Protection and pizzazz for little hands

I know I owe you a winner from last week’s contest, and I promise to get to that later, but I wanted to get this contest up before I have to run out for a while. (These darn kids, man. So demanding! Drive me to the orthodontist, Mom. Feed me, Mom. Sheesh.)

Anyway! Check out what I got in the mail last week. No, not a baby (I think my husband might take issue with that sort of thing…). Check out the baby’s hands. He’s wearing GuavaMitts, from GuavaKids, which is so new that they’re only just getting set up online. (Until their site opens, you can check them out on Facebook and Twitter, if you’re so inclined.)

So you’re thinking… baby mitts. Big deal. But actually, these are a big deal. First, they’re made of bamboo and organic cotton. Nice! Second, they have velcro closures on the wrists, so that may make them the first baby mitts that baby can’t flail off his little hands. And finally, they’re reversible, with an eye-catching color print on one side and brain-stimulating black-and-white pattern on the other. The pair I have to give away has sort of a mod green print on one side, and black/white circles on the other.

Want to win ’em? Of course you do! First go review the contest rules and regulations, then come on back here and leave a comment on this post by 8:00 a.m. Eastern (that’s 5:00 a.m. Pacific) on Thursday, September 1st, 2011 for a chance to win. Winner to be determined by random number generation and how many scratches your poor baby has on his face already. But mostly the random number thing.


  1. Oooooh aaaaah

  2. oh, those are very cute!

  3. Awww no scratches yet as the baby has not decided to come out yet. But I am sure s/he will be born with plenty of fingernails to scratch him/herself.

    (PS to my baby: we are ready for you now… come out!)

    Thanks Mir!

  4. I’d love this for a friend who is pregnant! Baby showers are my excuse for continuing to purchase cute baby paraphernalia.

  5. My SIL is down to the “any day now” time, and I’d love to share these with her.

  6. Adooooooorable!!!!!! 🙂

  7. These look so cool! I am glad someone finally came up with a solution to this problem. None of the other alternatives work and I hate the poor little baby scratches on those cute faces.

  54. Would be great for a grandbaby I have.

  55. Very cute, count me in.

  56. I was going to say these would be great for all the baby gifts I’ve been needing lately, but then I saw comment #44 from Jen R – who was commenting with a 15 HOUR old baby – if she is reading wantnot 15 hours after giving birth – I say give them to her! 🙂

  57. The Baby totally needs this. Don’t make him/her cry!

  58. Very cute! Expecting our first child, a girl, this November. I’ll need some of these, right? 🙂

  59. That is my son in the pic so I have a little experience with these mitts…they truly are the best infant mitts ever! They do actually stay on and he loved moving his hands around looking at them. Great company with great morals behind everything they are doing! Good luck to all the people trying to win a pair! 🙂

  60. If I win, they will be put to GREAT use with my baby #4 due in November!

  61. Since I have the ultimate faith I will win, I am looking forward to getting these in time for the cold weather. Not for me, though LOL
