Real Kid Shades Sunglasses Review and Giveaway!

Real Kids Shades provides quality 100% UV protection sunglasses for children.  Our goal is to have every kid wear sunglasses

Summer is here and we are all enjoying lots of warm sunshine! Hiking, swimming at the pool or lake, picnics, parks, sprinklers... Everything that makes summer time so special! One of our biggest summer jobs as parents is making sure our kids are protected from sun burns. I don't know a mom that doesn't make sure she has sunscreen in her beach bag or purse in preparation for those long days in the sun. One area of sun protection I wasn't well prepared for was my children's eyes. I have always considered sunglasses to be more about convenience then real eye protection! Turns out there are plenty of risks that come with not protecting our eyes during extended periods of time in the sun. According to Real Kid Shades children under 10 are have an increased risk of experiencing any of the following eye injuries (taken from Real Kid Shades pamphlet Protecting Your Child’s Eyes From The Sun: What Every Mom Should Know.):

Eye Disorders Caused By Sun Damage Include
• Cataracts
• Age-related macular degeneration
• Pterygia – abnormal tissue grown on the whites
of the eyes
• Skin cancer around the eyes
• Photokeratitis – sunburn of the cornea

After learning about the importance of protecting my childrens' eyes during elongated periods of time in the sun I was more the happy to have the opportunity to review a pair of infant and toddler sunglasses from Real Kid Shades. So what makes their glasses different then other glasses you may find at the store? Heres what they have to say about that:

"Real Kids Shades are not toys or even scaled-down versions of adult shades. Our award-winning designs, intensive product testing, and patented construction ensure our children’s sunglasses offer the best 100% UVA/UVB sun protection available on the market today. They’re serious sunglasses fabricated with the same high-quality materials and to the same exacting standards as adult shades. We don’t believe your kids deserve anything less."

Utter cuteness! The soft band is perfect for squirmy babies and toddlers!
One of my main concerns with having my young children wear sunglasses was how I would keep them on. Would they be comfortable? Would they bother them at all, pull at their hair or smoosh their eyes? Honestly, I had flashbacks of my old swim goggles and wasn't sure how these would work! I am more than happy to share that my boys love their sunglasses! They do not pull at their hair, nor are their eyes squished! They are able to see quite well and my toddler is usually able to put them on by himself. They are quite easy to adjust for that perfect fit which is great! I was very happy to see the range of size these glasses offer. At the very largest setting the infant glasses fit my 24 month old which means the infant size fits for about 2 years. On the largest setting for the toddler glasses I have at least 2 years until we will need another pair.

Cool guy wearing his green froggy shades!
These glasses are built to last! Shatter proof kid's sunglasses allow them to be dropped over and over without lenses popping out or breaking. Because they come with a band to hold them on you don't have to worry about them getting bent out of shape either! Between that and the vast size options offered, you only need one pair. I don't know about you but that is money well spent to me!

BUY IT- You can purchase 100% UVA/UVB protective children's sunglasses from the Real Kid Shades website. They carry sizes for infants-12 years old! Be sure to check out their many colors and patterns!
