Local Austin, Texas company Lens Frenz is on Kickstarter with a unique concept to protect kids eyewear. A combination of plush toy and a hard shell eyeglass case, this is sure to be a winner. The story begins with Molly’s child Liam who was stabbed in the eye from a schoolyard bully and from that evolved Lenz Frenz.

They currently have 6 styles ready for production and are awaiting for funding via Kickstarter

It’s a very cute idea and what kid doesn’t want stuffed animals. I could also see this for adults, hide some extra stash, put in a recorder to tape important conversations (just kidding) It is the start of training kids to wear eyeglasses and treat responsibly.
