“You need to find my sunglasses and bring them to school for me,” she said holding back tears.
I have lost count how many times as we are walking out the door for the school bus, that one or both of my girls are upset over fearing or fretting something they can’t find that they want to bring with them for the day.
Never mind the homework being done in their folders or the snacks all packed to their liking or even the money that I put on their school lunch account as they prefer to buy then bring in with them.
All of those things that are indeed necessary and needed don’t matter, because it is their personal belongings that count so much more in those moments.
On a side note, I am thankful for a bus driver who will wait as they are racing down our short block to the corner to catch the bus, as well as the fact that share goes around for other kids behind us and returns to our corner if god forbid the unspeakable happens and my girls actually miss the bus (we have never, but still nice to know).
But at this point of the year, it is warmer and definitely more summer-like. So, the one personal item my girl was so very upset over was her sunglasses, because she likes having them for recess and the bus ride to and from school home.
Sunglasses are truly something I have instilled in the girls to use, as I have taught them how important their eyes and vision are.
So, I know I should be happy that this was a concern of my daughter that morning, but not going to lie I was more frustrated by the fact that we couldn’t get out the door on time, because of her sudden outburst and desire to find her sunglasses, which she clearly had misplaced at the very worst and last moment possible.
It also should be noted that these sunglasses that both my girls have are absolutely the perfect pair of sunglasses to explore all the world around them and are from Speckaboo.
So in hindsight, I could see why she was indeed so upset to have misplaced her eyewear still though and find out more why I felt this way…
What is Speckaboo?
Speckaboo is a family-owned company that has been producing top-of-the-line fashion and sports eyewear for decades. In recent years, Speckaboo realized how important it is to create top-class eyewear for not only grownups, but for the littlest members or children. Thus, their eyewear is made specially for little ones ranging from babies, toddlers and even young kids, too.
What makes Speckaboo eyewear special?
Speckaboo glasses are fashionable, but are durable and flexible enough to move about with children as they rumble and tumble, because they are made from DuPont plastics. So, because of their flexframes, they can take a beating with most types of kid play.
Plus, Speckaboo are not only sunglasses to protect their littlest of eyes for outdoor play, but for indoor as well. See Speckaboo has learned that kids also love to play indoors with their technology gadgets. So their eyewear glasses can indeed also be worn indoors, as they have Easy Eye lenses, which are special lenses that actually block the harsh blue light coming from tablets and mobile phones, too.
So, they help keep your little one learning, but also keep them safe from the effects of blue light, such as:
- BLURRY VISION
Therefore, Speckaboo was created by parents, but are tested and loved by children alike!
How can you contact Speckaboo eyewear?
They even have a money back guarantee against defects in their materials or craftsman ship for up to thirty days after your purchase. For more information, you can contact Speckaboo at 1 (888) 902-6886, email them at email@example.com, or on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
Do your little ones like to wear sunglasses outdoors?
Do they like to play with mobile devices?

Seana Turner says
My oldest girl always loved sunglasses as well. We didn’t have ones quite as cute as these, but they were still adorable. I agree that lots of kids like having them – the sun is bright after all!
Aw, thanks Seana and so true about that sun, too!! 🙂

WAIT these are good for tablet time too? I need some for our trip to Alaska next week!
They are totally good for tablet playing and taking them with us to Disney next weekend on the plane, too here!! 😉
William Holland says
An odd fact: when I was a kid, no one wore sunglasses for every day play. When my family went on vacation we would wear sunglasses at the motel poop, but never just hanging out…..times have changed, my friend.
Anyway, Happy Wednesday. I’ll be working outside all day but wanted to begin the day by saying hello.
Glad you did stop by and wishing you a very warm hello and Happy Wednesday now, too!! 🙂
Sarah Honey says
Cute! My child needs some that stay on his face.
Confessions of A Mommyaholic says
Hope you can try these for your child, too then now!! 😉
I love these! I need to get a pair for all of my kids. The summer sun here is brutal and protecting their eyes is so important, especially since they are blue and green eyed. Thank you for sharing this information!
Glad to share this and agree that protecting the eyes, especially during the summer months is so very important.
Amanda || Growing Up Madison says
We wear a lot of sunglasses, especially here in the summer. We’re at a very high altitude and the sun is extremely strong here and I try to protect our eyes as much as I can. Madison wears a wrap around style as she still hasn’t perfected the use of just “putting them on”. I’ll have to check out Speckaboo as I’ve never heard of them before.
Love the strap around styles, too and have to see if I can get straps now for their Speckaboo glasses, too.
Sheila qualls says
They are cute. Do they make them for big girls, too?
I wish, Sheila!!! 😉
catherine gacad says
these are so cute! surprisingly franco loves wearing his sunglasses. whenever he puts them on, we keep gushing at him, so no surprise he keeps them on!
Aw, that is too cute and both my girls too have always been a fan of sunglasses 😉
I’m so in! I lost my sunglasses and then found them broken. My kids love to wear them, and they’re so helpful on long car drives.
Nothing worse than broken sunglasses and sadly have had my share here in the past, too!!
Great to get kids aware of protecting their eyes at any early age. We know about eye problems in our family! This is a great idea and hope parents pay heed. And just in time for Disney! xxoo
So true and definitely know about eye problems in our family!! xoxo
They look so cute!
Aw, thanks Dara!! 🙂
Kristi Campbell says
My son has these already!! The bomb.
Awesome and love that Tucker has a pair, too!!! 😉
Very cute eyewhere! Eve enjoys wearing sunglasses — and always looks so serous when she has them on.
Aw, I love the faces my girls get, too when they wear sunglasses 🙂
Jennifer | The Deliberate Mom says
I can’t even go outside on a cloudy day without sunglasses. My eyes are so sensitive. These look like awesome sunglasses and seem very competitively priced compared to the glamour glasses for sale in most stores – but these are far better quality.
I need to get some for my youngest (she broke hers recently). I’m still trying to find a solution for my oldest daughter too (she wears glasses). I may have to get her transition lenses – yikes – expensive.
Thanks for sharing.
I am the same and still use sunglasses on cloudy days as my eyes are truly that sensitive, too. Happy to share and thanks again for tweeting, too!! xoxo 🙂
Katherines Corner says
your junior supermodels look so cute in these xo P.S. both of grandsons wear glasses.
Thanks Katie and sounds like your grandsons and my girls would get along perfectly!! 🙂
Hi Janine, I don’t leave the house without sunglasses anytime of the year and wish my two were the same, but unfortunately they’re not, although my daughter will wear sunglasses in the summer. I keep telling them we only have one pair of eyes, so look after them!
These Speckaboo glasses seem ideal for little ones who like to get outside and active, and the fact they also block blue-light from devices is a great added bonus.
Debbie, I am with you on never leaving the house without my sunglasses and truly agree how important sunglasses are.
I never knew that pinkeye could be a side effect of tablets and such! Those glasses are really cute, and your daughters are adorable in them!
Aw, thanks Leslie and just seeing this now as we just got back in from Disney this past weekend 😉
