Kids' Winter Walker Snowshoes is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Christmas presents My twin boys each got these snowshoes for Christmas; one red and the other blue so they can tell them apart. They were very excited to get them (they hated their old snowshoes) They are such an improvement; their old ones used to slip off their small boots all the time. These never slipped and they were hiking for hours, up and down hills, on packed snow and in powder, and jumping on and off their sleds. They have the 19 inch size and even though they are on the small side of the size chart at 60 pounds, they were the perfect size and now I know they will be able to use them for several years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Four Years of Use and Going Strong I bought these for myself, a 5' tall, 95 lb adult. After about four years of use on pretty rough terrain (rocky, branch-strewn hiking trails, sometimes thin snow cover), my pair is still going strong. They go up and down hills with no problem. They do throw up a good amount of snow behind, but at least with my gait, the snow tends to be thrown back, not up onto your pant legs. I am an occasional weekend snowshoer, so these aren't subjected to daily wear and tear, but I'm quite pleased with the quality and durability of this product, especially for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great snow shoes! We have three pairs of the kids winter walker snow shoes - one in the above style, and two older pairs that have a different binding system. I found these newer ones harder to put on and off than the older versions, the bindings were also harder to adjust, but overall, they're still a great snow shoe. I kind of wish LLBean would go back to the older bindings, it was so much easier!!! These snow shoes last forever. We have three children and we've had and used ours so far for about 9 years! They are very high quality. I love the new color options too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Specs are very misleading I bought these for my grandkids years ago when they were just 2 and 3 years old and they were great! Now I wanted to purchase a pair for my 4 year old granddaughter who wears a size 10 shoe. The specs for the 16" size say that the capacity is for 25 to 60 lbs. Due to the look of the new binding, I contacted customer service to ask about the minimum shoe size and was told it was size 13. The average child wearing a size 13 shoe is 6 years old and weighs 45 lbs. The average child turning 2 years old weighs 25 lbs. and wears a size 6 shoe. So, the specs for these snowshoes are very misleading and the Winter Walker no longer will accommodate young children. I would have rated 5 stars for the earlier pairs I purchased (including 4 pair for adults), but would now rate it 1 for the inaccurate specs and bindings which will not work for young children. That is my reason for 3 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great kids' snowshoes Each of my grandchildren receive snowshoes on the Christmas following the second birthday; I've purchased several so far. The bindings are easy to manipulate and LL Bean's snowshoes are just right size for kids. They get the hang of it after just a few steps. An added plus is that LL Bean stands behind their products...they repaired one set [so far] at no charge, when the dog chewed up a binding! Can't ask for better than that!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought for self: adult I bought these for myself to use as trail walkers fo good grip in the winter w/o having to wear overkill huge adult snowshoes. They were to replace/upgrade my older LLBean Kid's snow shoes that have this annoying plastic heel cup to fit into. I wear a size 7 boot, size 5 1/2 kids. The straps are too short to fit around any of my winter boots. I can use these with my hiking books which are narrower because they are not winter insulated. Like them so much more than the older version just wish the straps were long enough to accommodate my winter boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent purchase! My 6 year old loves them and they are very easy for her to put on herself once we unwrapped them & adjusted the straps for her. Another quality purchase from The Bean, couldn't be happier! In fact, we were so impressed I ordered a pair for myself, my husband and our nephew. Now we just need more snow!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great serious kid's snowshoes High quality real, serious snowshoes for little kids. I bought for 3 yr old, still a little big, will probably be right when she wears a size 11 shoe. But then should fit for years.
