My six year old son came to me recently wanting a pair of sunglasses. I figured that we would just go to Walmart or Target and get a cheap pair for him there. After trying on both children's sunglasses AND adult sunglasses, I knew I was going to have to look elsewhere. The problem with my six year old is that he is very tall and his head is quite big for his age, although it is proportionate to his body. The children's sunglasses were all too small and didn't fit right. The adult sunglasses were all too big and didn't fit right.
I began doing some research on the internet and stumbled upon this pair of Julbo Peekaboo sunglasses. At first I was very turned off by them due to their price because they are more money than I would like to pay for a pair of sunglasses that my son will most likely break or lose.
After extensive research, I finally broke down and ordered a pair. They are only available in three colors: black, silver, and red. My son wanted a blue pair, but settled for the silver pair.
When these arrived at my home, I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of these sunglasses. These sunglasses are designed to fit a 6-9 year old child's face and head. My son's head is probably more like a nine year old's head, so these fit him perfectly!
The areas on the sunglasses that are near the child's temples, are moldable so you can custom fit them to your child's head. The lenses offer 100% UV protection and 90% VLR protection. These sunglasses are also very durable. My son sat on them and they didn't even crack. I realize that the price of these are a little steep, but they are well worth it!
