Our frames compliment most face shapes, and come in two widths. Small is designed to fit 3- to 5-year-olds, while large will fit most 5- to 7-year-olds. Our frames also come in three temple arm lengths. The temple arm length is the measurement, in millimeters, from the front of the frame to the tip of the temple along the length of the entire temple arm. You want the the temple arm to be long enough so the glasses don't perch at an angle above the ear. Most young children wear a temple length of 125. Each order includes a copy of our book "Princesses Wear Glasses." Once you receive the frames, take them to your optical provider, who will make sure they fit properly and add your child's prescription lenses.
