Mini shades are not only cute, they’re also a great way to protect your little one’s peepers. And from funky to brightly colored, there’s something for everyone as these celeb tots prove.

Alabama Jennings rocks an adorable pair of Hello Kitty cat eyes while Zuma Rossdale looks cool in Ray Ban Jr. aviators ($59). Even Beyoncé‘s nephew Julez Smith gets in on the fun in the hip Paul Smith/Oakley “Frogskin” sunglasses.

Just like the company’s popular adult line, Ray-Ban Jr. sunglasses are classic, well-made and super stylish. We’re loving these pint-size Wayfarers ($60), which are available in turquoise (left), yellow and purple.

Why can’t people just let their kids be kids instead of dressing them up in these costume like outfits to try to make them look cool. It is so apparent that the clothes and glasses are to the parents liking. It is almost like this “hey look at my cool kid” type of thing. Very corny.

I can not wrap my mind around the thought of paying 60 dollars for sunglasses for an adult, never mind a child! Wow!

I love these shades. They are too cute…and a total necessity. We have been putting sunglasses on our little ones since birth. It is protection from the sun..just like sunscreen, which we use, as well. If they are made cute and stylish then more people might buy them. I just bought our baby a pair yesterday and he loves them….he hasn’t tried to take them off at all. I think that the sooner a child/baby starts to wear them, the easier it is for you and them.

I got the cutest sunglasses for my two toddlers from Once Upon A Child for $3.99. They were new, not used, and look like mini designer styles. And all parents dress their toddlers to their liking…duh! I will dress them how I think looks cute until they start picking out their own clothes!
