I was recently sent a cool product called Winter Warmer Bandana from Kewt Kids. The Winter Warmer Bandana is the safe alternative to a traditional scarf. The bandana scarf has no loose ends and it sits close to the neck to keep the child warm. It is incredibly easy to put on with a velcro closure in the back.
Both of my sons have used the Winter Warmer Bandana several times since we got it. Both have no trouble putting it on and both have told me they like how it feels. Aiden is incredibly sensitive to fabric textures and he loves the warmer. I love that it is completely machine washable and dryer friendly.
Kewt Kids says that the one size of Winter Warmer Bandana will fit sizes 6 months up to 8 years. I can say that it fits all 3 of my children perfectly- ages 3, 6, and 7. Here is a picture of Aiden wearing it just before he put on his winter coat...
I think the Winter Warmer Bandana is a very clever product and I would definitely recommend it! It is VERY cold here (-29 degrees today) and I love the added protection it gives my non-scarf wearing children. It is soft and warm and looks cool- perfect!
