Take It From Me: Real Kids Shades (Review & Giveaway) 2 Winners! CLOSED

Real Kids Shades (Review & Giveaway) 2 Winners! CLOSED

Real Kids Shades is a leading maker and provider of sunglasses for children. By advocating sun safety through our Safe Eyes Everyday program, RKS helps parents provide serious sun protection for babies, toddlers, and kids up to age 12. All Real Kids Shades provide comfort, durability, and safety.
Although summer has ended and fall has arrived, the sun is still out beaming and your child's eyes can be damaged!
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, until they’re about 10 years old children are at an increased risk for permanent retinal damage from sunlight. Exposure to UVA and UVB rays can lead to eye disease, such as macular degeneration, which scientists now believe is a leading cause of blindness in adults.
I was thrilled to have this opportunity to review Real Kids Shades, a leading maker of sunglasses for children. When searching for sunglasses for my girls I wanted to make sure that I was purchasing shades that had 100% UV protection. What I love about Real Kids Shades is that not only do they have 100% UV protection, but they are shatterproof, definitely a kid product!
My daughters reviewed the 0-24 Pink My First Shades, 0-36 Xtreme Element Pink, 3-7 Flex Pink, 3-7 Xtreme Element Pink Gogo. Real Kids Shades is the perfect place to find the sunglasses you need for any occasion! All four pairs we received for the review were very high quality, I especially like the Flex Pink that my daughter is wearing below. The rubbery feel makes them extremely comfortable and as the name says it, they are very flexible. There are no sharp pointy edges and I am not scared that they will get broken if sat on being in the hands of my 2 year old daughter because of how bendable and flexible they are! Overall a great product.
My oldest daughter LOVES her sunglasses and she insists on wearing them anytime the sun is out! As for my youngest daughter it took a bit longer to get comfortable wearing them. Although the actual sunglasses are soft and very forming to her face, she didn't like the idea of something over her eyes, but we made a big deal out of them and praised her a lot, and now she thinks it is fun wearing her cool new shades!
Buy It!
82% of parents encourage children to wear sunscreen, but only 32% do the same for sunglasses. It’s time to take seriously the health risk sunlight poses to our kids’ eyes.
