The Kids have just started their second week at school and they love it. For us, the day starts at 6:45am and our morning routine determines the mood for the day. One of the ways that we keep the stress down is by is by being organized. For us, lists are a huge asset. I might even have lists of lists.
Until today, I thought that I had captured everything that I needed on at least one of my lists; backpack, paint smock, extra pair of shoes, rain gear and lunch accessories to name a few. That was until we woke up this morning to rain clouds and puddles on the ground and I realized that while I had checked rain boots off my list, I hadn’t checked their rain coats and Max’s was too small. Note that this picture does not do the raincoat justice in that it looks like it fits him.
Speaking of rain boots, there are always lots of opportunities for The Kids to wear their new Stonz Rain Bootz and it doesn’t necessarily involve rain! Like when we were up at The Farm and we shovelled manure, poured a cement bottom in the old grain bin and of course when it rained. In our family, they’re a multi-purpose boot. If the name Stonz sounds familiar that’s because this is the second pair of rainboots that The Kids have had.
As with the last time, I ordered the boots in a size bigger and added some insoles so that The Kids weren’t tripping. Getting them a bit bigger helps me save by getting an extra season out of them and keeps The Kids happy longer because they’re sad when they outgrow things they really like. They got to pick the colours out for themselves and with 7 vibrant colours to choose from, it wasn’t hard. Of course Artemis chose pink and Max (who wants to be a fireman for Halloween for the third time) chose yellow.
Stonz is a Canadian company that was born in 2004. Since that time, many different products have been added such as Stonz Booties, Mittz, Hatz, Linerz and of course their All-Natural Rain Bootz available in sizes Toddler 4 to Youth 4. The boots are PVC-free, phthalate-free, lead-free and formaldehyde-free, however, they’re durable and tear resistant while still remaining flexible and comfortable. Not only do they keep your kids feet dry and safe but they’re stylish too!
Sold in stores such as Nordstrom and SportCheck you can also purchase them online at companies like Zappos.com as well as Stonz website. Free shipping in Canada and the USA (Alaska & Hawaii) with orders over $70CDN.
Another great quality about Stonz is that they give back to their community by donating products to those in need. As a consumer, I like to spend my money where it can make the most difference; not only for me but also others as well. Speaking of giving, Stonz would like to give one of my readers the chance to own a pair of their rain boots! Good Luck.
