Why Your Child's Eyes Need Protection
Children's sensitive skin needs sunscreen to limit dangerous UV exposure and their eyes need protection too. Here are the facts:
When compared to adult's eyes, children's eyes have fewer natural protections against UV exposure, making them more likely to be damaged.
The more time you spend outdoors, the more susceptible you are to sun damage. Published scientific research concludes that up to 50% of lifetime UV ray exposure may occur by age 18, so it’s imperative that we protect our children's eyes now!
According to Dr. J. Keller Wortham, a physician with Optimum Wellness Family Medical Group in Los Angeles, excessive exposure to the sun during daily activities can contribute to cataract formation, macular degeneration, pinguecula and pterygium (growth on the eye's surface), photokeratitis (snow blindness), and skin cancer on the eyelids. Those are a lot of big words, but the bottom line is this: protecting your children's eyes is critical.
The EPA recommends you wear sunglasses even on days with a low UV index!
Given that children's eyes do not have as many natural protections from UV, children spend more time in the sun than adults, and time in the sun can lead to permanent eye damage, we feel it just makes sense for kids to wear sunglasses!
When it's bright outside, adults wear sunglasses - our children should do the same!
Babiators comply with all Applicable CPSIA and FDA regulations.

This product is for small children and adults with very small heads only! Normal adults who want to look awesome will have to get less cool, non-babiators sunglasses.
I bought these sunglasses for my 3mo baby since she squinted her eyes with the sun light even being on the shade. Well, not anymore!
They are big and tend to slip down the nose, but that was expected since they are supposed to fit up to 3yo and babies' noses are tiny. I was afraid they would not be comfy for her but the material is a little rubbery, which is also great to make them more difficult to break. There is no case for them but I found out that they fit well on the space created by my sunglasses when they are folded so I carry them both in the same case. The Babiators are better protected and it saves space too.
About people's reaction, everybody found them cute and a great thing to have in order to protect the eyes of our little ones. We also had some laughs comparing her with Pitbull and CeeLo since she does not have much hair yet ;)
I love that Babiators offers to replace the sunglasses if they get lost or broken, so do not forget to register them on their website! Of course, they will only do it once but it is a peace of mind.
So, two reasons for the missing star: the back strap so that they stay in place (it should be a must) and the design. White with black letters... not ideal, although I have seen on their website that now the letters come in light grey for the wicked white model, much better.
Somebody complained they are not polarized, well, Babiators do have polarized versions if you are willing to pay more than double and those come with a cute box.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
