One of my biggest pet peeves is trying to get, and keep, mittens on a baby during the winter. Ashlyn acted as though we were amputating her hands every time we tried to force those teeny baby mittens on her hands, and then she’d promptly manage to get the mittens off and her little hands would freeze. Luckily, we were in Vancouver at the time and it wasn’t very cold during the winter so she survived. Now that we’re in Ottawa, I knew that Rowan would require something better to keep her little hands warm and dry during the winter months.
Having worked with Stonz Wear last year on a review their Booties, I know that the quality of their products stands up over time. Rowan is already wearing Ashlyn’s hand-me-down booties and now she has a pair of Stonz Mittz in Polka Dot – Brown to complete her winter wardrobe.
What makes Stonz Mittz different? Their features include:
- Two adjustable toggles ensure they stay on and keep the cold out!
- Extra-long wrists are designed to go over outerwear
- No thumb for sizes 0-24 months for ease of use and warmth, added thumb for sizes 2-7 years with an extra layer of protective rubberized fabric on the palm and thumb.
- Machine wash and dry, inside out on delicate.
- Made in Canada.
We chose size small (0-12 months) since Rowan is only 8 months old and they’re so much easier to put on than the other mittens we had lying around the house. I love that there are 2 toggles, so no snow/cold air will get in at the top, and her little hand will stay at the bottom right where it should be. No matter how hard she tries, she’s not wiggling out of these Mittz!
We had our first snowfall today and while Rowan didn’t get to play outside, her hands stayed toasty warm when we were out and about. Stonz Wear would be an excellent gift this holiday season, especially for the baby that has everything!
One lucky reader will win either a pair of Stonz Wear Booties OR Stonz Wear Mittz in their choice of colour and size!
