JOJO MAMAN BEBE Snowsuits

Like if this guide is helpful

JoJo Maman Bebe snowsuits are great! Both the fleece ones and the fleece lined waterproof ones. They are very well made and wear extremely well. There are fab designs for both boys and girls.
 
They are expensive to buy new due to their quality and popularity; they sell for a good price second-hand too due to this.
 
Polar Fleece Snowsuits:
 
These allow full movement whilst being exceptionally worm but not at all bulky, and are lightweight. They have 2 long zips for ease of dressing and un-dressing. Peaked hood. On the baby sizes (0-18m) they have fold over hand and feet (so gloves and booties are not required). Older designs have the fold over hands and feet on all sizes so check first if buying second-hand as having these on the larger sizes is really useful – why JoJo stopped providing this feature on the larger sizes is a mystery!
 
These only go up to size 2-3 but this size (as are the others) quite generous and my daughter was in hers still when 4 !!  These are now available in the following sizes: 0-3m, 3-6m, 6-9m, 9-12m, 12-18m, 18-24m & 2-3yrs. As I said the sizes are normally quite generous even allowing for the fact that they are supposed to go over normal clothes. Older designs came in 6-12m rather than the 6-9 & 9-12m sizing but the 6-12m ones are perfect for those ranges too.
 
It is common to see these in the school playground on a younger child doing the school run often over pyjamas!
 
The super cosy thermal fleece is breathable with a water repellent finish. It is also machine washable (stated at 30deg but I’ve always washed them at 40deg with absolutely no problem!), very quick drying and non-pilling.
 
The all-in-one design allows full unrestrictive movement.
 
Buying one second-hand – what to look for:  There are now numerous designs available; the older ones for example. The pink, candy stripe, light blue  and the original rainbow design ones are definitely thinner than later designs even allowing for wear! But they are still great. But look out for discoloured trim (eg on the cuffs and feet) as this is very common. Also look out for inadequate stitching at the neck. These older designs were notorious for poor quality at the neck in some cases.
 
Waterproof fleece lined All-in-Ones (snowsuits)
 
Don’t confuse these with the non-lined pack-away versions in the same/similar designs! These are more like traditional snowsuits and thus bulkyer than the just-fleece ones as they have a waterproof outer. These are fully waterproof (via tapered seams) with a cosy fleece lining. They also come in lots of lovely designs. They have 2 long zips with one completely undoing at the leg. They are perfect for a child in a backpack, buggy or just walking and  playing.
 
These are now available in the following sizes: 0-3m, 3-6m, 6-9m, 9-12m, 12-18m, 18-24m & 2-3yrs. The sizes are normally quite generous even allowing for the fact that they are supposed to go over normal clothes. Older designs came in 6-12m rather than the 6-9 & 9-12m sizing but the 6-12m ones are perfect for those ranges too.
 
Buying one secondhand – what to look for:  You’d have thought that since these are quite expensive new that anyone buying one would take good care of it but sadly this isn’t always true! Due to the colourful designs they are often used but then not washed before selling on, presumably the seller doesn’t bother to check very well for marks,  so always check these thoroughly when they arrive as they are often dirty! These are also often sold as ‘new without tags’ on Ebay even though it is obvious that it has been worn but not washed (easy signs are flattened fleece inside and even dried dribble inside!).
 
I have been selling second-hand (and new) joJo Maman Bebe Snowsuits and other Jojo items for more than  5 years now on Ebay. I am a very  trusted seller of these items on Ebay. I have buyers who come back to me time after time for the next size up as they know they will get a great second-hand product in great condition with excellent customer service.
