We’ve often wondered if our kids would benefit from good quality sunglasses in our hot South African sun. But we’ve also been concerned that low quality lenses could impact their vision. Wondering if your child needs sunglasses? It’s time to put your questions to the experts…
Betsie’s passion for child eye care started when her twins, from a very young age, had to wear prescription glasses. She then realized that it is not only important to protect their little eyes from the harsh sun but also her very active boy’s eyes who spent most of his days outdoors. She got involved with the Babiators brand and was so blown away that she eventually became the sole importer of this brand in the country.
Babiators launched in 2011 with longtime friends Carolyn and Molly working from their kitchen tables. Today, the Babiators “Crew” is growing fast and quickly becoming a leading children’s retail brand. Forbes Magazine recently named Babiators one of America’s 100 Most Promising Companies of 2014! From their world headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, their safe, stylish and awesome products fly off to more than 30 countries, giving kids around the world the freedom and protection to tackle whatever adventures come their way.
Babiators is on a mission to protect kids’ eyes while they’re out exploring this awesome world. Babiators kids have a sense of adventure and optimism for the future – they know they can go anywhere, conquer anything, and be total rockstars on the journey.
Babiators are made of a soft and flexible rubber material which makes them super comfortable and virtually indestructible. All Babiators are UV400 lenses offering 100% protection against UVA and UVB rays. Polarized sunglasses have an additional coating that reduces sun glare. While polarized lenses may be a bit more expensive than conventional sunglasses, some consumers prefer polarized sunglasses because they selectively block out glare, rather than making the whole field of vision dimmer. Polarized lenses are recommended for children under the age of 18 because the lenses in children’s eyes are clearer (with less pigmentation) than those in an adult’s lens, which allows for greater levels of damaging UV light to enter the eye.
Babiators believe that outfitting your child with Safe, Durable, and Awesome products is too important to let the loss of your Babiators product get in the way of your adventures! If your little aviator’s Babiators products are lost or broken within one year of purchase, and you have completed the registration process within 30 days of purchase, they will send you one FREE product replacement – all you pay is shipping.
Did you know that 50% of lifetime UV ray exposure may occur by the age of 18? It’s imperative that we protect our children’s eyes now! Visit www.babiatorssa.co.za to order your pair, follow us on Facebook or pop us an email
