KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Heading to the pool or the lake is supposed to be fun, but when parents pull out the sunscreen and tell kids to dry off so they can reapply, the day seems to instantly turn from fun in the sun to sad in the sand.

Owner of SwimZip, Betsy Johnson, visited FOX 4 Monday to show off some of the new items in her swimwear collection that has built-in sun protection. They're also designed in Kansas City.

SwimZip not only has items for kids, but also for men and women.
