**I was provided the following products to help facilitate my review. All opinions are my own.
This past summer we took our first long road trip as a family! We had a wonderful time, but between the boring hours of driving and bickering in the backseat about who was touching who…I realized we needed to come up with some ways to keep the kids entertained from time to time. Technology is a great way to do this, however with three tablets or gaming devices going…it can get loud and distracting for the driver. That’s why I was thankful when introduced to Animalz headphones for kids…the answer I’ve been looking for!
Whether it’s at home or on the go, Animalz by ReTrak retractable headphones are a fun, furry accessory designed for little ears. Just seeing the six lovable soft fabric animal designs (Biker Bearz, DJ Panda, Jam Bunneez, Scuba Shark, Skate Monkeez and Surf Dawgz) I knew this was something any kid would love and was excited we were going to have the opportunity to review a couple.
We were sent the Biker Bearz and Skate Monkeez Animalz headphones for the kids. Designed for ages 3+, they are perfect for my three ages 3, 5, and 7!
- Volume Limiting Technology
- Over Ear Design
- Tangle free storage
- Kid-friendly design and durability
When our Animalz arrived, the kids were squealing with excitement. I mean, who wouldn’t be at the sight of these super cute headphones?! They are adorable!
Other than the kid-friendly look and design, I appreciate that these headphones are made with a volume limiting technology. According to the Journal of Pediatrics, more than 10 percent of children ages 9 to 19 have noise induced hearing loss. Prolonged exposure to sound louder than 85 db can damage a child’s ears causing permanent hearing impairment. Knowing this, it was great to learn that these are made to protect young ears. It helps to give me peace of mind that I don’t have to worry about overexposure and that Animalz volume limiter sets 85 db as the max volume for optimal ear protection. I even took a listen and these headphones offer crystal-clear sound quality.
