My 3rd pair of spectacle frame

I have been wearing spectacles about 1 year and 4 months ago.
I have changed my lens once 4 months back after my power changed.
In 1 year and 4 months, I have changed 2 spectacle frames.
Why??

It wasn't easy to source for toddler spectacle frame. It has to be flexible, lasting and not hurting any part of the face after wearing for long time. Finally we found this fully rubberise frame from Kota Damansara. However, it didn't last long. About 10 months after wearing it, one morning when mommy tried to clean my spectacles, the arm suddenly broken.

She called for replacement and they are good to give me a new replacement with the same colour - pink. Another 10 months passed, one afternoon mommy suddenly saw a crack in the middle of the frame. She knows it will break into two very soon. She called to complain again.

They are kind enough to explain to mommy why it is so easily break. Since this is made of pure rubber, the hot and humid weather here will cause it to oxidize fast and the material will degrade over time. They did not have this problem in overseas but found it here. By the way, this frame is imported from Germany.  Guess it is meant for their country.

They promised for a last replacement and mommy also decided to change the frame for me once I need to redo my lens. Currently, we will have to accept whatever it is given by them. So, now I got a brand new frame with different colour...WHITE.

Daddy think it is nice..even nicer than the pink. Mommy initially think not so nice but after a while, she finds it ok too. So, what do you think?
