Getting children to bundle up in hats and mittens for cold-weather jaunts might be less of a chore if there was a way to make the experience more fun. There is, thanks to the folks at Aurora World and their new animal-shaped Mitts’N Hat. The combination hat, scarf and mittens consists of a plush animal-head hat, with two 35-inch-long dangling plush “legs” that function as a scarf and culminate in foot-shaped mittens. The wild outerwear comes in five styles: a monkey, tiger, giraffe, panda, or alligator. Each of these colorful buddies has a very happy face and plush ears (the alligator has scales, the giraffe plush horns). And since the entire outfit is one piece, there’s no misplacing a lone mitten. Designed for children ages 3 to 7.
Mitts’N Hat is $19 at www.auroragift.com.
