Sunglasses by Babiators
Turn your preschoolers into hipsters by getting them their own pair of aviator sunglasses, BABIATORS. These cool sunglasses are made out of flexible rubber which bends but doesn’t break when your toddler plays with them and twists them around. Unlike other sunglasses that look bug-like, these give a poised look and fit nicely on their face so your kid won’t constantly be taking them off. They can be purchased in standard or polarized shatter- and impact-resistant lenses.
Completely non-toxic and compliant with all the applicable CPSIA and FDA regulations, the rubber frames of Babiators can be safely chewed on (though we don’t recommend you use it as a teether) without a worry in the world. If that’s not good enough, then behold Babiators’ 100% lost and stolen gaurantee. If the sunglasses are broken or stolen, they will replace them! What else do you need to make sure that your toddler’s eyes are protected from the harmful UVA and UBA rays? Plus they come in a super cute case that can be hooked onto a stroller or diaper bag.
