Pig-face deluxe children's helmet


The pigface deluxe kids helmet is a great accessory for any budding young knight and would make the perfect finishing touch to any medieval fancy dress costume!

This is an authentic looking helmet with the iconic shape of a 14th century bascinet helm; with its high level of detailed decoration this helmet really stands out from the crowd.

Made to look as realistic as a plastic helmet can, this pigface helm is burnished silver with burnished gold edging and detailing around the visor and bottom of the helmet.

This pigface helm is not just good looking though, it has been manufactured from flexible polyurethane that is perfect for rough play, being built to withstand the battles that any brave knight may face.

The durable polyurethane composition means that this kid's pigface helmet is virtually indestructible, the helmet will still return to its original shaper even if it accidentally gets stood or sat on, to give you hours of high quality use.

The visor on the helmet pivots upwards like a real knight's helm giving the wearer a chance to look at their opponent and their surroundings before sliding it down and charging into battle.

When the visor is lowered the helmet has two slits to see through as well as small holes to allow peripheral vision for safety.

The pigface helm (also known as the bascinet helmet) was a popular choice of armour in both the late 14th and early 15th centuries.

The visor is pointed which gave rise to the nickname 'pigface' and 'dogface'.

The unique shape of the helmet means that the 'point' or 'muzzle' would provide additional deflection from the face of the wearer.

Although this helmet has primarily been designed for use by children, the generous size means that it will fit the heads of some adults.

The design of this pigface basinet helmet is very detailed with features that are highly similar to our replica pigface basinet adult helmets.

We also stock deluxe swords, in a matching burnished silver and gold finish made from the same strong material.
