Fun in the Sun.

With its fun patterns, bold hues, and sun-block protection, the Sunday Afternoons Kids' Play Hat ensures your sapling has a guaranteed fun day in the sun. Thanks to its wide brim, neck cape, and UPF 50+ rated fabric, the Play Hats provides ample coverage from the sun's harmful UV rays. Additionally, this fun-loving hat features mesh ventilated side panels for a cool, airy feel on hot summer days, while the ShieldTek DWR treatment sheds moisture and stains, should your kid drop this hat in a puddle or dirty river bank. Another innovative feature is the hat's Smart Strap that breaks off when it's snagged to prevent dangerous tangling.

Good hat but size up

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I got this hat for my toddler. She wears it camping and pool days etc. It's great quality and really cute. The one thing i have with it is that it is on the small side. There is elastic on the back so it can stretch a little but i would size up next time.

Great kid’s hat

    This hat stays on and provides excellent protection from the sun.

    Exactly what I was looking for!

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size

    My nephew will be spending his summer on the Kings River and I got this as a gift to keep him protected, So far it fits great, looks good on him and covers his face, neck, and ears perfectly for playing in the sun! Great purchase!

    Unanswered Question

    I’m interested in purchasing the royal blue sun hat for kids, the display picture of the hat looks different to the royal blue one on the Sunday afternoons website. Can you tell me if it’s the same hat as the one on the Sunday afternoons website?


    A summer staple

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    This hat lives on my kid's head anytime we go outside. The wide brim is perfect to shade his face and neck. Like all hats my boy tries to pull it off, but the chin strap helps keep it in place.


    Got this for Owen's second birthday and it fits great! His parents love how the hat covers his neck, protecting him from the harsh mountain sun. The chinstrap is a little different than the display picture, but still does the job.


    Best hat for summer!!!

      I got this hat for my Granddaughter's birthday and now she is going with this hat to all the places. I am glad she loves it!!
