This study summarised efforts in developing a 3-year-old FE head model, continuously scalable in the range 1.5-to 6-year-old. The FE models were transformed into one another using nonlinear scaling driven by control points corresponding to anthropometric dimensions. Procedures to mimic age-specific structural changes occurring during the paediatric development were implemented by means of transition of elements. The performances of the head models were verified on drop and compressive tests available from the literature. A stable and experimentally well-correlated family of FE models in the range 1.5-to 6-year-old was created.
