Just curious. Looking at woolies for this winter....

Is it worth it to buy the woolies at a toy garden which top and bottom would be probably 60$ with shipping and Tax (im in ca) or should i just go with the ruskovillas somewhere else for a few bucks more?

Any reviews of the ones at toy garden?

I bought a onesie from ATG last year b/c they were the cheapest. This year, I am buying Ruskovilla. The arms were too short and the body developed a small hole after being worn for only one season. I only machine washed it at the end of the season, too, so I dont know how the hole got there. So, I dont know anything about Ruskovilla, but Im trying them instead this time

They are soft, but the arms are too short and I felt like they were a little thin.
I got some tops from www.nordicwoollens.com and was very happy with them. It says now they are Ruskovilla, I am pretty sure ours were from Engel.

I haven't ever purchased any bottoms because my boys wear longies.

I prefer the Ruskovilla ones. The arms were also too short on our ATG tops, and a couple of our tops also have a small hole or two. The Ruskovillas have held up much better, and the fit is great! I have only had bottoms from Ruskovilla, and they are the longie ones. They are nice because they come up really high on the tummy, and aren't at all scratchy, but they seemed kind of thin- compared to Aristocrat longies.

I really like A Toy Garden for a lot of things, but I've found the woolens that she carries tend to be thin. (great for the camisole for my older dd, not great for my boys).

Ruskovilla really are the sturdiest woolens I've found. Depends on the age of your dc, but on the long bottoms the knees are reinforced which is necessary in our house.
