Real Kids Shades - Protecting Our Children's Eyes from Harmful UV Rays - Review & Giveaway - ends 5/21 US

I received children's sunglasses from Real Kids Shades for this review, and I know you are going to love them.

As a parent who lives in the harsh environment of the desert, I always worried about my children's eyes as they were growing up.  I was able to get the proper sunglasses that would give me full protection from the harmful UV rays of the sun, but what about my children's sunglasses?  The desert sun just beats down upon us with it's super brightness all year round.  It would have been wonderful to find good sunglasses for my kids.

Children's sunglasses were always readily available from the toy department of my local nationwide big box store.  But to me, that's all they were - a toy from the toy department.  When they broke, they really broke, too!  The jagged edges of the plastic scared me so much that I stopped buying them for my kids.  As my children got older, I was able to purchase for them adult sunglasses.  But now that I am in a position to be a grandmother, I am once again pondering over the idea of sunglasses for little ones.

Lucky for all of us mothers and grandmothers, there is a company that does make sunglasses with full UV protection for children and babies.  Real Kids Shades are the makers of  sunglasses for children since 2002.  They offer a line of eye protection for babies to children up to age 12.   These are practical sunglasses for children.  They stay on, and offer 100% UVA/UVB protection. 

I was sent the Xtreme Elements and the Sun Hat Combo Kit to review.  These are great sunglasses that my older kids are jealous of, because my future grandchildren will be getting these!  They are durable, yet flexible.  I love how they are shatterproof - both the lenses and the frames.  No worry about eyes getting hurt here.  I know that my grandchildren's eyes will be protected against those harmful UV rays.  All the sunglasses from Real Kids Shades are FDA approved for protecting children's eyes against dangerous exposure to UV rays.

The Sun Hat Combo Pack was my daughter's first choice for her future little one.  A little baby's skin is so sensitive to the sun.  As a parent who has lived in a desert for over 20 years, I learned to protect the skin of my babies to the searing desert sun.  A babies head, usually with just a sparse coating of hair, is just as important to protect as his/her eyes.  These sweet glasses come with a Sun Hat has a Velcro® closure chin strap, a wide brim that shades the entire face and is made with soft polyester and cotton that offers UPF 50.

Comes in a soft plastic zippered case, the Sun Hat Combo Pack is perfect for children 0 to 24 months.  As you can see, my daughter is hopeful for a boy as she wanted the blue, but this also comes in pink for girls.  For only $28.99, this combo pack with both the wide brimmed hat and the stay-in-place sunglasses, this is a great deal.

These next sunglasses I really love.  The are for ages 0 to 36 months, the Xtreme Elements Sunglasses.  Not only do they have the 100% UV protection that is with all of Real Kids Shades, but they have an extra benefit.  They have frames that are foam-backed polycarbonate for comfort and durability.  Little kids, as they learn to crawl, run, walk (it seems like it's in that order), have a tendency to fall, too.  The foam-backing will cushion the tender area around the eyes.  To keep these glasses on your child's head, it has the comfortable and adjustable neoprene strap.

The Xtreme Elements for 0 - 36 months and come in two colors for this size: navy and pink.  This style also comes in a larger size for older kids ages 3 to 7.  The older children model comes with all of the great features as the younger glasses, but also with many more color choices: red, silver, white, navy, and pink.  These sunglasses, which includes a MicroFiber sleeve to clean lenses and protect the shades, are only $19.99.  What an excellent value for the peace of mind knowing that your children's eyes will be protected with these UV400 protected sunglasses.

Real Kids Shades have been making 100% UV protection sunglasses for our children since 2002 for children up to 12 years old.  Real Kids Shades have quality glasses for children in three different age sizes: 0-3; 3-7; and 7-12 years in so many different fashionable styles that are sure to please.  These glasses are made just for children in mind - for the shape of their faces and for their fun lifestyles.
