My son bites his nails so we got these gloves to keep him from biting. They are very expensive, but are incredibly soft and comfortable for him to use. He can also play on the iPad with th on, which is wonderful (touch screen). He is nearly 5, so they are disgusting by the end of the day. But do wash reasonably well. Only had them for a few weeks, so can't attest as to how long they last. But I had to get 7 pairs in order to not have to wash them everyday. So it got very expensive (especially since our Dollar is so low). Shipping took a few days, but the tracking information that was sent did not include info on when it will be delivered (pretty useless). The gloves themselves are nice and fit pretty well. The size 3-4 years are a bit long on my nearly-5- year old boy.
