I'd like to get my 3 year old a full face helmet for Christmas and was looking to see if any parents out there know of the smallest size helmets. Awhile back at Bob's Cycle in Minnesota, I know a few of the brands size "small" was drastically different. I'd like to get him comfortable in a full face helmet on his balance bike before he gets too comfy in his bicycle helmet. Thanks for any info.

Your best bet is taking him in and trying them on. We just took my 5 year old daughter last month and some helmets I could put an adult small on her head and others a youth medium. It really just depends on the brand

Yeah. You need to have him try them on. I thought I was shopping for a youth helmet for my 5 year old. Ended up needing an adult small.

I just bought my 3yr old grandson a full face FOX helmet. They have youth S,M,L, sizes. Have him try them on, different makes will fit differently also.

Little kid giant helmet grin
He's been tearing up the coaster bike for a year. For Christmas I'm restoring an 86 schwinn 14 inch BMX bike I bought for my daughter when she was three. I hung it in the garage rafters 30 yrs ago hoping I might have a grandkid someday that was in to bikes.
