Get the fit right!

INSEAM If the inseam is too low it’s difficult to play and the zipper will wear out faster. It’s important to get the right size to avoid any issues. KNEES & ELBOWS For long-lasting play, our snowsuits and shell overalls are reinforced at both the knee and elbow. The correct size ensures that reinforcements will be at the right place on the body.  REFLECTORS We have a lot of reflectors for safety on our snowsuits and shell overalls. If the size is too large they get obscured.

Keep Warm Layer by Layer

Our range of outerwear is designed with warmth and comfort in mind. Layering retains heat, leads moisture away from the body and keeps rain and snow at bay. Add or remove a layer when there is a change in weather or activity levels. LAYER 1 Merino wool or polyester base layers will lock in warmth next to the skin much better than cotton ever will. Good thermal layers should lead cold moisture away from the skin, and wool and polyester do the job perfectly. Look out for our kids thermals designed to look like everyday clothing, not just underwear, so they can do a good job inside and out this winter.

Rainbow Project: Christina

Christina and her husband decided to go through open adoption and they share all their thoughts and emotions from their life on their blog- http://www.fifiandmo.com/.  Little Finley was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy at 15 months, but that doesn’t stop them from taking on the world together with a smile on their face. Christina (@FifiandMo) Did you know FIFI had Cerebral Palsy when you adopted her?  Not officially. When we were chosen to be her parents, she was a typical, healthy fetus. Because of her prematurity, she suffered Brain-bleeding which caused the Cerebral Palsy. We considered her ours from the moment we were picked, nothing was going to change that. The Adoption was finalized when she was 14 months old, she was formally diagnosed the following month. It was obvious that she had substantial physical delays …

Rainbow Project: MELISSA KVITKO

Melissa

After going through a smooth pregnancy and birth, Melissas little baby Sonya Rose did not pass the hearing test at the hospital and was declared deaf. Sonya has had cochlear implants since 7 months and is now learning both English and Russian!  MELISSA KVITKO (@mmkvitko) When/How did you discover Sonya Rose had a hearing disability? Like most babies, Sonya was screened for hearing loss a day after her birth. My pregnancy and her birth had gone very smoothly, but I still dreaded the hearing screen as my husband and I are both carriers of Connexin 26 – a non-syndromic hearing loss gene. This meant that there was a 25 percent chance that Sonya would have hearing loss. Still, I figured the odds were in our …
