Along with SPF 10,000 and a good hat, I’m all for protecting my kids and their baby blues (and browns and greens) this summer with a good pair of sunglasses. We’ve tried a lot, but one of my favorite brands of kids’ sunglasses may be Babiators, which not only shield their eyes from the sun, but also come with an amazingly forgiving replacement guarantee that seems to be made with my forgetful kids in mind.
Babiators’ Lost and Found Guarantee insures that if your kids misplace their glasses at the beach or accidentally sit on them at the playground, they’ll replace them at no charge, other than shipping, for a full year after purchase. That’s a whole year of worry-free, glare-free, squint-free flips on the jungle gym or waves-over-the-head dunks in the ocean.
I love the guarantee, but I love the glasses themselves even more, with their flexible rubber frames, bright, kid-friendly colors and designs, and impact-and-shatter-resistant lenses that filter out 100% of those harmful UVA and UVB rays. Original Babiators come in a rainbow of solid colors from Violet Pilot to Hello Yellow, though I’m especially fond of their glare-free Polarized Babiators which have cool designs like Cool Camo and Zippity Zebra which you might not wear your self, but I bet your kid sure will.
