You’ve waged war against winter. And the first fight is getting Mr. Tantrumpants to put on his long johns.
Call for reinforcement from Tuff Cookie Clothing Co. The Cape Cod biz creates hats and coats (for newborns through age 5) that make dressing for the chilly season fun. Wacky styles include toppers with cloth monster teeth, floppy ears, or goofy braids. Find bear, elephant, and dinosaur designs adorning the coats.
Everything’s constructed from heavy-duty Malden Mills Polartec fleece.
It’s perfect for your little trooper.
