When it comes to protection from the sun I am a freak for my kids, they have to be wearing sunblock and hats at all times when outside. This is not generally a problem except that finding cute hats to wear on Maddisyn i am finding is becoming a large challenge and I cannot find anything decent for Holden at all. Wallaroo Hat Company makes some of the cutest hats I seen in a long time. I was given the opportunity to review the Cricket Hat for Maddisyn and she looks so adorable when she is wearing it. The Cricket Hat is a great unisex hat that comes in 6 colors for both boy and girl. We received the Fuchsia color for Maddisyn and with her skin tone it is just perfect. The Cricket hat has a 2″ stitched brim, an external adjustable strap with toggle so you can ensure it fits your child around their head as well as an adjustable neck strap to keep it on their heads. Available in two sizes: S/M (54cm) and M/L (56cm). 100% cotton. Handwash cold. The cricket is on sale currently for $10.00. Wallaroo hats sells a ton of different kinds of hats for both men and women as well as children I insist you go check it out for yourself.
While your shopping for your new hat watch for the UPF 50+ icon throughout the store, that icon means you are going to get the best protection from the harmful rays of the sun. “Look for our sun icon throughout the site to determine which hats are UPF 50+. These fabrics are tested by the Australian Radiation Protection Agency and block 97.5% of the sun’s ultroviolet rays. Ultraviolet radiation, or UV, is present in sunlight. The Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) shows how well a fabric protects your skin from solar UV. But remember, a Wallaroo hat only protects the skin it covers. Safeguard the rest of your body by wearing sunglasses and sunscreen.”
I love Maddisyns new hat and I really love knowing that she is fully protected from the sun at all times, as a mom that is my #1 concern is her safety.
