I am a little glad that it is no longer as hot as it has been, yes I will miss the BBQ's, and days out in the sun with the kids, but there is only so much heat I can take, and I must admit I have had my lot. But saying that I have enjoyed it, and so have my children, and it was this year that I first decided to buy myself some sunglasses.
Once I had bought my sunglasses, two things happened, one is that I felt really cool, probably cooler than I actually am, and the second thing was that my daughter would not leave them alone, so I decided, the best way to stop her messing with mine, would be to buy her a pair of her own, and they will protect her eyes as well. This is when the pink Peppa Pig glasses came into the picture, I saw them whilst doing the weekly shopping and instantly knew that my daughter would love them, so I popped them in the trolly, ready to take home for her.
My three main reasons for buying these sunglasses were one, my daughter still loves Peppa Pig, so I knew she would love the style of these glasses, two, my daughter loves pink, so the colour was perfect, and three, they are sunglasses which have a UV400 rating, any glasses which have UV400 rating are perfect for the protection of children's eyes, from the sunshine.
These glasses have the Peppa Pig logo on the side of them, they are pink, and very girly, but not to grown up at the same time, I think these glasses look great for little girls, and my daughter thinks so as well, because since I bought them for her, she has left my one's alone, which is great for me. Since buying these sunglasses for my daughter she has made good use of them, and really enjoys wearing them, even inside, around the house, I think, she thinks, that she looks cool, which she does, so this purchase was win win for me.
I am hoping we get another summer or two out of these lovely Peppa Pig glasses, the glasses themselves are certainly good quality, and should easily last, but it comes down to whether or not my daughter can keep from breaking them, as she does tend to break a lot of her stuff these days.
These glasses are a product which come highly recommended from me, they have the UV400 protection, and are a perfect style for little girls, especially one's who love Peppa Pig, and for the price of £5, they are great value for your money.
You can get these from good supermarkets such as Tesco and Asda, and I have also seen them in Mothercare, or you can pick them up online, these Peppa Pig sunglasses are a great buy for your little girl.
I was out shopping with my niece when she spotted the Peppa Pig sunglasses while I was looking for sunglasses for myself. She is fan of Peppa Pig and soon as she saw the pink coloured sunglasses she had to have them. Thankfully they only cost £5.00 from Mothercare which I personally think is quite reasonable, so I was happy to buy them for her and plus it looked cute!
== DESIGN & EXPERIENCE==
The sunglasses are coloured pink and are made from hard plastic glossy material, I didn't notice these glasses coming in any other colours which is a shame as my nephew would look cute in some blue ones. There are some nice glossy areas on the plastic that give it a nice shiny look. The sunglasses have small flowers located on top corners of the glasses which are pink and yellow coloured, which give add to the feminine look but also makes it look even cuter and a nice idea compared to just plain looking glasses.
These are designed well for toddlers (up to age of 4) as they are made from thick plastic they are not easy to break. They are also quite lightweight to wear and perfect for those small delicate faces. The only issue is that they tended to slide off now and again, as my niece would by playing in the sun and they would occasionally (not that often) slide off a little, so it would be good if they had a bit more grip or designed it a way that prevent this.
These have great UV protective lenses that are dark coloured to enforce this, which is great as my niece loves to play outside in the garden a lot you don't have to worry about her eyes getting damaged in the UV light.
These are obviously very safe to wear as they are made from plastic, and I also found them easy to wipe clean. I asked my niece if they are comfortable to wear and she says yes, but I think this is reassured by the fact that she loves to wears these a lot in the sun and even when there isn't much sunshine!
== CONCLUSION ==
Overall I would say these are great little sunglasses for toddlers as they are well designed and reasonably cheap and make little angels look even cuter!
As we seemed to have used up 3 of our 10 sunny days a year allowance, I decided it was high time to buy my 3 year old some new sunglasses this year; last years 'I will remove anything you place on my head or face' mood has been replaced by the more traditional older child mentality of 'I don't really care what it is, if it's for me I'll have it'. In a case of practising what I preach, I actually used Dooyoo to check out reviews on a few brands, so all previous reviewers for this item take a bow, as you helped me make the decision to buy them.
Like most girls my daughters age, Peppa Pig and Hello Kitty are the big stars (thankfully Justin Bieber should be long gone by the time she moves on) so we tend to have a lot of things with those brandings on. I decided on the Peppa Pig sunglasses because they look lovely, were nice and cheap, yet functional enough to do what I wanted. I ordered them online, from the George range sold from Asda (their in-house childrens brand, and a good value one it is too), at the ridiculous price of £3; they can't be any good for that price, the 1950's British housewife that lives in my head said...
Well, Gladys was wrong. Arrived promptly, and were actually able to be worn the day they arrived, as day 4 of the 10 sunny day a year allowance hit us that day. A nice shade of 'baby pink', the arms of the glasses have polka dots running down them; the arms are thickest at the lens end, and taper away to their thinnest at the ends. Easy for little hands to hold. 'Peppa' is written on the edge of the left lens, with a love heart just above it. Peppa herself is apparently absent until you notice a little Peppa almost hidden away; they should have made a game of it, like 'Where's Wally?'. She is on there, though, promise.
Obviously with childrens glasses, although we want them to be affordable and look lovely, it is most important to know they protect our children's eyes as well. A removable sticker saying 'UV Protected' puts your mind at rest, as does the darkness of the lenses themselves. Having peered through them myself, they look a lot darker to look AT, than looking THROUGH, which is handy for the notoriously accident prone 3 to 5 year age group. ASDA claim '110% UV protection', though not sure where that extra 10% comes from, and 'protection class 3: dark tint' (wasn't that a Tom Cruise film?). Basically, they're good.
All in all, a great purchase. They look suitably lovely, they fit well on the nose and ears with no pinching, and fit well enough to not be too loose and fall off. My daughter can also put them on and take them off herself, which she is particularly impressed about enough to tell random strangers when we are out.
Its the little things...
I never knew how HUGE Peppa Pig was until my little niece came along, she 2 years old now and Peppa Pig mad!!!! She loves to watch it on the TV and has Peppa Pig EVERYTHING lol. Tops, bottoms, rucksack, water bottle, kitchen, soft toys, slippers, bed. You name it she's got it and if she hasn't she wants it.
We were out shopping in Sainsburys and came across these Peppa Pig sunglasses, they cost £5 and promise UV protection for little ones eyes. They're all pink plastic with Peppa Pig on the sides, the lenses are a sort of tinted rose kind of colour.
I gave them to my niece when I saw her next and she went crazy for them!!! You wouldn't think a kid could get so excited over a pair of sunglasses lol. I got these a while ago, I think she was 17 months so they were a bit too big on her but she loved them. She still has them now and they get packed up in her Minni Mouse rucksack along with her sun hat and cream on sunny days out and about.
Although plastic they're a little flexible and have lasted with Lexy taking them on and off and throwing them about. Great little sunglasses for a Peppa Pig fan, recommended for girls though because they're all pink.
Next Peppa Pig takes over the world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Peppa Pig is an extremely popular television show currently being shown on Channel 5 that has spawned a whole host of merchandising in its wake. There is even a Peppa Pig World located at the Paultons Park Theme Park! So it should come as no surprise that you can even now buy sunglasses inspired by the characters on the show.
These sunglasses are surprisingly well made for something that is essentially just a way of squeezing more money out of the show. The frames are made of a light plastic that is fairly flexible and will take a little bit of abuse which is handy as we all know how rough and careless children can be with their stuff at times and pink in colour meaning they are probably best suited for a girl.
Though the lenses on this illustration are dark, the ones bought from our local Asda are pink to match the frame giving everything a rose-coloured tint. That said, they are still tinted dark enough to block out the suns harsh glare and provide UV protection to your childs eyes!
My daughter loves these and always insists on wearing hers even when there is only a little bit of sun. I am not sure how much they cost as they were a gift from her Nanny but a previous reviewer has mentined them being around the £7 mark and that sounds about right.
Other similar inspired sunglasses based on this and other popular television characters are available from all of the big three supermarkets and all are a similar price. These though were always going to be my daughters favourites because she absolutely loves Peppa Pig!
WHAT ARE THEY?
George branded Peppa Pig sunglasses available from Asda and online.
WHO ARE THEY FOR?
Children, more specifically little girls, aged under six years.
ARE THEY ANY GOOD?
My youngest daughter had these sunglasses last April and they have lasted until now (15 months) without breaking or the dark lenses being scratched or dented. They have only a light tint, just enough to shield your childs eyes from the bright sunshine but probably not enough to prevent all of the harmful rays from reaching their eyes.
The frame is made of thick pink plastic and decorated with tiny red polka dots, the eye pieces are quite large and this helps shield a larger area of my daughters face and helps the design to be ontrend with the oversized styling that is clear on the majority of womens sunglasses. The arms are hooked to sit comfortably and securely on my daughters face, they don't slip down her nose even when her skin is sweaty and the nose section doesn't irritate her either even if she is wearing them for a long period of time.
I clean the Peppa Pig sunglasses with a wet cloth regularly because the pink plastic gets dirty quickly and shows up grubby fingermarks, the plastic hasn't scratched or scuffed though so it remains as surface dirt instead of becoming ingrained in the plastic.
The sunglasses I have reviewed are available only from George at Asda,but there are many Peppa Pig sunglasses if you shop in other stores and I think all the four major supermarkets would stock something very similar. I cannot remember the exact price I paid for them but I think it was in the region of £7, I remember thinking they were expensive for a pair of children's sunglasses but now I think they were a bargain as they've lasted for such along time.
5 Dooyoo Stars.
Only having boys, I am always wowed by anything pink and girly. I am lucky enough to have 4 nieces. Two of which are 6 year old . I was shopping in Asda 'George' for my little boy some Thomas Sunglasses when I saw these. Perfect!
The plastic frame have a wide frame to really keep to the summer trend. A lovely blush pink with the arms decorated with pale pink polka dots and the name 'Peppa' inscribed on the end, with a perfect little heart. The arms were quite stiff and the glasses as a whole did seem quite durable - I did not expect them to shatter if dropped on to the playground.
The lenses are a dark tint and again have 'Peppa' endorsed on them.
I always worry about the damage that the sun could do and even more so for my children (and nieces) so I was quite sure I checked the UV protection of the lenses in these glasses. They claim 110% UV Protection with 8 -18% transmission. Okay, so I am not entirely clear what that means but they were certified EN 1836. And I assumed over 100% must be the best? They are not specified as scratch resistant but hey, for £4 I took the chance!
So - what did my nieces think of their sunglasses? - They snatched them off me and screamed VERY loudly! They both paraded around in them showing me how beautiful and cool they looked. For one of my nieces the glasses fit perfectly and she kept them on all day but my other niece claimed that the glasses hurt her head and the backs of her ears. 50% success rate is not too bad I guess!
I was the best Aunty ever for that short while - and had gorgeous nieces for only a few pounds spent!
With the nice weather we had a few weeks back I went to asda to purchase some summer clothes for my children as they had a growth spurt and they needed an updated wardrobe. In the clothes section there was a display case of children's sunglasses including cars and peppa pig at £4 each we picked up a pair for each of my children and being Peppa pig mad there was no doubt what she was going to choose.
How do they look?
The sunglasses are a lovely baby pink in colour and are nice and bright meaning little one is interested in them straight away. They are rather plain on the arms of the sunglasses are small polka dots and on the right lenses there is a small picture of peppa pig this is clear enough to see when up close but small enough not to obstruct little ones vision while the sunglasses are on. Also on the right side arm of the glasses again is a small peppa pig stamp again not too large that it takes up the whole look of the glasses but certainly big enough for a child to spot their favourite character. To be honest there is not much to tell they are peppa pig and as the little picture of peppa is so small unless you look closely you would not think they were a character product.
They look fairly well made which is needed when being used on young children and the plastic pink appearance you can see straight away they are intended for little girls. The overall appearance is very girly a little plastic but as they are for young children my daughter does not mind this at all and even though the Peppa pig marking is only tiny she still loves the fact there is a peppa pig stamp at all.
My little girl is three and a half years old and these sun glasses fit her very well they sit on her head without falling off or needing readjusted but looking at her they look rather large for her face. There is definitely room for her to grow into them and I think they would maybe suit a child up to five or six years old.
They open up very easily and close back down again slowly meaning my daughter can use them independently without me having to worrying about them pinching her skin and she loves that she can get herself ready to go and play in the garden. I was a little worried as the lenses look really dark but actually my daughter can see easily from them and makes her way around without any problem so they are fit for purpose.
They have uv protection and this means that they help protect m little girls eyes wile out in the sun but unlike sun cream I d not have to force her to have them put on meaning that I only have 1 struggle before going out in the sun. She loves that she can wear sunglasses and be grown up and the added protection they provide please mummy so it is win win.
The glasses are rather durable they have lasted for around three months now and this has been with my daughter trying to wear the sun glasses even if she is indoors or if it is pouring with rain she still insists on wearing them. The glasses look rather bulky but they are nice and light and sit well on my daughters face without irritating her and they do not slip even while she is playing.
I would recommend these glasses to any little girl even if they are not a peppa pig fan the colour of the glasses and the overall design really appealed to my daughter. Although I have no way of confirming what I like about these sun glasses is although they have the novelty factor for young children they are not toy sunglasses and do help protect their eyes from the sun.
They have lasted well and although there is no age recommendation provided with these glasses in case the glasses break and due to the size of the glasses I would think they are suitable from around three plus. There are other characters available to appeal to your child if they are not a peppa pig fan and anything that encourages a child to protect themselves from the sun is a winner for me especially at just £4.
We have just come back from a week in Lanzarote and it was very sunny - so I'm glad I bought my daughter these Peppa Pig sunglasses!
**Price and Availability**
The Peppa Pig sunglasses are available on the high street in well known retailers such as Asda (where I bought them), Mothercare, Tesco and Marks and Spencers, and online retailers (where a P&P charge will usually apply).
I paid £5 however I have seen them at £6, which is not a bad price considering they are a UV protective item and they are branded, too.
Any sunglasses with a UV400 rating (as these glasses have) are excellent protection for little eyes in bright sunshine. I can't manage without my sunglasses, and I wanted my daughter to understand that they are a crucial bit of holiday kit - the last thing I want is her to damage her eyesight especially at such a young age (she is one).
The Peppa Pig sunglasses come with minimal packaging, just with their arms looped through a card, and the glasses themselves are pink and a bit spotty / sparkly with the Peppa Pig logo to one side. My daughter is only just getting into Peppa Pig and I must admit I bought them more for the sparkly pinkness and the fact I needed to get her a pair than particularly for the Peppa Pig connection but I know that these will last her and that's the main thing.
I think these look great for a little girl - girly, interesting, and not too grown up looking.
I think they might be ever so slightly too big for my daughter, but they do fit, and once they're on they look great. The challenge is getting them to stay on, my daughter won't tolerate hairbands, accessories, shoes, socks, anything, so keeping these on her face for more than ten seconds is quite difficult, especially given that they obviously change (darken) what she's looking at. So really I think these are probably better for a bigger child, but it's always worth trying to get them used to sunglasses at an early age.
They are good in the least at this age to put on when she is swimming and the glare of the sun is on the water, because she is so busy splashing and she doesn't like squinting she can tolerate the glasses better for a short amount of time. And when she is asleep in her pushchair even though I have the parasol up I also put the sunglasses over her eyes as an extra layer of protection.
If you're looking for a pair of sunglasses that will last and that will appeal to a little girl, then I highly recommend the Peppa Pig sunglasses. For around a fiver you can't go wrong. They have the UV400 protection that you need as a parent to reassure you and they also have the branding and looks to appeal to your little girl.
It might take my little one a bit more time to get used to them but there's growing room in them so it's not a problem. I highly recommend the Peppa Pig sunglasses, they're easy to get hold of, too, and I'll give them five out of five stars.
As Lauren has got a older, I have found that the baby bands she used to wear are too small and we have had to invest in some 'big girls' sunglasses. She loves Peppa Pig so when I spotted these at , I thought they were ideal.
The glasses are very 'girly' looking; they are pale pink with darker pink spots, on one arm there is a little picture of Peppa and the Peppa logo on the other.
The lenses are rectangular in shape and quite wide ensuring that they cover the whole eye area, the lenses are also quite dark and offer protection from UVA rays. The arms are quite chunky too and fit nicely over Laurens ears. She has never once complained they hurt (by being too tight) and she doesnt seem to squint when she is wearing them. The glasses are recommended for 3-6 years and cost me just under £5 from Debenhams. There are lots of different variations of Peppa Pig sunglasses available (prices start for 99p) but I would definitely recommend spending that little bit more to ensure your little ones eyes are fully protected.
We have had these glasses for a couple of years now and they have had loads of wear, even when it is not sunny as Lauren like to now put them on the top of her head (like mummy does!)
Overall, I would recommend these glasses and give 5 out of 5 stars.
Thanks for reading.
Thanks for reading.
My grandchildren adore Peppa Pig who is a lovely little cartoon character. They have various Peppa Pig items including DVDs, books and even a bike! These sunglasses have been put to good use in the recent hot weather!
They are made from plastic and have pictures of Peppa pig on the arms of them. Unlike some sun glasses the arms are quite thick which makes them very child friendly as it means they are more robust. However, having said this they will still break if they are handled too roughly!
The lenses are quite wide and long which means that they help to protect children's eyes from sun rays so as well as being appealing because of being Peppa Pig they are also appealing because they are safe and help to protect eyes.
These are quite large- my 3 year old granddaughter only just fits them, I would say they are more appropriate for from 4 years as this will be a better fit which is a bit of a shame as Peppa Pig I think appeals to pre-school children.
My grandchildren love wearing these, the fact that Peppa Pig is on them encourages them to wear them in the sunshine and they think they're great fun.
I bought them from Asda for £3 which I think is very good value for money.
My son loves Peppa Pig (as do most toddlers it seems!) but I really didn't think he would have picked out these sunglasses on account of the fact that they are pink and girly. However, he did pick them out while we were in Mothercare and so I didn't think it was right to deny him them on account of the fact that they were pink.......if he's comfortable then I'm more than happy for him to embrace his feminine side! The Peppa Pig sunglasses cost me £6.00 direct from Mothercare - which I think is a decent enough price although I think they could be a little cheaper.
As I said, the Peppa Pig sunglasses are pink with sparkly bits in the plastic. They have little pink and yellow flowers in the top corners of the frames. They do look cute - and they do look girly - and so I'm surprised that they don't come in other colours, but I've only seen this one colour. They are made from plastic and they are quite chunky, although they are also lightweight and so they are perfectly suitable for a toddler to wear. They are quite sturdy and so not particularly difficult for a toddler to break, although I'm sure they could if they really put their mind to it! They do slightly curve in around the ears, but I think they would be designed a little better if they curved in a little more around the ears so that they didn't slip off so easily when they are engaged in a little bit of rough and tumble play. Because they are plastic, they can be cleaned when sticky fingers get all over them.
The lenses are dark and have strong UV filters in them to protect the eyes. Certainly, my son does ask for them when he's out playing in bright sunshine (and sometimes when he's not) and so they must be comfortable to wear and also make his eyes more comfortable when playing in the right sunlight.
They are cute and I think it will be a welcome addition for any Peppa Pig fan. I think they would fit children up to about the ages of 5 years old or so.
Anyone who knows me will know how much I hate Peppa Pig! Everything about it rubs me up the wrong way and so I was a little horrified when my mum came home from shopping one day with a pair of Peppa Pig sunglasses for my daughter. Why she bought them when my daughter already has a pair of Minnie Mouse and Hello Kitty ones I do not know but as they were new she took to wearing them all the time, even round the house!
The Peppa Pig sunglasses come with minimal packaging as they are set on a thin strip of cardboard which features the familiar Peppa Pig detail. In order to remove the packaging you will need some scissors as they are fastened on with one of those thin plastic ties which are very hard to break with just your fingers! On one of the lenses you will find a small sticker which states the sunglasses are UV protected which gives you peace of mind knowing that your little ones eyes are going to be protected. Removing this sticker is very easy and it peels off leaving no residue.
The sunglasses are typically little girl sunglasses, predominantly pale pink in colour with deeper pink spots covering the arms. The glasses are quite chunky and of a rectangular shape rather than circular which makes sure the eyes are covered very well. On one arm there is a small picture of Peppa Pig and on the opposite arm the Peppa logo is written in a blue font. The arms are quite wide in comparison to some of the other childrens sunglasses I have seen but my daughter did find this a little irritating and seems to prefer a thinner version. The lenses are really quite dark which again means they are giving good protection from the sun but they aren't too dark in my opinion.
My daughter decided to take these sunglasses with us on our mini break last week (much to my dismay!) and there was plenty of sun so she wore them all the time we were in the car and walking outside and not once did she complain the sun was affecting her eyes so I knew that she was well protected by these glasses. The fit of the glasses was very good, and comfortable (apart from the arms bugging her a little) but this shows they are suitable for a good age range as my daughters friend who is two "borrowed" them a few times and they fit her well too.
The sunglasses do seem well made and are quite a tough plastic however my daughter (like any other child) just dropped them on the floor after taking them off and her grandad stood on them and broke them! I didn't replace them, not just down to the fact they are Peppa Pig but my daughter prefers the thinner arms so she is now back to her Minnie Mouse ones!
You can find the Peppa Pig sunglasses at Asda for £4.00 and I think that is a standard price for branded childrens sunglasses and I would say for the protection they provide that is reasonable value. I would recommend the Peppa Pig sunglasses for any little Peppa fan, they protect well and little girls will love them!
Thank you for reading my review.
I've been buying bits and pieces for our upcoming holiday for months now, I knew my daughter would love a pair of sunglasses and when I spotted these Peppa Pig ones in Asda I knew they would be perfect for my Peppa Pig mad 2 year old.
The glasses come packaged hanging from a strip of cardboard, this cardboard has the usual Peppa Pig branding. To get the sunglasses off of the cardboard you simply need to give the plastic tie a snip. The sunglasses also have the small sticker on one lens that says they are UV protected, this sticker is easy to just pull off without leaving any marks on the lens beneath.
My local Asda have quite a big selection of childrens sunglasses, these Peppa Pig ones cost £4 but they also sell unbranded sunglasses for just £3. They can be found with childrens accessories, or also online at asda.co.uk.
The design of the glasses is nice and girly. They are coloured in a nice, almost, baby pink colour with polka dots in a darker shade of pink running down both arms of the sunglasses. These arms have a chunky design, with them tailing off from the lenses at the same size and gradually getting thinner nearer to the end. On one corner of the sunglasses 'Peppa' is written in blue and on the other corner is a picture of Peppa pig herself.
The actual lenses of the sunglasses are quite dark so that you know you are getting a good protection from the sun and it's rays. However, it isn't so dark that young children find it hard to see out of them. I believe my daughter can see everything just as well as when she hasn't got any sunglasses on once her eyes have adjusted. When shes wearing them she doesn't have any problems falling over things etc.
My daughter can put these sunglasses on herself, sometimes upside down but she gets there. They fit nicely on her nose and cover her eyes well when they are on the right way round. The arms fit snugly against her head and she has never experienced them rubbing or being too tight that they make any marks on her head.
I'd definitely recommend these Peppa Pig sunglasses, they have a reasonable price, have a cute design, fit snugly on my 2 year olds head and protect her eyes from the sun. There is nothing me or my daughter don't like about these sunglasses!
