RealD 3D Kids Sized Glasses in Theatres now

Those of you have attempted to go to 3D movies, only to find that the glasses are giant and don't stay on your child's head, fear no more.  Since the release of Toy Story 3 in 3D,  RealD has released glasses in a smaller kid-friendly size.  Hopefully your theatre takes the hint and stocks them!  The glasses are aimed for kids ages 8 and under.  They are meant to be worn over any prescription eyewear, however the fit may be precarious when layering them.   

Parent tip: you may still want to bring an eyeglass retainer strap to the hold the glasses on your child's face and prevent them from slipping. For children who refuse to keep the glasses on during the movie, opting to see the movie in 2D format may be a less frustrating (and more affordable) option (but without the fancy 3D effects). Many children, especially those with amblyopia,  will continue to struggle to see the 3D effects- kids-sized 3D glasses or not.
