I actually just purchased these and am seriously thinking of returning them.
IMO the quality is not what I expected. They feel cheap and flimsy. They also don't stay on the dolls very well. They look cute on my Sonali, but Julie can't wear them because they lay crooked and funny. I am comparing them the the much older metal lilac glasses my daughter has, and they are much lesser quality. I am pretty dissapointed.

I tried a pair on a doll at AGPLA last week. They are cute and look great on a variety of dolls. I do agree that they are flimsy compared to some of the older glasses. Both the chocolate glasses and the two-tone ones were a bit wide on the dolls' faces and fell off easily, and they seem fragile. That said, I bought the two-tone glasses and plan to buy the chocolate ones with my next order. They are really cute, just a little frustrating to get them to look right on the dolls.
My daughter tried on sets of brown glasses on Rebecca last week (because she thinks Rebecca looks like me and I wear glasses to read) but we didn't ultimately buy them because they were far flimsier than I expected. They may be fine for adult collectors but I don't think they're particularly durable for a child.

These glasses are a rich chocolate brown with clear blue plastic on the inner faces. Unfortunately, they are not as sturdy as the rectangle/blue glasses; the plastic is less dense. The arms, however, are slightly longer, which may help with keeping them on the doll's head.
Two tone glasses on left, rectangle glasses in the middle, chocolate glasses on the right.
The chocolate and two-tone glasses seem to be wider. They also have longer arms.
Chocolate Glasses on Josefina mold- on this mold, the bottom of the glasses does not rest easily on the cheeks, so it can be difficult to place them securely without being lopsided.
I got these awhile back and have been too lazy busy to review them yet, but I didn't have any problems with them. In fact, I was relieved because I got the glasses to stay on my custom boy (Molly's wire glasses don't stay on him; they fall off with no long hair to be lodged in). They haven't seemed flimsy to me, but I suppose I should take another look.
Pairs skating? Oh my.
My girls: Remy (#14), Dorinda (#23), Anya (#24), Siobhan (#25), Brook(lyn) (#41), Marisol, Jess, Nicki, Mia, Ami (blue eyed Mia), Gwen, Sonali, Molly, Mark (not a girl! custom #24)
Out of all the glasses, these have to be my favorite. They are very realistic looking, especially due to the blue on the inside. They are a nice, neutral dark brown and therefore look good on any doll and with any outfit. The arms are a little longer than the other glasses that I have. The quality is good enough for collectors; however, I can see these breaking easily around rougher children. Overall grade: A

These glasses are adorable. They are a chocolate brown color with an oval frame. If you look at the glasses with a birds-eye view, they are a turquise blue lining at the top. The only complaint I have about these is that sometimes they go on the doll's face crooked. Once you get them on nicely, they stay on perfectly. The lens is a clear plastic. I have had these glasses since November 2010 and they still haven't broken. They have only gone on crooked about 20 times ( I put them on my doll all the time) and fallen off about 15 times. The grade is A-.
I'm currently on my second pair. The first broke in a result of falling over on the doll's face repeativly. Anyways... I' m kinda iffy about this product. If handled carefully they would be ok,depending on the mold. I use mind most on my #40, and the Jess mold wears it fine. My Josefina doll cannot however. It's horribly crooked. But it looks awesome and realistic. For a collecter its fine, but not for an 8 year old. Check to make sure they fit your doll. Grade: B

I've had these glasses for about six months now, and I love them! Having read some of the reviews before I bought them, I have always been very careful with them. They look good on every face mold that I've tried them on, but my Kailani (#26, Addy mold) has pretty much claimed them as her own. Grade: A
