I'm reviewing the Hello Kitty sunglasses from George at Asda.
They cost a reasonable £4.
The frames are made from white plastic and have the Hello Kitty logo on the arms of them and the words "Hello Kitty " on one lens.
The frames themselves are solid and not flimsy .
The Lenses are nice and dark and are claimed to provide 110% UV protection.
***USING and MY OPINION***
Holly is 3 and as girly as it is possible to be and loves to have "The Look" ,so once the sun made it's first appearance for longer than half an hour Holly was planning her wardrobe, and sunglasses were on the list of 'must-haves'. She has Peppa Pig ones from last year, but with Hello Kitty being one of her present obsessions she was delighted when her nanna bought her these sunglasses.
There were bright pink spotty ones on sale besides these white ones apparently, but surprisingly Holly opted for the plainer white ones.
They are actually quite good value, because they are solidly made and seem well designed for little heads. They fit from 1 yr old to 3 yr old and sit comfortably on Holly's 3 yr old head, but in all honesty I can't see these fitting a one year old very well, even if a baby that age was prepared to keep them on. The arms curve more sideways into the head rather than down behind the ears, so they rest ON the ears rather than around them.
The lenses look very dark but having looked through them they are not that dark in reality, just sufficient to obliterate the sun's glare comfortably.
The strong UV filter in the lenses is comforting to have, but 110% is a tad (10% to be precise) over the top in describing it. 100% would cover it nicely,so why exaggerate the figures ? (sorry, pet hate of mine).
The construction seems really sturdy and in the three weeks since buying they've been put through their paces. Holly might be girly but she enjoys rough and tumble with her little brother and the glasses have been dropped ,kicked out of the way and tossed around numerous times and are still looking fine. They were a bit stiff in the hinge area when first bought, but a tiny drop of my sewing machine oil worked into each hinge loosened them up just fine.
No scratches on the lenses as yet , but when being put in her backpack they get stored in a vinyl glasses case hubby gave her for them anyway.
Actually,for another £1 they could have provided a little soft vinyl case for them.
I must say the first morning Holly came strolling in with these on I burst out laughing and christened her Jackie O , in tribute to Jackie Kennedy/Onassis who was famed for this style of sun glasses. Holly doesn't care,she thinks she looks fabulous and pointed out to me that she chose these instead of the pink ones because " they will go with anything"............so young and yet so fashion conscious.
So ,in conclusion these are sturdy trendy little sun glasses that provide excellent protection for little eyes, look cute and won't break the bank at £4. Buy with confidence.

My little girl has never liked having the sun in her eyes. When she was a tiny baby she used to scream if she was in the sun and so having a pair of sunglasses is really important to her. We have had a variety of different sunglasses throughout her 4 years of life and her all time favourites have been these Hello Kitty sunglasses which we bought from Tesco for £4 about a year ago now.
=== Buying them ===
We didn't go to Tesco specifically for sunglasses but whilst we were shopping my little girl saw them on a stand and pointed them out. I let her try them on and because they have Hello Kitty on them she was more pleased with these than ever! She did try on a few other pairs but these were the ones she said she preferred and actually they were a better fit and looked more comfortable so I bought them for her.
=== Style ===
These are quite big sunglasses for a little face. They are white plastic and have Hello Kitty on the sides of them. The bridge of the glasses is curved nicely and is smooth so that it fits comfortably on her nose. Some of the other glasses she tried on fell down a bit but the shape of these make them very comfortable a fit. The lenses are wide so that they cover a lot of the eyes and this is ideal for children especialy those who are not used to wearing glasses it gives them better sight.
=== Our opinion ===
Well my little girl adores them. She has got pink sparkly sunglasses and some Peppa Pig ones but these ones are by far her favourites and I think it might be because they are so comfortable. When I first looked at them I thought they were too big but it's actually the lenses that are big compared to others but the actual width of the frames themselves are not much different to her others. The bigger lenses make it easier for her to see as the rims and arms don't come into her field of vision. When Little B wears these she thinks she looks great and she's really happy because she doesn't have to worry about the sun being in her eyes. I like that she's very fond of these as it's nice to have her wear something which isn't bright pink or full of a brand. I know it is Hello Kitty but it's only very small on the sides so not too much. I think they are really good, they fit her well and help to keep the sun out of her eyes so we really cannot complain about them at all. They were not the cheapest, we tried on ones at half the price but they were certainly the best fit and for under £5 I think it's fine.
I bought my youngest daughter a pair of Hello Sunglasses because she loves Hello Kitty and she has T-shirts, bags, pencil cases, badges etc that attests to this fact! I know there are many Hello Kitty sunglasses to choose from, but the ones I bought were made by George at Asda - and therefore it was within a decent price range. The glasses cost me just £4.00 direct from Asda Direct (www.direct.asda.com) and I thought this was a very good price, especially when compared to Hello Kitty glasses from other sources.
The frames of the sunglasses are white and made from a plastic. The frames are bare white except for a cute little Hello Kitty design on the proximal part of the arm. This little Hello Kitty design is typical for this brand and it is well printed. The frames feel robust and that they wouldn't be easily bent, although the actual attachment of the arms to the lens frames also feels like they are well secured and that they will not be prone to snapping or falling apart. The arms are somewhat contoured to fit the side of the head well - and they do seem to fit well without any discomfort. I would prefer it if the were contoured to curve around the ears - and my daughter does find they slip off occasionally because of this - but not having these contours is not a deal breaker.
The lenses are a dark grey and so they are well tinted and do protect the eyes from the sunlight. In terms of design, the left lens has Hello Kitty written in white lettering in the far left hand upper corner of the lens, but this does not get into the field of vision at all and so it is not annoying. The lenses protect the eyes completely against UV rays, and because the glasses have fairly thick frames that bend around the eyes, there is no stray light able to sneak in. However, one of the lenses does now have a scratch on them and so they are not scratch - proof and so for little kids this may be an issue.
My daughter seems to enjoy wearing these, and as soon as there isn an excuse to put them on, then on they go. Unfortunately they do not come in a case or bag to protect them, but I do know you can buy Hello Kitty glasses case if you so wish.
Before now I have never bought sunglasses for my daughter - what with this great British weather and all, I have never felt the need to - my summer shop usually consists of a new pair of wellington boots, not sunglasses. Early last month however we were preparing to go abroad on holiday which would have been my daughters first time and the realisation of all of the things I would have to buy soon hit me.
Among many of things sunglasses were high up on the to-buy list and without having to go far out of my way I found these Hello Kitty sunglasses on one of my regular trips to asda. The sunglasses are very basic and white in colour, which although plain, is very versatile and can be worn with every outfit therefore avoiding having to buy more than one pair.
The frame is rather large and chunky and the glasses have a dark tint which also has 100% UV protection which makes these glasses rather perfect for in very sunny conditions. I felt totally satisfied buying them and was happy in the knowledge that these would be very beneficial when abroad.
The description of these glasses state that they are hello kitty and although this is not entirely obvious, they do have a rather small but lovely picture of hello kitty on each side and a small hello kitty logo on one of the glasses. This however is perfectly enough decoration; I prefer the glasses to be plain, any more decoration could run the risk of making the glasses look tatty.
The glasses come in one size only however there isn't really any indication as to who this one size will fit. I found they were a comfy fit on my 4 year old however and they seem to have enough give in them to last her another couple of years. As previously mentioned, I have never had to buy sunglasses for my daughter before so I was worried that she wouldn't want to keep them on. There was absolutely no need for me to worry however as she absolutely loved them and she had no issues keeping them on, if anything she found it quite exciting to put them on.
The only real issue my daughter had with them is that they reduced her visibility because of the partial tint, she would often take them off to have a drink or to enjoy an ice cream as she complained that she couldn't see. Obviously a slight overreaction as she wore them any other time. This is however just a small issue considering they protect her eyes it's worth the slight inconvenience, having said that most sunglasses are tinted so they would all have the same effect regardless.
All in all I have found these to be a great pair of sunglasses, they are very durable, they have been dropped countless times and have also been fully submerged in the pool and they still live to tell the tale. They are available from George at ASDA for a very respectable £4.00 which is well worth it in my opinion. I would highly recommend these glasses, they are cute, cheap and moreover they protect little eyes from UV rays.
WHAT IS IT?
A pair of child size sunglasses. They are white in colour and each arm features a diamanté motif of Hello Kitty's head. I bought mine in Asda but my friend has a pair for her daughter that are identical but purchased in H&M.
ARE THEY ANY GOOD?
The important factor is that they filter out 100% of UV rays, this means they are a darker tint than other children's sunglasses so are only suitable on very sunny days. My daughter wore hers inside first and they were so dark she ended up tripping, when she wore them to the park the very bright sunshine helped her to see properly through them.
The arms are thick and smooth so they are comfortable on my daughters ears and nose. The nose gap is very wide so the sunglasses fit low down on my daughters face, the large lenses mean her eyes are fully covered and even if they slip down her nose her eyes are still in the shade.
WHAT DOES MY DAUGHTER THINK?
She has grown up wearing sunglasses so is used to wearing them, she has always worn these in a way that I can tell she's comfortable. She loves the Hello Kitty design but the white doesn't suit her as she's a very clean child and the frames of these show up finger marks and dirt, I would have liked to get them in pink for her but that wasn't available. She would also like less dark lenses as she's almost blinded when she comes inside while still wearing them, I agree but the important UV protection means they need to be dark.
5 Dooyoo Stars.
With all the sunny weather we had recently, (I know, it's gone now) I decided it was probably about time that I got my little girl some sunglasses. I know how I feel when I go outside and hit the sun, my eyes need to squint and definitely need shielding from the sun and so the same is probably true for her too and it must be more comfortable now that she has a pair to shield her eyes.
She's two and a half now and is at the stage where she will keep a sun hat on her head so I was fairly confident before I bought these that she would probably keep these glasses on her face.
My little girl is a big Hello Kitty fan so when I saw these glasses in Debenhams I just had to get them. What I like about them is that although they are patterned they are not too over the top. Often I find sunglasses for little kids are very over the top and too showy and sparkly. My little girl is stylish but not always decked out in over the top pink so I wanted something quite cool and stylish for her to wear.
These sunglasses are white and have plain white arms on them. On the portion that shields your eyes there are lots of little red hearts. This is quite a cute, classic look in my opinion. On the side of each lens by the temple there is a little Hello Kitty face motif. This is plastic and is attached onto the glasses so it sticks out a little bit but does not block the eyes in any way.
What was really most important to me was whether these glasses would protect her eyes or that they were just more of a fashion item. Thankfully the glasses offer 100% UV protection and category 3 filter capabilities so I feel safe that my daughters eyes are being protected.
The glasses have curves on the arms so they hook over the ears. At the moment they are a bit too big for my little girl as she keeps on having to push them back onto the bridge of her nose and Debenhams do say that these are for kids aged 3 plus so at least my little girl has some time to grow into them.
She keeps on wearing them and sticks her thumb up and says, "Cool Mummy," so they are a big hit with her and at just £6.50 they are a big hit with me too.
This is a review of the white Hello Kitty sunglasses I bought for my daughter recently, to combat the sunny days we were experiencing. My daughter is terrible for keeping anything on her head, be it a hair clip, hat or headband so I wasn't sure how she would take to the sunglasses.
The glasses are white with dark lenses and feature a small Hello Kitty picture on the arm of the glasses. The label suggested they were suitable for 1-3 year olds but they are a little large for my daughter's face and she struggles to keep them on her nose.
My daughter loves playing with the sunglasses and will wear them for short periods of time. She has a HK baseball cap and likes to look at herself in the mirror wearing the sunglasses and the cap together! I am a little nervous when she is playing with them that she will break them but so far they have survived.
I paid £4 for the sunglasses which I thought was an OK price for the Sanrio branded glasses. We love Hello Kitty in our house so she can command a slightly higher price than we'd usually pay for clothes and accessories!
These sunglasses are really well made and as structurally sound as an adult's pair. I like the fact that they are a bit oversize as they give complete coverage and the black lenses are really effective in blocking out the sun. At the moment they are more of a toy than an accessory but I hope they will survive a few years and we should really start to get some use out of them then.
On the George / Asda website, the spec claims the glasses have an impressive 110% UV protection which I am not sure how you can ever score over 100% in anything but it convinces me they are the real thing and not a toy pair.
The glasses are great value for money and my daughter is fond of them. Whether she will get to wear them in the sun this Summer will be up to the British weather but I am hopeful! I only wish they did these in adult sizes as they are really cute and I quite fancy a pair of them myself!
