i play, Inc. Winterwear Review, Discount & Giveaway! Ends 3/25

i play, Inc. was founded on values that prioritize the protection of our children and the earth. Their products encourage healthy and safe development through playing as they continually research better ways to make safer baby products for your children. With lots of fun products to choose from, you'll enjoy shopping the i play and Green Sprouts lines without worrying about the materials and chemicals used.

I've reviewed a few items from i play and Green Sprouts in the past. This time I was sent the Waterproof Insulated Vest and Fleece Pants (both in size 4T) for my 3 year old.
The Waterproof Insulated Vest is Buddy's favorite clothing item right now! He says, "It's just like Cole's!" (a kid in his church class). So cute! The vest is made using waterproof nylon (not PVC, yay!), and hypoallergenic poly fill insulation. My favorite part of the vest is that it's reversible as you can see above. To me that means I have more wardrobe options all in one and Buddy can choose what he likes best. The zipper is double sided to accommodate for this, and there is also a little bit of extra nylon that covers the top of the zipper so there's no pinching or discomfort from it. I like the puffiness of the vest and how it feels very dense and yet it's not going to make your kid look like a big marshmallow! It's perfect for keeping your little one warm while playing outside, without being cumbersome like a big jacket can be. I think the sizing is great, and will probably work in the fall and into next winter since it's a great length and not at all tight when zipped up. I think this vest is a fabulous choice for cold weather.

The simple, elastic waist fleece pants are pretty basic, but very high quality. They aren't your average $5 quality you find at a department store at all. They are thick and warm and generously cut in the bottom and thighs for a variety of body shapes. The 4T pants we received are true to size in the waist, although they are a little long (a lot of 4T pants on Buddy are long though). That means they will be a great fit for an older, thin and tall child too. What I also noticed about the pants (and you may be able to see in the photo) is that the bottom of the pants are tapered enough that they won't drag on the ground despite the longer length.

The vest and pants are both available in the blue colors I received, or in pink for girls. The sizes for each are size Medium (12 months) to 4T.
