Sunscreen? Sun Hat? Baby Banz Sunglasses? Check, Check, and Check!

Sunscreen? Sun hat? Baby Banz sunglasses? Check, check, and check! In one of the world’s strongest UV environments, Californian parents need to depend on sunscreen products to protect their baby; after all, they can’t protect themselves. I recently saw Baby Banz sunglasses and they were too cute and useful to pass up. With a rainbow of bright colors, durability, functionality, cost efficiency, and protection from direct and reflected sunlight, I knew they’d be a cute, comfortable accessory.

Adventure Banz improved on the Original Baby Banz by adding an embedded silicone nose and brow piece for added comfort! Clinically tested by one of the world’s leading authorities on sunglasses, Baby Banz have passed the most stringent standards on sunglasses in the world.

The neoprene elastic strap matches the glasses and the widening at the back of the head will help keep the glasses in place. The side adjustable Velcro allows for years of wear as my baby grows and the Velcro strap loops through the frame and folds back upon itself, which is a great design for getting the perfect fit on the baby’s head. This type of strap also makes it difficult for the baby to undo the Velcro and pull the glasses off, which I’ve found to be a critical flaw in other glasses that I considered.

The category 3 lenses offer high sunglare reduction and 100% UV protection. They can even be used with prescription or polarized lenses.

They offer a sporty, sleek design and since they are made of shatterproof materials, I don’t need to worry about inevitably dropping them.

One of the things that impressed me the most about Baby BanZ is the warranty.  Each pair of sunglasses is backed by a 6 month warranty for any defect in the materials or workmanship.

With a retail price of $17 and up to two years of use, the Baby Banz are a worthwhile purchase. They are definitely worth the money considering the warranty and shatterproof materials.

Baby BanZ have officially become the sunglasses of choice for my daughter.

  1. Those Baby banz are a great idea. Here in Australia we have the slip,slop,slap campaign for our very hot climate…slip on shirt, slop on the sunscreen and slap on a hat! I’m no sun baby…five minutes in the sun and I’m a red lobster!


  2. We got a pair of baby banz for my son but he absolutely hated wearing them, although another friends son loved his, I’d certainly recomend giving them a shot, we went for the retro aviator design in white.


  3. We’ve also been encouraging our son (15 months) to wear babybanz for the past 4 months of our trip, but he often pulls them off. If he notices a direct benefit such as on a tuk tuk where a lot of dust is flying off the road into his face then they stay on longer, if not he manages 10 minutes at the most. They look so cute too, it’s a shame.


  4. First of all, thank you for liking my blog…means a lot! Secondly, you are awesome!!! and last but not least, I had researched the baby sunglasses before my 3rd daughter was born and was going to purchase but for whatever reason didn’t. Because of you and your insightful post about this, I will absolutely purchase these for her! What a great Christmas gift! Thanks for your research! AND congratulations to you and your husband!


  5. sadly we live somewhere that meant I didn’t need to worry about baby sunglasses, but they do look very cute 8o) Thanks for dropping by and liking my blog!


  6. Hi Lesley, Thanks for liking my blog. I’m finally catching up on life and checked you out this morning. What an adventurer you are! My frig is covered with the magnets of all the states we have travelled through with our children (four of them, children not states). Parenting is an adventure in itself, but how great to expose your kiddos to the amazing world they live in. Thanks, too, for the heads up on the baby banz. I live in Florida, so I’ll be checking them out for my upcoming grandbaby #6.


  7. I worked in ophthalmology for years. I completely agree with having children/babies wear sunglasses–and yes, the struggle is getting them to keep them on. Maybe the earlier you start with her, the more “natural” it will feel. Plus, as she gets older, you can make a big deal about everyone having their sunglasses on before you hit the road. Maybe if she sees “mommy wears them, daddy wears them”, then she will want to too. It is important to wear them even on cloudy days. ~~Bliss


    • My husband and I don’t leave the house without our glasses so hopefully she’ll she them as essential from a very early age.

      Thanks for reading and taking the time to comment; it’s appreciated.

      Happy Holidays,



  8. Oh my gosh, Lesley, thanks for clicking on my blog. I came to check yours out and I am totally amazed and jealous. Your life sounds amazing.

    Also, it’s about time that people realize children need really good sunglasses also.


  9. Thanks so much for liking my post today. BTW I loved Baby Banz when my kids were little – must have been a little awhile ago because they sold for a bit less . . . liked them so much I sold them in the baby gear store I had at the time. I hope your daughter is as fearless as you are – together you will have amazing adventures.
