Here at Magic Beans, we’re absolutely uncompromising about safety: if a kid is playing on something on wheels, they’re wearing a helmet! And our very favorite helmets come from Nutcase. They’re engineered with incredible care for optimal protection for little noggins, and, importantly, they’re both comfortable and cute, so your little adventurer will cooperate and wear hers when it’s needed. (We know they’re comfortable because we wear Nutcase helmets too!)
The smallest member of your family needs head protection too when she’s riding her first balance bike or catching a lift in your bike trailer, so that’s why they created the Nutcase Baby Nutty Helmet. It’s crafted for a perfect fit for ages 1+, with an extra-lightweight shell that won’t overwhelm your child, and front, top, and back venting to help them stay cool.
The Nutcase Baby Nutty Helmet also features the Fidlock Magnetic Buckle, which is my favorite Nutcase feature because it prevents the dreaded under-the-neck pinch that you get from almost any other bike helmet buckle – nobody of any age likes that! You can see how the buckle works in this video: it literally closes itself, locking firmly into place. No fiddling, no pinching, no problem. (You can read about the unexpected origins of the Fidlock here!)
The Baby Nutty Helmet is designed to fit kids with heads measuring 47-50 centimeters, and includes two sets of pads so you can tailor the fit precisely. Watch the video below to see how it’s done. Warning: major cuteness ahead!
We also offer the Nutcase Little Nutty Kids Helmet, which is designed to fit ages 2-7. It’s dual-certified, which means that in addition to protecting your active kiddo on her bike, it also provides great protection on scooters, roller skates, and skateboards. Nutcase has another video on fitting the Little Nutty coming up soon, so watch this space!
