Have you seen the video of the skateboarding Australian toddler in a diaper? According to ITN News, two-year-old Kahlei Stone-Kelly hails from a family of skaters and has been practicing his skills since he was six months old. Wow — and yikes! As cute and awesome as this kid’s moves are (did you see him take that curb?), I admit, I wish he was wearing a helmet — and pants, shoes, and a shirt for that matter. So I thought I’d help him out and round up some of my favorite kid-sized helmets that are as cool as he is.
Note helmets are specific to use (skateboarding, biking, etc.) and sizing is important too, so be sure to check out the specifications on the retailer’s page. Sorry, it’s official, I’m a worry wart! What do you guys think? Am I an overly cautious mom — or was safety the first thing that came to mind when you saw this incredible video too?
