    Haven't used yet, string is extremely long!

    A great product that will grow with my daughter, love it!
  • review score 5 Ewa on Monday, February 29, 2016
    Great product. Very good quality and really works - stops my baby from throwing his gloves out of the buggy.
  • review score 5 Cathy Cowie on Tuesday, February 16, 2016
    I thought about making some mitten strings but these looked great value for money! They are very easy to use so no instruction needed and they do exactly what they say on the box! They are elastic to allow for movement.
  • review score 3 suzy on Tuesday, January 26, 2016
    they used to be much stronger 2 years ago now the gloves can easily slip out :-(
  • review score 4 Peg on Thursday, January 21, 2016
    Great idea! Was going to just sew my daughter's gloves to a piece of elastic until I realised that of course I would then have to do the same for every pair as they'd be permanently attached. This makes much more sense as it's easily transferrable. Only slight flaw is that the clips on the end are quite small so struggle a bit to grasp really thick fluffy gloves. All round a good idea though.

    Super for keeping mittens from getting lost. Clip could be a little bit stronger otherwise no complaint.
  • review score 1 Teresa Be on Friday, December 11, 2015
    I bought this to save my toddler son's new George Pig mittens from getting lost. Unfortunately on the very first wear he instantly pulled the mittens free from the string. Thankfully I noticed before the gloves were lost. The clips need looking at, if this product is actually going to be a success.
  • review score 1 Cerrie on Wednesday, December 09, 2015
    Sadly the clips on mine are strong enough to hold onto my sons fleece gloves and they just ping off. Stupidly I had thrown all the packaging away before realising this so can't return it.
  • review score 5 Helen Johnson on Saturday, November 14, 2015
    I wasn't very impressed with this. It's not really worth the money and is too long to use for our baby.
  • review score 5 Jane on Tuesday, November 10, 2015
    Invaluable,no more lost mittens, interchangeable with other gloves too, cord a bit long for our little granddaughter at the moment but a knot in the middle solved that

  • review score 5 Sally on Saturday, January 24, 2015
    What a load of rubbish, the teeth on clasps don't close tight enough to hold mittens in place.
  • review score 4 CharlotteM on Saturday, January 24, 2015
    These are just great. I own a few sets for my 1 and 3 year old's coats and snowsuits. The would be long enough for an older child (still a bit too long for the 3 year old) but I just tie a big loop in it so it still fits the 1 year old. Other reviewers don't seem to like this but I just think it makes them last longer?? I have lost them in the past but now I just thread them through the coat label or hanger loop so they stay in place.
  • review score 1 Jo P on Tuesday, January 20, 2015
    Great idea but don't work! Toddler just pulls the mittens off as the grip isn't strong enough. Would be better if it was a hoop clip like the one on the mittens themselves.
  • review score 3 Charmian on Tuesday, January 20, 2015
    Excellent idea, sort of does the job. Unfortunately my little one (12 month old boy) can pull the gloves off the clips as they are not very strong. Maybe they'd work better with JoJo gloves rather than another brand?
  • review score 1 mo2b on Tuesday, January 20, 2015
    Good idea but the clips didn't grip the mitten particularly well. I tried it on some padded winter mittens. Might have been the thickness of the fabric but they kept popping off. Think I'll go back to sewing my own elastic on.
  • review score 1 Dave on Tuesday, January 20, 2015
    The grips are not strong enough to hold the mittens, had to cut the grips off and attach ourselves.
  • review score 5 Alison on Tuesday, January 20, 2015
    Great for keeping gloves on they work really well and because the string is nylon based it doesn't tangle!
  • review score 3 Mary on Sunday, January 18, 2015
    These are quite easy to use and seem well made, though they did lose grip on one mitten. They are quite long though, I'd bought them for my baby. Would be useful for a toddler.
  • review score 5 Davina Mann on Thursday, January 15, 2015
    Great product. We haven't lost a glove since we got them!

  • review score 5 kerry on Thursday, January 08, 2015
    great product! bought for my four year old, loved it so much that i bought 3 more (for other coat and 2 for younger daughter) as others have said they are quite long but i found if you loop it through the hanging loop of coat, then pull the clips through that loop to form a knot before putting through sleeves it makes them a better length and also stops them from hanging longer through one side within a day of wearing! :-)
  • review score 5 Laura on Tuesday, January 06, 2015
    Great product. My little boy's mittens are now secure. Clips work well and string it just the right length. We've had them a week now and we haven't lost one yet!
  • review score 1 Safia on Wednesday, December 24, 2014
    Rubbish they are too long and the clips are flimsy and do not hold gloves I lost one glove the first time I used these
  • review score 5 Shazmoz on Thursday, December 18, 2014
    A great update of sewing wool to mittens - very useful
  • review score 4 Laura on Wednesday, December 17, 2014
    No more worrying about lost mittens... Fantastic!

    The chord is rather too long but a knot in the back solves that. Very happy with my purchase, thank you.
  • review score 5 Lisa on Thursday, December 11, 2014
    Seems to keep gloves very
    Secure. Fits perfectly in coat and would recommend
  • review score 1 CHaze on Monday, December 08, 2014
    my daughter was able to detach the gloves in about 2 minutes, she is 20 months old. I don't think the clips are strong enough for the purpose.
  • review score 3 Louise Cooke on Wednesday, December 03, 2014
    Useful mitten string. I have found that you need to keep an eye on the mittens though as they so sometimes come off when my daughter is pulling her coat on and off. I might try stitching them on to give extra support to the clip.
  • review score 1 Vanessa Holland on Tuesday, November 11, 2014
    These strings were way too long even for a 5 year old, and when i tie them up they just slip out of the knot. my son has also managed to stretch the string to make them even longer. Wouldn't recommend.
  • review score 3 JO BENTON on Monday, October 20, 2014
    Great - keeps mittens really secure. A tad on the long side though so have had to knot to get it to the right length.
  • review score 5 jen on Friday, October 17, 2014
    A fantastic product for little ones and their gloves/ mittens!
  • review score 5 Katrina on Wednesday, October 15, 2014
    At last I can ensure we don't loose a mitten! A great invention and so far she's not managed to pull the mittens off!
  • review score 5 Elizabeth Carpenter on Tuesday, July 15, 2014
    Extremely useful & innovative item
  • review score 0 JennyD on Tuesday, February 25, 2014
    Great idea, and well-made, but the string is long (too long for my 3 and 5 year olds) so I have to tie extra loops in to stop the gloves dragging on the floor. Probably better for older kids as my kids are above average height for their age.
  • review score 0 Julie Greig on Tuesday, February 18, 2014
    Absolutely fabulous. These are brilliant and bought it after my daughter lost a beautiful hand knitted mitten and I was so upset. Fortunately the mitten was found but I will never have that upset again since using these. Great value at 4.
  • review score 0 Aimee Lowe on Thursday, February 13, 2014
    These certainly do the trick. Way way too long for young children though. I tie it at the back.
  • review score 0 Sarah on Thursday, February 13, 2014
    Really good item. Strong grips that hold well and long enough string. So good I bought 2!
  • review score 0 Laura on Wednesday, January 22, 2014
    Perfect for my 4 yr old who is forever losing her gloves! They're at bit long but have tied them up in the middle to make them shorter but it's not a problem.
  • review score 0 Katie on Friday, January 17, 2014
    I don't normally review products but these mitten strings are dreadful - a total waste of money. I bought 2 sets for my 15month old twin boys. The strings are far too long and the clips are really flimsy. My baby pulled his mitten off the clip instantly. Don't buy these.
  • review score 0 Stacy on Friday, January 03, 2014
    This is an essential bit of kit for any parent tired of pounding the streets retracing your steps looking for that one sorry mitten disguarded by your little one. Genius! The long string can be tied to make it shorter for little ones and lengthened when required.
  • review score 0 Debbie Christian on Saturday, December 14, 2013
    Absolutely brilliant, gone are the days of having to use pieces of elastic. I use for all 3 of my children, no more lost gloves and easy to swap gloves to wash the old ones-I have used these for years and tend to buy new ones each year (only because I forget were I put them!)
  • review score 0 Louise on Tuesday, December 10, 2013
    Great idea and they work well. These alow me to interchange the mittens for my twin daughters very easily. The string is way too long though, as other reviews state. I put a loop and a knot in the back of mine, but they are so long I have to do this twice otherwise the excess string hangs down beneath their coats! JoJo, you really ought to shorten the string given all the comments.
  • review score 0 Grace on Tuesday, December 03, 2013
    Really useful item. The clips are really secure, the string is rather long though! But like other reviews suggested I tied a knot in the middle to make it the right length.
  • review score 0 Halina Szulakowska on Monday, December 02, 2013
    Forget sewing on elastic to gloves and mittens - this is BY FAR the best and most practical way of making sure gloves don't go walkabout! The grips are really tough. BIG PLUS, though, is that if my son's gloves get wet, I can swap them easily for another clean, dry pair instantly. Saved me the hassle of sewing on elastic to several different pairs. WOULD RECOMMEND TO ALL!
  • review score 0 Emma Child on Monday, December 02, 2013
    Very useful mitten string, it is long as everyone says but you can tie a not in it. It seems very good quality and grips the mittens well.
  • review score 0 lottie on Wednesday, November 27, 2013
    A little long but just popped a bow in the middle job done plus as he gets older I wont have to worry about looking for a new one just undo the bow. Never lost a mitten yet and been using this for months
  • review score 0 Carol on Monday, November 25, 2013
    Thought these would be great but the clip has broken and i've only had it a week. Not up to the usual superb standard you expect from JoJo Maman

    Idea is great but String too long to use for my 3 yearold and not adjustable
  • review score 0 Teresa Regel on Sunday, January 27, 2013
    Unfortunately this mitten string did not work for us. I tried it on my son at 16 months old. The string was too long (so had to tie it in the middle). I put my son's coat on with the mitten string inside and mittens attached, and put him in the car for a short 10-min journey. By the time we got to our destination, he had got one of the mittens off of the string and was working on the other one. I tried again at another time and the same thing happened. I purchased this as the reviews were good at the time, but I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone.
  • review score 0 Sammy on Thursday, January 17, 2013

    Exactly what was required. Held the mittens securely, which is a good job as my granddaughter refused to keep the mittens on her hands so they would have got lost, had it not been for the mitten string!

  • review score 0 Jayne Eaton on Tuesday, December 25, 2012
    Really great idea. They manage to keep hold of my one year old daughter's gloves through her coat in a really tight grip. My only criticism is that the string is rather too long but this might be remedied when she gets older and her coats get bigger!
  • review score 0 Fiona on Wednesday, December 19, 2012
    Very useful - the elastic is very long so tie a little knot in it. Brilliant for both my 3 and 4 year olds.
  • review score 0 Kelly on Friday, December 14, 2012
    Solved the long string problem with a knot, and the clips are quite secure. A good product
  • review score 0 Amanda on Friday, December 14, 2012
    As most reviews say I agree the string is far too long. The clips are very very hard to open too. I would not buy them again I would just sew mittens onto a cord like last year.
  • review score 0 Kate on Wednesday, December 12, 2012
    This item is indeed very long but we've also lost one lovely JoJo glove as my daughter was able to open the clasp/clip and lose it whilst out and about only a few days after they arrived :(
  • review score 0 Vesela on Tuesday, December 11, 2012
    I'm very happy with this product

  • review score 0 Eve on Tuesday, December 11, 2012
    I wouldn't recommend these. The first set I had, the clip was broken when it arrived (though I understand these things happen so that's fair enough). However, once the replacements arrived the clip isn't 'long' enough to grip enough of the gloves, so my little ones gloves come off. The string is really long too and whilst i've tied a couple of knots in it they come undone. A great idea but not a great product.
  • review score 0 Lynn Maharaj on Friday, December 07, 2012
    I would not recommend buying this. It is too long, non-adjustable. My son had it on his gloves for one day and the school told me they had to remove it as he kept standing on it and it was dangerous.
  • review score 0 Karen on Wednesday, December 05, 2012
    I read all the review before purchasing - like others, the string is too long but easily fixed by a double knot to shorten. Clips are good & hold onto the mittens - no more gloves left in the nursery garden! Very pleased.

    I bought these as my 11 months old baby girl keeps pulling her mittens off. although they dont keep them on her, at least i know i wont lose them. only negative was that it is far too long for her, but is easily knotted to reduce the length, and will be usable as she gets older :D
  • review score 0 Hannah on Thursday, November 29, 2012
    Nice strong clips - haven't lost any gloves at school since buying this. String is a bit long, but doens't seem to bother my 5 year old!
  • review score 0 Beth on Thursday, November 29, 2012
    Great product. My son had to have these for nursery, but I wanted an option of him not always having to have them on at other times, so this was great as they didn't have to be sewn in. The cord is quite long, but that's good as he's a tall boy and you can easily shorten it by timing a quick knot. The clip is very secure and gloves stay on even if he pulls at them. He cant work out how to open the clip either - in fact it even took his daddy a while to suss it out too! In an ideal world I'd have the 'jaws' of the clip just slightly longer so that they go further down the glove. Overall v.pleased and with free delivery it made this product good value.

  • review score 0 Kath Woodman on Monday, November 19, 2012
    Essentially a great product but the elastic is too long for my 15 month old (who's not a small boy!). Problem easily solved though by tying a knot in the elastic to make it shorter. On the positive side, we haven't lost any mittens since having this product (2 weeks)!!
  • review score 0 Louise Nickless on Saturday, November 17, 2012
    A great idea. The clips are strong and have little teeth which hold the gloves in place. As other reviewers have said, the string is quite long even for our nealy 5 year old, but a knot does the trick!
  • review score 0 Susan Suttle on Wednesday, November 14, 2012
    I bought two of these for a 2 year old and 5 year old, after losing numerous gloves last year. After 2 weeks, both pairs of gloves are still hanging out of my childrens coats. They dont mind this and it stops the worry of forgetting to pack the gloves when the weather turns unexpectedly. The string is quite long as it caters for all ages, so I have had to tie a knot on both to reduce the length, but the kids dont seem to have minded this. all together a lifesaver when you either keep losing gloves, or are not organised to have gloves available at all times.
  • review score 0 Janice mcnaught on Friday, November 09, 2012

    After loosing Frankie's first mittens last winter - I decided not to take the chance this year and invested in some Mitten string to keep Frankie's mitten's firmly in place. They do a fantastic job and so far we still have 2 mittens!! The clips are really tough, so they have a great firm grip on the mittens. Exactly what you would expect from Jojo's, another brilliant product!! Thank you. xx

  • review score 0 Suzanne Heathcote on Friday, January 06, 2012
    A great idea. I have had no problems with the clips attaching the gloves and they have never fallen so thumbs up for that. However, I find the string far too long and it is difficult to tie it to shorten it due to the rubbery material the string is made from - the knots come undone. About 3 times too long for my little ones coat.
  • review score 0 Jess Layton on Wednesday, December 07, 2011
    I am quite disappointed with this product. The clips are not deep enough so can't hold on to enough material and being plastic they don't hold onto the mittens tightly enough. I bought them for my son so that he could keep hold of his mittens at nursery but they just keep coming off. Very disappointing.

A traditional way of keeping children's' mittens to hand.

Long rolled elastic with plastic clips to attach to gloves or mittens.
  • Attach one glove, thread through the sleeve, across the back and out the other sleeve and then attach the other glove
  • NB. If you buy our Polarfleece mittens they come with in-built clips which attach to the clips on our fleece coats and jackets but these are still really useful for all the other mittens and gloves you may have
