These are exactly what you think they are: the same stretchy gloves kids have been wearing since (probably) the 80s. For what they are, they're great: stretchy, reasonably soft, and nicely priced to keep one in the school backpack, one at home, and a spare in the car. Functional, but not a dealbreaker if they get lost. I appreciate the inclusion of black as a neutral in the otherwise "girly" set. Recommend.
