ro•sham•bo baby is owned and operated by San Diego family scott, julia and their baby girls, avery (3) and chloe (newborn!). we started our little company after realizing that nobody was making high quality, stylish baby sunglasses while at a baseball game with a friend’s four month old who was starting up at the bright sun. scott put his adult sunglasses on him and lightning struck.
two years later, we had the world’s best baby sunglasses ready for your little one and ours! scott didn't want stop there though, he wanted to wear matching unbreakable pink shades with avery, so we made kids and adult sizes so the whole family can match!
our name is a reference to the nostalgic game we all grew up playing (otherwise know as “rock, paper, scissor,” but “rock paper scissor baby” doesn’t have quite the same ring to it…). it also pays tribute to our autism support mission: special education and autism teachers have told us that playing ro•sham•bo can be a valuable teaching tool when kids need a quiet, calming, and personal interaction with a teacher.
we launched in june 2013 with a crowdfunding campaign to test our market and build up needed capital to fund more inventory and build this website. the result was overwhelming and the customer support and glowing feedback we received further fueled our ambition to make this dream a reality.
