For 1- to 3-year-olds: Nutcase Baby Nutty Bike Helmet. Made with superior EPS padding and designed to grow with your child’s head up to 50 centimeters, the Nutty is both functional and adorable.

For 3- to 4-year-olds: Radio Flyer Lean ’N Glide Scooter. This no-frills scooter helps preschoolers perfect their balance and coordination skills, thanks to its lean-to-steer technology. And the light-up wheels are pretty nifty, too.

For 3- to 5-year-olds: Giro Dime Helmet. Lightweight and vented but made with a tough outer shell and an impact-absorbing EPS liner (meaning it’s sleek and breezy but still has heavy-duty protection).

For 5-year-olds: Globber 2-Wheel Adjustable Scooter. While kids are now officially ready for two-wheelers, this scooter helps ease them in, thanks to limited steering ability that makes it difficult to veer off course.

For 5- to 8-year-olds: Razor V-17 Helmet. Designed by the scooter company that started it all, this helmet features ergonomic interior padding and 17 top and side vents. We love it for the $17 price point.
