I have the two tone ones, and I agree with the above posters about them feeling very fragile and flimsy. I love how they look on the doll, but I do kind of have to fiddle with them to get them to stay on/look right.

I bought these glasses at AGPLA for my #33. She looks great in them! The PS told us to carefully check the glasses before purchasing because they've had reports that they can be too wide and fall off the dolls. We settled on the third pair since they seemed to fit better than the first two we tried.
The glasses have a blue frame and a blue tint at the top and a more clear tint on the bottom. I'd give them a A-. The A for looks, and the minus for the wide and somewhat flimsy sides and fragile feel. Drew (#33) is modeling:
My DD has these and while playing with them, one of the lenses popped out. I called AG customer service and they are sending out a replacement pair. They are cute and really seem to suit my DD's Kit. Just wanted to warn you guys about the lense issue - hopefully it won't happen to anyone else.
My daughter's dolls (in storage): Kanani, Natalie (#55), and Rebecca
My dolls: Kit, Felicity (PM), Kaya, and Addy (PM)
I just asked my DD10 and she said the two-toned glasses stayed on fine. She has a #27. They only start to move around when she is fiddling with her doll. If you like, get them. They are really cute. I didn't remember seeing the chocolate glasses. I will go and check them out.
I bought these because they matched my glasses at the time (except mine were red), and Harper is my mini-me.
They do NOT fit her well at all. I think this is an issue with the doll though, not the glasses, because I tried them on some other dolls and didn't have a problem. #23 seems to have some hair glued down on the left or some other wig issue that prevents the glasses from sitting properly. They usually end up jutting out about a quarter of an inch from her face or obviously sideways. It takes a bit of finagling to get them to sit correctly.

I ordered mine online, so I didn't have the opportunity to go through multiple pairs looking for a good "fit." Fortunately they fit just fine!
I had trouble putting them on my doll's face at first. I'm not sure what I was doing, because after 20 minutes or so I "got it" and they've been kind of a snap ever since. I think it is a matter of gently working the "arms" into her hair for stability.
I'm an adult collector and haven't had a quality problem. I'm not sure how they would hold up to active play, but for display purposes I'm quite pleased!

I love these glasses! Like the Chocolate glasses, though, they are fragile and must be handled very carefully so that they won't break. Not exactly ideal for a child, but for an adult, they're fine. They look stunning on my Lily (#37), who has claimed them as her own. Grade: A+
