Why is it that kids love to try on sunglasses, but can never actually keep them on? I’m always trying to entice my daughter with a pair that I think she will like, ones with little characters on them from the TV shows she watches, but she won’t keep them on. Did you know that until children are eight or nine years old, they have no filters in the eye to block out UV light? The problem with cheap sunglasses is that with the tint in front of the eye, the lens opens up, which actually lets in MORE UV light and can harm your child’s eyes! Yikes!
The solution to both how to protect our children’s eyes and keep the sunglasses on has been solved by Baby Banz, the original Australian-designed wraparound sunglasses. The original Baby Banz fit children up to age 2, and Kidz Banz fit children ages 2-5. Both come in 13 different colors like Flamingo Pink and Rockin’ Red, with these important features:
*Lenses provide 100% UVA/ UVB protection
*Category 3 lenses offer high sunglare reduction and good UV protection
*Ophthalmic quality; capable of being replaced with prescription lenses
*Neoprene elastic strap matches chosen color of sunglasses and allows for flexibility, breathability, and comfort
*Side adjustable Velcro® allows for years of wear as the child grows
*Frame is made of shatter-resistant polycarbonate
*Sporty, sleek design
Kaitlyn looks adorable in hers, and they are very easy to adjust to fit. I really hope she agrees to wear them when we go out to play all summer. I’d like to get her photo posted on the “Banz Fanz” photo page! Check out Baby Banz on MySpace too, to see all the great awards they have won. I’m naming Baby Banz a MomReviews Fabulous Find and sending them a button they can put on their site, too!
