I have a very active 5-year-old son that plays so hard that he puts HOLES in the knees of his pants! Does any other Mom have this problem? Out of 10 pair he has managed NOT to tear 1, and believe me that pair is very thin in the knees. My question- is there any particular brand of jeans or pants that are more durable than others? I typically buy Levi, Old Navy, & Gap brands. I would like to know so that when I start buying him pants for the fall I know what to look for. I wouldn't mind paying a little more for them if they will hold up. Reply if you have any advice.

We're members of KidVantage Club through Sears. In addition to receiving 15% off your next purchase everytime you spend $100 on kids clothes, they also guarantee that if your child's clothes wear out before they outgrow them, they'll replace them for free. And it's also free to join the club.

I haven't shopped there much in a while, but went there a few weeks ago and bought DD a pair of blue jean shorts, white jean shorts and a cute skort/shirt outfit for just over $30.00. And she's pretty hard to please.

They have a good selection of clothes and the prices aren't bad either. Sounds like something you might want to check out.

Good luck!

I don't know if I have welcomed you to the board yet or not, so let me do it now....WELCOME!!!! =) I hope you stay with us for a long while to come!

I LOVE Healthtex pants because they have a double inforced knee in their pants! GREAT DEAL!!! PLUS, if you buy them at Sears, like someone else mentioned, you can go through Kidvantage and replace them often at no extra cost to you. Good luck!!! =)
