Disney films… I do know of a lot of them and I have certainly seen a few but not the recent ones. However, I have heard an awful lot about Frozen, mainly off my friends who are parents complaining about the songs their children keep singing on repeat. I have to say that is probably something I am not looking forward to when my little girl grows up. You are all probably thinking I have gone mad and what has Frozen got to do with glasses? Well… that is because there is a kiddies Frozen eyewear range available at Specsavers!
Normally children’s eyewear is not my thing just because I don’t wear them myself, therefore I don’t feel I can make a good judgement on them. However now I have a baby I am getting more and more interested in them, just incase she needs to wear glasses in the future… I am starting my research early.
So what do I think of these Frozen glasses? Well, the colours are spot on from icey blue to a light purple. I was sent 4 frames to look at and they all have a different characters printed on the arms (that match the colour of the frames). There are also some subtle glittery sparkles for good measure. I am pretty sure that any girl out there who is a fan of the movie (or just loves Disney and is a wannabe princess at heart) will like this range.
I am a new parent so I don’t have the experience of buying my child a pair of glasses (considering she is only 6 months old) but I do have plenty of experience of wearing frames myself so I gathered I just need to apply the same rules to children glasses. I may need to add in extra factors such as, kids being really active so can the frame handle it etc. All the frames do have a springy hinges so the arms are able to flip back. For an adult that is of course sufficient enough but for a child I wonder if a more flexible hinge would be better for them since they are rather active. To me the frames all feel rather rigid although this might mean they are more robust.
One thing that baffles me with all children’s frames (not just these Frozen ones) is that the the nose pads are the same size as adults frames. Surely their nose is smaller and a big nose pad can be annoying for them? I don’t know but I am just trying to imagine. Obviously I am unable to test them out to see how comfy they are as they don’t fit me so with that I am unable to help. Look-wise they are great and the shapes are pretty classic so hopefully they should suit most face shapes. Playing around with them they feel like a normal pair of frames which is always a good sign! Personally for me I am just not keen on how rigid they feel because I know if my daughter needs glasses I would want to buy her something more flexible which are likely to be more comfortable, but that is just me.
Anyway the best thing to do would be to check them out for yourself so pop into your local Specsavers and take a look.
