Shatterproof and Unbreakable

These sunnies are technically sun-'glasses' but think less glass, more shatterproof polycarbonate which will resist impact and breakage. The bendy frames are both unbreakable, no matter how rough your kid is, and so comfortable that you barely notice you're wearing them. Both the glasses and your children can be relied on to remain undamaged!

Total UV Protection 

Kids are often described as 'wide-eyed' and impressionable, but there's a sense in which that's literally true. Their larger pupils are particularly susceptible to the absorption of  UV radiation, so it's essential to ensure they're protected if they spend long periods of time in the sun. Luckily these Real Shades sunglasses will shield your kids from 100% of harmful UVA/UVB rays, but don't forget to dollop way too much sun cream onto their noses, cheeks and forehead!

Who Are Real Shades?

Real Shades were founded in 2002, and have been dedicated to producing top quality sunglasses from the best materials ever since. They produce sunnies for both adults and children, with style that any adult would appreciate and safety precautions that parents adore.
