These are my favorite knee pants - hands down... everyone included! You may think that these are expensive, but these knee pants will last you for YEARS and years! My daughter is 6 years old and still wearing the size 2! Remember there is a point where kids just grow UP! And this beautiful gingham fabric, they ALWAYS look great... easy summer comfortable gingham, wash in cool/line dry - made in USA - I would suggest to buy close to the age on these knee pants, they run big but you can fold down the waist for the first year and then they just keep going... and going ... and going!
