Real Kids Shades: Protective, Stylish Sunglasses for Children & Infants (Review & Giveaway)

Everyone loves the sun. And everyone knows the sun can really damage skin - especially to kids’.  As parents, we are very careful to cover our children head to toe with sunscreen, but often forget how important it is to protect their eyes as well.  Most parents simply don’t realize the sun can also cause permanent and irreparable damage to their children’s eyes. In fact, children’s eyes are at increased risk for permanent eye damage from sunlight until they’re 10-years-old. 

Real Kids Shades are designed with children in mind.  Their infant and kids' sunglasses are specifically designed with children in mind: award winning designs, shatterproof and impact resistant and perfect for even the most active children!  They are fun, stylish, comfortable (flexible and bendable) and provide 100% protection from harmful UV rays.

Did you know that 82% of parents make sure their children are wearing sunscreen, but only 32% tell their children to wear sunglasses?

One of my favorite aspects about Real Kids Shades, other than the fact that they protect my children's eyes, is that they fit my kids little faces perfectly!  So many kids sunglasses don't fit properly and are always falling off or let the sun shine in through the sides.  

My kids have worn their Real Kids Shades in our jeep with the top down and on our boat out on the lake, and they have never had an issue with them slipping or sliding down.  The neoprene bands keep their sunglasses in place, and help make sure they don't lose them.

My kids both love their new sunglasses because they say the look like Dad's sunglasses.  My daughter loves hers because they are pink, of course.

I love the fact that there are a variety of styles that are specifically designed by age; from 0 - 12 years old, making it easy to choose the perfect sunglasses for your child.  My First Shades are simply adorable and designed for 0-24 months and 2-5 years.  Lets face it, infants wearing sunglasses are simply adorable.
Real Kids Shades are CPSIA compliant, CE certified, FDA approved and contain no lead, bisphenol A or phthalates. Oh, and did I mention they’re super cute!

Wear your sunglasses. Remember, sunglasses are not an accessory; they’re a necessity. When you wear yours regularly, your kids will follow your example.

I would choose the Glide Shades 7 - 12 Years in hot pink for my daughter. She would love them!

I think sunglasses are very important for protecting your eyes from harmful sun rays. I know that having blue eyes makes it even more important to wear sunglasses because there is a higher risk of damage due to ultraviolet radiation.

I like the Xtreme white shades. They look cool and I like the foam backing.

I really would love the Flex Duo for my son. I chose these because he'd never leave the ones with a head strap on! I always wear sunglasses myself, because I wear contacts and have really sensitive eyes.

I would pick the Xtreme Sport 3 - 7 Years in black/silver for my daughter. They look like pretty cool glasses.

I think they are very important in very bright sunlight. I wear them because the sun makes my eyes hurt.

I would pick the black flex sunglasses 3-7 for my son. He is great about wearing sunglasses. He sees both mom and dad wearing them all of the time.
