COLORS (at its best) IN OPTICS
Crayola as a brand in children’s eyewear teamed with Colors in Optics. How perfect is that?! Even the colors match the Crayola palette as do the color names. This 20/20 cover is a perfect matchup for sure.

Strong Sense of Self
The days of generic, interchangeable unisex styling are total ancient history. Boys and girls want frames that make striking statements about every aspect of a child’s personality and identity. These frames proudly clarion that pride of eyewear ownership for both him and her.
