It has been fun getting your kids gear questions this winter so I figured I’d share my favorite Kids Winter Gear recommendation more broadly.
I have spent a lot of time and $ trying to find mittens that will stay on wiggly ‘lil hands. I think my count of toddler/infant mittens was nearing a half dozen until I found the BEST PAIR of Toddler Mittens HANDS DOWN!! When my boys changed daycare this fall, these mittens were on the recommended gear list and they are GAME changers — I literally tell anyone and everyone!This is the first time I have found mittens that meet all of my (very basic) requirements:
- Easy to put on, ie. no thumb holes
- Stays on wiggly hands
- Super Warm
Waterproof is the one that so many companies miss, infants and toddlers spend 80% of their time rolling around in the snow so if a mitten is not waterproof you end up with soggy mittens and COLD hands. These mittens are also super easy to get on, they look like funnels until you cinch them down, there are no thumb holes to wrestle with and they do not come off once you cinch the bungees.So there you have it, if you are in the market there is no better mitten for 0-2yr olds PERIOD. These would also make a great $30 gift for a bday, shower, etc.
My only regret is that I didn’t find these when Parker was little because they will absolutely stand up as a hand-me-down.
