I realized there was a need for better swim goggles when I took Olivia, my oldest daughter, to her swimming lesson. With the hair-pulling, leaking, slipping, and constant adjusting of her goggles, it was the classic chaotic scene you would think of. It was quite clear that I wasn’t the only one in this sinking ship. Every struggling parent at the swim lesson was trying everything in their power to be optimistic. I was one of them.
As a result of this complete and total mess, I was stressed, she was getting frustrated, and the entire situation became one big dance around trying to make these swim goggles fit and get her into the water.
Why did I invent better swimming goggles?
At this point, I knew that a new type of swim goggle was needed to spare any other parent in this situation. If I could simply do that, my goal would be achieved. Little did I know how quickly this would take off, however.
Traditional swim goggles can give you a headache
I went home that day and searched the internet for comfortable kids swim goggles. Unfortunately, I couldn't find any. There weren't any reliable leakproof, anti-hair-pulling goggles. So, being a hobby inventor, I went into my basement "laboratory" and cut up some of my wetsuits. The most comfortable swim goggles were about to be made.
Frogglez look different because they are different
Minutes later, I had created a functional prototype of Frogglez that solved our problems: the best kids swim goggles. It wasn’t the most flattering sight ever, but it was the first step towards what would eventually be a new product and company. I knew that with time and effort, I could turn this into something that parents and kids alike would love.
The Frogglez strap is a game-changer
We took the goggles with us to Olivia’s next swim lesson. This prototype was so easy to use that Olivia could put them on herself. The soft material didn’t tug on her hair and the lenses didn’t leak. She could do anything the swim instructors told her without having to constantly hold or adjust her goggles. I knew the new strap was a game-changer – it solved all of the previous issues! One happy accident was that the neoprene strap made the goggles float in the pool, so no one had to dive to the bottom to retrieve them.
Parents love these easy-to-use kids swim goggles
Other parents saw how well the new goggles worked in the swimming pool and asked me about our unique goggles. They wanted to know where I got them and how they could get a pair for their children.
I decided to share my invention with the world
The innovative design is now patented and we make adjustable Frogglez Goggles for kids and even adult goggles! We are even able to customize the Frogglez for swim schools and water parks. Though my team and I have the mindset of moving forward and growing, we are still a small family-run company with a passion for quality and comfort in our goggles over anything else.
Looking towards the future
Frogglez are the first choice of swim instructors around the world because the unique design allows kids to put them on independently. When kids are confident in their goggles, they are more likely to go completely underwater and open up a world of possibilities.
One thing is for certain, Frogglez Goggles are the best goggles for kids, and the most comfortable swim goggles in the world! I’m sharing my story so Frogglez can help more kids and parents be confident and safe when swimming.
