2.0 out of 5 stars A review regarding FIT. Yeah, kind of a biggie., June 7, 2012
This review is from: Schwinn Toddler Classic Microshell Helmet (Sports)
I enjoy reviews... I appreciate people writing the reviews. However, after going through page after page and seeing things along the lines of, "so cute, my daughter loves the bubble print," or "perfect for my girly-girl,"...I wanted to SCREAM! There must be a more than a few people who are confused about this helmet being labeled "Toddler" but also saying "Ages 3+" right on the front. I was. But I took a chance and ordered it for my 3.5 year old. Not even CLOSE on the fit. I actually tightened up the adjustments and it fit my 5 month old. This is a BABY helmet.

I will go out on a line here and age this helmet for whoever is interested, since no one else (including Schwinn) has. Ages 6 MONTHS to about a maximum of 2 YEARS (child with head on small side.) Anything above that should get the adjustable youth size. Apart from the sizing issue, this helmet seems adequate. It is lightweight and will most certainly protect the noggin from a nasty spill.

Saving this "3 yrs+" helmet for my infant, who will probably be wearing it soon.

Thank you!!! Just what I needed to know. I've been trying to find a helmet to fit my extremely petite (just turned 2 yr old) so this should actually be perfect for us!

Thanks so much. My little one is two, but the size of a 3 yr. old. I will skip this one.

Thank you for your review too! My two-year old has a large head and even though this is cute, I will have to pass on this one as well. Do you (or any other reviewers) have a good recommendation on a different helmet? Thanks!

Thank you... my three year old has the same problem with this helmet and I'm glad to know it's not just a fluke.

Thanks for the review, I also have a petite 2 year old and helmets in the store are wayyyy to big. I am willing to take a chance on this. Thanks so much!

Thank you, I have an extremely tiny (less than 3 percentile) 2 year old who thinks she is a 5 year old. She needs a helmet for bike riding. I can't find any small enough. I will try this one.
