The History of Frogglez

March 06, 2014

 

It was about 5 years ago when I was at one of our first swim lessons with Olivia, my oldest. She was 5 years old back then and I clearly remember the pool...

A small room, packed with parents and kids, noisy, rowdy, hot and filled with stress in the air.

The swim instructor was standing in the pool and working with kids as they sat on the edge of the pool. Some were crying, some were quiet, but the most notable part of this entire Circus was the parents...The parents were trying everything in their power to be optimistic, happy and encouraging. I was one of them.

Now it was our turn. We rushed over to the pool, I "tried" to put on her swim goggles (the water is so chlorinated that you could smell it a mile away), but they were too tight and were pulling on her hair. I was stressed, she was getting frustrated, and the entire situation became one big dance around trying to make these swim goggles fit.

At that moment I had the usual thought: "Why are there no comfortable swim goggles for kids, this is just crazy!"

I went home that day and scowered the internet for comfortable swim goggles. There were none. So, being a hobby inventor I went into my basement "laboratory" and cut up some of my wetsuits (I now live in Kentucky and these poor wetsuits were just aging away next to my surfboards...). 

A few minutes later I had created a functional prototype that solved our problems!

At our next swim lesson I was the only parent that did not struggle with swim goggles! Yes, the prototypes were not the prettiest but they worked. This gave me the encouragement to work on more esthetic versions. Soon parents were asking me where I got them!

 

Making future versions not only functional but cool was the fun part! I now make Frogglez Goggles in all shapes and forms, customize them for swim schools and water parks, and who knows what the future holds....

One thing is for certain, Frogglez Goggles are the most comfortable swim goggles in the World!

 

Keep Swimming,

 

Papa Frogglez

Don’t Keep Your Fish Out of Water

It’s important to keep your kids playing in the water so they’re comfortable when lessons resume. Not only will they burn off excess energy and sleep well, but they’ll keep their swimming muscles strong and be ready to put their faces in when the time comes. Even children with previous swimming experience should get into the water early and often. They all benefit from the additional confidence and water-safety skills gained during play.

Size Guide

Not sure which size to order?

Measure your head circumference!

Place soft measuring tape around your child’s head about 1/2-inch above the ear, across the mid-forehead where a hat would sit. Hold the tape firmly, but not too tightly, and write down the measurement of where the tape meets. If you don’t have a soft measuring tape, use a piece of string and measure as directed. Then, lay the string on a ruler or yardstick to determine measurement.

Head Circumference

Recommended Goggles

15-18 inches Frogglez Youth (3-6)
16-22 inches Frogglez Youth (3-10)
19-22 inches Frogglez Adult (10+)

 

In between sizes?

Frogglez universal strap adapts to almost any swim gogglesFrogglez Goggles easily adjust to fit most kids. Kids can tighten or loosen without taking them off using the Velcro straps. Use the optional black silicone rings included with every pair of Frogglez to adjust even more.

Make Frogglez smaller: Remove the silicone rings for smaller children and thread the Velcro right through the goggles.

Make Frogglez bigger: Adding an extension ring is easy! Double up the rings to extend the strap length for bigger kids.  

 

Still having trouble with the fit?

Frogglez Goggles use a soft silicone to create a leakproof seal. The gentle pressure of the seal is designed to withstand cannonballs, dives, and splashes. That said, eyes and noses are different sizes and shapes, which can affect the way goggles fit.

There isn’t one perfect goggle, only the one that best fits your face. If you find that the eyepieces don’t fit, don’t fret. Frogglez universal strap attaches to most goggles on the market.  The black silicone rings included with each pair of Frogglez makes attachment to other goggles simple.

 

We offer a fit guarantee!
