Not so long ago, if you wanted sunglasses for your child you were limited to cheap, mass produced items that were ill fitting and later proven to do more harm than good and did little in the filtering out of UV rays, the purpose for which sunglasses are intended. The good news is that now there is an amazing array of sunglasses available for kids that not only keep out those UV rays but are also bang on trend and so fashionable your kids won’t want to take them off.
Many of the top brands of children’s sunglasses come from Australia, and with the heat problems there, as well as some of the harshest UV rays in the world; it makes sense that they should be the pioneers of this type of eye wear for kids. One of the best kids items you can buy are the Squids floating sunglasses, a unique design for 4-10 year old that, thanks to the material they are made of, float on water so there is no need to remove the shades before going swimming.
The lightweight and flexible frames of the Squids sunglasses stay firmly in place on small faces, and give those peepers the best protection possible. The category 3 lenses give 100% protection from UV rays, complying with European standards, and the molded shape of the frames ensures that there is no chance of any peripheral UV rays sneaking in either. A tough and impact resistant polycarbonate is used to create the lenses, and they repel water thanks to their hydrophobic coating.
The science behind the Squids floating sunglasses is simply’ the lightweight frame contains EVA foam inserts, and it is these that allows the glasses to float. All kids love splashing around in water in summer, and whether it is a paddling pool in the back garden or a swimming pool in Europe, you can protect their eyes at all time with a pair of Squids floating sunglasses.
