Growing up we never worried about the sun on our skin much, needless to say our eyes. These days we know you wear all types of protection for your skin and with new studies we protect our eyes with sunglasses. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, children under 10 years of age are at an increased risk for permanent retinal damage from the sunlight.(RKS) So it is important of everyone to wear shades, including kids. Now that we know how much damage the sun can cause we really have no excuse as parents not to protect our children. Real Kids Shades contacted me to see if I’d review a pair for them. With it the end of summer we all know the sun is still out and kids are even harder at play.
The kids quickly went to the website to check out the pairs that were available. They had them divided by age group from Ages 0 all the way up to 12. Little A picked out the Flex Duo Black Re because he thought the red looked cool and mom wanted a strap so they don’t fall off. The only gripe I have is the strap is much too hard to put on. I like the way the my first shades strap looks, but I’m guessing it is thinner because the head is bigger. It does go on just takes some time. BabyGirl liked the Glide Red, she had hoped to get it in hot pink but they were out at the time. She is very happy with the pair she did get though. Finally BalletGirl, she got the blad tortoise (brown).
If you look closely at her pants you will notice a clear plastic bag, this is where you keep the shades. You pinch the sides and it opens up to release the shades. This is perfect because it clips right onto the belt buckle which means when they take the shades off they can keep them safe and out of harms way. Depending on which style you get the shades with their case run from $14.99 to $34.99
One lucky winner will get winner’s choice of sunglasses.
