My children like sunglasses. They are a fashion statement to them more than a health benefit. I like that they can be both, functional and stylish. If you have the right type you can protect your children’s eyes while having them look cool in the process. It is never too early to get children used to wearing sunglasses. It can be a very beneficial habit.
About Real Kids Shades
Beginning in 2002, Real Kids has made it their mission to protect as many children’s eyes as possible from the harmful effects of UV radiation. They offer affordable, real sunglasses designed especially for children. Their sunglasses are made with the best materials, and they block 100% of the sun’s damaging rays. Their glasses come in five sizes to make sure there is a perfect fit for ages 0-12. They are the leader in sun protection for children’s eyes.
Real Kids Shades come to your door safely packaged in an eyeglass retainer to avoid breakage. Currently they are sending a black neoprene case, free while supplies last, to further protect the glasses, along with free shipping on products of $25 or more.
Real Kids Shades are:
- Shatterproof and impact resistant polycarbonate lens
- Wrap around frames protect from peripheral light
- Have third-party verification of 100% UV-B/UV-A protection
- Comfortable fit

Real Kids offers a new line of P2 Lens Technology, which is a polarized lens that reduces glare. When you combine this with the lightweight, impact resistant polycarbonate lens, you get a great product at an outstanding price point.
Parents, would you send your children out without sunscreen? Of course not, but do not forget to protect their eyes. Get sunglasses that have protection from UV rays and keep your children safe from permanent eye damage.
My children are sporting some great styles offered by Real Kids Shades. The boys chose polarized lenses. On the left you see Blaze in silver. All the way on the right are Blade in royal and red. In the middle, my daughter is wearing Swag in black and pink with mirrored lenses. My children were thrilled with how the glasses looked and how light they were. The polarized lenses made the sky new colors and my eldest son was very impressed with that.
They did not pinch at their ears and fit very well on their faces. They even came with straps to help keep them from getting lost when not in use. My husband really liked the silver glasses and was trying to get my son to trade him. All though sized for children, they fit adults also.
It is great that this company is informing parents of the dangers we sometimes forget to think about. I did not realize that children’s eyes are most at risk until they are ten. My children as toddlers and little guys did not use sunglasses. I wish I could reverse time, but now I know to protect their eyes. I hope other parents read this and can get an early start on protecting their child’s eyes.
