Here at Olympic Eyewear, we don't limit our inventory exclusively to products for adults. We also sell inexpensive kid's sunglasses in bulk. Moreover, we sell them for the same reasons you should be selling them in your online or brick-and-mortar store. If you are not selling kid's sunglasses, why not?
Some people think of kid's sunglasses as a niche product with limited appeal. That may have been true 10 or 15 years ago, but it's no longer the case in 2022. We now see an emerging market for kid's sunglasses that shouldn't be ignored. If you are not convinced, keep reading. Below are the top two reasons you should be selling kid's sunglasses.
Medical Professionals Advise Using Them
We all know the number one medical reason for wearing sunglasses: to protect the eyes against harmful UV rays. Well, the kids are not immune from harm. That's why so many medical professionals are now advising parents to utilize sunglasses regardless of the ages of their kids. They are even recommending sunglasses for infants.
In a recent article published by the What to Expect website, contributor Jenn Sinrich cited advice given to her by medical professionals she interviewed for the piece. One of the professionals she interviewed made it clear that a baby's developing skin and eyes are more susceptible to UV damage compared to older kids and adults.
That makes sense. Young children are more vulnerable to all sorts of environmental conditions while their bodies are still developing. Knowing that, putting a pair of sunglasses on an infant or toddler makes just as much sense as insisting that your older children wear their shades whenever they leave the house.
More Parents Want to Utilize Them
The second of our two reasons is a direct result of the first. Here it is – more parents want to utilize sunglasses as a result of advice offered by a pediatrician. Simply put, parents are listening to doctor recommendations. If the family doctor says sunglasses for the children, mom and dad are going to heed that recommendation.
Parents naturally want to do what is best for their children. They naturally want to protect the kids from any unnecessary harm. Based on what we know about sunglasses and UV protection, investing in shades for everyone in the family – including the little ones – seems like the right thing to do.
As a retailer, offering adult sunglasses without equivalent products for the kids is to limit your own sales. Rest assured that parents who cannot buy kid's sunglasses from you have every reason not to buy their own sunglasses from you either. It is just common sense.
