We all know kids don't exactly relish the thought of putting on sunscreen. They squirm, they struggle and they run off when you pull out the bottle. Well, we've found a product that they will actually love putting on! Sunbow Sunscreen has a new line of fun in the sun products featuring Dora the Explorer and SpongeBob SquarePants.

This all came out of a father's desire to keep his daughter smiling when applying the necessary sun protection. The products are all natural and smell like bubble gum! No kid can resist! But the really cool part? They go on in color and dry clear! You can make your kids blue, pink or yellow! They've got a zinc oxide cream and a sun stick, but the one we're absolutely loving right now is the sunscreen spray. It's got SPF 30, it's free of oxybenzone and octinoxate and protects from UVA and UVB rays. It's also a non-aerosol spray to protect kids from inhalation. You've smelled those continuous spray sunscreens, right? Odds are you've tasted them as well. It's worse than putting a powdered drink mix in a pitcher!

The SpongeBob formula goes on yellow and the Dora formula goes on blue, so you'll never miss a spot. I love this product so much that I may have kept the bottle I was going to send to my niece! Don't tell her.

Sunbow Sunscreen is available at and retails for $10.
