Sputtens™ are adorable character mittens designed much like a sock puppet in order to provide superior protection from the elements and maximum fun for toddlers and young children. The tube sock like design is perfect for covering small hands all the way up to the elbow so they cannot be pulled off, fall off, or fill with snow. The cute, cuddly, and colorful character designs make them fun to wear so kids are excited to get them on. By utilizing technologically advanced fleece fabric Sputtens are extremely warm, water resistant and durable. The majority of the mitten is made with 200 weight fleece for warm and soft protection. The inside of the palm and fingers utilize a powerful waterproof shield to protect snow grabbing hands. They are made to easily fit on either hand without struggle or frustration. The minimalist design and lightweight material provide maximum comfort for small, fragile hands while still providing excellent protection. They are also very stretchy like a sock so they are easily scrunched up and slide over the hand right up to the elbow.
As a mother of three adventurous kids in the Northeast I am no stranger to clothing challenges but mittens and toddlers have always been my greatest frustration by far, it always seems that after struggling to get the mittens on they fall off or fill with snow minutes after getting outside. Almost every parent I’ve spoken with agrees that mittens and young kids never work well. I’ve personally tried everything to keep my kids hands warm but it was always the same in the end… lost mittens, freezing hands, and crying kids. Finally at my wits end I resorted to putting the kids in old ski socks for mittens which seemed to work better than anything on the market. Of course they lacked some important qualities such as adequate insulation and water resistance so they were always getting wet and covered with snow… they weren’t exactly fashion forward either and the kids seemed to know it as well. With no alternatives available I set to work to create a real answer to this problem and so The Sock Puppet Mitten Company and Sputtens were born!
