However, over the past few years we've noticed that it definitely makes a difference to find products that are constructed specifically for kids when it comes to certain areas. One such example? Headphones and earbuds.
Whether at home for some much-needed silence or while traveling in the car or on a plane, we've tried using regular headphones on the girls and have had limited success. As they are always too big, they are constantly sliding down or falling off or jabbing into somewhere wrong, and the whole thing ends up being a hassle that is more trouble than it's worth.
Instead, we have now found the absolutely perfect way to combine safe, child-friendly features with the adorable style and colors that makes my kids' eyes light up in the form of Sofia the First Princess in Training Headphones from KIDdesigns.
A leading manufacturer of cutting edge, interactive electronic toys, learning aids, and real electronics for kids of all ages, KIDdesigns understands and respects the importance that toys play in kids' lives. With that responsibility in mind, they combine state-of-the-art technology with old-fashioned fun to create innovative, exciting, and enjoyable products that kids will love and parents can trust.
And these Sofia the First Headphones are a perfect example! Featuring a playful, purple and white design that is perfect for any Sofia fan, these headphones take the design one step further with an adorable mini tiara right on top.
But KIDdesigns didn't leave out practicality and comfort as well. These headphones include an adjustable headband, soft ear cushions and sound level regulation to protect young ears. Could these be any more of a dream come true for my princess-loving Little Sister B?
Right out of the package, it was clear to see that these headphones would be easy to wear, easy to adjust and easy on the eyes — they're just that cute!
In a matter of seconds, these headphones have literally made our life so much easier! Little Sister B absolutely adores the princess look, the sturdy and lightweight construction, and the soft cushions that fit perfectly on her small ears.
Every little detail, even down to the stitching, comes together to make these just so much fun!
At the same time, I'm beyond excited about the volume control (more than once she has started watching a television show on the iPad with the sound accidentally turned up all the way) and the peace of mind that comes with the quiet in the house and the safety for my kids' ears.
Plus, these headphones adjust extremely easily on each side so that they fit perfectly on Big Sister E (at age 7) as well as Little Sister B (at 5) and I have no doubt that these will work for us for many years in the future!
These KIDdesigns Sofia the First Headphones are just all-around fantastic on so many levels that any possibility of Little Sister B not wanting to wear headphones was completely eliminated the moment that she first saw them.
As well as immediately reaching for them when she wants to listen to music or play a game...
...she has been known to wear them around the house simply as an accessory, as well. What other pair of headphones would entice my daughter enough to have them on while eating lunch or while playing a board game?
Retailing for $19.99, the Sofia the First Princess in Training Headphones can be purchased at Toys 'R' Us as well as from Amazon. You can also find out much more about KIDdesigns' other creative, kid-safe, entertaining products at KIDdesigns.com.
