RealD is Rolling Out Child-Sized 3D Glasses

The only real question – why didn't they do this sooner?

Kids love 3D movies. There's just no getting around it. And if companies are hoping to start that 3D revolution, kids are the ones to target. After all, anyone growing up with a new technology will be far less likely to want to let it go.

But until now, kids going to check out the latest 3D movies, like last weekend's smash hit 'Toy Story 3,' have had to deal with oversized glasses that make them look like miniature Elton Johns.

RealD saw the problem and adjusted for it, by creating child sized 3D glasses. "The little ones will be able to comfortably enjoy the great summer movies coming out in RealD 3D wearing glasses designed just for them," says RealD's Joseph Peixoto.

Aside from the size, the glasses are the same as the ones for adults. They're also clean, which is a strange thing to point out. Still, Peixoto says that the glasses come "individually packaged in sealed bags ensuring they are clean and fresh for every moviegoer."
