It sure feels like summer now. School is winding down, the sun is shining and the kids are outdoors (well, if you can pry them away from their phones, that is…) While we are all set with sunscreen and cover-ups, spending time outside also requires a pair of sporty shades…but trying to find ones that are a cross between a cheap throwaway brand and designer glasses is a tough call. Of course, you want to choose sunglasses that are actually made with protective lenses, but that won’t cost you an arm and a leg. Babiators are just the ticket. Not only do they make sunglasses designed for babies through age 7, but they have cooler, sophisticated shades for ages 7-14 (the crowd who wouldn’t be caught dead with little kid styles). All glasses in the Babiators line feature 100% UVA and UVB protection, flexible frames and shatter-resistant lenses. And if you accidentally break or lose your glasses within one year of purchase, Babiators will replace them for free (you pay the shipping). We got our hands on a pair of Aces Black Ops Black Aviators with Mirrored Lenses, and put them to the test on our resident style expert who happens to be 12 years old. Her take on the glasses? “Yeah, they’re good.” ’nuff said. See, the cool factor is definitely alive and well.
In a Nutshell: Babiators range from $20-$45. Take advantage of their current promotion: Take 25% off everything with code SUNNY.
