What to look for when buying sunglasses for kids?

Whether they’re heading for a beach day or enjoying their favourite outdoor activities, it’s important to choose sunglasses that provide 99-100 percent of UVA protection to keep your young one’s eyes shielded from harmful rays - it’s also key that they’re durable and cover a good portion of the eyes.

That’s why you can’t go wrong with Matalan’s fantastic range. Not only do they provide 100% UV protection for maximum peace of mind, they also come in a wonderful selection of designs – from fun character prints to classic aviators, your adventurous youngster will be spoil for choice!

Are sunglasses safe for toddlers?

Ideally, children should wear sunglasses when they reach 6 months of age. No matter the environment or weather conditions, sunglasses are key for encouraging good eye health from an early age – not only that, but they’ll also make your little one look super cute, too!

Whether your little one is a Paw Patrol fanatic or mad about unicorns, Matalan’s charming collection of sunglasses will have them covered. Featuring age ranges from 3 years to 10 years to ensure younger kids don’t miss out, they’re sure to enjoy their outdoor summer activities in one of our durable and playful pairs.

How do you get sunglasses to stay on a toddler?

We all know what it’s like with toddlers – it can be a struggle to keep their sunglasses on their head. That’s where glasses straps come in. Featuring elastic for stretchy comfort, glasses straps are super practical because they’re adjustable, ensuring that the fit isn’t too tight on your child’s head.

Perfect for calming fidgety children, a glasses strap is the way forward. So, don’t be put off buying sunglasses for the littlest members of your family – Matalan’s comfortable and adorable collection of sunglasses include tinted lenses and delightful designs to ensure that efficiency and style are combined.

What age do kids need sunglasses?

There’s never any harm applying sun cream or lotions to delicate skin, but these products can irritate the eye and cause discomfort. It’s no wonder, then, that children aged 10 or below should wear sunglasses in strong sunshine – they really are the best accessories for keeping their eyes protected.

Great for pairing with cute vest tops, shorts and sandals on their summer holidays, sunglasses not only shield their eyes from damaging rays, they also add some extra style points to their warm-weather outfits, too! In a wonderful assortment of colours, including classic black and charming blue, there's so much choice here.

Why are sunglasses important for children?
