Polaris Mini Hoolie Glove, £18, www.polaris-apparel.co.uk

The Hoolies certainly provide good warmth when out in near zero degree temperatures. The gel padded palm area is comfortable, while silicon print grips give the wee one added control over steering and brakes. The gloves cover the wrists nicely in all riding positions and they don’t slip. The hi-vis colour and reflective detail really stands out from the front as well as when giving hand signals, but they are available in black with hi-vis details which may be better for everyday use. Considering how often your child is likely to use the gloves and how easily kids’ gloves are lost, the price might put some people off.

PROS: good fit, grip and padding
CONS: price
