Let's be real: wearing a helmet as a kid was a guaranteed way to get made fun of from all the other kids in your neighborhood. Although most parents forced their kids to wear helmets, knee pads, and elbow pads because it was for safety purposes or something like that, most kids were seen roaming the streets without anything on their head because they were way too cool for a helmet.
The cool, rebellious kids ripped off their helmets and rode through the streets free as a bird, but left their precious noggins exposed to the dangers of the world. But those days of looking lame in a helmet are a thing of the past.
This new LEGO-style helmet is weirdly amazing and entirely awesome. The design is so cool, hopefully, it will encourage more kids to care about the safety of their skulls if they can look like Emmet from The LEGO Movie, because no one is cooler than Emmet, let's be real.
Did your neighborhood have a bike gang?
Or maybe you were the lone wolf.
Or you were a cool skateboarder.
Ever seen a scooter gang?
Let's be real, no one really wore helmets.
Helmets were for losers.
Kids would throw a serious fit when their parents made them wear helmets.
Talk about a fashion faux pas.
Don't get me started on helmet hair.
Yep, that is all natural. @iamspecialized #nofilter #helmethair http://t.co/SN5Xph4oi9— Jesse Thomas (@Jesse Thomas)1381350147.0
Everyone has suffered from helmet hair.
And this is what happens when you take your helmet off after 121 laps!! @carlosainz #HelmetHair http://t.co/8RU9NiCyLF— Scuderia AlphaTauri (@Scuderia AlphaTauri)1425138349.0

We need to put our heads together!

Now every kid can live out their LEGO dreams.
You know LEGOs with their perfect hair.
The genius behind it all.
It was a group effort.NORDDDB. Simon works in Stockholm office and Claire works in Copenhagen, but they decided to come together to create perfection.
Here's the process.They teamed up with a Danish development company called MOEF to make their dream a reality using an awesome 3D printer to develop their design.
These are big bike cities.
The statistics are alarming.
via: ShutterstockThe video explains that every 5th hour, a child sustains a head injury and 44% of all kids do not wear helmets.
We must protect our children at all costs!
It's a must have.
*Must have* even though I don't have a bike!!! @batwench @jgamet @MrJamesMay #legohelmet https://t.co/4P2zHEQPMq— PrincessBagel (@PrincessBagel)1475669039.0
