Longtime friends Molly and Ted Fienning and Carolyn and Matthew Guard met in college more than 10 years ago. After graduation, they vacationed together and dreamed of starting their own businesses. The idea for Babiators was born on a military base in Beaufort, SC, when Molly saw her fellow military wives' kids squinting in the sun while their pilot Moms and Dads stood protected and stylish in their aviator sunglasses. She then shared her idea for safe, stylish, and durable kids' sunglasses with her aviator husband Ted, who said, "Let's make them, and call them Babiators!"
The Fienning and Guard families loved the idea of creating high-quality, affordable, safe, durable and stylish products that let kids be kids and be protected, and recognized the strong potential of the business and took off with the idea at mach speed.
The company launched in 2011, and today, the Babiators "Crew" is growing fast and quickly becoming a leading children's retail brand. Forbes Magazine recently named Babiators one of America's 100 Most Promising Companies of 2014! From their world headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, their safe, stylish and awesome products fly off to more than 45 countries, giving kids around the world the freedom and protection to tackle whatever adventures come their way.
