If you’ve got kids and live in a place where winters are cold and snowy, you may relate to the case of the missing mitten/s or the hassle of keeping mitts on! These are issues that we’ve struggled with for years with Little One…until we were introduced to Smart Mitts.
I grew up in a time when we had knitted mitts attached with a long piece of yarn that went through the sleeves of our jackets or snowsuits. My mitts would always get wet and cold, and I’d often get tangled up in that long piece of yarn. Years later, parents were told that those mitts that were attached by yarn were no longer permitted, as they were a hazard. The mittens on the string would sometimes dangle or children would get caught on things with the string.
I was really intrigued when I came across Smart Mitts online. I thought the idea of waterproof mittens wrapping around children’s backs, under their arms and through their sleeves was very clever. I also like that the band is long and stretchy and doesn’t let the mitts dangle. Another great thing about Smart Mitts is that the long cuffs keep snow out and hands in! Did I mention that they’re waterproof too?
It wasn’t until my friend, Amanda from Multi-Testing Mommy included Smart Mitts in our Great Holiday Giveaway for Kids that I decided to order some for Little One, my nieces and nephews and check them out firsthand.
Smart Mitts keep hands warm.
Kids’ hands are kept warm in frigid temperatures while playing outside in the cold because Smart Mitts are lined with soft, cozy luxury line fleece and are interlined with Thinsulate.
No more lost mittens!
Before Smart Mitts, I have probably bought Little One dozens of mittens. Little One has the incredible ability of
misplacing losing things. Mittens and socks are the worst!
Now, that’s not an issue because Little One’s miteens are practically “attached”, as the band goes around her back, under her arms, and through her sleeves. The best part yet? She LOVES them! She even picked them out online. She chose the purple Smart Mitts with the pink band because they match her snowsuit and boots!
Several people have asked me about Little One’s awesome mitts when they saw photos on Instagram and Facebook. I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to tell everyone about Smart Mitts!
We spend a lot of time doing outdoor Winter activities, so I’m glad we have Smart Mitts for Little One!
