Note: We understand that different families make different choices about how much of their children’s lives to share online.  Please do not do anything that makes you uncomfortable about your limits to your child’s privacy.  You do not need to ever post your child’s name or photo to participate in these activities.  If you are comfortable doing that, that’s quite all right, too!

  10. I posted my video to your facebook page, but I’m super curious about the picture you have on this page of the American Girl doll with pink glasses…. if the owner of that picture sees this, can you tell me where the glasses are from on the doll? I can’t find them on the American Girl site and they look just like my daughter’s!! Thanks, Ann Devereux, annmkt55@yahoo.com

    • Hi Ann! Thanks for the wonderful video! I’ll see if I can track her down and ask where the glasses are from. I know I’ve seen glasses for 18″ dolls at craft shops like Michaels.

  11. Hi! Any idea if pics from the 2013 MN Great Glasses Playday might get added to the homepage of this site? I would love to be able to show my fam and friends pics of how much fun the kids had! :)
