It's for my husband's cousin's two boys. We only see them at Christmas, actually we didn't see them last year so we haven't even seen them since Oct 2005.
Whatever toy/movie we've got them in years past they have had-and made sure to tell us that they had it. So the monsters are getting clothes this year.

Probably a boys Medium.

I know this because in High School I worked in boys clothing at JC Penney.

And boy, were those things tight!!!

Thank you! Try the veal.

Very funny.

So is a medium like about an 8 if they're numbered sizes?

You considered asking their folks?

Yeah, if I remember correctly, a M is like 8-10 for a regular sized kid. If the kid is chunky or taller than average you might go with a large even.

It's better to go bigger since they can always grow into it.

Do you have any 19 year old Korean girlfriends to ask their size?

Can we please not bring logic into this thread? :p

I would ask their parents but I would have to get my dad-in-law to contact our aunt and then she would have to contact our cousin. It's just easier to pick all y'all's brains.;)

Thanks for the advice Tom :)

All I'm saying is kids love cash.

Every year, my brother takes my nephews shopping the day after Christmas. He never tried to seek out the perfect gifts for the little beggers since everyone else was already on that task. So from the time they each turned four, every Christmas he handed them each $100.00 to spend on whatever they wanted to get that they didn't get for Christmas. And then he put up with going to Walmart, Toys R Us, and the Mall on the day after Christmas, the man is fearless, and his sons were guaranteed to get exactly what they wanted.

Now that they are all teenagers even I give them cash for Christmas. The oldest wants clothes, the middle one is virtually impossible to shop for (nothing impresses him), and the youngest has reached the stage of being obsessed with Electronics and he already has all of the cool stuff.

Children that you don't see often enough to know their size or tastes wear gift certificates very well.

I still got it!

If comics don't pan out, there's always JC Penney.

I may not write comics (pout), but I know where you're coming from. I've worked for both Bugle Boy and Penney's and I can still look at a man and guess his jeans size.

Cue really bad innuendo . . .
