Miracle hoodieI have to share that this hoodie was a blessing to our family last school year. My 6 year old son is mildly autistic and has sensory processing disorder, he cannot tolerate ANY longsleeves or coats of any texture/ material. As much as we love winter months, we also dread it every year because of the fact that my son goes through the entire season in short sleeves (yes, even on ice cold, freezing days) due to his sensory issues. We had tried soooo many coats, jackets, hoodies, long sleeves, and nothing had worked for us, until we came across this marshmallow hoodie. The minute we tried it on him he slipped right into it! It was the ONLY hoodie he wore all year because it was the ONLY hoodie he was able to tolerate and feel comfortable in. We treasure this hoodie and I am purchasing again (2 of them) for this school year. Hanna Andersson, please keep this hoodie coming every year. You have made our son very warm on cold days! :)

Love these!We have an embarrassingly large collection of these! A true FAVORITE, but I'm disappointed that this didn't come in a cotton lined version (it used to). We have gotten so many people addicted to these and converted many non believers (many friends that prefer cheap over quality...the horror haha). Definitely worth the buy, no question!

So Soft!My stepson loved it. The only difference I missed from the girls is the elastic waistband at the bottom. That was nice and allowed me to size up with my stepdaughter's so it will last longer. Overall it will be great and he really likes how soft it is!

Sad. This is not the original Marshmallow HoodieAbout 9 years ago I bought a marshmallow hoodie for my first child. It was the most wonderful soft, cushy, stretchy hoodie ever. I bought it a little big and my son wore it until he was 5 yrs old. He loved it so much but by the time I went to order him another one they were no longer being made and sold. Then I had my second child. He wore it too and loved it until he was almost 6. I actually had to put it away this year because he swore it still fit him and it didn't.. Such a quality piece of clothing to have lasted almost 10 years through two boys.
Every once in awhile I check the website to see if they might be being made again and I was so excited to see it! But I just received the two I ordered today and it is NOT made the same, I still have the old original one to compare. It is not as cushy, it is more "fleecy" and it doesn't seem as stretchy as the original either. I am so bummed. I am sure this is a quality garment considering who makes it. And it is a nice hoodie in the scheme of things but I never would have bought it if I thought it was not exactly the same. I honestly just don't have this kind of money for clothes these days. But this piece of clothing was so special, I had to make it happen.
I am not going to go through the hassle of returning them. They are still nice hoodies of course and I hope my boys will like them even a pinch as much as they liked the old one. But sadly they are not the magical hoodies they used to be and I can't even present them to my children as such. I thought this was a wonderful surprise for them and obviously my expectations were wrong. I feel the name shouldn't be the same for something that isn't the same, even when it is close. Or at least it should be mentioned that the process/item has changed in some way. For anyone who has been shopping at Hanna Anderson for a long time, these are not the wonderful old Marshmallow hoodies. This is the new version and in my eyes it is not an upgrade at all... Sorry for the bad review, we have always loved your clothing, it was just so incredibly disappointing after waiting all these years to see this hoodie again.
Again I am sure it is a wonderful quality hoodie for those who are interested in it, it is soft in its own way and I am keeping the hoodies. But for those that know the original version, just be warned it is not what it used to be.
