My 8 yo daughter has always been very picky. Seams bother her, socks are a nightmare, no long sleeves or layers of any kind. I was going to order the Seacamp because they're less chunky than the Newport, but my daughter wanted the tie die pattern of the Newport. They arrived today, and I had to coax her to try them on (not a good sign). To my delight, she immediately said she loves them and wore them around the house for the next couple of hours. We have a winner! Fingers crossed that she doesn't grow out of them before summer, as its early March.
