    I snagged this for my son as soon as I saw it hit shopDisney's site — I am a Disney Adult at heart if nothing else. It's very thick, soft, and will definitely keep him warm in the winter months. I'm thinking about having him wear it on Christmas Day!

    I received a sample of this sweater for my baby and, OMG, it is unreal how soft it is. It's probably nicer than most sweaters in my own closet!

    Promising review: "This is adorable and will be perfect for the holiday season! It fits true to size and is a nicer outfit for a toddler. It's three pieces so it is perfect for mixing and matching to create other outfits. It really looks like an outfit for a guy of any age, just shrunk down for a baby. The pants pull on, but the shirt is a button down and the half-zip looks great. It's a really cute outfit, seems comfortable enough, and best of all it can all be thrown in the washing machine! It's a great set for the price." —cbagwell
