Whether your kid has taken to the water like a fish or they much prefer their land legs, you should make sure your kids have a good pair of goggles. You don’t want them to keep popping up from the water and asking for help, because they’re getting frustrated with their goggles. This swimming gear could be slipping off their head or alternatively, it could be too tight. Even if the goggles fit perfectly, there could be persistently leaking sockets. There’s nothing worse than diving underneath the water for five seconds and feeling your goggles fill up with water. All of those factors can take the fun out of swimming. That’s why we rounded up the best goggles for kids.
Our picks are leak-proof. They’re also adjustable, so your child can wear from the age of 3 until they’re nearly 10 years old. Usually made out of silicone and latex-free materials, the goggles are made to fit comfortably, so your child can focus on becoming a better swimmer—or splashing their sibling. Most goggles on this list are UV-resistant and anti-fog, so your child is protected from the sun and has perfect vision underwater.

1. Speedo Unisex-Child Swim Goggles
These UV-protectant goggles are made to fit a variety of face shapes of kids from age 3 to age 8. They’re also designed to keep water from flooding the goggles while also not constricting your little one’s face. You can adjust the tightness with the clips on the sides of the latex-free goggles. The best part: They won’t fog up when your little one is freestyling. They come in seven vibrant color combos.
2. EverSport Kids Swim Goggles
Made out of flexible silicone, these goggles create a firm seal around the eyes and are anti-fog. Your child will be able to see without any blurring, so they can focus on learning how to swim. This set comes with two pairs of swimming goggles in case your child loses one, a portable mesh bag and four earplugs. You can pick from seven different goggle sets, so you can find two color combos that your kids will love.
3. OutdoorMaster Kids Swim Goggles
The goggles are encased in silicone, which means that your kids won’t have massive ring imprints around their eyes when they take these goggles off. You get two sets of adjustable goggles with this set. One set has clear lenses, for indoor swimming, and the other set has tinted lenses, for outdoor swimming. Your child should be able to see as clear as fish do underwater. The goggles are available in three different packs.
