Hi! I’m Nicholas, your Epic Kids columnist. I’m a 2nd grade CEO, and this month I’m sharing four of my favorite gear finds for spring, especially as the sun starts to shine!
1. Unbreakable sunglasses
Roshambo Eyewear is a company that sells colorful and comfortable sunglasses for all ages. What makes them super special is that they’re unbreakable - you can twist, turn, and drop them and they don’t break! They can also float and come in many different colors- you can choose your frame and lens color. My favorite is the McFly Red Shades with green polarized mirrored lenses.
2. Stylish sun-safe swimwear
Tom & Teddy sells swimwear for boys (you can even get matching trunks for dad!). The swimwear is sun safe with UPF50+ protection so you don’t get burnt. Choose between a bunch of designs like palm trees, turtles, starfish, stripes and more. You can also buy t-shirts and flip-flops.
3. Cool spring clothes
A company that sells neat kid’s clothes is Hanna Andersson. From babies to big kids, Hanna Andersson offers the softest clothes ever made of organic cotton (which my mom says is a good thing). I really dig their graphic tees and sun block hoodies. My baby brother, who’s shark-obsessed, loves the shark-inspired terry jacket.
4. Waterproof bags
I love taking pictures, especially in the pool or at the beach, so I found a super cool bag that can be worn around the waist- and it’s waterproof. It keeps things (like cameras, iPhones, and toys) from getting washed away or damaged from water. The bags are from Booe, and when used right, no water gets inside! Plus, the bags float, so in case they slip off, they won’t sink.
ABOUT NICHOLAS BUBECK
Hi! My name is Nicholas, and I am 8 years old.
When the Coronavirus started, my mom (Nadine Bubeck) told me to get creative and start a business. I was 6 years old at the time and doing virtual Kindergarten. I love art, so when my mom put a bunch of crafts on our dining table, I happily got to work.
I ended up making a really cool craft plane, and my baby brother took it away from me (he wanted it!). So, then a lightbulb went off in my head; I thought: Hey, my business should be selling craft plane kits for kids!
I chose planes because I love to travel. I want kids like me to use their imagination... putting together my special planes and pretend they're going anywhere in the world.
I sell a bunch of different DIY Kits. They're colorful, cool, and you can even buy special decorating kits, birthday kits, and accessories.
A portion of every sale goes to the Triple Heart Foundation. My mom's friend runs this beautiful organization that gives books to NICUs all around the country. I care about the NICU because it helps babies get born and keep them healthy. I was in the NICU, too! I was born early and am so thankful to the NICU because they helped me a lot.
It makes me feel happy to own my own business. Thank you so much for supporting me!
