Bright Little Eyes

It was a bright, sunny morning when an F-18 fighter pilot for the US Marine Corps, waiting on the flight line for take-off, looked out at the assembled crowd of military families and noticed something. While the adults were all wearing protective sunglasses, their children were not and had to squint in the morning sun. It turns out that children's eyes need even more protection than adults', but that kids' sunglasses often proved too easy to break. Working with his wife and friends, this pilot developed a line of super-cool aviator glasses for children. Babiators’ sunglasses are made out of durable and flexible rubber frames, so they'll hang tough through all kinds of playtime adventures. Their impact and shatter-resistant lenses block both UVA and UVB rays to protect your child's sensitive eyes. Babiators are also the only children’s sunglasses to offer a Lost & Found Guarantee: if a child’s Babiators are lost or broken within one year of purchase, Babiators replaces them…Guaranteed! Made in Taiwan.

                They must be very comfortable because my 3 month old doesn't try to shake them off. That also must mean that they work, as he has very sensitive eyes.
                It is also nice to see a company that will replace a broken or stolen product.

                  Baby has a bright future but that doesn't mean she should have to squint! We love that these kid-sized shades protect against UVA and UVB rays, and that they're made of durable, kid-safe material. Would your little aviator love these sunnies?

                  Babiators are simply the best, coolest sunglasses out there! Wish they came in my size. To make up for it, I"ve given them to all the little kids I know- these kids not only love how the glasses look, they love to wear them! I've never known another pair of sunglasses for kids that kids didn't simply rip of their face right away.

                  Bsbiators are such a find for young children. All my friends are buying them for their grand chldren. Mine are too old for them but I certainly see how important it is to protect those young eyes.

                  I'm really glad that finally someone else realized this too... I hardley ever see sunglasses on little kids. It's nice that these are 'built tough' for little hands, but $20 seems a little high...esp for growing heads!

                  Finally someone thought about protection for children's eyes! The price is a bit high, especially for the baby ones. Also, a stylish athletic head band to keep the glasses in place would help keep the sunglasses on the babies and would help prevent loss from babies pushing therm out of the stroller or off their faces while being carried.

                  There needs to be some sort of strap on it. I bought sunglasses for my baby and they either fall off or she pulls them off.

                  Babies should not wear any hard plastic glasses... that is why they make specific ones with a strap and or flexible rubber. Besides they would be broken in no time at all! And $20 is too expensive!!!

                  FInally some sunglasses I can buy for my daughter that don't have pink flowers all over them and break the second she puts them on! I definitely like the fact that they're made from rubber.

                  Thanks for voting, Jessica! These baby glasses are not made from hard plastic. They are are made from a BPA and phthalate-free rubber and feature impact and shatter-resistant acrylic lenses, so they will not break easily if baby does drop (or play rough with) them. Does this change your vote?

                  It's true about the kids' eyes needing UVA and UVB protection. Cute, classy product!

                  My two year old son and my two year old nephew have pairs of these and we love them! They've held up to every abuse imaginable and look adorable. The boys ask to wear, them, too. I give them as funky baby gifts now b/c we've gotten so much use and so many compliments from ours.

                  super cool, but needs to have a headstrap so babes/kids don't yank them off.

                  Really Cute design. Although better for the older age group. Younger (18 months and under) have a tendency to pull off and toss (and lose) sunglasses. I usually get the ones with straps on the back to hold them on the kids when they are that young.

                  If they are as tough as they say they are- it's a good gift idea for my nephew

                  $12 is a better price, considering shipping isn't free.

                  there are too many hipsters as is. No need to have babies doing it too.
