A fairy tale launch at Optrafair

Unicorns with a mission to protect children’s eyewear

Optipets children's spectacles holders

Optipets is launching a new range of children’s spectacles holders. The set of three brightly coloured unicorns will be launched at Optrafair (1–3 April, Birmingham NEC).

Explaining the launch, Optipets managing director, Alan Kasmir, told OT: “The children’s lines of spectacles holders continue to be very popular and we are always looking to keep the ranges fresh and innovative.”

Mr Kasmir added: “The message that we give to practitioners for the children’s ranges continues to resonate well – that the child choses their favourite animal and gives it a name. They put the animal on their bedside table and the animal wears the glasses at night and the child wears them during the day. They share them so they don't get scratched, lost or damaged.”

The unicorns are £12 per set of three. For more information, visit the company’s website or telephone 0798 492 3383.
