As with anything for a young child, safety was a top priority for us when identifying the best baby sunglasses. All of the options on this list are free of potentially dangerous chemicals like bisphenol A, and they all provide a high level of UV ray protection to keep those sensitive young eyes healthy.
If your child will be wearing their sunnies in or around the water often, we think the Roshambo Shades are a top choice. Since they are designed to be buoyant, they will float if dropped in the pool or ocean. Plus, they are polarized to help reduce the harsh glare bouncing of the surface of the water. If you are hoping to avoid the chances of them being dropped entirely, you may want to look at the Bib-On Top Flyer, Julbo Looping, Baby Banz Ultimate, and Tuga UV 400, all of which feature some kind of strap. In fact, the Baby Banz Ultimate and Tuga UV 400 forego the traditional stiff temples entirely and, instead, utilize a stretchy neoprene band that wraps around the child's head to secure them in place.
The Roshambo Shades and Fctry Hipsterkid closely resemble Ray-Ban's popular Wayfarer design, so if you were hoping to get your child a pair that match your own, either of these would be a good choice. The Kushies Dupont and Minishades Polarized Classic also have designs that look just like adult models, but in miniature.
While most of the options on this list shouldn't pinch little fingers, with the Julbo Looping there is literally no chance of that happening, since the arms don't have any hinges. Of course, with either of the armless models mentioned previously, you can also avoid the any possibility of pinching, though there is a chance kids may find them annoying to wear, as the band does have to be tight enough to hold the shades in place.
Since children are notoriously rough on their items, we think parents can appreciate the one-year free replacement guarantee that comes with the Babiators Aviator. This covers you even if you lose them or break them in a manner that you know is completely your fault.
Ki Et La Diabola 2.0 The Diabola 2.0 are a fashion-forward pair that offer a love it or hate it style. At just eight grams, most babies probably won't even notice they are wearing them, which may just help ensure they stay on a little longer. Also, thanks to a reversible design, they can evolve with your child as their face grows. kietla.fr
