“The Kids’ Play Hat is our favorite because it’s light, easy to put on, yet hard for kids to take off, and keeps our son’s face and neck covered at all times. We call it his “epic” hat for “epic adventures.”"-
Our #1 bestseller for a reason—kids love to play in the sun, and parents love to protect them. Sun-smart fabric and hat design keep natural-born adventurers safe and happy all the live-long day. Playproof details like a breakaway chinstrap, customizable sizing band, floatable brim, and stain resistance ensure that this hat lasts for summers to come. The back veil not only protects little necks from rays, but also allows the hat to sit comfortably in a stroller. And? Total cuteness.

I bought the medium size for my toddler twins and found it so worth the investment. When they outgrew their hats at age 4 I ordered size large. That's how much I love this hat, enough to order the exact same thing one size up. This hat stays on all day because they forget they are wearing it. It's that comfortable. And it provides so much protection!
We all have Sunday Afternoon hats (parents and daughter). Until age 6, this sun hat was great in the size medium. We ordered the next size up for 5-12 year olds. It is way too big for a 6 year old. The brim is just too much and she can't see anything. I would go with a bucket hat for a 6 year old. At age 8 or 9 this hat in a large probably works great. That being said our pink medium age 2-5 we wore for 4 years and it is great. It has faded slightly but overall it was the absolute perfect hat. I am saving this large hat for the future but ordering a bucket for now.
I originally bought this hat at a retail "adventure" sports store. I am an adult with a small head who has had great difficulty finding hats that fit. I love this hat! I have it in cream youth size and have owned the same one for 10 years using it from spring to early fall! It is lightweight, and cooler than any other and fits anywhere I pack it Sometimes I roll the brim and it always reshapes. Keeping it clean has been easy using mild soap and cold water and it dries very fast. It goes on all my trips. Thank you for continuing to have it...I was afraid after 10 years, I would not find it again!
LOVE this hat...we're in year two with the small/infant size and it is the only hat that my daughter doesn't rip off (even when the chin strap hangs loose). The adjustable strap in the back keeps it snug and the stiff brim ensures the hat doesn't flop in her face. I've ordered the hat for 3 of my daughter's cousins as well.
Had this hat for three years. I'm an adult and the large fit me great. This was my go-to hat in all sun, desert treks, and on the water--everyone else lots up with sunscreen and I'm the only one with no sunburn. Unfortunately, I lost it last week so ordering another.
