I bought this to use for my toddler's first bike helmet. She loves Dora and she liked trying on her older sisters' helmets, so I figured this would be perfect for her. It meets all the government safety standards, has a cute picture of Dora on it, and is padded very well inside. It fits her well and seems to be comfortable. I like the size of the helmet, it comes down lower and seems to offer more protection than some of the other helmets I looked at.
The only complaint I have is that it is difficult to adjust the chin strap. It is easy to buckle and my toddler can even do this herself, but then I have trouble adjusting the straps so that it fits snugly under her chin and doesn't move around on her head. I do, however, seem to have this problem with most of the bike helmets my three girls have owned, so perhaps it is not a product flaw but rather a flaw on my part!
All in all, this is a very cute protective helmet for a first time bike rider. The Dora graphics will make your little one eager to wear the helmet and be safe when riding, skating, or engaging in some other potentially head cracking activity!
