Default WANTED: Toddler Snowsuits, Mittens

Ideally, a Boys 3T/4T and a Girls 4T/5T sets with the snow pants/overalls thing and a jacket. Oh, and waterproof mittens/gloves.

I'm looking at Target right now, which seems to be the cheapest I can find... $35 for a matching set; $32-$33 if I mismatch the pants and jacket. And I can't find inexpensive waterproof toddler mittens.

(Since my area doesn't get any snow, it's hard to find this stuff without driving 3 hours North, hoping that the Flagstaff Target has what I need.)

I am scratching my head here. Snowsuit? Girl, did you forget where you live?

I was waiting for someone to say, "Dude. You live in Phoenix. Do you even know what snow is?" Last winter, we wanted to make several trips up to Flag to play in the snow, but we waited too long to buy suits. I called the Target up there, and they said to start shopping in September. I was expecting $20 a suit, not nearly $40.

Ahhh. That makes sense. Hope you find something. Obviously, I'd be of no help, either.

Truly, I just wanted to say, if you don't have any luck, you could probably just improvise. I live in Southern California, and my parents would pack us up to the mountains for snow time. We basically wore what we'd wear for rain, but with more layers: the most waterproof footwear and clothing we had, with an extra layer or two of everything underneath. Have you checked out any thrift stores? I realize there may not be a ton of that sitting around in Phoenix, but maybe it's worth checking. And you might poke around online, just in case. Good luck! The snow is so much fun!

That's a good idea! Only, it doesn't rain here, so we don't have "rain clothes."

Yes, and they're surprisingly expensive. I might as well buy new.
