Kids' Fleece Robe is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 655.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reviewing 8 Years Later To clarify, I bought this robe in 2010 to take to my freshman year of college after finding all of the robes intended for 18 year old girls would not cover any of the things I was purchasing a robe to cover as I walked back to my dorm room from the bathroom after a shower...I still have and wear this robe 8 years later. It's warm, it dries quickly (important for the purpose I was using it for) and it still looks brand new. It was much bigger than I was expecting, but that actually worked out for the better. I'm 5'1" and this hits me about mid-shin. I'm a solid build yet still petite and this also fully crosses over my chest. But it being a bit big just makes it that much cozier.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Quality I hate to do this bc LLBean has never disappointed before, but I just had to write a review on this. I ordered 3 of these robes for my kids for their birthdays, with monogramming. First of all, the monogramming wasn't complete, with some letters not filled in. Secondly, when I washed them, they pilled so badly, they looked like something I had picked up off the street - not something you'd want to open on your birthday. Finally, they left the paper backing behind the monograms. I can't even get it off. So I purchased a fabric shaver (not cheap) and shaved all the robes. Took me at least 2 hours total. But at least they looked presentable. I would recommend you find another robe for your kids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thick, soft and warm! My kids needed robes to bring to summer camp. (Note to self: June is not the time to shop for robes, hardly anyone carries them that time of year!) Fortunately LL Bean did offer them, and I purchased two -- blue for my son and purple blue for my daughter. They arrived quickly and are really wonderful -- thick, soft and warm. It's chilly in the mornings and evenings at camp, and I know my kids will love being able to be warm and snuggly in these robes. Generously sized -- I ordered a 10-12 for my 10-year old son who's a little tall for his age, and the robe and sleeves were plenty long; I think we'll get another 2 years out of it. Love the attached belt, too -- an excellent detail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This red doesn't seem "nautical"-- - - - This Christmas I bought LL Bean bathrobes and matching slippers for 4 grandchildren. Both the robes and slippers are great: warm, soft, well made, match perfectly and are true to size. My only gripe is the color of the red robe and slippers, purchased for my 6 yr.old grandson. The color, which I expected to be roughly the color of the stripes on the Flag #and that's the way it looks in most of the illustrations# turned out to be what I would call magenta. Not nautical as I know it! Luckily, the grandson does not see them as "girlie", so they stay. But maybe a bit more quality control is called for in illustrations and assigning shade names.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Kids' Robe! We bought this robe for both of our sons, in blue and red, last Christmas 2011. They love theirs so much that we bought one in pink for our daughter this Christmas 2012. The robe is great quality. Nice soft fleece without being too hot. (And we live in Mississippi so that is saying something!) The sizing is good, nice and roomy. Order true to size and you will be pleased. My favorite feature is how the sash is stitched onto the back of the robe so it can't ever get lost. The colors are bright and have not faded after many washes. Our kids love wearing theirs and will be able to do so for several more years. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome robe!! I looked everywhere when my son asked for a robe. Everything I found was of poor quality, thin, and very pricey. Then I checked LLBean and the reviews. Decided to give this robe a try as the reviews were great. So glad I did!! It's very soft and durable, yet thick and of very good quality. It will definitely last for a couple years until he outgrows it. I think the robe tends to be cut large, so your sure to get several seasons wear out of it. I ordered both a small and medium since I wasnt sure which one would fit my son. He usually wears a medium, but the small was plenty big with room to grow. Highly recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from wish they came in larger sizes Our son is now 14, so this size 18-20 Kids fleece robe will be his last from LL Bean, sadly. He LOVES this robe and we've ordered it in several sizes over the years, as he's grown. My only "negative" with this latest one is that the texture, while soft, is different than the past ones. More "artificial" (think "Styrofoam fabric") and less cottony/natural feeling. May have something to do with the flame-resistant material? I know these are not made of natural materials, but this particular robe feels the least "natural" of all the ones he's had in the past.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing The style and fabric of these robes are beautiful and soft. Unfortunately as soon as I opened the package I immediately smelled a strong chemical odor. I haven't washed them yet to see if it will dissipate, but I would not put these on my kids if they still smell like this. I also saw that these are made in China; hugely disappointing from LlBean.
