Thinking of buying rain boots for my toddler

Is it worth it? Do they really need/wear these? I found some cute ones for 34.00, is that a good price? they were thomas the train.

  • my son L O V E S his rainboots! he wants them on all the time even if we are just indoors lol. They are good to have in case it pours and since they are wee ones, thats less soggy socks! $34 is a tad high though. I found a pair for $1.50 at the local thrift store but that was just luck lol. He is outgrowing them so we will have to most likely pay full price. :(

  • DS loves his. He loves that he can put them on all by himself! I bought some that were a size too big, although since we're going into winter, that's a judgment call.

  • We did the frog rain boots at target as well. Just make sure he tries them on first, as sometimes the taller boot are hard to walk in, if they have short legs and big feet.

  • I struggled with this same thing but my DS LOVES's also nice because they can put them on theirselves...Target is def. cheapest or look @ a second hand store...$35 is a bit pricey...

  • I, too, was considering buying my toddler rainboots...but wasn't sure if he would indeed wear them. They have them at Target, as a previous post already mentioned, far cheaper than 34.00. They're so cute! They had Paul Frank, fire truck theme ones at the Target in my area. I think I'm going to buy them, you all convinced me! Ha!

  • Thomas stuff is always more expensive but if that's what your child likes, it'll definitely be worth it. They'll want to wear them even when it's not raining. i don't have kids yet but I worked at a children's store and I saw kids wearing them on sunny days in the summer :) It's the cutest thing ever!!!!
