Real Kids Shades’ Top Ten Posts of 2012 – Part Two

Posted on Leave a comment

As our readers are aware, in anticipation of 2013, we are currently counting down the top ten most popular posts from our blog in 2012. Numbers one through five have been covered in a previous post and included subjects ranging from contest winners to tips from the Skin Cancer Foundation.


At Real Kids Shades, we were especially excited to see that our post Five Fun Outdoor Winter Activities for Children made the list as well. One of our goals is to increase awareness of the importance of protecting children’s eyes throughout all four seasons. You can read about posts one through five here.


The remaining five most popular posts turn our attention to sports safety and protecting kids’ eyes while on the go – even at school. Read on to see which posts topped our charts this year.


Xtreme Sport Sunglasses – Just Right for Soccer – Parents of athletic kids know how important it is to prevent injury on the field, and that includes eye safety.
