I am looking at buying a helmet for 2yo DD. Where would you go to get one?

You should be able to get a correctly fitted helmet at your local bike shop.

Kmart have them, as does Big W.

Go the bike shop, they will help you with the correct fitting.  So many people wear helmets incorrectly

We always get helmets for our son from the local bike shop - by always I mean the two that we have bought for him (outgrew the first after two years) - it's more expensive than buying from Kmart or whereever, but we would prefer a proper fit.

The bike shop would do a fitting so I would get it there.

But Big W does have a huge range as well.

DD2 just recently got her first helmet ($49.00). This was properly fitted at the local bike shop. We did the same for DS.

You pay extra, but at least you know its the correct size.
