Peppa Pig Sunglasses
Advantages: Look good, UV Protection
Disadvantages: Getting them to stay on!!
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.
Summary: Worth it for holidays especially
