You may feel ‘real’ summer is still a little while away but it won’t be long until you hear the first ‘slip, slop, slap’ ads on TV. Even if it doesn’t seem very sunny yet you always have to be aware of harmful UV rays and protect your little one’s eyes when out exploring the beautiful Australian outdoors. If you are struggling to find sunglasses that stay put during all that running and jumping I’ve got good news for you, check out the awesome new Kiddie Concepts Kids Sunglasses:

Just like the rest of the Kiddie Concepts range these cool sunnies have been designed by a clever Aussie mum who knows what works and what is really important. The first thing to look for in good sunglasses is the level of UV protection, anything less than 100% is not good enough and if no details are mentioned please assume they are unsafe! Luckily Kiddie Concepts offers great peace of mind as all new Kiddie Concepts sunglasses provide full 100% UV protection, including UVA, UVB and UVC.

Also, because these sunglasses are created especially for children they have to be absolutely safe. Another tick for the new Kiddie Concepts arrivals as they have passed Australian Standards Category 3, AS/NZS 1067:2003 with flying colours, they are free from BPA-free (yes they know children like to ‘taste’ the legs) and the lenses are shatter resistant. The flexible, shock-absorbing frames are built for busy kids with an active lifestyle. If you have experienced the nuisance of sunglasses with straight legs that just slide of the ears you will love the innovative ‘wrap around’ legs that follow the natural curve of a childs head, keeping them nicely in place.

Kiddie Concepts Kids Sunglasses are available in sizes 6-36 months and 3 years+ and you can choose from a range of different colours to suit both boys and girls. Also available is a handy Sunglasses Strap ($4.50, sold separately) which you can attach to your child’s new sunglasses so the chances of them slipping off or getting lost are even further reduced. With a friendly $22.95 pricetag these hip sunnies are very affordable and definitely a must-have for the upcoming summer seaon.

As a mum of four little ones we have gone through quite a few pairs of sunglasses already. Some of them got lost but most of them died a tragic death by breaking, twisting, bending, being crushed, jumped or sat on. So far these cute pink Kiddie Concepts Sunglasses are proven a real hit, as you can see miss just-turned-3 even tested if they would stay put when you jump and they do! Our youngest daughter has just turned 6 months old and the ‘baby size’ is a fabulous fit for her, she did not pull them off which means they are comfortable and the lenses sit extremely well around her eyes leaving very little gaps for sun to sneak in. I am absolutely thrilled by the great fit as that is something that’s hard to get right for wiggly babies.

If you are a regular reader of Hip little one you probably know that if at all possible I try to avoid products that contain BPA. Although there are still many baby products available that do contain BPA the market for BPA-free products is growing rapidly and hopefully more and more parents will start to realise that it is better to be safe than sorry and your child’s health is nothing something to gamble with. One company that understands the importance of this and is determined to make a difference is Kiddie Concepts.

Kiddie Concepts is an Australian family business with a passion for safe, healthy and reusable alternatives for modern families. They have combined these three important factors in their innovative Adaptable Kiddie Bottle, a reusable stainless steel kids bottle that is free of BPA, has no tiny gaps for bacteria to hide in and is non-toxic and non-leaching. What really makes this bottle stand out from the crowd is the fact that it grows with your baby and easily transforms from sippy bottle to sports bottle.

The original Adaptable Kiddie Bottle ($27.95) comes complete with an Avent Sippy Top and handles and is compatible with (nipple) teats and sippy tops from other leading brands too. This makes it really easy to replace worn or broken parts, you just buy them at your local supermarket or chemist. As baby grows and becomes a more independent, mess free drinker you can change the sippy top for the Kiddie Concepts sports top ($7.95).

The Adaptable Kiddie Bottle holds 350ml, so it holds a decent amount of water for a thirsty child yet it is not too big and heavy for tiny toddler hands. Speaking of little hands, they will have no trouble handling this design thanks to the double handles. The handles are available in the colours green, pink and blue and can be removed for thorough cleaning. The bottles are even dishwasher and steriliser safe (top rack) saving you cleaning and scrubbing.
