|Snow & Mud: Ontario in March!|
The Canadian winter is one of my greatest pleasures and one of my greatest challenges as a parent. If you're in or near the Toronto area, you'll know that it's hard to dress kids for our weather. March has snow that melts, but winter boots allow water to leak in. Put your child in rain boots, and he or she will complain of freezing feet. So what to do with all those great mud puddles out there?
|Stonz Rain Boots Shown With & Without Linerz|
I was excited when I learned that Stonz had started making kid's rain boots! This is the same Canadian company that I had loved for my toddler's winter boots and mittens. I had loved them because their winter wear is quality made, very warm, kept my child's hands dry, and (in the case of the Stonz "booties" and "mittz") my child was physically unable to remove them due to their clever childproof system!
|What Footwear Does Your Child Wear on Days Like These?|
Stonz rain boots combine logic similar to their infant/toddler boot line: a quality product designed especially for kids. I noticed that the boots are just the right height for my child: not those short boots that always take in water, and not those hip wading boots that are so high that a child can barely walk. I also liked that I could add "linerz" boot insulators to my order, to make the boots warmer on muddy spring days in which there is still snow on the ground. (I had purchased similar linerz for my child's Stonz winter booties, and highly recommend them!)
|I Am Canadian!|
Stonz rain boots are available in toddler sizes 5 to 13, and youth sizes 1 to 4. They come in yellow/black, blue/black, pink/black and grey/black. The boot "linerz" fit ages 4-8+ years old. The rain boots cost $35.99 and the boot linerz are $18.99. Orders $50+ are eligible for FREE shipping in Canada and the US!
|Go On: Get Muddy!|
What's your winter like right now? Is it snowy, muddy or snuddy (snowy and muddy)?
