WeeDo Funwear perfectly blends the worlds of function and fashion with their extremely well-built, insulated and waterproof snowsuits. Your kiddo will highly visible and toasty warm on the slopes or in the backyard.
The suits come in 10 different fun designs and are available in size 18 months to 10 years.

The TMM team (and our kids) are so thrilled to test these suits out. While the suits do not come with mittens, we knew our unicorns needed hooves, and monsters needed claws, so we ordered the matching mittens too.
And since it’s almost Halloween, and we wear masks every day (thanks a lot, COVID-19), we tested out the WeeDo facemasks too. They’re fun and only a little bit spooky!
The WeeDo Story
Founded & Run by a Mom
Here at TMM, we are all about supporting other moms, which is just one of the many reasons we LOVE WeeDo Funwear.
WeeDo was founded in Germany by Antje, who describes herself as a mother, tailor, manager and doer. She is in charge of everything from design to production, and she combines her creativity and love of all things fantasy, with a passion for sustainability.
Amelia got to met Antje and the WeeDo team back in January and was very impressed with their commitment to kids and families.
Something else we are passionate about is protecting our environment. We are thrilled that not only are the WeeDo snowsuits BlueSign approved, but they also feature:
- Materials that are free of PVC and other harmful substances
- Synthetic fabrics made from recycled bottles
- Plastic shipping wrap that is made from cornstarch
- Production that is Fair Trade certified
- Hyperloft insulation (100% recycled)
- Waterproof (10k) & breathable (5k)
- Reflective accents
- Helmet compatible, adjustable hood
- Adjustable foot width (wider for ski boots, narrower for snowboard)
- Hook in the leg for snowboard boots
- Zippered waist for easier potty breaks
- Ski pass pocket, hand pockets and inner chest pocket
- Reinforced fabric & extra padding in the knees, elbows & butt
Features We Love
Extra Padding In All The Right Spots
As snowboarders, my kids spend a lot of time sitting on their butts or kneeling. So I especially appreciate the extra hyperloft insulation and reinforcement in the butt, knees, and elbows.
The extra insulation helps them bounce back up after those inevitable falls. And the reinforced fabric will hold up to the butt slides down the sledding hill, rolling around in the snow, scooting on their knees…whatever your kid can dish out!
Entire Snowsuit is Insulated
My very first impression as I pulled the suit out of the box was wow, this thing is heavy (but still easy to move in)! It just feels like a really solid suit. My kids have worn all kinds of one-piece snowsuits and this is definitely the warmest one we’ve tried.
Having a hood that can easily fit over a helmet just adds to the warmth, and the fun factor.
WeeDo’s matching mittens (sold separately from the snowsuits) are highly insulated, waterproof, they come up high on the forearm, and best of all? They clip on to the sleeves.
Adjustable Grow System
When I shell out the big bucks on gear, I want to make sure I get more than one year out of it. So I was happy to discover the Grow System.
There are 3 snaps on both sides of each arm, and each leg. The snaps allow you to progressively adjust the sleeve and/or pant lengths, which extends the wear time.
Lots of snowsuits have a grow system, but it usually requires cutting an internal seam, which makes it permanently bigger. I like that with the snap system, nothing is permanent.
A Note On Sizing
WeeDo suits do run a little big. To choose the correct size, make sure you look closely at their size chart and measure your child’s height before buying!
My daughter, who is 4.5 years old, 38″ tall and in 4T clothing wears the size 2-4 WeeDo suit. Remember that the Adjustable grow system DOES give you more flexibility on the sizing, but these suits work best when they fit correctly (and not too big).
Built In Suspenders
WeeDo’s 2020 line of snowsuits come with a built in pair of suspenders.
Typically when kids get hot in a onesie you have to pull down the entire top half, and tie it around the waist.
But with these suspenders, you can pull arms out of the sleeves for a quick, easy cool off. They also come in handy at lunch time to keep food and hot coco drips off the suit.
We love that WeeDo currently has ten different designs to choose from for kids. From a monkey to a cheetah to an astronaut, they have a wide variety of choices for everyone. The photos below show just a few of them. Check out the rest of the WeeDo designs here.
The Potty Zipper
I saved this one for last because it’s my favorite feature.
No more sleeves dragging on the disgusting, wet restroom floors. And no more freezing kids while I peel down the top of their suit so they can go potty outside in the woods.
Just one simple zipper around the waist of the suit, and voila, potty breaks simplified!
My kids arms aren’t long enough to reach around and unzip it by themselves, but I figure I can always unzip it before they go into the restroom (if i’m not accompanying them).
As a kid growing up in the 80’s, my mom would tie a string of yarn to my mittens and feed the yarn up my sleeves into my jacket.
WeeDo has modernized this technique. All their mittens have a clip that attaches to the sleeve of the snowsuits. No more coming home with just one mitten!
These are a high-loft insulated mitten, but they are still easy to move around in.
WeeDo also makes these fun masks in both kid and adult sizes! I have been wearing my green monster mask at work, and it definitely makes people smile. It feels lightweight and breathable.
What I Don’t Love
High Shipping Cost
WeeDo suits are made in Germany, and currently there are no US or Canada retailers, which means the buyer pays the hefty shipping cost. That said, WeeDo does subsidize the cost (otherwise it would be outrageous).
For example, the Unicorn suit costs $240, and the shipping is an additional $30.
Features We’d Love To See Added
I’d love it if there were 1 or 2 additional grown snaps on the suit. I just think that for this price, I want to make sure I get 2 seasons out of it.
Currently there are 3 snaps, for a total adjustability of 2.5″, but adding another 1″ would be nice.
The Bottom Line
The bottom line is we are impressed with the suits. They features are well thought out, the design is loud and fun, and they seem warm and durable.
And my daughter has given me ZERO trouble when I ask her to put on her snow clothes. Getting her to take it off when we come back inside is another story.
We agree that these suits are expensive. But TMM was able to secure an EXCLUSIVE discount code just for our followers. Believe me when I say you won’t find this deal anywhere else.
