UltimateMama has purchased numerous goggles for her kids in the past 9 years, many with extremely disappointing results (uncomfortable, leakage, breakable, and so on).  However, after purchasing Aqua Sphere’s youth goggles she found a winner.  For younger children who swim recreationally, the Moby Kid goggles reign supreme.  For older children, the Vista Jr mask is a must have for ultimate comfort in the water!  UltimateMama’s kids used their amazing Aqua Sphere googles on a recent snorkeling expedition in the Caribbean!

UltimateMama is a huge fan of Calypso St. Barth clothing and accessories.  UltimateMama especially loves me some tunics and dresses from Calypso!

Additionally, the Calypso line is also available for girls at Target.
