Babiators Review

Go Time Green Babiators

 

As most of you know, I love shopping for my toddler. It’s so fun to dress him up while I can because someday he is going to actually tell me what he wants to wear, and stop being ok with me choosing his outfits. I’m sure I only have a couple good years left (tear) before I lose my stylist privileges with him.

When I saw Babiators for the first time, I knew I had to get a pair for London. Not only are they stylish sunglasses, but they have some pretty impressive claims. They have impact and shatter-resistant lenses, comfortable rubber frames, 100% UVA and UVB protection, and they are guaranteed against loss or breakage for one year. I know, that last one got me too – if a child’s Babiators are lost or broken within one year of purchase, Babiators will replace them. It all sounds too good to be true, right?

 

I decided to try out a pair of Babiators on London for a week to see how he liked them. I knew this might be a tough trial since I am really not good at making London try anything he doesn’t want to. He’s been a little….stubborn lately!

 

Babiators

 

When his Babiators arrived, I made a big deal about it to get him excited. It worked because when I opened the box and showed him his new pair of Go Time Green Babiators, he grabbed them out of my hands and went running. I was really worried he would break these glasses before he even got to wear them. Of course the first thing he did was hide inside his circus tent (currently situated in my living room – I’m not sure Style at Home Magazine would approve) and then he proceeded to launch the sunglasses out the front of the tent! I went to grab them before him and realized quickly that I needn’t of worried because his Babiators were made from very flexible rubber, so they were completely fine. This became a bit of an issue throughout the week which tried out his new sunglasses – because they are made from such light and flexible rubber, when you throw them they really fly! London figured this out rather quickly.

 

Our first excursion in his new glasses was to the court outside our house and in the backyard to see how he liked wearing them. He was pretty excited to wear them, and no matter how much running around he did, they didn’t fall off. Babiator’s come in two sizes – Junior which fits most children ages 6 months to 3 years, and Classic which fit most children from ages 3 to 7+ years. London’s Go Time Green Babiators were size Junior, and seemed to fit perfectly.

Once we were in the backyard London remembered how far these glasses would fly, so he threw them around quite a bit, but I wasn’t too worried because of the material they are made from, and I also had had that nice guarantee so if he lost them I could have them replaced!

Over the week we tried as many toddler-friendly “extreme” activities as possible to test these Babiators out! We went to the park and played on the jungle gym, went for walks, we went to the beach, and we even went for a boat ride. The one thing that I absolutely loved is that these glasses never fell off. They seemed to be glued to his head! It was amazing because even when he was playing with other kids and getting bumped and knocked over, the Babiators still stayed on.

On our day at the beach and boat London had his sunglasses on non-stop for 6 hours. We literally couldn’t get these sunglasses off of him. He took a short nap in the car, and when he woke up he didn’t even take the sunglasses off. I was sure he might have been uncomfortable sleeping in them so he would want to throw them off when he woke up, but that wasn’t the case. That is when I knew they were truly comfortable glasses.

I was very impressed with these sunglasses, and I love all of the colours and styles they sell. I will definitely get a few more pairs to match some of his outfits. It’s awesome to find a product that is not only stylish, but is also a safer option for your child compared to other products. In the past I have been buying my son cute sunglasses, but I know the UVA and UVB protection was not as high as these Babiators, so it’s a nice bonus that they are also safe! And yes, these are the sort of lines I feed my husband, showcasing how my purchases are all about safety for our son, and I usually leave out the part about how adorable they are!
