A couple of links to check out, and one website that no longer exists…
These links will both be added to our Gear page:
- I just learned of the site Children Wearing Glasses a couple of weeks ago (it was posted on the facebook page, but I can’t find the post again, so I can’t give credit where it’s due – sorry!). Then yesterday, the owner of the site contacted me and gave me a bit more information. It is a Danish site, and she’s tried to collect a huge variety of items for kids in glasses – that includes toys, accessories, glasses cases and more. There’s a lot of cute stuff there. The prices include VAT, if you’re not in the EU, the Danish VAT will be deducted from the price.
- I also learned of product called SPEC-WRAP which is a colorful and protective sleeve for the earpieces and temples of glasses. It lets you change the color of the earpieces of the glasses on a temporary basis. Due to small pieces, they are not recommended for children under five, however.
and this one will be taken off our resources page…
- Babies with glasses (babieswithglasses.org) appears to be gone. This was the site that, had I known it existed back in March of 2008, I might not have started Little Four Eyes. It had quite a few articles and a forum for support targeted at parents of babies in glasses, it also had some cute shirts for kids in glasses. I am not sure when it went away, but I noticed the URL no longer worked last week. This week I noticed that typing in the URL redirects you here to Little Four Eyes. I am flattered that the webmaster did this – we’d never really interacted much, though I posted to the forum on occasion. In any case, a big welcome to anyone who was going to babieswithglasses and finds themselves here! I hope you’ll introduce yourself and stay for a while.
That’s how I found this website, was through babieswithglasses.org.
Do many people in the UK use this group? X x
