Stylin' with My First Shades

I'll admit, I become a freak with sunglasses. I just love them, I can't get enough for myself, I collect them and always have many different styles, brands and colors on hand. This has now trickled down to my girls. They LOVE sunglasses and I just love to buy them.

Not only is it great because they have a love for sunglasses just like their mama, but it's great that they can protect their eyes as well from the harmful UV rays that the sun gives off especially during the summer months. I don't have to fight with them at all normally to get them on, the fights tend to happen when I try to get them to take them off.

Our newest sunglass venture has taken us to some shades for the girls called My First Shades. These are just TOO cute. They're stylish (without the bling) and functional for little ones. Ranging in sizes from newborn to 7 years of age, My First Shades are for every kid in the family. They offer 100% UV protection (both UVA & UVB), they're shatter proof and water proof, and with the wrap around style neoprene band, they provide comfort and fit snuggly to a child's face. They are even Rx compatible a vision care professional can fit all styles of My First Shades with prescription lenses right into the polycarbonate frames.

Lyric and Aria are just thrilled with their's, like I said, its a fight to get them off the girls. With each their own individual style, they have their own individual style in sunglasses. Lyric loves her Just For Girls shades and Aria just loves her ABC Daisy shades. And they're a perfect fit for both the girls, not too big on Aria as they're sized for her age group and not too small for Lyric as they're sized for her age group as well.

I highly recommend stopping over to My First Shades and picking out a pair or two, or three or more for your kids, you won't be disappointed and they're great to last through the entire year and all seasons.

I like that the shades are shatterproof and impact resistant and I like that they provide both UVA and UVB protection. The shades would be for a three and a half year old diva who is also my sweet niece! I love the selection of styles they offer, especially the glossy bubblegum pink - so hip!

I like the band. They're ALWAYS losing them!

laura said...

I love that they're UV protected and have a band, so they wont fall/drop off and get lost! UV protection for the eyes is so important, just as much as sunscreen. These would be for us, as we're expecting in Januaray- our bambino's age is 13 weeks. :)

I like the Xtreme shades in Gloss black/silver for my 3 1/2 year old son.

Lilith Silvermane said...

I like the Tangerine and pink roses for the 3-7 age group.

I like how they stay on with the strap, my little one has a set, but she always takes them off and plays with them. I want to be able to put her in the car, put on her shades, put on mine and then we can "match" so she learns eye care early on!

Thanks for the giveaway.

Megan said...

I love all of the different styles and colors. Most glasses with neoprene bands are pretty plain. I'd get them for my daughter Elizabeth (age 2).

kygirl said...

The colors and wrap around head.

Stacy said...

I love that with the strap they would stay on my sons head.
hetz-junk(at)hotmail(dot)com

PS said...

Maybe, just maybe they would leave them on with a strap, and if they happened to get them off they might not snap them instantly!! Perfect!
I'd give them to my son-3, who loves sunglasses, but loves to fix things so first, he has to break them!! eg-all his sunglasses!

Eileen said...

I love that they wrap around the face, maybe they wo't snap as easily as other kids ones! I would love a pair for my 17 month old son.

Kasey said...

Being in a May/Dec marriage I've found myself to be a very young grandma to a 3 yr old little girl. We take her out on the boat a lot with us and so one of the things that I like about the sunglasses is the adjustable neoprene band and they are water as well as rust proof which is definitely a terrific thing.

I think these are great...but what I admire most is their commitment to safety, as their web site states: "Our wrap style design is positioned for a close, comfortable fit that minimizes peripheral light which can also cause eye damage. My First ShadesTM are designed first and foremost for the safety of your child. "

I like the total UV protection and I like that they fit flat against the face to protect their peripheral vision. Not many sunglasses (even for adults) do this.

I like the fact they can be used on babies. They are 100% uva/uvb protected. Impact resistant lenses. If I won I would give them to my new grandson so when he is here in florida visting and anywhere for that matter I know his little eyes will be protected.
I would choose infant - 36 months in glossy black.
Thank you for the chance to win something so nice and needed for my grandson.

frugallm said...

I love that they have the strap on them. My daughter just can't keep her others on. She will be 3 next week so I would get her the Really Cool glasses in Green.

Wow such quality to sunglasses. I liked that you could take them anywhere and it has straps to hold them in place tightly.
Impressive

tia82 said...

What I like best about 'My First Shades' is the wrap style design that minimizes peripheral light which can cause damage to the eyes. I would get these for all the kids in my life. Starting with my 3 children, two of which are 15 months and one is 6 years old.

yellowlabs said...

I love the adjustable band!

Will said...

The elastic band is cool.

Storm said...

I love the Stay Put Power! (and the fact that the band is chew proof LOL) I'd pick the infant size, they'd be for our lil' munkey!
