This baby is wearing a Thudguard, which was created for the toddler's safety when he is learning to walk. You can also read about it here, at Baby's 1st Head Gear. I have to say I prefer the second site name.
The first seems a tad violent. I am sorta hearing the *THUD* sound when I say it. The second, however, is just plain common sense.

Would ya'll look at this poor little fella who is attempting the dangerous feat of WALKING?
This little guy is playing it safe.
Bring on the avalanche of falling boulders and goldfish crackers.
It's like a Gap ad.
Ya'll these are actual quotes from the website....
"THUDGUARD IS NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR GOOD PARENTING OR ADULT SUPERVISION."
Ya sure? For goodness sakes, I think you threw good parenting out the window when you decided that your BABY NEEDED A HELMET WHEN HE IS LEARNING TO WALK!
How 'bout this one?
"THUDGUARD IS NOT SUITABLE FOR PEDAL CYCLISTS, SKATEBOARDERS AND ROLLERSKATERS."
Umm. Pedal cyclists? I gotta see this. First, the baby needs a helmet because walking is dangerous. Now he is riding a two-wheeler and doing sweet jumps?
Maybe he needs a helmet after all.
Last quote. I promise...
"Protect your toddlers head and make the learning how to walk experience fun for the whole family."
Oh, it's fun alright. If we strap that bad boy on Benjamin's head our whole crew will have a mighty fine time at his expense ;)
