In 2001, BanZ, Inc. found its start in "the land down under," one of the harshest UV climates in the world. One Australian's fruitless search for a proper pair of baby sunglasses for his infant son forced him to take action, leading to the development of the Original Baby BanZ sunglasses.
First introduced to the American market in 2002, BanZ is best known for their unique wrap-around, banded design and 100% UV protective lenses. Often imitated, but never duplicated, BanZ continue to be the standard for baby and children's sunglasses and UV protection worldwide.
The expanding BanZ Protection Collection includes: adjustable baby, toddler and kids wrap-around sunglasses for ages 0-5, adjustable UPF 50+ sun hats, UPF 50+ swimwear, funky Retro BanZ for ages 0-5, Junior BanZ for ages 3-10, Ski BanZ for ages 3+, UV Swim Goggles, and their award-winning earBanZ hearing protection for infants and children. In 2017 BanZ introduced the first Bluetooth® enabled headset for infants; it also protects against harmful environmental noises.
BanZ has not only made a name for itself in the United States, but across the globe as BanZ products can be found in countries around the world including Canada, South Africa, Japan, Korea, Germany, China, Greece, Switzerland, Brazil, France and England. The BanZ US headquarters and shipping warehouse is located in Missouri with corporate offices in Australia.
In an ever deteriorating UV climate, BanZ is steadfast in its ongoing effort to preserve the sensitive eyes, ears and precious skin of little ones everywhere. BanZ is committed to developing children's UV protective sunglasses, hats, accessories, hearing protection and swimwear that not only protect them from environmental dangers, but are also comfortable, fun to wear and strong enough to last.
