“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.

Poor design. The breakaway strap clasp is so loose that the hat blows off even in a light wind. Very unhappy with this hat. When I contacted Sunday Afternoons they said this is how it's supposed to be. A hat that won't stay on your kid's head isn't worth buying.
The KIDS PLAY HAT is not just for kids! Small adults look no further! If you are small grownup seeking a hat that gives you max face and neck protection, is super lightweight, breaths and actually keeps your head cool, then this is the hat for you. This is my 6th purchase of this hat (4 sun hats and 2 rain hats in the same style). The size large/youth works great for this small gal. Most adult hats are proportionately too large for my small face and slip down. The overall proportions of this size large/youth KIDS PLAY HAT looks natural on me. It’s the same style as the adult version of this hat, just smaller. This is my go-to hat. It packs and travels well and never bends or wrinkles. It’s fine for water play in the pool or ocean but obviously not for serious swimming. Just rinse it well afterwards. I’ve never seen any fading or damage. Gardening, hiking, going to the store, sunny dates with hubby - grab this hat! I can’t say enough about how breathable and cool this hat is. I’ve ditched all my other hot hats in favor of these. Once you put on this lightweight and cool hat, you won’t want to wear another! And it's cute!!!!
I have this hat in small blue for my 2yo and large pink for my 3.5 yo. Once cinched all the way, the large fits the 3.5 yo and will fit for several years as their heads grow. These stay on in the pool and the wind and protect their scalps and necks from sun and bugs. The kids love wearing them!
I am an adult but have a small head. The kid’s large size hat fits my head. I like the sun and neck protection this hat provides while I participate in outdoor activities. My original hat’s adjustable strap buckle broke and Sundayafternoons replaced my hat. I am a very happy customer.
