Play Hat

With its fun patterns, bold hues, and sun-block protection, the Sunday Afternoons Kids' Play Hat ensures your sapling has a guaranteed fun day in the sun. Thanks to its wide brim, neck cape, and UPF 50+ rated fabric, the Play Hats provides ample coverage from the sun's harmful UV rays. Additionally, this fun-loving hat features mesh ventilated side panels for a cool, airy feel on hot summer days, while the ShieldTek DWR treatment sheds moisture and stains, should your kid drop this hat in a puddle or dirty river bank. Another innovative feature is the hat's Smart Strap that breaks off when it's snagged to prevent dangerous tangling.

4 years and going strong!

4 years and going strong!  We bought this hat when our son was 6 months old and he started wearing it then.  He’s now 4yo and it’s his favorite hat.  We use it spring, summer and fall.  It still looks great and he has worn it a ton!  Love, love this hat!

Long-lasting hat for kids

I bought this hat in medium for my 3 year old almost four years ago. And it lasted!!! I loved it so much that I got it for little sister, and now they are both ready for a bigger size. These hats are great in the strong Alabama sun and do great getting wet. I will recommend this brand to any other skin-conscious friend!

Disappointed in safety clips on strap

I bought 3 hats. Overall they fit great and I like them. The kids really struggle with the safety release clip on the strap though. It undoes quite easy and they struggle to do it back up. One of these clips is now damaged after only two weeks use and replacement parts aren't available. The 3 stars is because of these clips and lack of replacement parts.

The BEST Kids Hat!

I been buying this kids hat for the past 6 years. It’s very comfortable for babies and my toddler and now older son wear it well too. Great sun protection, as well as being light and comfortable.

Fantastic kids hat

We've had this hat for two years, and has been worth every penny. It's stays on in wind, for swimming, and is comfortable enough out daughter seems to forget it's on.

Best kids beach and sun hat!

I got 2 larges even though my kids are only 2 and 4. You can adjust the hats quite a bit so they fit them great now and have plenty of run to grow! I got SO many compliments on them on the beach. The coverage is great. They can be packed easily. They dry fast. I was worried the kids wouldn’t keep them on, but they did and no complaints from them. So they must be comfortable.

Love the hats - more bright boys colors please!!

Love these hats for my kids! Please make more bright and colorful options for boys! My son is always disappointed that the only colors for boys are green and blue - they like neons too!
