Last night our family made a trek across town to visit Garvan Woodland Gardens to enjoy their Holiday Lights show. We were especially excited about this visit because I received a new shipment of Holiday Specs 3D Christmas Glasses to test again this year.
If you'll remember, I had the privilege of testing these fun glasses last year, too, so when I got an email from the company asking if I wanted to try out some of their new specs, my immediate answer was "Of course!" But this year, I knew we needed to go bigger. And I'm so glad that we did!
When American Paper Optics sent us kits to test both this year and last year, they hooked us up! We received more than a dozen paper spectacles, in total three pairs of plastic-framed specs (two from this year and one from last year), and even some strings of lights to test them with. Since they were so generous with us, we decided to share that generosity as well. Our family picked out our favorite designs to keep and then we shared the love to kiddos at the gardens as well so that they could enjoy the lights in a whole new way.
Kids "lit up" (punny, no?) as we stopped them to give them a set of spectacles and show them the magical transformation from regular Christmas lights to a string of snowmen or reindeer instead! I'm not sure which was more fun, testing the designs out for ourselves, or seeing the wonder on the little faces as kids experienced it for the first time.
Our littlest one was quite impressed with them, too!
