Editor's Notes

May 27, 2020:

Goggles can open up a whole new underwater world for children. Whether your children are afraid to open their eyes underwater, or simply don't want to deal with the irritation that exposure to chlorine often causes, the pairs on this list can help, not to mention provide them with a crisp and clear view.

While it may seem that all goggles offer pretty much the same experience, that actually isn't true. Everything from the form of the lenses to the gasket material to the size and design of the strap can make a huge difference. Since kids can be notoriously picky about their things, style can come into play too. We wanted our recommendations to offer enough variety that there would be something to suit every child.

The Aqua Sphere Kayenne Junior scored high marks due to their oversized, triangular lenses. Not only does this allow them to provide a wide field of view, but it also makes them significantly more comfortable for many wearers, as the gasket won't be so close to their eyes. The Aqua Sphere Moby also feature slightly oversized eye cups. Speaking of comfort, the Triton Frogglez must be mentioned. Rather than a silicone, plastic, or rubber strap that has the potential to yank out hairs, these feature a soft neoprene strap that holds the goggles securely in place without any discomfort.

If we are focusing on style, the Tyr Tie Dye Swimple and Bling2O Painted Zebra take center stage. The former, as its name implies, has a cool tie die color scheme, while the latter has a wide rainbow strap and decorative multicolored studs around the frame.

The Sborti Swim is a basic option that comes as a set of two for an affordable price, making it ideal for twins or parents who want to make sure their child always has a backup pair on hand if they lose or break their main pair.

If heading to the beach instead of spending a day at the pool, we recommend a snorkeling set for kids, rather than goggles. These will allow them to spend more time having fun and hunting for underwater life without having to constantly pick their head up for gasps of air.
