I don’t think Finding Dory needs an introduction. I am pretty sure most people have heard of it. It is a spin-off from Finding Nemo which was released way back in 2003! So it has been a while but this time, the story is focused on Dory, a blue tang fish who suffers from short-term memory loss. Over the weekend on 23rd July Specsavers invited myself and my little family along to watch the movie before it’s official release at the UK Disney HQ, but why? They were celebrating the launch of their new kids range and yes, you have guessed it. They are launching a Finding Dory kids glasses range exclusively at specsavers.
First of all, I just want to say a massive thank you to Specsavers for inviting us along. My husband was EXTREMELY excited, and my 16-month-old toddler actually sat through for almost ALL of the film, I was so impressed! We had a great day.
So, back to glasses, I love looking at kids glasses, not that mine needs them and not that they fit me, but they are just so cute to look at. Everything to do with babies is just too damn cute.
If your little ones are fans of the film and need to wear glasses, then you need to check out this Finding Dory range. It isn’t a massive collection, in fact, there are only 4 styles to choose from. The colours, as you can imagine, go perfectly with the underwater theme in blue, coral green and lilac. The colours work so well as a collection and each frame, on the arm, has a different scene inspired by the movie.
The styles of the frames are not dissimilar to what you see normally but then again I don’t expect children frames to be really high fashion and have loads of shapes because their face (and just their whole bodies) grow so quick. As parents, it is hard to keep up with the fashion and glasses are no different. With that in mind, the best anatomical fit for their ever developing face has been taken into consideration in the design process. All frames come with flex-hinges and scratch resistant lenses with a UV filter to ensure their eyes are properly protected.
The quality of the frames is good for the price point. They may not be the best of the best in comparison to some adult frames but for children, I never expect it because they will probably just drop them, sit on them and may not take that much care of them. I would be surprised if a frame can last longer than 6 months so with that in mind, why would any parent want to pay ridiculous money to have something like an Italian acetate frame? The quality of the frame is good, and the designs of them are super cute. I particularly like the lilac pair myself, but they would never fit me. Ha!
Finding Dory the movie is out on the 29th July and the glasses range was out on 20th July. So yes, they are in store now at your local Specsavers, priced at £64 and free for under 16’s with an NHS optical voucher. Plus children can also choose an additional free pair of frames in the Specsavers’ kids get two free pairs offer. Go, go and find Dory. Oh, I mean find your favourite Dory frame, hehe.
