FAQ

What if I need to change my order?

We process orders quickly, but we'll do our best to accommodate any changes to your order. Please send an email to orders@babiators.com and put 'URGENT CHANGE ORDER' in the email subject line. While we can't guarantee we will be able to change it before it ships (our warehouse works really fast!), we will certainly try to help you!

When will I get my order?

We strive to ship all orders as soon as possible at the best shipping rates available. Orders are processed and shipped during normal business hours, Monday through Fridays only. Orders received before 1 PM EST are processed the same day. Orders placed after 1 PM EST are processed on the following business day. A shipping confirmation email with tracking details will be sent to you on the day your order is shipped. On domestic orders, please allow 5 days for transit after receiving your shipment notification. Domestic and international shipping time frames will vary depending on address and shipment method select.

What's the status of my order?

Please send an email to orders@babiators.com, and we'd be glad to check on the order for you.

What shipping method do you use?

On all domestic and international orders, to provide our customers with the best possible shipping rates, our standard shipping method is through the US Postal Service. However, US and European customers may also select UPS for shipment, if preferred. Please note that US Postal Service only provides tracking information for shipments within the US. If you are a European customer and require tracking information, you must select UPS as your preferred carrier during checkout.

Will I receive a tracking number when my order ships?

Yes! You will get a shipment confirmation email with all of the details. If you can't find that email, don't worry - we've got you covered! Just email us at orders@babiators.com. We will get your tracking information and send it over as soon as possible!

Can I expedite the shipping on my order?

Yes, that is an option we offer our customers. For domestic or European orders, we offer the option to ship via UPS which can speed up your delivery date. For European orders shipped by UPS, you can expect delivery within 1 to 2 weeks vs. the US Postal Service, which could take between 4 to 6 weeks for delivery to Europe. All orders will ship from our warehouse in Pennsylvania from zip code 16301. Please check the UPS site for transit time estimates.

We are glad to know you are interested in our other colors, styles, and products. That said, our guarantee program only offers an exact replacement for the product that was lost or broken.

What are Babiators products made of?

Sunglasses (original and polarized)

Babiators are made of a soft and flexible rubber material which makes them super comfortable and virtually indestructible. Lenses are made from impact and shatter-resistant polycarbonate – the same material used in most adult sunglasses. The rubber material used in Babiators frames (specifically called thermoplastic rubber, a blend of rubber and polyester), is also used in a range of medical applications (like breathing tubes, IVs etc.) and is actually often recommended as a safe alternative to PVC. Our glasses are not made from PVC or vinyl.

Submariners

Submariners frames and lenses are made of impact and shatter-resistant polycarbonate. The gasket around the mask, and the strap and the gasket around the mask are made from liquid silicone. The submarine case is made of plastic.

Accessories packs

The Babiators carrying case is made of cotton, the lens cloth is a super soft microfiber, and the strap is made of microfiber and neoprene.

Rx Glasses

Rx glasses are made from an ultra-flexible, lightweight material (TR-90 nylon) that can bend and keep up with active kids.

Rocket Packs

Our awesome Rocket Pack backpack is a polyester/nylon blend. To be more exact the exterior is 80% Polyester and 20% Nylon. The inner lining is 100% Polyester.

Are Babiators products BPA free?

As you can imagine, safety is a top priority for us. We test each component of our sunglasses (polycarbonate lenses, flexible rubber frames, cardboard box, etc.) and all other products during each and every production run for a variety of substances, including BPA. BPA has never been detected in any of our products.

What is the difference between the Original and Polarized sunglasses?

All Babiators are UV400 lenses offering 100% protection against UVA and UVB rays. Our Polarized sunglasses have an additional coating that reduces sun glare. A polarized lens reduces glare from surfaces like water, snow, and glass, and helps you to see more clearly. While polarized lenses may be a bit more expensive than conventional sunglasses, some consumers prefer polarized sunglasses because they selectively block out glare, rather than making the whole field of vision dimmer. Polarized lenses are recommended for children under the age of 18 because the lenses in children’s eyes are clearer (with less pigmentation) than those in an adult's lens, which allows for greater levels of damaging UV light to enter the eye.

Are Babiators sunglasses Rx-able?

Babiators are Rx-able for certain prescriptions (-4 to +4). It's at the discretion of the optician. We also have a Rx specific frame that you can talk to your optician about ordering!

What size Babiators sunglasses should I purchase for my child?

Every little aviator grows at different stages and the fit will depend on the size of your child. As a general guideline the Junior size fits most children ages Birth - 3 years and the Classic size fits most children ages 3- 7 years. To help you consider what size to order, you can refer to our product dimensions.

For the Junior size: Front frame width = 11 cm, Lens height = 4 cm, Lens diagonal = 4.5 cm, Temple length = 10 cm.

For the Classic size: Front frame width = 11.5 cm, Lens height = 4.5 cm, Lens diagonal = 5 cm, Temple length = 10.5 cm. When in doubt, we recommend ordering a size up.

Aces fueled by Babiators is our line for children ages 7-14. Aces measurements: Front frame width=2.125", Lens height=1.5" Temple length=7"

How should I care for my Babiators products?

Sunglasses (original and polarized)

Babiators sunglasses can be cleaned simply with warm water and soap. For optimal cleansing we recommend using a combination of warm water, soap, and vinegar. Use a soft lint-free lens cloth for cleaning the lenses. You can visit our site to check out our Ready to Fly! Accessories Pack that includes a Babiators strap, soft-sided glasses case, and lens cloth: http://www.babiators.com/store/accessories-pack.html. The accessories pack may be just what you are looking for to help keep your Babiators safe and protected!

Submariners

Babiators Submariners have an anti-fog coating on the inner side of the lens. The best way to clean it is to rinse it with water, shake off the water and let air dry. Rubbing the lens with cloth can easily damage the anti-fog coating and thus affect the anti-fog function. Do not use any type of soap to clean the lens. If there is a chance anti-fog weakens after long time use, you may purchase an anti-fog solution at a drugstore, a sporting goods, or a divers supply store to restore the anti-fog coating.

Rocket Packs

Babiators Rocket Packs can be spot cleaned with warm water and mild detergent, and then air dried. Do not iron.
