Winter time here on Long Island will be here before we know it, complete with our share of cold weather and snow. We’ll all be out there shoveling and digging our cars out and our kids will be loving the school snow days and playing outside. If you haven’t done your shopping for winter coats, hats, gloves and boots, get out soon and do it – you don’t want to be out there the night before the first blizzard searching and searching for winter gear!
Over 125 years ago, Samuel Rothschild, an immigrant peddler, sold coats to workers in Pennsylvania from his horse-drawn cart. As S. Rothschild, and now Rothschild Kids, the company is still combining style, quality and practicality as a leader in children’s outerwear with sizes for boys and girls from infant to pre-teen.
We recently had an opportunity to review a Rothschild Kids jacket (Winter Active Racer Jacket for Boys) and were very impressed with everything from the comfort and style of the jacket to the history and actions of the company. It’s cool looking and the colors are very boy-ish (thumbs up from my 7 year old son) and it’s warm and solidly made (thumbs up from mom). With two outside pockets that zip closed and two additional pockets (1 inside, 1 outside) that velcro closed, little boys will not be worried about losing their “stuff”. It’s a little bit longer than most winter jackets I’ve seen for boys (it falls mid-hip) which will be nice on those really super cold days. The fleece lined hood zips off easily and one thing I really liked was that when the hood is attached, the zipper is well hidden. The fleece and quilted lining will definitely keep kids warm, and the jacket is machine washable, which is always a must. The size small (size 8) jacket was a little big on my son, but this jacket will definitely last him two seasons, and with a retail value of $65, it’s very fairly priced.
