by PickyMimi Boys Fleece PJs a Big Hit for 10 yr old Grandson!
Finding online quality fleece PJs for older boys (size 12-14) AND at a reasonable price is nearly impossible. How delighted I was to find LLBean's older boys fleece PJs and slippers!
My grandson absolutely loves these warm, comfortable pajamas and complementing LLBean fleece slippers! Sizing and quality of material and manufacturing is excellent. I just wish that LLBean had more than 1 style of fleece pajamas for older boys.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JAMJ2 Neck Too Tight
My son complained that the neck was too tight and he refused to wear them. They were a perfect fit, except for the neck. My son is very skinny, so the neck should have been fine. His younger brother is wearing the PJs. They are too big on him, but he doesn't complain about the neck being too tight. We have been buying the fleece Pjs for many years and this is the first time we have had a problem with the neck size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lizsss Cozy, but have design flaw!
My son says these are really cozy and super-comfortable. In fact he likes them so much he wants to keep them despite a major design problem, the hole for the head is extremely small. The trim around the head hole has no stretch whatsoever. They are pricey but seem of good quality. My son likes them a lot so we've decided to cut into the trim on the collar and see if that does the trick. We purchased size 14/16 for my small to average size 12-year-old son, so I don't think sizing up helps that issue. I think sizing runs true with the exception of the problem with the head hole!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Cmvm Neck opening to small
Loved the PJ's but could not get the top over My Grandson's head. He is only four and has a normal head. Opening on the top is way to small with no elasticity.
I am returning and extremely disappointed!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Catherine5 Neck opening too small
I originally ordered a size 5/6 for my 4 year old grandson. Could not get his head through the neck opening. Re-ordered the 6X/7 and his head goes through but was still a tight squeeze.... so we rolled the sleeves and pant legs up. At least he will get two years out of them. He loved them, though, and didn't want to take them off. Just hope they don't shrink.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Debnev Neck opening too small!
They are soft and feel comfy, but the neck opening would not fit over the head of my 7-year-old grandson, and his head is not noticeably large. The material around the neck has no give whatsoever, so there's no stretch. I hated to have return them, but that's what I had to do. I see a number of other complaints about this same problem going back more than a year, so LL Bean knows about this but continues to sell these. I am disappointed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JJMother Small hole for head
Size 8 arrived and there was absolutely no way my son could get his head into the pajama top. He does have a large head but the hole was very small and had virtually no give. I have bought smaller size versions of this pajama and he had no trouble getting into it. The only reason that it got a two rating rather than a one is because of past experience with the product. If your child has a large head, at least in size 8, avoid this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by maria1125 GREAT PJs MINUS top opening
This would be the PERFECT PJ all kids should own. However, my son couldn't fit his head through the top. I ordered it, despite having read this in other reviews. I did cut the opening a bit in the front so my son wouldn't cry when putting it on. Seriously, LLBean should read these reviews and fix the problem with these pjs. My son wears an 8, but we did a 10-12 size and it's perfect (minus the head opening).

My son is 12 and 5'6" - We have a hard time to find PJs in stores to fit him. I started shopping for PJs online a couple years ago and LLBean was able to fit his needs. They are comfy and fit him wonderfully. The quality is far more then a 5 star.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MeMyselfI MY SON LOVES THESE
Would give 5 of 5 if top was sized bigger.
This is our 2nd year purchasing LLBean's microfleece PJS. My 11 year old outgrew the Carters ones and he liked the plain, non-logo-ed, non-charactered pjs. They look and feel great-even the ones that are 2 years old. My son wears them almost all year around (camping in the summer). The top runs a size small. My son was the 3rd shortest/smallest kid in his grade Iast year and boderlines on wearing slim sizes, so he is not a moose. I ordered 2 sizes the first year used bottoms of 10-12 and tops from14-16. This year bought 18-20 for tops-which leads me to suggestions: maybe a raglan cut sleeve instead of inset sleeve to provide more size flexibility. We love blue as a base and mix tops with it which was harder to do this year because true navy was used last year and the blue used this year was more of a royal. Navy/green, navy/red, navy/royal or maybe fall sports team colors?
