Wouldn’t you though?

Hmmm, you’ve reached an older feature - let’s get you up to date! Read our latest Wouldnt you though features here.

Kids sunglasses are hard to buy – the impulse is to buy cheap, because the little buggers will just lose them anyway, but often the glasses are then not protective enough. But looky here, I’ve just discovered Babiators. Loving them!


Near as dammit unbreakable and with a wrap-around ‘Aviator’ shape (so safe on little eyes) but also very cool-looking in bright summer colours,  they’ve been featured in Vogue and it’s not hard to see why.

There are two sizes, 0-3 years and 3-7 years, and prices are, ahem, not cheap at £24.95 up to a buttock-clenching £44.95. However, Babiators promise to replace any products that break or are lost, which is pretty special. So just add up how many pairs of sunglasses your kid stamps on, pulls apart or loses this summer, and they’ll no doubt seem a lot more affordable!
