Real Kids Shades Eye Protection For Kids Review and Giveaway

Everyone knows that the sun can damage the skin and most parents know to whip out the sun screen to lather on their family before they go outside as a protection from harmful UV rays. But did you know that UV rays from the sun can cause permanent damage to the eyes. Eyes can not repair themselves like the skin can and the damage can build up over time. UV rays can also still do damage anytime of the year and even on overcast and cloudy days. This is why it is so important to protect not only your whole family's skin, but also their eyes when they are outside.

Real Kids Shades is a great company that promotes sun eye protection for kids. They sell a wide variety of stylish sun glasses with super sun protection for babies, toddlers, and kids up to age 12. These sunglasses have a number of wonderful features which make them even more desired for a parent to purchase for their kids:
  • Third-party verification of 100% UV-A/UV-B protection
  • Durable - shatterproof and impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses
  • Wrap-around frames to protect from peripheral light
  • Comfortable fit - not too tight, not too loose
  • Transparent enough to see your child's eyes
  • Tested to contain no lead, BPA or phthalates
  • Affordable - prices range from $14.99-$39.99
Teela received the Flex Duo Shades for 3 - 7 Years in Purple/Pink to try out. The Flex Duo Shades for 3 - 7 came with a reusable pouch and removable neoprene® strap. They have flexible rubber frames that are a great fit for Teela's head. They are also rustproof and waterproof proving to be great when she is playing in water or in the rain. I had a lot of trouble getting the neoprene® strap on her sunglasses, so I just left it off. It would be a great addition if I could get it on easier. Teela does keep the sunglasses on her face so hopefully she won't misplace them or have them fall off. She really loves them and wanted to wear them all day when we first got them. I had to tell her they were only for outdoor use. So when ever she goes outside now she puts them on.

Jaedan received the Xtreme Gear Convertible for 7 - 12 Years in Silver to try out. The Xtreme Gear Convertible for 7 - 12 Years came in a reusable zippered case with foam padding inside. They have a small button on each side where you can slide the temples (arms/sides that are placed over the ears) off and replace them with bands that snap into place and can be adjusted. Before putting them back in the case you have to put the temples back on or they will not fit. Also, even with proper adjusting my son had problems with the lenses fogging up. I am not sure what to really do for this issue. Otherwise he really liked them and thought they looked cool on him.

Prize: Win one pair of Real Kids Shades - winners choice (style, size and color).
