All Real Kids Shades are third-party tested to provide 100% UVA/UVB protection as measured by the strictest American, European, and Australian governing bodies. They’re CPSIA compliant, CE certified, and FDA approved are lead-free with no bisphenol A or phthalates. Oh, and they’re really cute.

Check out the reasons it’s so important to protect your eyes.


Sunglasses in the fall, you say? Aren’t shades a “summertime accessory”? Well, no.

We need to protect our eyes year round from harmful UV rays, not just in the summer. It’s a chilly fall afternoon here in Portland but it is also crisp and sunny – and those sun rays can wreak havoc on my little ones’ eyes. But the normal sunglasses I have purchased them have all broken or just aren’t too helpful in keeping their eyes protected.

That’s where Real Kids Shades comes in! They have a full line of sunglasses for kids 0-12 that are equal parts durable and adorable. I was lucky enough to receive two pair for the twins:

Xtreme Elements $19.99

Flex Duo $14.99

As I had mentioned before, they are durable. Like KID-PROOF durable! My kids can be pretty hard on their things (what child isn’t?) and I am so happy that these shades have lasted. The Flex Duo are not brittle plastic like you’d find in a drug store. They are flexible and soft, yet rigid enough to keep their shape. The Xtreme Elements are GREAT too – they have a wrap-around neoprene strap as opposed to the standard frame so they stay on. Plus they have a foam inner ring to keep their peripherals protected too. And my kids LOVE them!

How COOL do they look? As my son would say “Fonzie-cool” lol!

For the price of 2 (broken, disposable) kid’s sunglasses you can get one pair of durable, cute, and FUN Real Kids Shades. Shades that will last more than a week (actually they can last years)! Find them at
