About Me Parent of Two or More Children
Comments about One Step Ahead Sun Smarties Boy's Reversible, Adjustable Uv Sun Hat Aloha Camo Sm:
I love that it comes in 4 sizes and that there is a size chart. It helps guarantee that you will get a good fit from the start (plus it can be adjusted a little for a more custom fit). We get tons of compliments and my son won't go outside without wearing it. Super cute and good brim size for shade without blocking visibility.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great for summer
from Manalapan, NJ
About Me First Time Parent
I was excited to find this hat. Great coverage for my son's head and face, plus it was reversible so it is versatile. It's silly, but the tag is even made to be removed so its truly reversible! I love that they thought of that because that normally drives me crazy! I bought it big in anticipation of summer, so my 8 month old can pull it off, but the Velcro really holds together strongly and it seems like it will stay tight when it needs to. Overall, very happy so far!

Great Fit for ages 5-7 Boys
By Lawyer Mom on the Run
from Austin, TX
I was so relieved that this fun, floppy Aloha Shark style hat fits both of my growing boys. It's really hard to find a good UV-protective sun hat for boys once their older than 5 - go figure. My boys have very fair skin and are 6.5 and almost 5 years old with good sized head circumferences (not little peanut heads). This hat fits both of them great! With a handy velcro chin strap for windy days that can be tucked up into the hat when not wanted/needed.
from Hoquiam, wa
Very cute hat. Easy to reverse. Got the 18-24 month size for my 13 month old and the little size adjuster makes it fit perfect and is easy to adjust.

Awesome Hat! Great buy! I ordered the size small for our 14 month old and it worked perfect! It is adjustable so it stays on there head. He will even be able to wear it next year since it is adjustable.

Love it, it is so light and cute. My boys love it!
cute and functional
from FPO, AP
My kids love the matching accessories of this line. I love that they love the products and that this hat is functional in more ways than one: covers their necks, is reversible, etc.
Don't spend your money on it.

We only used the hat three times and the pull cord to tighten it broke already. Very disappoiting.

our go to hat
This is our go to hat whenever we take our son outside. Its very lightweight and the brim can be worn many different ways. It looks really cute. I already bought the next size up because we love it.
from new york, ny
great hat....especially for the sale price i paid!
from Montreal, Canada
Not only is this hat adorable, it's perfect for the pool and beach. The adjustable strap allows it to fit well and hopefully last multiple summers. The material doesn't absorb water so it's great for swimming. The brim is nice and wide so it covers his face and neck much better than a traditional bucket hat. Love this hat!
Great sun hats

About Me Grandparent
The hats fit my grandsons nicely, I like the colors and the fact that they are reversible.
LOVE THIS HAT!
from Ft Lauderdale, FL
This was the second Sun Smarties Hat I've purchased for my son & it has been just as amazing! The first hat lasted through two years of South Florida sun, surf, and water play. Great construction, fantastic neck and face protection from the sun. Nice features include the soft hook & loop chin straps, and the adjustable cinch tab (to make the hat tighter/more loose). I also like that the patterns & colors aren't too infantile, so my 3 year old is willing to wear it. If you measure your child's head, and then review the sizing chart, you'll get the correct hat size.
Cover up the way the surfers do! Little dudes don't mind extra sun protection when it's this sporty, comfortable, and fun. And because our boy's rash guard covers shoulders, tummy, and back, it's a terrific sun solution for kids with sensitive skin. UPF 50+. Boy's UV swim shirt is non-chaffing and quick-drying. Machine wash. Imported. Designed by OneStepAhead! For a great fit the first time, check our Size Chart before ordering.

We've used and washed this swim top many, many times since I bought it, and it still looks great.
By Momma Bear
from Charleston, WV
I only had one complaint and that was the size. My son is 2 1/2 & wears 2T in almost everything. When I got the 2T shorts, they fit perfect, but this shirt fit bigger & hung a little more than I wanted. He still wore it & it did it's purpse... kept him from getting burnt! I just wish I had gotten a smaller size. I would get another one though1
from Frederick, MD
Love the design of the shirt. It has room to move in and the back is slightly longer. The color is very cute. We bought the whole set, the shirt, shorts, and hat. They have vibrant color, cute details, and feel like better quality. More expensive and seems to be worth the extra money.
from Newton, NJ
I love that I dont need to put sunscreen all over my allergy boy, he loves the feel and the designs.
By Speedy Mom
from New York
Swim shirt is well made and the size is true to size. I like that it is not tight and too clingy on my 2-year old.
You asked, we delivered! Our boy's long-sleeved rash guard provides the ultimate in kids' sun protection. Best of all, little surfers like wearing it, because it's sporty, stretchy, and fun. Boy's swim shirt is UPF 50+, the highest sun protection available. A terrific sun solution for kids with sensitive skin; covers shoulders, tummy, back, and arms. Non-chaffing and quick-drying.

Comments about One Step Ahead Sun Smarties Boy's Long Sleeve Swim Shirt Blue 12 Mos.:
At first glance, the neck appears to be rather small. We were worried about getting it over the babies head. But, to our relief, the fabric stretches easily and we had no problem putting it on. The garment is well made and the babies appeared to be comfortable wearing them.
from Chesapeake, VA
Don't have to worry about lathering sunscreen all over his chest, back and arms b/c they are covered. Love it! Thank you!
Excellent....We love this....
from Annapolis, MD
We bought one of these last year for our son and loved it so much, we bought another for this coming season! I like the idea of not having to apply so much sunscreen on my son and this piece really helps! It protects my son's arms and torso. He doesn't mind wearing it in the water, so it must be comfortable! The piece is well made and will hold up to multiple washings. A good purchase....
Great sun protection!

Fabric is good quality, construction is very durable.
By Beth O.
from North Carolina
I loved this swim shirt! I ordered a 12 month size for my 8 month old and he is in the 25% of weight and height. I wanted it a little loose especially since he has a large head (75%). :) The shirt has longer sleeves and the back is longer which was great since he is crawling. I also loved that the neck hole stretched enough when I put it over his head. So, I would definitely suggest this shirt!
My son's favorite shirt to wear.
from Doylestown, Pa
We used this shirt all the time on sunny days. It was especially useful at the beach.
I ordered a size larger since summer is almost over, and looking forward to my son using this sun shirt next summer. It is light weight, and seems to be very well made. I wish it came in white or a lighter color, dark blue might be hot .... but so far that's my only complaint, and not a big deal.
BEST RASH GUARD!!
from Ft Lauderdale, Florida
My son wears this rash guard every day & it's held up so well (pool & beach)! The fabric is not flimsy and the construction is great! The neck opening is large enough to fit his head through without difficulty & yet it retracts to offer sun protection on his neck. The longer back is awesome, offering constant protection to his lower back as he bends and squats during play. My son is 3.5 years, 37 lbs and fit into the 4T with room & length to spare. I also bought a 5T for next year. I also like that it is free from graphics, so he can wear it with any swim trunks.
from Midland, MI
I bought this for my 10 month old son. He wears it for swimming in our pool or at the beach - it is great because it protects him from the sun and we don't have to worry about reapplying sunscreen all the time. The 18 month size is a little bit big right now but he'll have room to grow into it.
I would definitely recommend this item
from Lancaster, PA
As a grandparent, I don't have to worry if I'm not putting enough sunscreen on my grandson or covering every area. I know he's safe & covered with this shirt on, when I take him in our pool.
By Summer lovin mommy
Due to an accident we need to make sure my son's back, arms and palms are protected from the sun. This shirt is so much better than others we looked at. The sleeves are longer as is the back of the shirt. When he is playing on the beach I don't worry that the shirt will ride up and expose his back. The shirt dries quickly and is comfortable, he leaves it on even on days the temps exceed 90 degrees! Long sleeve swim shirts aren't always easy to find but this one exceeded my expectations and is worth every penny!

About Me Parent of Multiples (Twins etc)
I have purchased other long sleeve shirts from babies r us and they have not held up nearly as well as these shirts have by the end of the summer. Great sun protection and never had a problem with burning.
Perfect sun/swimming shirt. So much easier than sunscreen - doesn't wear off! My boys (2 and 4) don't mind it at all. I like that it is a little longer in the back for coverage whle playing out of the water.
from Newton NJ
having a child with multiple allergies, these shirts are great! No sunscreen needed on torso!
Great swim shirt - looks great with the swim shorts and my grandson (and daughter-in-law) LOVE it!
Our boy's UV tee shirt is designed to go the distance! It's UPF 50+—the highest sun protection available—and wears exceptionally well, to last all summer and beyond. Made of soft, 100% cotton jersey that keeps its shape, is stain-resistant, and keeps on looking great. UV shirts are roomy and pre-shrunk, with fun details that little dudes love. Machine wash.

Cute & Great Fit - Wish Bigger Sizes Too
Comments about One Step Ahead Sun Smarties Boy's Uv T-shirt Green Crab 12 Mos.:
We got the green crab shirt for my almost-five-year-old. It fits great. He and I love it. It's an especially huge relief to know it has extra UV protection and is cute, not adorned with skulls or any other ugly stuff like many clothes for boys ages 5 and up (for some reason cute is no longer on the shelf for those ages even though the kids still prefer cute over thug-like). Wish Leaps & Bounds had sizes higher than 5T - - how about up to 10 or 12?
These sporty boy's swim trunks have a secret: there's a hard-working swim diaper inside! Our boy's swimsuits are made of supple, quick-drying peached microfiber that's also UPF 50+. Lined with a reusable swim diaper for waste containment (an affordable, earth-friendly alternative to bulky disposables). Machine wash. Imported. Designed by OneStepAhead! For a great fit the first time, check our Sun Smarties™ Size Chart before ordering.
Climbing? No problem! Wading? Let's go! Our kids' sports sandals help little explorers keep their footing on rough ground and slick surfaces.

Comments about One Step Ahead Kids 2-in-1 Land And Water Sandals & Slides Brown 10 Toddler:
there are many straps so it was a little difficult to get on and off for my toddler
Good for the price
from Philadelphia, PA
These sandals are good for the price but wish they were made of a more flexible (mesh-like) material. This would be better for outdoor/ water-based activities.
Great Summer Sandal
from Knoxville, TN
The only drawback to these sandals was that I had to send them back for bigger sizes for both my daughter (size toddler 9) and my niece (toddler 7), so order a size larger than what you think your child needs. Once we got sandals that fit both girls, they're great! My daughter has Red Skin Syndrome and is VERY sensitive to straps going across her ankles, and these padded straps meet her seal of approval! Very comfy and easy for her to put on and take off. Thanks for a great product One Step Ahead!
The Best Sandals
from Pompton Plains, NJ
I love these sandals. We have bought these sandals for our children every summer as their feet grow and they are the best. They fit comfortably and while other sandals give kids blisters or need to be broken in these do not. They are also very durable. They are great for playing outdoors getting them wet and they even look great with dresses. My kids love them and wear them all the time. They are so durable they could be used for more than a year since they adjust so nicely.

My grandson where the shoes to school and out doors!
Great first sandal!

These are great little first sandals for a toddler! Our little guy loves wearing them so they must be very comfortable because he rarely wants to wear socks, let alone shoes! : )
Adjustable to accomadate a wide foot.
from Osage, IA
My son has a somewhat wide foot, and these are wide enough. He appears comfortable in the sandal. We have not worn them much, so I am not sure how they will wear, but they appear durable enough.

By matts mom
I really like these sandals, and you really can't beat the price. My kids both have very wide feet, and these are very comfortable for them. My ONLY complaint is that the sole is very firm. I know some people prefer that, but I am a firm believer that soles of kids shoes should have some flexibility. That being said, I'm really comfortable letting my kids run around at the park with these sandals, because they are so sturdy. They use these sandals at the pool, then play at the park afterwards. It's a nice all around active sandal.
from Thousand Oaks, CA
These sandals are perfect for use all spring and summer long. My son loves them. I love that they are very adjustable and convertible and washable. This is our second pair.
Perfect for Summer Fun

This is a great shoe, particularly for the price. Nicely constructed, durable and comfortable. The feature that takes them from a Sandal to a Slide is adorable but watch that the child doesn't remove the strap and hide it, like mine did!

Great shoes, great customer service!
from Los Angeles
When we got the shoes, we noticed that there was a mistake and we got two different sizes. When I called customer service about it, they handled the complaint really well and sent us a new pair that arrived the next day. That's what I call great customer service!!!As to the shoes themselves, they seem to be really sturdy, are not too bulky, dry quickly after getting wet and fit well (no blisters or red marks). Due to the multiple straps they can be adjusted individually. Our daughter really likes them!

My 2 yr old can reek havoc on a pair of sunglasses. She can pull on these and they don't break or misshape. They are light weight so she keeps them on. They also are very clear and easy to clean. Her older sister wants some now! Great pair of sunglasses at the right price.
Stand the test of toddlers!
By Mom of Four
Bought these so that our fourth child would have her own shades at the pool and outings. She loves them. For a two year old to want to wear something, they have to be comfortable! Our last pair, from my first child, who is now 14 are still in great condition, just a different size.
By Spacecoast Mommy
from Merritt Island, FL
I love these little sunglasses! I bought them for my almost two-year-old since she likes my expensive prescription sunglasses...and she happily made the swap! They have been stuffed into her beach bag, hidden under the couch, flung around the car and you can't even tell. She can put them on and take them off by herself and they don't poke her like those cheap plastic ones do. When she outgrows these, I'll get the bigger size!
This is a great product

This is a great product for a toddler! My daughter loves her sunglasses! They have held up against her "toddler ways" of pulling them every which way. The only reason I gave it 4 and not 5 stars was because we have only had them about a month and cannot say how they will hold up in the long run.

Sun Smarties Rubber Frame Sunglasses

Merchant response: Please contact our Customer Care Center so we can assist you further. We apologize for your inconvenience.
By Mamma Bear
I got a pair of these in each of the smaller sizes for my son because he has sensory issues and he loves sunglasses, but when he was really young, wouldn't wear the ones with the elastic strap because he couldn't stand the feeling. Being really light weight, he kept these on and LOVED them. He's 3 1/2 now and just outgrowing the middle size, so we're getting him a new pair and his 1 year old sister some in pink. They're durable - the first scratch on the lens happened after having them for nearly two years (and he's not gentle). The frames are really flexible, so little hands don't break them easily. The lenses pop out when they're twisted instead of breaking, and are super easy to pop back in when this happens. Overall, GREAT glasses.
Love these sunglasses
By Adriana from Attuned Wholistic Services
from Edmonton, Alberta Canada
These sunglasses are great. I don't worry about them being broken all the time, or with my little one, I don't worry about him poking his eye out trying to put them on himself. The rubber is great.The only drawback is, if they push they can pop the lenses out.... which I have been able to pop back in.... so is not a deal breaker for me.
My 3 1/2 year old son wore them for two minutes in the car. He popped the lens out and I cannot find it. What a disappointment! I thought they would have lasted a bit longer than that! Who makes toddler glasses that come apart so easily?!?!?!? The shipping cost more than the actual product but I tolerated it because of the reviews. Boy was I wrong. I had to give it one star but I would really give it no stars since it isn't functional.....
Merchant response: Thank you for your feedback. The lenses are designed to pop out when the frames are twisted for safety purposes. They can easily pop them back in. But please contact our Customer Care Center so we assist you with a replacement or exchange.
