Smart Knit Kids - Review & Giveaway
After working in the field of early childhood education for over 10 years I have seen my share of children who have gotten frustrated by itchy tags on clothing, as well as strings and seams in socks. I know sometimes these things bother me, so I can imagine how a child could feel. Especially a child with Autism, Aspergers Syndrome, or with Sensory Processing Disorder, as I know from working with children who have these disorders that sensory problems with clothing can exist.
I am grateful that my children do not have sensory problems, but because I know people whose children do, I love the idea of these socks a lot!
So when I was approached by SmartKnit Kids to review their socks, I was so excited! Thank you to Rose Penner for sending me four pairs of socks for my daughters to try out! We received a complimentary pair of white (2) pink and purple socks for the purpose of review and to host a giveaway.
About SmartKnit Kids:
Tired of hearing her son scream “these sock seams keep bugging me,” a mom decided something needed to be done. Every “seamless” sock her son tried had seams in it; there was not a truly seamless sock available. After explaining the frustrating morning routine to countless friends of her son’s struggles with socks, she was finally given the name of Knit-Rite, a textile manufacturer, and contacted them with her request for a seamless kids sock.
After several requests for seamless socks from "desperate" parents, SmartKnitKIDS socks were created. Knit the same way a caterpillar spins its cocoon, SmartKnitKIDS socks are started at the toe and worked up toward the ankle. This process insures a 100% seamless sock, so there are no seams to bug ya! A form-fitting design also keeps those annoying lumps and bumps out of the socks.
Since its launch in 2003, SmartKnitKIDS continues to find new markets and grow every year. Super soft material and a seam free design make it the most comfortable kid’s sock on the market.
SmartKnitKIDS come in a color for every personality: white, black, pink, purple, and navy. Ankle, crew and knee-high styles are available up to a youth size 8.
Knit-Rite, Inc. is a leading designer, marketer, and manufacturer of innovative textiles for medical and consumer markets. Founded in 1923, Knit-Rite remains committed to the continued research and development, manufacturing and distributing of products that deliver healthy benefits for a better quality of life.
SmartKnitKIDS™ Socks are made with high-tech ﬁbers that wick moisture away helping ensure a drier and more hygienic sock environment. They are also anti-microbial, inhibiting fungal odor-causing bacteria.
Our non-binding Halo Top™ fits comfortably without slipping down the leg.Regular socks often have elastic bands at the tops of the sock that can often pinch, bind or be a source of irritation.
Corespun yarns using Lycra and form-ﬁtting design result in children's socks that “hug” the foot reducing wrinkling and bunching.
These are great! My daughter loves how soft they are and I love that there is nothing to bug her! No seams, no strings, nothing! The company logo is on the bottom of the sock and that is the only indication of where the bottom of the sock is. I love that there is no heel, that way the socks will last sooo much longer. I love the way the sizing was perfect for my children's feet. The handy sizing chart on the website will help you in determining your child's sock size so they have the perfect fit! I also love the fact that they wash so well. I have been using the SmartKnit Kids Seamless socks for a couple weeks now and they have been washed a ton (my daughter wants to wear "the soft, squishy socks" all the time) and are still so soft to the touch!
I highly recommend these socks especially for any parents of children with sensitivities to clothing. But I also recommend them to all parents! Great idea for Christmas Stocking Stuffers!
