At Real Kids Shades
they do not consider shades an Accessory, but a Necessary Gear. The Mission at RKS
in to protect as many children’s eyes as possible from the damaging effects of UV radiation. RKS
launched in 2002, when they couldn’t find an inexpensive pair of real protective sunglasses for their own kids. Their idea was to create affordable sunglasses designed specifically for babies and children.
The Wonderful People at Real Kids Shades were wonderful enough to provide me with 3 Pairs of Shades since all Children have different head shapes.
The Infant Hat/Sunglass Combo is for Babies 0-24mo and come in an array of colors! The UPF 50 Sun Hat comes with a Velcro chin strap to keep it in place. The 100% UV Protective baby sunglasses have a soft, adjustable neoprene band which I Love! These make the sunglasses wearable for long periods of time without you baby crying because the frames of their glasses dug into their little heads. There is also no more fear of kids poking themselves in the eye with the frames.
The second pair were the My First Shades in Pink Daisy for 0-24 Months. These just so happened to be my favorite ones! I LOVE how it looks on my princess 🙂 these are made the same as the infant hat/sunglasses combo ones, but instead of being able to adjust the glasses on both sides you can only adjust one. I’m not sure why the Neoprene bands on these are one side adjustable, but I’m still happy with them.
And lastly, My First Shades in Pink, 2-5yrs. These are exactly like the pink shades for 0-24mo, the neoprene bands are adjustable on both sides. I’m Excited to be able to protect my Daughter’s eyes from now at 6 Months, until the age a 5. Then, I will have to get the next sizes up!
