I received some fluffy mail today from Ireland! I entered a giveaway from Kidstuff and won these awesome tights from Slugs and Snails… Slugs and Snails makes ‘Bright tights for bold BOYS!’… Well, seeing as I have two girls, that didn’t stop me from wanting to try them out!
And, they are AMAZING! Seriously well made, thoughtfully designed. Grippies on the bottom for less slippage. They are pretty thick too and made from super soft material, 75% cotton, 20% polyamide, 5% elastine (a beautiful blend if you ask me, the fabric snob). AND, they are made in Latvia! Latvia!!! I have distant ancestors from Latvia! How cool is that?! I’ve honestly not been so impressed by a pair of tights before.
Also, for practicing elimination communication (EC), or even just for toilet training, they are really awesome, easy on and off. The best part about using them for EC, is if you don’t have a pair of undies on the kid, the crotch seam does not go down the centre (in other words, will not give them a massive wedgie). The sizing is very accurate too, I bought a size 2-3 for my 13 month old and a size 3-4 for my 3 1/2 year old and they fit well with a little room to spare.
The only problem is that it’s the end of our winter here in Australia! Hopefully the kids won’t grow too much so that they can wear them all next year! They have funky patterns for boys (and of course girls too, as you can see, my girls rocked them out pretty well). Thanks you Slugs and Snails and Kidstuff!
