Peppa Pig Sunglasses
Advantages: Help protect my daughters eyes
Disadvantages: Little to tell they are Peppa pig
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.
Summary: A nice pair of sun glasses
