The Babiators Story

The Babiators story began on a hot, sunny day on an air military base in Beaufort, South Carolina, when Molly Fienning, a military wife, noticed something.  She noticed that the children present were all squinting uncomfortably up into the sun. Meanwhile, their pilot moms and dads stood protected and stylish in their aviator sunglasses.  

She saw a need for safe, stylish and durable kids’ sunglasses, and shared her thoughts with her husband Tom, a Marine Corps fighter pilot.  Tom said, “Let’s make them, and call them Babiators!’

Together, with longtime friends from college, Carolyn and Matthew Guard, they launched the company in 2011, working from their kitchen tables.  

Today, the Babiators crew is 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, USA, their safe, stylish and awesome products fly off to more than 30 countries, giving kids around the world the freedom and protection to tackle whatever adventures come their way.
