HoodieBuddie protects your kids’ hearing while keeping them warm

Your kids won’t be losing their earbuds with the HoodieBuddie jacket in kids sizes because they won’t need earbuds.  These jackets use HB3 technology to build audio technology directly in.  There’s a 3.5mm plug in a zipper pocket to plug in an MP3 player or phone and speakers in the hoodie.  Your kid can hear the music without blocking out ambient sounds and without you worrying about hearing damage from loud music from earbuds jammed into young ears.  The HoodieBuddies for kids are described as being for boys, but I’m hoping they just are using boys’ sizes for reference.  I think girls would like some of these designs just as much as boys – perhaps more than boys for some of the more colorful designs.  The jackets are sized for bigger kids (sizes 8 – 18) – not toddlers, by any means.  They are $26 to $48, depending on materials and design, with a Spiderman jacket being the most expensive.

    Just went to the site. They have adult ones too. But almost all the inexpensive materials and sizes are sold out. 🙁

    The adult sizes have earbuds instead of speakers in the hood, though.
