    When your child takes to the bike, roller blades, scooter, or other high-speed outdoor sport, a good helmet provides important protection for their head. Helmets made for kids generally have some kind of hard plastic coating over a foam base. The foam base provides an impact barrier if your child falls. There are several factors to consider when choosing a helmet for your child. Consider the fit of the helmet. Most have an interior band, which can be adjusted for a secure fit. There are several sizes for children’s helmets. You cannot just buy a one-size-fits-all brain bucket and expect it to grow with your child from toddler to teen. Good padding makes the difference for comfort. You will need to purchase a helmet that fits their head now. For kids who are hesitant to wear a helmet, parents can choose one of the many on the market with cool designs, or models that look like animal shapes. These helmets help combine safety and fun to make everyone happy.
