Babylegs, Huggalugs, and Skidpants review and giveaway!

Who doesn't love a pair of baby leg warmers? I sure love them. I got the chance to try out 3 different brands, Babylegs, Skidpants, and Huggalugs. These were all 3 wonderful products. I always get asked what are those and where did you get them when I am out and about.

BabyLegs ... Tides Organic (shown)
-Make diaper changes a breeze
-Protect soft knees from harsh surfaces
-Keep legs warm year round
-Provide light weight sun protection
-Make EC'n & potty training easier
-Jazz up any dance class
-Make a fun fashion statement with styles for every occasion.
-Feet remain free to allow for successful crawling, walking, and dancing.
BabyLegs also help keep socks on! They fit most kids from newborns to size 10 - BabyLegs will warm your little ones for a long time. They're fun to use as arm warmers too!

Skal Certified Cotton. Oko-Tex Standard 100 dyes.80% organic cotton, 12% nylon, 8% spandex.

These babylegs are SOOOO soft. I love these because they make diaper changes so easy, and if your son is like mine it is a nightmare to change a diaper. He dislikes it very these make it much faster for me. I have been really wanting to try the Organic ones...and I just love them...I am telling you these are so soft!

Skidpants - Sour Apple (shown)
These were Created by a mom when her son began to crawl to protect his little legs from "skid marks" (otherwise known as rug burn). From this, Skid Pants were born. Skid pants provided protection for his little legs and still gave him the freedom to move and continue to learn that long pants often didn't provide. Skid Pants are a great way to keep those precious legs safe and warm. Cotton/Spandex blend, approx 16" in length.

Out of the 3 different types of warmers these were my favorite. I loved the bright colors and how they fit Ethan. Just look how cute these are. I also liked them becasue they were really long, my son has long legs and they covered them well.

One of the most frequent questions they get is what is the difference between the different brands of baby leg warmers. The three main brands are Huggalugs, SkidPants by Dittany Baby, and BabyLegs.

Age Range: All brands are one size fits most. According to BabyLegs, they work for kids up to age 10 (except the Vermont organics, those are up to age 4).

Huggalugs say they work for kids up to age 6.

Skidpants are the longest, but don't give an age range. Length: The photo to the left shows the original version of each brand of baby leg warmer.

The SkidPants are the longest, followed by BabyLegs, then Huggalugs. BabyLegs also makes an XL and SuperSoft version, which are just slightly shorter than the SkidPants.

Fabrics: The original version of each brand is a cotton/spandex blend, very similar in feel and function.

SkidPants also has a lightweight version, which is made of 100% nylon, similar to nylon tights. These are great for warmer climates and summer time.

BabyLegs also has an organic line. Most of the organics are very similar to their originals, except the Vermont made ones. Those fit a bit smaller. BabyLegs SuperSofts are made of a very soft polyester, and feel luxurious.

Pricing: Base price for all the brands is $12. Organics, Supersoft, and Lightweights cost a bit more, as do the XL version of BabyLegs. Accessories: Huggalugs makes matching organic t-shirts that coordinate with a handful of their legwarmers.

Huggalugs - Deepest Navy (shown)

  1. Thanks for the great reviews. I have always wondered how the different brands compare. We have babylegs and they are a bit on the short side for my 3 year old niece. I would love to give the skidpants brand a try. The lightweight style looks interesting.

  2. I've never tried baby legwarmers before, I hope I win!! thanks for the review!

  3. Love love LOVE Babylegs! My son wears his Pirate themed legs all the time under jeans when it gets "colder" (we're in AZ so it doesn't get that cold!) and in the summer he toddles around with the "legs" on and a diaper and a T-shirt...perfect summer baby attire!

  4. I have been using babylegs since my daughter was born 2 years ago. My son is 10 months and is so chunky he can't fit in them, so I would love to try a different brand or the xl babylegs.

  5. I have heard so many good things about these. I would love them for my baby.

  6. Before this post I had only heard of the babylegs, so it is great to hear about the other products! All sound great for different reasons. My little girl will be 18 months this weekend and would LOVE a pair of any of these! They would look great under all these summer skirts that we have yet to wear! Thanks for the great review!

  7. I love now knowing the difference between the three brands. I have only ever tried baby legs!

  8. I have only tried the babylegs. I love them. Thanks for explaining the difference between the 3 brands..Makes deciding which ones to buy a lot easier!
