl or the purple snowflake, they still thought Safees were a neat concept.
- The cord is well-made and the clip is sturdy.
- Safees are very easy to use! Just clip and go!
- I am not much of a runner, but if you are, you can order Clip On Safees so they don’t bounce around!
- The reflection is bright without being blinding.
This video is great at explaining how Safees work:
Safees was founded by Johanna Denize who is originally from Sweden and who grew up always wearing a reflector. When Johanna had her first child in 2010 she immediately noticed that strollers are at great risk for being hit since cars simply do not seem to see them. Johanna desperately tried to find quality reflectors (i.e. hard prism reflectors) to attach to her son’s stroller and herself. Not finding any reflectors that live up to the high quality found in Scandinavian hard prism reflectors, Safees was born. Johanna is on a mission to increase traffic Safety for children in the US and reduce traffic accidents and fatalities. ‘Something as simple as wearing a reflector will de facto reduce your risk of being hit by a car and potentially being injured for life or even killed. So why not take this easy, inexpensive precaution?” says Johanna.“ Our whole family wears them, we have Safees on our clothes, our bikes, our strollers and even on our pets.”
