Bought a pair of the purple for my daughter and so far so good with this extra cold weather we are having right now. She has no complaints and so neither do I!

If these are "waterproof", how would they get "soaked through"?
"This miniaturized version of Hestras adult alpine mitten features super-light PrimaLoft insulation for flexibility and warm loft even if soaked through."
If you continue to read the description, it indicates that these have a waterproof coating,which means this won't be an issue. That said, unless the gloves are goretex, eventually they will likely get wet if your kid is out all day - so the added warmth protection is a good backup.
While the fabric has a waterproof coating, the seams aren't sealed, meaning that water will slowly soak the mitten through the seams if it's in wet snow long enough. So yes it can get soaked through, but it will take a good deal of rolling around in the snow for this to happen.
We love Hestra Mittens
We have used Hestra mittens since my sons were 2 years old. They are excellent. They keep their hands dry and stay on very well. They also allow them some flexibility to grip the sled or build a snowman.
We tried lots of different mittens before finding Hestras.

Can you provide some type of metric regarding how well these mitts keep little hands warm? (Temperature, windchill, etc.)
It is hard to pin point since everyone has different Metabolisom. I have these Mitt for my daughter we live at 9000ft in Colorado. These seem to keep her hand warms and there are day where we don not get above 0. They do have a windproof waterprook lining so you should be block from those elememts.
Are these made in China? or Switzerland?...
Are these made in China? or Switzerland? I recently bought a pair of these from a ski shop and the size 7 was TINY and it said "Made in China" I was ANGRY and would like to buy a pair from you if they are indeed made in Switzerland. Thanks!
These are made in China.

tell me about the hestra sizing? i have a 6 year old
From the size chart: "Hestra gloves are measured using Length and Perimeter. Length: from the tip of the middle finger to the breaking point in the wrist where it joins the palm. Perimeter: Measure around the widest part of the hand, do not measure around the thumb."The size chart is true to what it reads.
