The three little kittens who lost their mittens better find another gig! Their nursery rhyme is obsolete with the invention of mimiTENS mittens for babies and toddlers, which stay put on tiny hands due to their ingenious design. Each mitten is attached to the end of a long, stretchy cuff that keeps little arms warm while ensuring that mittens won’t get left behind. Featuring vibrant colors and designs girls and boys will love, from rockets to fairies, mimiTENS are the brainchild of a mom who was tired of her own little kittens constantly losing their mittens! See how she came up with this solution we may all benefit from after the jump!
The mastermind behind mimiTENS is a mother of two girls, ages 4 and 6. When I asked about the inspiration behind these long-sleeved mittens she told me, “The moment of inspiration came when I was changing my daughter one day. I was trying to distract her while changing her diaper, pulled her socks off her feet and put them on her hands. Bells and lights went off. I had already bought about six different pairs of mittens for her and none would stay on.” She left her government job during the recession to take a chance on mimiTENS, and she is committed to running an eco-friendly and ethical small business.
mimiTENS are made in Canada and come in two varieties: ‘Soft’ and ‘All Weather.’ The latter is made of water-repellent nylon and lined with Thinsulate insulation as well as Oeko Tex certified bamboo/organic cotton fleece and is available in sizes 18 months to 5 years old. The ‘Soft’ line, made for babies up to 18 months is made entirely of bamboo/organic cotton material and boasts precious embroideries of animals including polar bears, squirrels and elephants.
mimiTENS would make perfect gifts for little ones so they may stay warm and stylish all season long!
