My First Shades For Babies and Kids

My son is completely obsessed with sunglasses, the only problem is we can’t get them to stay on and they are usually too big for his head.

While trying to figure out how to fix both of these problems, I was introduced to ‘My First Shades’.

My First Shades was created by a mom in 2001 to encourage early eye protection and to increase awareness about the irreversible effects of UVA and UVB damage to the eyes of children.

Their sunglasses are not only cool and stylish, but they feature shatterproof and impact resistant lenses.

Because kids like a variety, My First Shades come in all shapes and styles. We have a sporty pair of NY Yankees ones and a flashy pair of green ones.

Kids aged 3-7 years can choose from an unbelievable selection that will match their style and personality. Boys who like to look cool will prefer the Infinity Shades and girls will love the ‘just for girls’ line that features over sized printed frames in delicate flower patterns.

As soon as my son saw the bright colors of his new sunglasses – he had to put them on. We have managed to find a pair of sunglasses that are not only comfortable, but easy for him play in.

Because they are secured to his head with the neoprene band , we don’t have to worry about them flying off or going missing.
