Retailers that sell mitten clips include Amazon.com, eBay and Etsy, as of September 2015. They come in a variety of sizes, colors and styles. The basic design of a mitten clip consists of an elastic strap with both ends fitted with metal clips that clasp over each other.
The elastic strap on a mitten clip comfortably wraps over the mitten and around the child's wrist to keep the mitten in place. The straps are available with attractive, colorful patterns or kiddie characters such as penguins or Sesame Street or Disney characters. The clips can also have fancy toy-like covers, such as mouse heads, charms or a pacifier, in the case of infant mitten clips.
