when i opened the package of guavamitts i thought these were adorable, but thought they would be so much better in black and white. as i turned over the package, i saw that the mitts were reversible and had a black and white pattern on the inside... brilliant! these mitts are great. my son (3 1/2 months old) would not stop scratching up his face. i tried other mitts, but he would fling them off within seconds...they were too small and the elastic was not strong enough to keep them on his hands. we called him 'baby Scissorhands' because he could scratch numerous long gashes on his face in less than 30 seconds.then, i put socks on his hands, which worked, but just killed his rad little outfits. but, on the less superficial side, these mitts really do work and stay on. they're very soft and do not stink up like the socks did after my son put his covered hands in his mouth. i would definitely recommend this product. i'm looking forward to larger sizes and more patterns in black, red, and gray.
