Shades for your little co-pilot

Babiators Aviator Sunglasses

Summer is upon us and I am gathering my toddler’s arsenal of sun hats, sun block–and yes, I will make another desperate attempt at sunglasses. Sunglasses on a 2 year old– I know, what’s the point? They won’t keep them on or they will be broken in 5 minutes… or will they?

Thanks to Babiators there might be hope yet for reliable help in protecting your little ones eyes from the suns harmful rays with their cute array of children’s sunglasses.

The aviator design does carry a bit of a Top Gun vibe (they were designed by a fighter pilot!) and out of the box I was a bit skeptical, but they happen to look very cute on. Babiator sunglasses also claim to offer 100% protection against UVA and UVB rays. But the best part about the glasses by far is the durability factor. They are made of pliable non-toxic rubber and claim to be almost indestructible, to the point that they come with a one-year “wear and tear” guarantee–that’s hard to beat.

Seems like plenty of reasons to consider a minimal investment in these as opposed to another pair of character branded glasses for which you’ll have for a week before they (and you) snap.

Shop the children’s aviator sunglasses from Babiators or at your local eyeglass store.

    We’ve been using Julbo baby/toddler sunglasses for my son since he was 1. (He had a big head so we started in the biggest size, and they still fit him.) They are great – they fit the same way upside down and they stay on really well (even without the included head strap). I’m wondering what our next pair of sunglasses will be….

    I love aviators, and I especially love them on my little boys. In fact, sometimes I’m guilty of matching my aviators with them… For fun, I’ve come up with a list of 4 types of moms who match clothes or accessories with their kids – see which one you are!
