CLOSED |Christmas in November| UV Protection Sunglasses {review + giveaway} from Real Kids Shades

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED


Who to buy for :
- Infants (0-24 months)
- New Parents

Who has you covered :




I recently had the opportunity to work with Real Kids Shades on a review of their 100% UV Protection Sunglasses for infants (0 - 24 months). These particular sunglasses are from their line of Star Pupils-branded 100% ultraviolet (UV-A & UV-B) protective children's sunglasses, that not only protect your own child's developing vision, but a percentage of proceeds are donated directly to Prevent Blindness America's children's vision education initiative. 

"Recognizing that children's eyes are at special risk from the harmful effects of UV rays, since their eyes are still developing and are more vulnerable to sun damage, we developed Real Kids Shades to provide serious UV protection", says Lisa Medora, vice president of product development, Real Kids Shades. "By providing support to Star Pupils, we hope parents will make their children's eye health a priority."

I am very impressed with the quality of the sunglasses I received, as well as the attention to detail. There are no metal hinges or pointed edges, and the wrap around polycarbonate frames are held in place on your child's head by an adjustable neoprene band. These sunglasses are fantastic for that active toddler, and will protect their eyes all year long, either from the glare of the sun when you're at the beach in the summer or from the glare of the snow on your skiing holiday. I will definitely recommend Real Kids Shades 100% UV protection sunglasses to all the parents I know who have kids 12 and under. 


"Prevent Blindness America, the nation's leading volunteer eye health and safety organization, is launching its 'Star Pupils' campaign, the organization's children's platform, designed to educate parents on children's vision issues."

In the United States, Star Pupils is a campaign that is striving to educate parents about the preventative measures that can be taken when it comes to their children's eye health. Did you know that 80% of children diagnosed with a learning disability have an undiagnosed vision problem? Or that 70% of juvenile delinquents have visual problems? I believe whole heartedly in preventative measures, so I am glad to see such a large step being taken when it comes to the well being of a future generation's eye sight, as President Barack Obama explained, "No child should be falling behind at school because he can't hear the teacher or see the blackboard. I refuse to accept that millions of our kids fail to reach their full potential because we fail to meet their basic needs." And Prevent Blindness America's CEO and President Hugh R. Perry added, "Our nation's future is in our children's eyes." And this holiday season you can give the gift of healthy eyesight to your own children (grandchildren/nephews/nieces/friend's kids!) with Real Kids Shade's line of Star Pupils sunglasses for kids ages 0 to 12 years. I have a feeling these will be on my list of Baby Shower gifts, as it is really never too early to protect your children's eyesight.


Where to buy :
You can purchase 100% UV Protection sunglasses for children 0 - 12 years online at RealKidsShades.com.
