I was born and raised in sunny Florida, and as a kid I spent most of my time outdoors! Playing outside, at the beach, you name it, but one thing I never did was wear sunglasses. Then fast forward to today living in sunny California- I was looking in the mirror because it felt like I had something in my eye, when in reality it was tiny clear raised bumps called pinguecula. They aren’t dangerous, but can extend over the cornea of the eye and cause visual problems. So, my eye doctor immediately asked where I was from and did I spend a lot of time out doors without eye protection. The answer was yes, I didn’t know not wearing sun glasses could effect your eyes in that way, and I am sure many of you out there don’t either. Who more than our kids delicate eyes should we protect? There are so many kinds of sunglasses out there but finding a great pair that is not only cute, but blocks out all the harmful rays from damaging our little ones eyes can be a tough task. Well the folks at Julbo have found a way to make stylish and protective eye wear for kids as well as adults!! Julbo is the only sunglasses manufacturer that offers a complete range of eye wear for kids from infancy to teens. About Julbo USA Kids:
We were able to try out a pair of Julbo’s sunglasses- the Booba
We received the Booba in the violet and lime color- my daughters favorite color is purple!! She loved them from the get go, which is kind of important if you want them to keep their glasses on!! What I loved about the Booba versus other brands I have tried is that the frame covers more area around the face, thus protecting more of their eyes. I don’t see hardly any harmful rays being able to get by these amazing sunglasses!! Also, they have a really soft finish on them, but still remain durable at the same time!! Perfect for active kids who love to pull on their glasses!! The Bulbo glasses from Julbo come in 4 different color choices, so I am sure you will find one that your little one will love. Personally, I love the violet lime combo as well! I absolutely LOVE these glasses and am so glad my daughter has an amazing pair of sunglasses to protect her developing eyes from any damage that the sun can cause!! They are a bit more pricy than a pair you would pick up at your local stores, but if you consider the 100% protection of UVA,B and C rays, and how durable they are, it is well worth the price for your little ones eyes!! They have some really adorable looping sunglasses for little ones under 3 too- you should go check out all of their amazing styles!!
