“ Brand: Alfred Franks / Type: Costume „
These sunglasses are quite a dark blue but that doesn't mean they are only for boys and are good for any child who likes the Sportacus character out of Lazy Town. The are supposed to fit children from three years old to seven years old but I don't think that is right and my six year old daughter is just now starting to say that they feel too tight on her head and I noticed the last time that she wore them the skin behind her ears was very red so I do not think she will be able to wear them again. The sunglasses have a small picture of Sportacus on each arm and the Lazy Town logo is on one arm as well as being printed on the plastic inside the glasses.
My daughter has always liked to wear sunglasses and she very much likes these even though the Lazy Town design is now getting a bit too young for her. The arms of the sunglasses are very smooth and the shape is good so that they fit behind her ears and hold the glasses on straight without them tilting to one side or falling off completely like a lot of childrens sunglasses do.
WHAT I THINK
These are very good sunglasses and help to protect the eyes against UV rays, this is good because a lot of childrens sunglasses do not do this. I like the way they are very stable on my daughters face and do not slide off her nose if she puts her head down or is running around playing. They can be worn as normal sunglasses or as part of a costume, but only boys would probably be dressing up as Sportacus so my daughter has not worn them for dressing up and only as sunglasses. She had a Stephanie costume from Lazy Town and I bought her the pink sunglasses to go with that but she has preferred these blue ones from the very start.
I have been shocked at how durable they are because like most children my daughter is not always very careful with her things. There are a few parts on the sunglasses now that have been scratched and one arm has got a little piece of plastic that has chipped off completely and that must have happened when my daughter has dropped them outside. The plastic lenses are dark enough to protect her eyes but are not that dark that she can't see through them even when the sun is not strong enough for her to need to wear sunglasses, the lenses are not scratched at all and that has made me surprised because they are made of quite thin plastic and do not look like they are going to last for long at all. They are easy to keep clean and can just go in the washing up bowl with the rest of the washing up, you have to make sure you rinse all the soap off the lenses though because they get very streaky if you don't.
WHAT MY DAUGHTER THINKS
My daughter has liked these very much every since I bought them for her. I knew she would like them because she has always liked Sportacus and he is a very good role model because he teaches children that fruit is better for them than sweets and candy. She says sometimes that she wishes they were bigger because they are getting too small now and make her ears sore but I am going to look around and see if I can find a bigger pair for her because she likes them so much.
These sunglasses cost £5 when I bought them and I have seen them in a lot of shops that sell Lazy Town toys and dress up costumes.
