You mean the cardboard ones?

Cut out a frame and then use the correct coloured cellophane for the lenses.

If you mean fancy gizmo's that can make games on your puter screen apear all around you then keep in mind that the monitor being used has to run at 100hz for the effect to be usable.

Thanks metla.

Cellophane will do - tried Warehouse, toy shops etc without hitting paydirt.

Kodak have/had an enormous range of colour filters that would handle this with ease, getting them and choosing which of the range to use is the tricky bit. Try a Photographic Wholesaler near you.

Or go buy a copy of Shrek which will give you four pairs.

All glasses (to be useable) are 3D
Type "A" glasses in 2D would not hold any beer.
Type "B" glasses in 2D would not have anything to hook on your ears

Go to your local video store, and hire Spy Kids 3D on DVD. Ask for more than one pair of glasses (my kids got 4) and there ya have it.

Note: The 3d effect on a TV is shocking... they ended up watching the non-3d version DVD that was provided lol.

You should also be able to get them with that Spy Kids 3D movie.
