Comments about REI Snowy Creek Fleece Mittens - Toddler Girls':
I bought a 3T for my newly-turned three year old, and there is definitely room to grow. However, the cinch strap is so easy to use and actually keeps the gloves on! While she can get them off when determined, they don't just fall off mid-play. The two complaints she has are: (first) the difficulty getting her thumb into the thumb hole (likely because they are a bit big yet) and (second) their softness and mitten-shape makes it impossible to grip the swing chain tightly enough during a high-flying "underdog" push. Otherwise, we both love them!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
