Sunglasses that protect children's eyes through the year
For most adults there´s no question, we all use sunglasses to protect our eyes from harmful UV-radiation. Protecting children’s eyes is even more important because their vision is not fully developed. Still, many parents skip sunglasses for the smallest kids, Mokki founder Moshe Ohana says.
Ohana is CEO at the Norwegian eyewear brand Mokki, and he believes many parents experience challenges with temple arms that break too easily and sunglasses being torn off small heads because the children experience them as uncomfortable. This way, it quickly becomes expensive to buy new pairs of children’s sunglasses several times per year. Mokki has solved this challenge, with their new and practical product, aiming for the highest quality, without the luxury price-tag.
Award-winning sunglasses for active toddlers
The Click & Change sunglasses system is an award-winning design, voted the best product for baby and children on German Design Awards 2020 and Oslo Prestige Awards 2020, and nominated for German Innovation Awards 2020, Visionplus Awards 2020, Baby Product of the Year Sweden 2020 and Kind + Jungend Innovation 2018. In the box you get two pairs of sunglasses, flexible and attachable arms, a soft elastic headband and a cleaning cloth with a cute figure, so the children can learn to clean their glasses themselves.
The Everyday Urban-frame is for daily use, with UV400 and BlueBlock. This gives the best possible optical clarity and allows for a more accurate and vibrant experience of colors. The other frame, Active Outdoor, is polarized UV400 and suitable for places that exceed normal reflection values, such as water and snow. Both glasses filter out 100 percent of the harmful UV light and are water repellent and scratch-resistant.
The smallest children should not use polarized glasses all day, but to achieve the best possible protection, we offer a package where you can easily switch between glasses for everyday use and for areas with reflective light, such as on the beach or on snow. - CEO Moshe Ohana
Ergonomic, flexible and durable
The Click & Change glasses are extremely lightweight and have ergonomic frames with soft medical rubber nose cushions that help children quickly forget that their glasses are on. Click & Change are also extra durable to withstand play and rough use. The temple arms are virtually non-breakable. The frames can also be supplemented with adapted corrective lenses and with computer glasses for screen protection. Click & Change is developed for children aged 0-5.
Mokki is one of Scandinavia’s leading eyewear brands. The company was established in 1987 and supplies eyewear to satisfied customers via stores and chains in several countries.
