I select the glasses and then the Armature and ctrl+P and select bones.

But the glasses are not affected by the animation: enter image description here

What am I missing here?

  • $\begingroup$ force the glasses vg to be assigned to the bone that leads the head movements. Maybe "spine.006" if you're using metarig. $\endgroup$

Instead of parenting to the bone, parent to Armature Deform Modifier With Empty Groups.

Then switch to edit mode, select all the glasses' mesh with A, go to Properties Editor > Mesh Data tab > Vertex Groups panel > select the head bone's group (spine.006 I suppose?) and hit the Assign button.
