Pros
  • Extra padding
  • Screened vents
Cons
  • Fit isn't adjustable
  • Limited size options

The toddler version of the Lucky Bums Winter Sports Youth Helmet earns expert praise for its "fully certified and full-featured" value at a very low price, and for having lots of comfortable foam padding. In the only user review we found, the owner likes the helmet's sturdy performance at a low price point and is pleased that it "does what it's supposed to do." If you're looking for a helmet that gets a more enthusiastic reception from critics and users, the Giro G9 Junior (*Est. $80) is our Best Reviewed kids' helmet. Its wheel-adjust system helps it fit well even as your child grows.

The expert reviewer for SkiMag.com doesn't compare the Lucky Bums youth helmet to other kids' helmets, but she identifies what may be parents' two largest concerns: The helmet has a safety certification and is inexpensive, making it easier to afford another one when junior hits a growth spurt. The single user review we found on the manufacturer's website makes note of the helmet's simplicity and affordability.
