Review: Julbo Sunglasses
I was thrilled recently to receive samples of children’s sunglasses from Julbo. They are the only company that makes sunglasses for all ages — from infant to adult.
Lydia is wearing a pair of pink Julbo Bubble sunglasses made for 3 – 5 yo. They are new for 2010 and they are adorable! The plastic frames are made from a durable plastic that is soft to the touch and fits her head snugly, but not uncomfortably. The frames are bendable so I don’t have to worry about her easily snapping them. She can run around like the crazy child she is and they won’t fall off! They are lightweight and I think she forgets she’s even wearing them after a few minutes. The hinges are bendable as well, which I think adds to the comfort level.
She loves the color and I love the fact they wrap around her head to provide full protection of her eyes. I also like the fact that they are dark. They block 88% of visible light and 100% of harmful UVA, B and C rays.
I also had the chance to review their infant style — Julbo Looping Sunglasses. These have no hinges, a very soft elastic band to hold it on an infant or small toddler’s head AND their frames are symmetrical so there is no wrong way to put them on! I wish I had known about them years ago when I struggled to find appropriate sunglasses for my kids.
These glasses are even darker – blocking 95% visible light and also protecting from all the harmful UV rays.
I highly recommend this brand because they provide a high quality product at an affordable price. We have gone through a couple pairs of cheap sunglasses, and these are far superior to those we picked up for less than $8.
If you’re looking for a baby shower gift, birthday gift, or for your own kids, I think these would make an excellent gift! I plan to get a pair of Julbo Next Sunglasses for Nate, and wish they came in prescription options for Colin!
Disclosure: I received 2 pair of Julbo sunglasses to facilitate my honest and complete review. Thanks to Julbo for sending them to me!
