It’s official, we have had snow on the ground twice already. I am mentally not ready for winter at all, but luckily Keegan is ready with his new accessories from iplay.
Keegan was very excited to go out and check out the snow in his new Fleece Earwarmer Cap from iplay ($12.00). This adorable fleece hat is made from printed 300 weight fleece. The hat reverses to a solid color micro-fleece lining. The hat is offered in two colors, either a Navy Blue Yeti print or Pink Floral.
Available in two sizes, either an infant (size 6-18 mos) or toddler (size 2-4 yr), I chose the toddler size for Keegan who is almost 2, and although he has a small head, it fit perfectly. I love the Velcro under-chin enclosure which keeps the hat over his ears and on his head. I also thought the Yeti print was so cute for my little monster!
We also received some very nice iplay Fleece Mittens ($8.00). I loved how easily these mittens went on Keegan with elastic wrist openings and Velcro enclosures. It is often so hard to get mittens on a toddler and these ones were a breeze to get on. I also really love the non-skid palms making it easier for Keegan to hold items. The mittens can be ordered in Hot Pink or Navy and come in 3 sizes NB (0-6 mo), Inf (6-18 mo), Tod (2-4 yr). I requested a toddler size 2-4 for Keegan and they fit him perfectly now but I really think the sizes run small and I know they would not fit my 4 year old.
The biggest challenge of having a toddler (or any child for that matter) with mittens is that they ALWAYS lose them. I was so thankful to receive a set of Mitten Clips ($5.00) from iplay. Offered in pink or navy, these mitten clips worked great for clipping Keegan’s mittens to his jacket sleeve. They are made with a strong elastic band and metal claps and held on great to Keegan’s jacket.
I was giddy to receive my first toy item for my baby to be. We did find out we are having a girl (due in January) and she now has her first item to cuddle with, a new Green Sprouts Organic Velour Blankie Animal ($15). I chose the Rose Bunny, but they also sell a Cornflower Lion and Sage Panda. This little blankie is so soft and cuddly and I love the adorable little tail. My only surprise was how small it was. From the picture I expected it to be much bigger, but from top of head (not counting hears to tail it is only 9 inches high and only measures about 5 1/2 inches across the body (not counting arms and legs). I would consider it more of a toy than a blankie.
