For some reason the 8th graders in my school have become obsessed with wearing these old fashioned eyeglasses. Well, maybe pink and lime green frames are not so old fashioned, but still. We ordered these for a school outing, the kids loved them and I was happy with the service we received from this company.

My school put on a production of The Wiz this year. We ordered the kelly green eyeglasses with the clear lens. They were the perfect fit for our theater students. Clear lenses made me feel better about the kids wearing them on stage.

Our school orders sunglasses from Shades of Fun for our summer camp programs. Our camp programs focus on teamwork so we place the children into groups all summer with different colored t-shirts, shorts and sunglasses. Great product and service, we can always rely on this company.

I could not believe the quality of the sunglasses I received from Shades of Fun. I ordered white sunglassses for my bridal shower in Miami. These were perfect. My bridesmaids and I took great pictures and had so much fun. Fast delivery too.

We finally found Shades of Fun as a source for theatrical sunglasses and props. We buy the green glasses for use in the Wiz production. They are well made and cheap but the best part is the clear lens. The actors can see where they are going onstage.

New Year's Eve Party Sunglasses
New Year's Eve glasses have been around since the early 1990's. As the decade of the 1990's began, a couple of entrepreneurs* from the state of Washington goofed around and imagined the double-circles of the decade ahead -- the 1990s -- contained side by side circles. These circles could be fashioned into novelty eyeglasses. If the initial numeral "1" formed the right side edge of the frame and the ending number "1" formed the opposing left edge, the fellows could craft the two "9"s in between to position in front of a person's eyes. The result could splash the four digits of the upcoming year, 1991, across someone's face and form delightfully whimsical eyeglasses that read 1991 as a eyeglass frame.

The very first version of the New Years Glasses were manufactured in the United States and were purchased as a three-part product the customer put together themselves. The front of face part, the one that read "1991" was the main part, there were two side arm pieces which laid flat. They were shipped in a small plastic bag, the parts were all light as a feather and shipped in flat envelopes. They were made of lightweight plastic and were completely glow in the dark. The first intention of the New Year's Glasses was that they would be worn at night -- as the clock headed it way toward midnight on December 31. With this in mind, there were no lenses at all in these early versions. Remember, these early versions were a bit of a lark. The inventors would have loved to have made money, it is the American Way, but they expected little. They imagined the customers for their glow in the dark New Year glasses would be casinos and hotels which offered large scale new year's eve parties and special events.

The early new year's eve glasses caught little attention except locally. The inventors served clients themselves, embossing the eyeglassees with corporate names like Disneyland or Resorts Casino and selling thousands of them year after year. In the late 1990s, a mania developed worldwide over fear and excitement as the calendar headed toward the advancing deadline of the shift into the next century. There was worldwide concern that computers and related equipment would fail or malfunction as their internal clock changed from 12-31-1999 at 11:59.00PM to 01-01-2000 at 12:00.00AM. A year-long rush was on all over the world to bring computer systems and related equipment into compliance with the needs of the coming century. The mania was called, "Y2K Compliance". It was a scam cooked up somewhere. Millions and millions of dollars were spent on new equipment in a mad dash to upgrade before the clock change. The surge was known as "Y2K Compliance". It made millionaires.

Along with the obsession for the turn of the century from the 20th into the 21st Century, those little glowing new year eyeglasses caught the eye of novelty product designers and manufacturers. This savvy industry saw the possibility of the entire decade of the 2000s and pounced on the trends at hand. The market flooded with Asian manufactured sunglasses flashed with the year 2000 as the front plate. The most novelty sunglasses were mass manufactured in factories in Asia and sent out in shipping containers worldwide, but primarily to the USA. Novelty product suppliers like Shades of Fun began to offer them in their retail catalogs.

This little item, the new year glasses, blazed across the population with great enthusiasm for the year 2000. Millions and millions of them were sold. Many had never seen anything like them before and they loved them. Manufacturers were very happy but wondered if the trend would continue into the year 2001. Their fears turned to joy when for the follow-up year, people still loved them and loved them more!

Year after year, the new year sunglasses grew in popularity. Then the year 2009 hit and the naysayers began to flap their doubts again. 2009 was the final year of the go-go decade that featured two zeros side by side. With the onset of the year 2010, the designers of these novelty sunglasses would be challenged to overcome the presence of the digit "1" in their design. The pessimistic view spawned hundreds of news segments and magazine articles worldwide -- all declaring the end of the new year glasses era. Obituaries abounded. RIP they declared.

The doomsday purveyors were all wrong. Wrong wrong wrong. The new year glasses designers successfully transitioned the design to the 2010s with not even a minute's hesitation. Not only is there no end to the popularity of the new year glasses, but mania anew is expected for the year 2020. Why? In ophthalmology, that is the study of the health of the eye, the measurement for perfect vision is 20/20. As the years roll toward 2020, the anticpation grows again for wearing this eternally popular contribution to our culture.
