Mittyz totally reinvents mittens for kids. Starting with the fact that kids will actually want to wear them.

Wintery white snowy days are coming whether we are ready for them or not. This year I am going to try to be prepared with updated snow gear for the kids that fits and is comfortable, encouraging longer outdoor playtime. So lucky us, we just discovered Mittyz mittens, a really different new kind of mittens for kids with some smart features designed to keep them on. Not that your kids will want to take them off. Mittyz (also available at Amazon right now at a good discount) are made to slip on hands easily — even over those bulky Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man coat sleeves — and to stay...

WarmMuffs: The first sleeping bags for the person pushing the stroller, not riding in it.

When I first saw a pair of WarmMuffs from our friends at 7AM Enfant earlier this winter, my brain instantly filed them under Things You Totally Don’t Need In Life. One arctic freeze of a winter later, I admit I’ve come back to thinking about them. Now I firmly place them in the Things You Totally Don’t Need In Life But Will Probably Be Really Glad You Have During an Arctic Freeze file. Essentially these are super warm, cozy, sleeping bag style stroller mittens, that are designed specifically to grip a stroller handle. The Velcro closure lets you wrap your fingers around the bar for a tighter grip than you’d get with...

Don’t hate the cold. Love Winter.

The hardest person to keep warm in winter always seems to be the baby–they’re just too small to layer too much, and I hate trying to wrangle them into a coat. So other than layers of baby blankets, I turn to hats, booties, and mittens. This year I’m already obsessing about the Love Winter line of warm winter accessories for toddlers I just discovered from Elks & Angels.     The Love Winter hats, booties, and mittens are each available in almond, pink, or grey Australian sheepskin leather, accented with shearling wool, and they are sooooo soft. Seriously, this is pure luxury for your smallest family members....

Mighty mittens that stay put so kids stay warm

In my neck of the woods, it seems the snow is now here to stay. And with the cold, snowy weather comes the whining. And the complaining. And the putting-a-pair-of-mittens-on-your-toddler-sixteen-times because you know, he keeps pulling them off. So I’m happy to see that CMP-fave mimiTENS has now created a new line just for babies and littler kids. MimiTENS stay on and the kids keep warm because these Canadian-made mittens have a long, stretchy cuff that goes over a child’s arm, keeping their mittens right where you want them. We Canadians know a thing or two about keeping warm, after...

That’s what happens when the weather drops to freezing in the Northeast and my kids, who normally hate bundling up, start complaining about cold fingers.

The classic mittens have an elasticized wrist to keep snow and wind out (and baby...

Kid mittens that war with each other instead of you

I sometimes feel like my son’s mittens are at war with me. I’m either always searching for one or trying to battle against my son’s hands to put them on. Finally, an adorable pair of mittens that appreciate the hand to hand combat we moms have to face every winter. The new handmade Vs Mittens Juniors are a genius way to get your kid to actually look forward to wearing mittens. Each pair comes with one animal predator…and one prey. You can choose from dog vs cat, frog vs fly or bird vs bee. My personal fave is the...

What’s better than a scarf? A Snood.

When I was in Spain last month, I was introduced to Snoods from Kid Cashmere, these beautiful handmade cashmere sleeves from mom Jolie Sutton. Over the head they’re like ear-warming hats, but down around the neck they replace scarves – maybe even better, after hearing all those scary stories about little kids who get their scarves caught in bad places. (Eek.) All the items in the shop are handmade from Italian and Scottish spun cashmere, and silk yarns, making them really smooth and not the fuzzy kind of cashmere that ends up in your mouth. And now that I...
