review: babiators

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it doesn't really get much cuter than a kid in sunglasses. Take this Little Gal below. Obviously I'm biased, but there is just something completely adorable and hilarious about her wearing sunglasses, and it happily brings a smile to my face every time she puts them on.



Fellow New Yorker and mom-to-be, Molly Fienning, is the co-founder of Babiators, a line of sunglasses for kids that are fashionable, durable (as in you can bend these suckers to death and they don't break. Parents to toddlers, you hear what I'm saying) and are BPA-free. Most importantly, they offer 100% protection against UVA and UVB rays. Sunshine, I love you, but you're dangerous -- we put on sunglasses when we go outside, why wouldn't we do the same for our kids? Especially when you have a toddler that yells "bright! bright!" when you head out the door...

Babiators come in a range of colors for your tot, either in Junior Babiators (age 1-3) or Classic Babiators (ages 3+) and have been featured everywhere from Newsweek to Cool Mom Picks. So obviously, we're talking about the coolest eyewear around for your kiddo. Yet another plus? Babiators donates a portion of proceeds to the Children's Eye Foundation, whose mission is to eliminate preventable blindness in children.

Coming in mid-September, Babiators will be running a photo contest (of your tot in an adorable pair of sunglasses, of course) with the winner receiving a $1,000 towards his/her child's future college education -- how cool is that?!  Check out their contest page and follow on Twitter for more details coming soon.

I truly love promoting mom-owned businesses, and the fact that Babiators is a socially concious and fashionably hip company to boot? Well, that's just the "eye"-cing* on the cake.

*Please excuse cheesy word play as am currently sleep-deprived...


Babiators generously provided me with a pair of sunglasses for this review. All opinions expressed herein are my own.

We bought a pair of Babiators a few weeks ago. My daughter needed sunglasses for the summer and a friend mentioned Babiators. My daughter LOVES them and she gets so many compliments.
