Children's Sun Hats

Shop Our Wide Range of Children’s Sun Hats

Our hot Australian summers make it imperative to protect our children’s delicate skin, and our winter sun can be just as bad. The ‘down-under’ sun is harsh but so welcoming to kids’ playtime. But the UV can be damaging to the skin.

The need to protect our kids from sun damage couldn’t be greater. We all know that slogan; Slip Slop Slap Seek Slide. Slapping on a hat is such a simple act, and at Marmalade Lion, our protective kid’s Sun Hats will keep your little one well-protected and comfortable.

Broad-brimmed bucket hats are most advised as they provide the best protection for the face, neck and shoulders – the bits that always find the sun first.

With great coverage over the face and shoulders, our Children’s Sun Hats are perfect for use in preschools and daycare centres, on the sports field, at the beach, in the park and anywhere your kid plays. And are rated UPF50+. They’re also adjustable so as your child grows, so does the hat.
