Maybe I bought a defective pair, I don't know, but these are the oddest pair of toddler jeans I've ever purchased. I made the mistake of taking the tags off and washing them before trying them on my daughter, otherwise I would have taken them back. The crotch area on these jeans is SO long, when wearing them it almost goes to her knees! I held them up to another pair of 2T jeans that we have, and the crotch area is quite a few inches longer! She can't walk right with it being so low, so she kind of waddles in them. In order for these jeans to fit correctly I'd have to hike them up to her chest! Needless to say, I feel like I wasted my money b/c I won't be putting them on her. Buyer beware...try them on first!
