Ok, so these mittens are wonderful.
I have a three year old who LOVES being outside. She hates wearing anything on her hands though and then she gets "freezing fingers mommy." So we try these mitts and she completed the whole raking and piling of leaves in the yard with me without taking them off. Then when she was ready to take them off she couldn't! Yippee! They helped her remain dexterous and stayed on!
Second episode: outside playing in first snowfall and racing to get her out with her brother I grabbed the Oshkosh (takes 2 seconds to get them on) mitts. Well, 10 minutes later she came in on her own accord and upset. "Want the OTHER mittens mommy!"
Money well spent.
Over and out. =)
