We got these mittens for Matilda's upcoming trip to visit winter, but have been trying them out on our evening walks in the breezy 40-degree weather this week. They are like little straightjacket mittens with no thumbhole, which you think would make them easier to get on her flappy, protesting little hands. I put them on mid-way through our walk home from the library this evening and her response was about like a dog with a cone on his head.
First she tried rubbing her hands together. Then she tried biting them off. Finally she discovered if she waved her arms long enough they would eventually fly off. I am sure we were quite a sight walking all the way home with her flapping like mad strapped on the front of me.
