With my kids racing around our hilly neighborhood on the Mini Kick scooters we bought for their birthdays, helmets are a mandatory part of their attire. But it’s tough finding helmets that fit little heads well– and aren’t covered in characters from the TV.
The Little Nutty helmets
from Nutcase (ha – get it?), whose motto is “I love my brain,” make
helmet-wearing fun, rather than merely a necessity, with seriously bold, clever designs
for both boys and girls.
But these helmets don’t just look great– they’re safe and
smart too. The ABS shell with inner foam plus a great venting system
keeps kids’ heads protected and fairly cool. Depending on the head
size, you can adjust the helmet with a handy fit dial in the back; even so,
make sure your kiddo’s head is in the size range. If they’re too big for
the Little Nutty, you can go up to Nutcase’s regular street helmets.
all, I love the one-handed magnetic closure which allows even my
littlest one to get her helmet on and off herself, and without nicking her chin.
I won’t say how many times we’ve accidentally done that. -Kristen
