Toddlers' Cold Buster Waterproof Mittens is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tiny hands are warm again! A great quality snowsuit, hat, boots, and wool socks don't really matter that much when your toddler's hands are painfully cold after 10 minutes. That's where we were last year with so many other pairs we tried; we were so grateful to find these. They go on like a dream, stay on (they are comfy and well cut), and keep little hands warm and dry. Our 2.5 year old is on the small side (approx 25th percentile) with small hands and feet. By the size chart she would have fit size 2t-4t but we found those too large. Size 12 - 24 months fit her well with a bit of grow room. I do wish they were machine washable, but they are still the best I've found.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best toddler gloves out there My mom has been using these for years (apparently I wore them as a kid) and suggested them for my toddler boys. I ordered two pairs, the 12-24 month size for my 18-month-old and the 2T-4T for my 3.5-year-old. The fit is excellent. They stay on and keep hands warm and dry! I was a bit disappointed that the tag says NOT to wash them in a washing machine, but I wipe them off after use and the outside seems to come clean easily. I only wish they came in more colors, even just plain black. Maybe I ordered too late in the season and missed the color selection but I had to go with navy blue. In the end I would absolutely purchase these again and suggest them to anyone who needs winter gloves for their active kids!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cold hands, begone! I spent hours and hours looking for good quality, warm, waterproof mittens for my little one and I am so thankful I chose these! I am so pleased with them. They are so easy to get on and off. They kept my little one's hands warm and dry after playing for hours in 20 degree weather. And LLBean thought of everything: clips to hold them together when storing, strong velcro closure for a secure, snug fit around the wrists, a very long length so that they do not fall out of the coat sleeves. Thank you, thank you, LLBean, for making a great product that allows my child to play comfortably outside in these cold temperatures! And thank you for saving me time shopping each winter: I now know just to come to you for my mitten needs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Toddler Mittens We were looking for toddler mittens that were waterproof, would stay on, and that we could get our son's thumb into the the thumb part easily. These are great. They have a velcro split down the side of the wrist that makes it easier to get his hands in and his thumb in correctly. They have velcro straps around the wrists that helps keep them on. I was worried about the size before ordering as most toddler mittens/gloves we found were too big. These were a perfect fit with a bit of room to grow for a 2T boy who is on the smaller side of the scale. L.L. Bean hit it out of the park with these gloves. Highly Recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Toddler mittens We bought these mittens after a recommendation. I was having an awful time trying to get my 3 year old son to figure out how to put his thumb into the thumb area of regular mittens. We were both getting so frustrated, then once they were on him, they wouldn't stay on. These mittens Velcro way down so that you have an easy time getting all fingers and the thumb into the correct location (especially for little children who have trouble understanding what you are trying to get them to do). Once the hand is in the mitten and thumb in thumb part, you Velcro close and then there is an additional Velcro around the wrist, so the mitten doesn't fall off. Fantastic mittens for toddlers. My son has now used them for ice skating lessons and they take 2 minutes to put on and stay on the entire time. I'm expecting they will be equally amazing for playing in the snow and skiing. I bought 2 pairs! I did find that they run big, as my 3 year old is currently wearing the 18-24 month size.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from nice fit but not waterproof These mittens fit nicely and stay on the hand. They are relatively warm, the room for fingers to wiggle helps them stay warm. But, they are not waterproof. Nowhere on the mitts do they claim to be waterproof. They soak water up like any regular mitten, they do not repel water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never get wet gloves Had these in northern NY where snow abounds. In both sizes for two of my three kids (the third is a baby). These gloves have NEVER allowed my kids hands to be wet or cold. They have never complained about them, and the strap around the wrist keeps them snuggly on all the time. No issue falling off. I love, love, love these gloves! L.L. Bean you need to make them in a 5T and greater!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Scratchy Velcro I want to LOVE these mittens and I mostly do, as long as I configure the way the Velcro wrist vent is laying just so... otherwise my child ends up with scratches on his hands and wrists because the base of the Velcro has really scratchy corners and edges. A zipper might be a better design!
