With summer on its way and the kids outside in full force, the dreaded battle of wearing sun protection arises yet again. I don’t know about yours, but my three-and-a-half year old refuses to wear a hat. It’s a constant battle that escalates into a full on tug-of-war every time we venture outside. I have tried every style of head covering, every color and every option, only to have them lost, left and destroyed at every turn.
Sunscreen is no easier task. In fact, wrestling a monkey covered in cooking oil would be easier than administering the smallest dollop on my son’s skin. He seems to love the sun, and thankfully he was born with the kind of skin that can tolerate it, but for my own peace of mind, I am left finding alternate and unique ways to keep him protected and safe outdoors.
This was one of the reasons why I was inspired to create a children’s clothing company. At AGOO APPAREL we make stylish, active clothes for kids on the move, using 100% UV protected material. Our garments are all about fashion and function combined. Additionally, they have wick-away fibres that keep sweat away from the skin, eliminating any chills or possible overheating, stain resistance and anti bacterial properties.
One of our best sellers includes the long sleeve raglan, perfect for long days in the sun, and ideal for looking cool and feeling hip. The versatile playful pant can go anywhere from gymnastics, to the park, to the movies.
All of our styles perform great if you are going to the beach, the playground, or even to Grandma’s house. Check us out Agoo4u.com and you won’t be disappointed!
For cool head gear, nothing is cooler than COOLIBAR’s bucket hat. Completely crushable construction makes it great for travel or storage. The lightweight, ultra-soft lite SUNTECT™ fabric comes in sensible solids and playful plaids. Great for older kids who want to look trendy while fighting off the rays.
For the younger ones, love the colors in Sun Smarties Girls Reversible Sun Hat, amazingly priced at just $7.95. It truly is the ONLY reversible, adjustable girl’s sun hat! Mix it, flip it, match it… then expand the fit as she grows with an adjustable hatband with unique, pull-through straps. UPF 50+, of course. I have one for my eight month old and never leave home without it.
Our kids spend a lot of time in their strollers, so visit SunfriendlyProducts.com for a vast selection of UV-protected sun covers, perfect for strollers, joggers and prams.
They pretty much have it all in one place so you are sure to find exactly what you need, even custom made for hard-to-fit buggies.
To keep track of just how long your little ones have been in the sun, use Sun Signals UV Sensors. They measure UVB rays, changing from yellow to deep orange when sun exposure approaches dangerous levels. Just stick on clothing or skin after applying sunscreen, and watch for the color to change. How easy is that!?
