Building Block Sunglasses

The Nanoblock Sunglasses Feature Miniature LEGO-Like Blocks

— June 20, 2014 — Life-Stages
Nanoblock Sunglasses are both playful and protective. Made for the geek at heart, the sunglasses feature miniature building blocks that look like LEGO. You no longer have to leave your toys behind with these sunnies; they allow you to attach and detach blocks whenever and wherever.

Using the Nanoblocks you can decorate the frames, which essentially mimic classic RayBan Wayfarers. You can add your personal fashion sense by using different colors or even making little LEGO-like people to add to the top of your glasses. They'll diminish any boredom you may have while laying on the beach.

They are also a suitable pair of sunglasses for those looking for a more eccentric style that will make them stand out from any crowd.
