You know how you struggle to get mittens on your baby and 30 seconds later that little rascal has ripped them off and flung them from the stroller? Yeah, one company felt your pain and created the solution! I give you SNOWSTOPPERS!!!
Available in a rainbow of colors as both mittens ($16.95 in sizes 6 months - 12 years) and gloves ($19.95 in sizes 4-16 years), SnowStoppers feature an extra long cuff that keeps snow out and keeps them on your child! Simply put the gloves or mittens on the child, pull the cuff all the way up, tighten the velcro strap on the wrist, and put their coat over on top. Et voila. Good luck trying to pull that one off little guy!!
SnowStoppers gloves and mittens feature tough grip palms and thumbs, making them fabulous for sledding, skiing, snowboarding, etc. A nylon shell resists ice and snow, while the 40g of Thinsulate™ insulation adds warmth without bulk.
We just got the SnowStoppers mittens for our girls, so we haven't had a chance to test them out in the brutal cold or snow yet, but I have a really really good feeling about these bad boys. My girls are loving them, and were not able to pull them off despite their best efforts. So, eventually they gave up and had a grand old time marching around joyfully clapping their little lobster hands together!
SnowStoppers has an array of other products, including hats (like the Jester hats my girls are wearing above - how freaking cute?!?!?!?), fleece mittens, and brand new this season - snow boots!!
We got a pair of the new SnowStoppers Snow Boots ($36.95 in sizes Toddler 7/8 - Youth 4) for my son and just like the mittens, these things are game changers!! They're like regular boots, but with an extra long water-proof sleeve on the interior, which is removable and machine-washable!! The inner part zips and the outter part velcros over it, so they're easy to get on and off but will stay on and keep the snow out. We haven't had a chance to try them out in the cold just yet, so I can't attest to them keeping the tootsies toasty warm all day long, but I think we are going to be loving these boots this winter!!
You can find SnowStoppers gear on Veranda Outdoors' website (along with lots of other great stuff!), and on Amazon. You can also win a pair of SnowStoppers Mittens (winner chooses size and color) in my $480 value Winter Is Coming Giveaway going on right now!!!
