Whether your kid is on a skateboard, scooter, bike or trike, a safe, well-fitting helmet is key to your kiddo’s safety and your sanity.  Add some cool graphics and you’ve got a home-run from our perspective. That’s why we’re stoked to come across the super stylish Little Nutty Helmets from Portland-based Nutcase Helmets.

Created by X-Nike creative director Michael Morrow (and older brother of Rob Morrow of Morrow Snowboards fame), Little Nutty helmets combine highly visual graphics with a multi-purpose helmet design and –a relief for anyone who has ever dealt with a wobbly bike helmet–a  brilliant Spin-Dial Fit System so you can make sure the helmet fits snugly.

Aside from all the good stuff, like an ABS injection shell and an EVA Shock absorbing liner,  the helmets also showcase some head-turning, giggle-inducing graphics (an 8 Ball, a Danger warning or Caution tape).

At $55, the helmet should last from toddler through five years old.
