My daughter lost all of her sunglasses from last summer so on a trip to Tesco where they had £5 off a £25 spend on clothing I decided to get her a new pair ready for the sunny weather. She wanted Minnie Mouse sunglasses and luckily there were two different designs to choose from, she went for these white oval ones, the others had heart shaped lenses so not really sure why she didn't opt for those!
The sunglasses are available to buy from Tesco stores that sell clothing or online from their website but a delivery charge may apply. The Minnie Mouse sunglasses currently cost £4.50.
The design of these Minnie Mouse sunglasses is quite standard for any normal pair of sunglasses; the arms come off the sides of the lenses and have a curve to rest on the ear. The arms have quite a chunky appearance to them, they are plain white in colour with the word 'Minnie' and a Minnie Mouse face printed on the side, the arms definitely lack any great, stand out detailing. The chunkiness of the arms gets smaller as you reach the part that rests over the ear so they are still comfortable to wear. The lenses have an oval shape and are surrounded by the same white plastic as the arms, however, this has a more busy design to them as Minnie Mouse is printed all over this part. A nice thing about the print is that it isn't the same face printed over and over again, Minnie has a couple of different poses and coloured bows which makes it a little more interesting.
The lenses themselves aren't actually that dark for sunglasses. When my daughter is wearing them, I can still (only just) see her eyes behind the lenses, she hasn't complained of not being able to see anything or where she is going. Once her eyes have adjusted to wearing these she can carry on like usual. Although the lenses are quite light, the sunglasses offer 100% UV protection so you know that there isn't going to be any damage from the sun which is always reassuring.
As far as the size of these goes, my three and a half year old can wear these without any problems of them slipping down her nose or coming away from her face, I wouldn't say they are a snug fit but aren't too big at the same time. I think ideally, the age for these would be between 2 and 7 years old, but that is just my opinion. We also purchased a sunglasses case from Tesco at the same time and these can fit inside it without any problems and there is still room to spare.
At £4.50, these are the most expensive of the sunglasses range in my local Tesco. I would have preferred if my daughter chose a different design as I personally think this one is a little plain but it was upto her so can't really say anything! I would recommend them as they are made to a high quality and protect the eyes from the sun.
