Things We Like: Splish, Splash Swim Goggles

It’s a gorgeous sunny day at the pool with your family. The kids are laughing and splashing, and jumping into the pool. Then your child moseys over to you with their dreaded goggles in their hands. This is going to be fun … they need your help getting their goggles back on. You’re going to have to aim the eye part at their eyes while you are getting dripped on, all while you struggle to get the plastic strap part over the back of their head without ripping out a wad of their hair. Maybe your sweet little love is just coming over to say, “Hi Momma, look how long I can hold my breath!” Maybe this won’t be a goggle battle. “Mom! Can you help me with my goggles?” Goggles 1: Mom 0. Soon, “Ow! You’re hurting me! Why are you hurting me?!” can be heard as the goggles slide over your kid’s wet hair, ripping it as the goggles settle. You know it hurts! You were a kid once, after all! But why, oh why, do they keep putting these goggles back on when they hurt them so bad?!


I have a product recommendation to even the goggles-parent score. I recently saw an ad from The Boxwood Boys store for Splash Swim Goggles ( What’s this, I thought? Could this be the solution to my biggest pool problem?! I ordered a pair for each of my boys, and crossed my fingers that this wasn’t one of those too good to be true moments. Let me tell you, after a week of using these on vacation, I love them! My kids can put their goggles on, and adjust them themselves! No more coming up to Mommy every single time they take their goggles off. No more whining about their hair being pulled out. The stretchy fabric allows kids to put goggles on themselves, without any hair pulling or adjusting! Any time I can recommend a product to reduce my fellow parents’ headaches, I am happy to do so. This is one of those recommendations. These are innovative, genius, and solve the long lasting feud between parents and goggles!
