As some of you may know my beautiful sister arrived from The Netherlands yesterday morning and as it is her first time in Australia there is plenty for her to see and do. To get her in holiday mood we have planned some trips to the beach, a visit to Melbourne and even a stay in the Grampians, it will be a busy few weeks! Just like most kids our tribe loves spending time outside and it is so important to be sun safe, not just with protective clothing and sun screen but also with sun glasses. If your kids can do with a pair of good, and of course hip, sunnies you’re in luck:

As a mum of two girls and one boy I always seem to find plenty of cute girls stuff to buy. I know many mums who think it is harder to find cool things for boys and to be honest I always thought that wasn’t true, it was more a case of knowing where to look. The only time I ever had trouble finding a certain perfect something for my little man was when I needed sunglasses, until I discovered Babiators that is.

Of course I know that you can buy (ugly) sunglasses in any cheap shop, at most chemists and online but none of them pass the hipness test. Aside from whether those sunnies can be classed as stylish or not, it is even more important to me that they are safe and offer his beautiful, precious brown eyes the protection they need and deserve. When you look closer at many of the options available you’ll realise that many of them are not as safe as you think!

Because I couldn’t find any suitable boys sunglasses my son has been sporting a purple (isn’t that just a different shade of blue?) pair from his sister, something daddy wasn’t very pleased with. Luckily this week the awesome Babiators have arrived on Australian shores and I knew I had to get the little mister a pair. They are super hip, safe and sturdy, all my wishes granted in an instant! I chose these super cool Rockstar Red Babiators, aren’t they fabulous?

The little facts: Babiators are aviator style kids sunglasses available in a Junior (0-3 years) and Classic (3 years+) design. Babiators offer 100% protection from UVA and UVB rays and they are BPA free too (we all know babies put everything in their mouths). A real big bonus: the flexible rubber frame is soft, twistable, bendable and throwable without breaking, making it a perfect choice for active Aussie kids.
