Uck. Got these, despite hoping for the metal version. Here's my review.
I have mixed feelings about these glasses; The frames are indeed plastic and they are rather chunky looking; just like the "Brown Oval Glasses" and I think they're just a bad shape. I wouldn't mind if they were the same shape as the rectangle or the blue glasses, but the oval shape combined with the shiny purple plastic does not make glasses that appeal to me very much.
HOWEVER, they don't look that bad on Molly here..
I apologize for the glare; It was nighttime so of course I was indoors and I NEED the flash; Someday I'll have a small multi-lamp set up. I just want something I don't have to take up and down.
Just the glasses:
All this said.. they don't look *that* bad but gosh, they feel so cheap. All the AG plastic glasses do, when you compare them to the original metal. I realize plastic is going to be lighter and flimsier but DANG! The hinges aren't as "firm" as the metal ones either. I feel they are rather flimsy-feeling compared to other glasses; I feel like with the rectangle ones if I am not SUUUUPER careful, the leg will snap off and I'll be out of luck.
It's just disappointing.
Edited to add: They look considerably dumber on the doll if her hair is up and she has no bangs; I will add photos of Mia wearing these later when I get them off my camera.
