Perfect for my Two Year Old!
on February 14, 2012
I had a really hard time picking these mittens based on the photo but I'm so glad I chose them. I *hate* putting mittens on a toddlers, because I can never ever manage to get their thumb in the hole without a lot of frustration, but these mittens are a dream. My son is nearly 3 and is average size with tiny little hands. I purchased size small and they are perfect for him. The wrist portion of the mitten is velcroed and opens up nice and wide so it's easy to get their hand in there. There is room enough in the wrist opening that I can slide my finger inside to help guide his thumb into the hole, which is always where it's supposed to be and doesn't pull out of place when he takes them off.
The wrist portion of the mitten isn't as long as some others (snow stoppers) but it's long enough. We always put mittens on first and then the jacket, and they are long enough to not pull out of the jacket and expose his wrists.
In short, these mittens are easy to put on, nice and warm, and water repellent. I would buy them again, although I'd say my only complaint is that they are not waterPROOF. If the snow is very heavy and wet, they do eventually get soaked through to the inside. My son doesn't stay out all that long anyways so it's not that big of a deal, but it would be nice if they were completely waterproof.
