Winter Wardrobe Shopping with Cookie’s Kids

I have been saying that I need to get a new jacket for our toddler for over a month but I just haven’t gotten around to it.  As the holidays approached I figured it would just get done in the Christmas shopping especially since more stores put them on clearance around this time.  The weather hasn’t been really cold so I have been using his ski vest and a light jacket and he’s been fine.  However some how his ski vest vanished and the search for a jacket got much more urgent.  I logged on to the Cookie’s Kids website.  I was immediately surprised about the prices. They had great prices and so many different options for parents to choose buy for their children.  I immediately clicked in the winter section and found my toddler’s size and started looking for jackets.  Here’s the two I settle on.

Cookies Kids Jackets

I couldn’t believe the great price on them.  The blue one that has a grey hoodie and sleeves I really liked because it looked like a sweatshirt and a ski vest in one.  It was only $9.99, and it’s a great value.  It not too heavy so he can wear it on the days when its not super cold and windy and its fits him perfectly.  The grey jacket with the red stripes is a much thicker jacket and it has a great fleece lining.  I got it a size bigger so we can really bundle him up in it and it has the velcro on the arms so you can adjust it to fit his wrist better.  This one was only $12.99, a great value.  I have seen similar jackets at kids clothing stores for double that amount.  I’ve been very impressed with my Cookie’s Kids winter clothes order.  J.B looks great in his new winter jackets.  Check him out.

I love this one on him so much.  The color looks really good on him and he is so comfy and warm in it.  He likes this one a lot.

As you can see they both fit him great and he is always ready to go once he has his jacket on.  He’s trying to pull up the zipper himself.  This one was perfect for the windy day we had yesterday and his hood helps keep his hat in place so he doesn’t keep taking it off.  Speaking of hats, I also picked up a hat and gloves set for my oldest son as well.  It has his favorite character on it Buzz Lightyear.

Yes he did forget about the gloves on the hat, he was just too excited about it having Buzz on it.  Another think I loved about shopping on the Cookie’s Kids website was the Alva Kids sizing tool.  If you are worried about shopping online because you can’t see the sizes of the clothes and you don’t want to get the wrong sizes, with this tool you don’t ever have to worry about that at all.  When shopping on the site and you click on an article of clothing, look for the Alva Kids icon.  It looks like this.

When you click on the tool a pop up appears for you to either register so anytime you are on the site all your child’s sizing information it at your finger tips.

You share information about your child and they tell you what size to choose in that item.  It refreshes and saves so the entire time you are shopping you have the correct size suggestions based on your input.  Now you don’t have to worry about buying the wrong sizes any more.

The History and Growth of Cookies Kids.

In 1972, a young man named Cookie and his brother Marvin went into business together. They rented a 1600 square foot store in Jamaica, Queens, fixed it up, bought inventory in Summer and Fall, and opened a day after Thanksgiving with a full stock of holiday toys. The toys were a success and they put the extra money toward buying children’s clothing for the next season. When that did well, they bought more clothing. The business was on it’s way.  As the brothers Cookie, Marvin and Sonny, who had come in as a third partner in the business, began to open new stores in new locations, inventory expanded. Besides the latest fashions, our customers wanted shoes, toys, backpacks and accessories and we were prepared to deliver.  By the late 1990’s there were six superstores throughout the NYC area, and though they previously had different names, by that time they were all named Cookie’s Kids. Also in the late ’90s came an important addition to Cookie’s Kids’ inventory: school uniforms. It was the steady success in uniform sales that paved the way for founding in 2007, which originally sold uniforms and soon after the entire Cookie’s Kids Inventory.

    I love the color of the jacket you picked out! Also, the gloves on the hat thing is funny – sounds like something I would do. :)
