Recommend some cool kids' mittens (for a 5 year old)!!!

MITTENFILTER: I'm buying some mittens (requested) for a friend's kid, a 5 year old boy who is extremely enthusiastic about transportation vehicles of all kinds (though especially those related to space exploration). They live in snowbound articky Montreal (I live in sunny Southern California). The mittens should be very warm and of the variety which have long arm gaiters so they can be sealed up with the kid's winter coat's sleeves. What mittens would you recommend? Are there cool kid novelty ones, perhaps in the shape of transportation vehicles of all kinds or something similar? are there astronaut mittens for kids even? Thanks for all your tips!

Day Trip to Montreal

We will be vacationing in northern Vermont in July and would like to take a day trip to Montreal. Can anyone suggest a place near the city where we might be able to park the car and then take the Metro? Or a place within the city where we might be able to park for a day? Our plan is to drive up in the morning, do some sightseeing, have dinner, and then head back to our Vermont B&B. Any advice would be appreciated!

Chocolate Milk without added sugar

Late last year on a visit to Montreal, I purchased some chocolate milk that did not have any added sugar or sweeteners. It was awesome. Since coming back to the US (bay area) I have not found a chocolate milk that is free of the added sweeteners. I have tried whole foods, Berkeley bowl, trader joes and safeway. Any idea what brand I got in Montreal and where I can find something similar here?
