For the Boys!! Kidz Banz Review & Giveaway ~ CLOSED

     Here in Arizona it is sunny!  That is not a surprise to anyone I am sure.  Jayden is a little sensitive to the sun or at least his eyes are.  He gets very squinty and has watery eyes when the sun is bright and shining in his face.  That is why I think it is important for him to have some good sunglasses.  But sunglasses don't always stay on his face, either because of size or of him messing with them.  I was excited to try out some Kidz Banz

Kidz Banz are made by Baby Banz.  Baby Banz were developed in Australia when a father was searching for a pair of sunglasses for his infant son.  He couldn't find the perfect pair so he developed them himself.  Baby Banz are best known for their unique wrap-around, banded design and 100% UV protective lenses.  Baby Banz has grown to include an array of sun protecting items for babies and children, including hats and swim suits. 

I was sent a pair of Adventure Kidz Banz in Midnight Black.  The Adventure Banz feature an embedded silicone nose and brow piece for added comfort.  The glasses are held on Jayden's face with a strap that Velcros around his head.  We have used the Kidz Banz lots.  We used them at the Walk With Me event, the zoo, the park, the beach, and everyday use.  I really like that the Kidz banz stay in place.  I also like that they close around his eyes to not let the light in on the sides, top, or bottom.  And of course my favorite feature is the 100% UV protective lenses. 

Jayden wore these sunglasses many times.  Most all the time he left them on and liked that they helped with the sunlight.  I also like with the strap if Jayden pulled them down they didn't get dropped or lost since they were around his neck.  There were a couple times that when he took them off he had little red marks on his nose, but I think maybe they were a little tight.  Although they are easy for me to use and put on him, they are not easy for him to do it himself. 

Baby Banz makes sunglasses for children ages 0-5.  This is great they even have them for little babies.  The Baby Banz and the Kidz bands come in a variety of colors.  There are a few different styles Adventure, Ultimate, and Retro.  They also make Jbanz for 4-10 year olds.  They have recently added swim goggles that would be great for summer swimming.  And they have ski banz for those that live in the snow areas.

Baby sunglasses are so important and baby/kidz banz are the perfect solution for the bright summer sun in baby's eyes.  We will definitely continue to use ours daily.  Would you like a pair for your little one?
