Adventure Kidz BanZ are protective sunglasses for your growing child. Constructed with polycarbonate frames and lenses for added durability, and made with an embedded silicone nose and brow piece for added comfort. Originally designed in Australia for one of the world’s toughest UV environments. Provide 100% UVAB protection. Endorsed by the Melanoma International Foundation.
Pop them out of the package and Adventure Kidz BanZ are ready to go! Simply detach the Velcro, wrap around the back of your child’s head and reattach the Velcro. Couldn’t be easier than that! And at this age – many of the children were able to put the Kidz BanZ on and take them off all by themselves! Bonus! But our review team felt the key to the ease of use category was definitely the added silicone nose and brow piece. The silicone piece is soft and comfortable – making the Kidz BanZ so much more comfortable that you won’t be fighting with your children to keep them on.
As we mentioned in the summary, Adventure Kidz BanZ’s frames and lenses are made out of polycarbonate. Our review team was happy to see this translate into super durability. When the Kidz BanZ were pulled off, thrown and dropped, there was little wear or scratching. For children this age virtually anything you hand them needs to be durable or it won’t last – and these are!
Similar to when we reviewed the Baby BanZ, our review team had a lot of the same things to say as far as visual appeal goes: “Awww….really?!!” “Super cute!” “Adorable!” “Gorgeous!” “Too much!” Need we say more?! There are plenty of styles to choose from – check out their website to see for yourself.
Yes they are stylish. And yes they are cute. But the true design of Adventure Kidz BanZ is for protection. By providing 100% UVAB protection, your little ones eyes will be as protected as possible. And we can’t ask for more functionality out of a pair of baby sunglasses than that!
Well…our review team did find something they weren’t totally thrilled with – and as usual – it was pricing. In a blind survey our review team priced Adventure Kidz BanZ right around $10. With an actual retail price of $17 – these sunglasses were definitely a bit more than our team would have liked. However, if you are in the market for eye protection for your little one, our team was sure to point out there was no price they wouldn’t pay!
Adorable styles and solid protection. Adventure Kidz BanZ may be, or may not be, the first sunglasses for children – but they certainly are the first to combine this level of cuteness with this level of protection. Now that is original!
Overall our review team really fell in love with the adorable Adventure Kidz BanZ. And just like Adventure Baby BanZ, once they found out they actually protect your child’s eyes, and not just look cute, they really were pleased. Yes, the pricing is a bit more than they would have expected, but remember, these sunglasses offer durability and protection – and they are sure to put a smile on your face! All keeping your child’s eyes as protected as possible. Five stars it is!
