Good Place To Start
Posted by themoneyfamily on May 13, 2009
Just for curiosity sake, I was looking for other baby/infant glasses for Penny. I came across Coolframes.com, which boasts 90,000 frames and Cool Cash. CoolCash is like a gift certificate you receive when you buy frames from them, that you can use on your next purchase. Like some of the frames I looked at were $9-11 CoolCash. When you have a little newbie like Penny in glasses, you just KNOW you’re gonna need more, so the idea of CoolCash is appealing. I think shipping is free (domestic, which sucks for us because we’re Canadian). And they offer 2 year warranty for $29.95 (this doesn’t cover breakage from the looks of it). There is also a 1 year lens warranty, but not on plastic lenses. All in all, I think Coolframes.com might be worth checking out for parents of babies/infants needing glasses.
I just spoke to Donny, a customer service professional for Coolframes.com, and he sent me a list of frames for infants.
Now just to give you an idea, Penny’s frames are 36 mm (lens width) and 115 mm (arm length) and she’s 4 months old and just about 12 lbs. Oh, that’s another thing I like about Coolframes.com. On each product page, you can see the different sizes available with lens width, bridge width and arm length.
I will keep these guys in mind for Penny’s next glasses!
