Finally...a sun hat that won't flop in their eyes! The Bedhead bucket hat gives great coverage over the face and shoulders and is perfect for use in preschools and daycare centres as brim depth exceeds requirements by SunSmart guidelines and hats are rated UPF50+. We have created a unique 'anti-flop' brim with a foam insert that will stay upright even after many machine washes. We believe kids should focus on fun - not floppy brims!

Wearing a kids sun hat all year around is important in keeping children’s delicate skin protected (as well as keeping their heads warm in winter). During the hot Australian summers it’s even more important. Australian summers are harsh, and a child’s skin is more delicate than that of adults. Babies and children are more vulnerable to UV radiation and more susceptible to sunburn and skin damage. The UV exposure they receive during the early years of life greatly increases the risk of developing skin cancer as an adult.

The importance of wearing kids sun hats in Australia couldn’t be greater. At Bedhead Hats, we help parents protect their little ones any time they’re in the sun. We offer a range of hat styles, colours, prints, and sizes to meet every need. Every hat is rated UPF50+ excellent protection from the sun. Styles like our Classic Bucket hats provide coverage all around a kid’s head, ears, and the back of the neck.

Hat styles like our Classic Bucket hats are made of lightweight, stretchy cotton that breathes. The comfortable fit and the cooling effect of the cotton helps kids forget they even have them on, which means you can be confident their delicate skin is protected. 

For waterplay days, a Classic or Ponytail Swim Hat is ideal for bigger kids. Made from polyester elastane nylon, the hats are chlorine-friendly and pool safe. We recommend wearing these hats for swimming and opting for a cotton hat for everyday wear. For optimal sun protection at the beach, consider adding one of our rash vests. We also carry wet bags in the same fun prints as our swim baby hats.

Protecting your child from the harmful damage caused by the sun isn’t an option, it’s a necessity. Shop Bedhead Hats for the best collection of kids sun hats in Australia.
