Toyo Safety - Folding helmet for emergencies


After the 2011 Tohoku earthquake, many people here realized how important it is to prepare an emergency kit, just in case. Probably they bought some emergency food or a flashlight, but I guess they couldn't save extra time or space preparing a helmet. Neither could I.

For those who haven't bought a helmet yet, the "BLOOM" folding helmet for emergency purposes, sold by Toyo Safety, might be a worthwhile product.

You can keep "BLOOM" as it's folded, and you can pull a string connected to the helmet and shape it like a helmet in a state of emergency. Anyone, including kids, can use it easily.

"BLOOM" won the Good Design Award 2013.

Price: About ¥4,000
Color: White, Orange, Gray, Lime
Weight: 430g
