they used to be much stronger 2 years ago now the gloves can easily slip out :-(
Peg on 21 January 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.
Linda on 14 December 2015
Super for keeping mittens from getting lost. Clip could be a little bit stronger otherwise no complaint.
Teresa Be on 11 December 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.
Cerrie on 09 December 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.
Helen Johnson on 14 November 2015
I wasn't very impressed with this. It's not really worth the money and is too long to use for our baby.
Jane on 10 November 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
Lisa Cowperthwaite on 13 October 2015
Not used as yet.
Natalie White on 14 February 2015
Waste of money.
Sally on 24 January 2015
What a load of rubbish, the teeth on clasps don't close tight enough to hold mittens in place.
CharlotteM on 24 January 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.
Jo P on 20 January 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.
Charmian on 20 January 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?
mo2b on 20 January 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.
Dave on 20 January 2015
The grips are not strong enough to hold the mittens, had to cut the grips off and attach ourselves.
Alison on 20 January 2015
Great for keeping gloves on they work really well and because the string is nylon based it doesn't tangle!
Mary on 18 January 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.
Davina Mann on 15 January 2015
Great product. We haven't lost a glove since we got them!
Emily on 15 January 2015
fanstic product even better got it in the sale no more lost mittensx
kerry on 08 January 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! :-)
Laura on 06 January 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!
Safia on 24 December 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
Shazmoz on 18 December 2014
A great update of sewing wool to mittens - very useful
Laura on 17 December 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.
Lisa on 11 December 2014
Seems to keep gloves very Secure. Fits perfectly in coat and would recommend
CHaze on 08 December 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.
Louise Cooke on 03 December 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.
Vanessa Holland on 11 November 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.
JO BENTON on 20 October 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.
jen on 17 October 2014
A fantastic product for little ones and their gloves/ mittens!
Katrina on 15 October 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!
Elizabeth Carpenter on 15 July 2014
Extremely useful & innovative item
JennyD on 25 February 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.
Julie Greig on 18 February 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.
Aimee Lowe on 13 February 2014
These certainly do the trick. Way way too long for young children though. I tie it at the back.
Sarah on 13 February 2014
Really good item. Strong grips that hold well and long enough string. So good I bought 2!
Laura on 22 January 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.
Katie on 17 January 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.
Stacy on 03 January 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.
Debbie Christian on 14 December 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!)
Louise on 10 December 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.
Grace on 03 December 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.
Halina Szulakowska on 02 December 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!
Emma Child on 02 December 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.
lottie on 27 November 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
Carol on 25 November 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
Sarah on 24 November 2013
Fantastic idea for keeping mittens close to young children, as mine always loose theirs. You can adjust the string acordingly. Great purchase!
Lisa Wickes on 23 November 2013
Can't be without this. Tried own version with elastic but not as nice as proper thing!
Justine on 10 November 2013
Poor - too long, ied a knot in the middle but 20 month old could easily undo clips and pull mittens off string - save you money and buy some elastic,
Mrs O on 14 October 2013
Does job well. A bit long for my tall 2yr old.
Sarah Knott on 03 October 2013
Received very quickly. Easy to attach. String is long. My son is 20 months. But I just tied a knot in the middle. Does the job!
J peacock on 30 March 2013
Idea is great but String too long to use for my 3 yearold and not adjustable
Teresa Regel on 27 January 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.
Sammy on 17 January 2013
They are brilliant , I've not lost a pair of gloves since purchasing. The strings a wee but long but it's not a problem!
Sue Crozier-Welch on 03 January 2013
I bought two of these for grandson and nephew, unfortunately one has arrived broken and will be returned, the other was OK, but looking at them, the quality is poor for the cost.
Janet on 03 January 2013
Hurray! No more sewing on of elastic. If the string is too long, just knot it, people.
Lauren on 31 December 2012
Excellent purchase - really fast and they actually work!
Karen Mahalla on 27 December 2012
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!
Beth on 25 December 2012
Great item! Very good quality! No more lost mittens!
Jayne Eaton on 25 December 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!
Fiona on 19 December 2012
Very useful - the elastic is very long so tie a little knot in it. Brilliant for both my 3 and 4 year olds.
Kelly on 14 December 2012
Solved the long string problem with a knot, and the clips are quite secure. A good product
Amanda on 14 December 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.
Kate on 12 December 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 :(
Vesela on 11 December 2012
I'm very happy with this product
Eve on 11 December 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.
Lynn Maharaj on 07 December 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.
Karen on 05 December 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.
Katie on 03 December 2012
Good at keeping mittens from being lost but the elastic was too long and even when we tried to tie a knot in it it was still too Longford my little boy
Kate on 03 December 2012
Lovely soft warm gloves, our daughters first pair but she's doing well at keeping them on !!
fran wall on 03 December 2012
great buy this is the 2nd time i have bought these 1 for each child great invention!!
Laura Wilson on 01 December 2012
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
Hannah on 29 November 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!
Beth on 29 November 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.
June Barrett on 28 November 2012
Invaluable for keeping mittens on. Very good.
Dee on 28 November 2012
So handy! Stops me from worrying that my little monkey has thrown his gloves away! :-)
Kath Woodman on 19 November 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)!!
Louise Nickless on 17 November 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!
Susan Suttle on 14 November 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.
Janice mcnaught on 09 November 2012
I bought this two days ago and the plastic has broke already on one the clips!!! Thought it would have lasted longer than that. Now stitched the mittens to the elastic string
Emma Alder on 06 November 2012
Fabulous idea, although the cord is slightly too long and had to be tied!!
mrs ann sturley on 06 November 2012
great new product based on an old favourite. Saves having to replace lost mittens
Helsie on 03 November 2012
never again will we lose mittens on our trips out, a life saver!
Jayne on 01 November 2012
These are great, a definite must have for winter
Jane on 28 October 2012
Useful, but rather long for my 7 month old.
Sue Saha on 26 October 2012
A must-have for toddlers and kids starting school.
jan cox on 16 October 2012
What can I say, they do what they are supposed to do and very well, no more lost mittens.
C Regan on 15 October 2012
Great for little ones, keeps the mittens on my little 6month old!! Would def buy these again!
Charlie Ball on 13 October 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
Mila on 04 October 2012
Haven't used it yet but do like the idea, I always had my mittens on a string when I was little but it wasn't as cute!
Viktoria Zengay on 04 October 2012
very good idea for my 3 years old daughter!
Louise mcintosh on 03 October 2012
Love this a great idea however as other reviewers have said the string is long but I'd rather it be too long than too short
Suzanne Heathcote on 06 January 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.
Jess Layton on 07 December 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.
magda on 01 November 2011
Love it. No more lost gloves.
Kay on 10 September 2011
These are great we didnt lose any mittens last year. Just be aware that some schools and nurseries do not allow them. The the short ones which attach to the coat sleeves are good too.
Sarah green on 23 November 2010
Love this product so much, the clips are easy to attach to gloves and hold them really well. I only wish I had bought them for my first son!
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
Unfortunately we are unable to deliver this item to UNITED KINGDOM.
