Garbage Pail Kids Sunglasses were yet another novelty product released by Imperial Toys during the GPK-boom. These cheap children's sunglasses came in 12 assorted styles. Like most Imperial Toys, the Sunglasses featured a mixture of Series 1 and Series 2 characters. (The Imperial Sell Sheet states 12 variations, however with the number of different characters used, combined with the many different colors - I feel there might be more than 12 total variations out there).

Unlike most of the other Imperial Toy products, the back of the Sunglasses packaging is blank and does not provide any instructions or suggestions for use. On the front however it does state "With Safety Tested Shatter Proof Lenses"...obviously directed towards the parents of collectors in hopes of allowing their kids to buy them.
