“Headphones for Kids are the first stereo headphones specifically designed to function, last and look like the adult versions but with the comfort, style and size kids love,” said iParenting. The iParenting Media Awards are judged by child experts, child care facilities, individual reviewers, and parents. These judges determine the best products in the children’s media and juvenile products industry and recognize those products with the prestigious annual iParenting Media Awards.

Priced at only $19.99, Kidz Gear Headphones for Kids’ unique safety and comfort features include independent volume controls, child-friendly ergonomic design with soft padded child-size ear-cups that deliver the same listening experience as their adult counterparts, but at a fraction of the cost. Kidz Gear products are not typical “toys,” but adult products built for kids. The products are designed by founder and mother Laurie Peterson to solve the never-ending battle between a child’s desire for his or her parent’s things — headphones, binoculars, walkie-talkies — and the parent’s fear of them destroying expensive products.

“We are extremely excited to be awarded with a prestigious iParenting Media Award for our Kidz Gear Headphones for Kids,” said Laurie Peterson, Founder, Kidz Gear. “Kidz Gear’s goal is to produce adult-quality child-sized consumer products and accessories without the expensive price tag.”
