Petzl Introduces First-Ever Headlamp for Children

July 25, 2017

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (July 25, 2017) – Petzl, the leader in lighting and verticality products, today introduced the TIKKID: a fun, brightly colored headlamp for children.

“Parents will appreciate this new headlamp for children as its battery compartment is tamper-proof and it has an automatic shut-off,” said Ben Eaton, marketing manager for Petzl. “Ever child should be able to explore, even in the dark.”

With a wide 20-lumen beam that offers comfortable vision while protecting young eyes, the TIKKID is Petzl’s first headlamp designed for children. It can be used for reading or playing, inside or outside the house.

The compact headlamp has three lighting modes; low mode, which is ideal for reading; high mode, for everyday activities; and white blinking mode, for long-distance visibility.

The TIKKID is a hybrid headlamp. It comes with three standard batteries, but also is compatible with the Petzl CORE, a high-capacity Lithium-Ion 1250 mAh rechargeable battery that guarantees high-performance lighting. To keep the batteries from dying quickly, the TIKKID automatically shuts off after one hour.

The TIKKID headlamp costs $24.95 USD and is available in January 2018. For more information, please visit www.petzl.com.
