Makers of the Razor Scooter know that children will take a tumble from time to time which is why they offer knee and elbow pads to go along with their helmets. But regardless of riding a scooter, balance bike or even a tricycle, know that a well fitting toddler helmet is the best protection to reduce head injuries.
What impresses me the most is that the Razor V9 is designed to protect children from ages 1 to 4. The additional padding can be added for the younger wear yet when removed accommodate most four year olds. This will give plenty of time before outgrowing and forcing you to going out and buy a larger youth-sized helmet.
The light blue color works for either a little boy or girl but the Razor V9 has a really nice looking design for girls called Maggie???s Flowers. The helmet fits little heads 19 to 21 inches in diameter.
Although Schwinn and Bell make toddler helmets, they are slightly more expensive. They have additional designs unlike than the plain blue Razor V9. My preference is something that fits better and can adjusted as the child grows. After all, it is common to add decals to helmets for that personal look. But if a fancy creative design helps you to get your son or daughter put and keep a helmet on, go for it.
