Real Kids Shades Review

A parent will always think of putting sunscreen on a child when heading out into the sun for a long time, but what about the sunglasses. I know I never really thought of it. I would think of it in the car when she was squinting, but I never thought about the aspect of the rays actually hurting her eyes. Now I feel bad!

Real Kids Shades was kind enough to send us the Flex shades in Purple. They are flexible so your child can't break them! Could it get much better?
 They also come with the strap to keep them on their little head. We love these shades and use them often. She wears them in the car, outside to play, walking to get the mail. Whatever, she's wearing them!

I'm sure we'll get a lot of use in the Sandbox and at the zoo this summer as well. I like that I'm protecting her eyes from the UVB rays!
What is now Real Kids Shades was founded in 2002 when we couldn’t find decent sunglasses for our own kids. It’s a pretty simple idea: make kids’ shades that provide 100% UV protection, and that are comfortable, good-looking, durable, and affordable so they’ll be used.
Sun Protection: All Real Kids Shades provide 100% protection from UVA and UVB rays. Wrap-around frames minimize exposure to peripheral light.
Comfort: Real Kids Shades are comfortable, many with adjustable neoprene bands to keep them on kids’ heads, where they belong.
Durability: RKS lenses and frames are made from shatterproof polycarbonate. They’ll be outgrown before they’re broken.
Safety: Always lead-free, with no bisphenol-A and no phthalates.
Many RKS styles can be fitted with prescription lenses. Real Kids Shades have been approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration and comply with all European product, safety, health, and environmental requirements. These are real sunglasses that do the same job as quality shades made for adults. After all, do kids deserve any less?

Price: These shades are an affordable $14.99. I pay $6 for glasses at Target and she breaks them on the car ride home. These are affordable considering they can't break!

Overall: ***** Love the material, they are soft. Love that they don't break. Love that they are flexible so if they get stepped on they won't break. Love everything about these!
