Blippi Joins with Roshambo Baby to Launch New Line of Glasses
/ By Stacy Brown
We’re ready to shout it from the rooftops that we’re SO EXCITED to be the official kids sunglasses, screen time glasses, and prescription eyewear for Blippi! Roshambo Baby has partnered with Blippi - and the amazing team at Moonbug Entertainment - to custom design our unbreakable frames in Blippi’s signature bright orange color. Now your little ones can dress up like Blippi while protecting their eyes!
If you’re new to the Roshambo Baby brand, safety and quality of our Italian made sunglasses is our #1 concern. Since we initially launched our company as a children’s sunglasses brand, we designed our frames with baby in mind, especially baby’s desire to put them in their mouth! Our sunglasses have been laboratory tested BPA free, lead free, latex free, heavy metal free, among many other nasty things!
We also believe in removing all unnecessary paint in our product as it just winds up in little mouths! We injection dye all of our colors (that is why you will not see designs or tortoise shell pattern on our frames - just solid color). This process locks in all the color into the material so it cannot leach out. We also emboss our logo and the Blippi logo into our molds, so it does not have to be painted on. Our logo is laser etched on our lenses as well. In fact, the only paint on our product is the required "Made in Italy" stamp and product name.
Our company has quickly grown, now with a complete line of sunglasses, screen time glasses, and prescription glasses for baby through adult - including our newest line of licensed Blippi eyewear. All of our glasses are safe, durable, flexible, ultra-light and chewable for babies - a standard for all of our products, including our Blippi glasses!
Carbon Neutral E-Commerce Store & USA Assembled
Beyond the product safety standards we demand, we are also a carbon neutral e-commerce store offsetting all of our shipping from our website orders (CarbonFund.org). Our newly designed Blippi packaging (as well as our standard product packaging) is entirely plastic free and made in the USA. We do our own product assembly in San Diego, California, custom building each pair of Blippi sunglasses to order depending on the polarized lens color - black, blue, chrome, purple, red or green! We are very proud to say our eco-friendly sunglasses are made in Italy and assembled in the USA.
Blippi & Moonbug Entertainment
If you don’t know the YouTube sensation, Blippi is one of the most popular American children’s entertainer and educators on YouTube, Hulu and Amazon Video. Moonbug Entertainment recently acquired Blippi, as well CoComelon Nursery Rhymes, another popular YouTube show. Moonbug is a global entertainment company that creates and distributes inspiring and engaging stories to expand kids’ worlds and minds.
“Blippi is a fun educational YouTube channel mainly doing kid friendly content to help them learn colors, shapes, numbers, letters, alphabet and so much more. Its content consists of nursery rhymes, educational songs and education videos. The channel was created by a guy named Stevin John who started doing the writing, filming, editing and staring at the start. He now has a whole team to help him create the content. He has an estimated 10.45 million YouTube subscribers, with over 7 billion views.” (Medium.com)
“For more than six years, John has used his Blippi character as the canvas for some of the most popular kid-friendly videos on YouTube, and in recent weeks, the Blippi channel has experienced yet another surge in popularity. Over our most recent seven-day measurement period (11/23 -11/30/2020), the home of the orange-and-blue-clad educator has received 71.2 million views, a 5% increase over Blippi’s previous performance.” (tubefilter.com)
The ro•sham•bo shades name: rock, paper, scissors
The name "ro•sham•bo" is a reference to the nostalgic game we all grew up playing... most people know the game as “rock, paper, scissors,” but we grew up calling it ro•sham•bo! It also pays tribute to our autism support mission: special education teachers have told us that playing ro•sham•bo with children with autism can be a valuable teaching tool when they need a quiet, calming, and personal interaction with a teacher. We have autism in our family, so this has been and always will be a pillar of our business.
