We’ve had many parents asking us for infant helmets this summer and with an infant of our own in the family, we know how hard it is to find one for those little guys!
The good news/bad news is this:
GOOD NEWS! The smallest helmet we have found for infants and toddlers is for heads starting at 18 inches in circumference. Tikes Bikes sells Little Nutty Helmets that adjust for head sizes from 18 inches to 20.5 inches or 46 – 52 centimeters. This allows you to use the helmet for several years as your child grows. Additionally, Oregonians will be happy to know that Little Nutty Helmets are made by Nutcase Helmets, a Portland company.
BAD NEWS… Many infant heads are smaller than 18 inches! Our little peanut’s head is a mere 41 centimeters making it impossible for him to wear a helmet safely. In fact, the reason manufacturers may not make helmets that small might be because injury prevention specialists and doctors do not recommend that children under 1 ride in a trailer, child seat or sidecar.
We know people all over the world take their infants and toddlers on two-wheeled transportation so we’ll keep looking for peanut sized helmets but until then, if you have a child that fits into a Little Nutty Helmet – we highly recommend them!

Tikes Bikes is taking Strider PREBikes and WheelyBugs to the Lake Run and Family Fun Festival in Lake Oswego, Oregon on Saturday, May 8. We’ll have a couple bike ramps and helmets along with several bikes to try out so if you want to try out a new toy – come on down!
We’ll also be giving away a Little Nutty Helmet – make sure you enter!
See you Saturday!
One of our primary focuses at Tikes Bikes is outdoor play safety. We believe every child should be wearing a helmet when playing on any toy with wheels. If you institute and enforce the rule when your kids are young, such as soon as they get their first ride-on toy, it becomes second nature to kids.
We’re excited to sell Little Nutty Helmets - they are the most unique, modern kid’s helmets on the market. The helmets have a Spin Dial Fit System to ensure a proper fit. Helmet size range fits children’s heads from 18″-20.5″ and each helmet has a fabric chin strap for comfort. For proper helmet fit to ensure your child’s safety, print the Little Nutty Helmet fit guide.
Little Nutty helmets comply with US CPSC Bicycle Helmet Safety Standards for persons age 3 and older. All helmets are glossy finish except for Urban Caution and Flower Power which are finished with matte.
Tikes Bikes carries all the Little Nutty Helmet designs – find one to protect your kiddo’s precious noggin!
