THE SITUATION: Approximately 1.7 million people sustain a traumatic brain injury each year in the United States, and children to the age of 4 are among those most likely to experience such an injury, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
A SOLUTION: Finding the right helmet can help keep your little one safe, and Nutcase Little Nutty Helmets come in a range of fun designs that your child will be excited to wear.
The real strength in this helmet is the comfortable design, which is rounded instead of pointed like other types. This allows your child to ride along in a seat or cart and actually lie back on the head rest. The helmet also has a magnetic buckle that is pinch-free and can be adjusted with one hand.
Never miss a local story.
THE DETAILS: An EPS inner foam provides high impact resistance and an ABS shell offers strength for a long life. The helmet includes 360-degree reflectivity, a spin dial for size adjustment and pads to help customize fit. The Little Nutty Helmet comes in a single size and generally fits children ages 2-7.
