Meet Truman, An Amazing Jelt Kid.

Last week we launched Jelt Junior, our stretchy elastic belt for kids. Check out the following interview with Truman, our 6-year Jelt Junior model who is a local, Bozeman first grader. His answers will remind you how sweet and innocent we all were as kids. Hopefully, this will bring a smile to your face and possibly a tear of joy....something we all need these days.

1. What is your name? 

Truman Devitt but I like to be called Tru

2. How old are you?

six, but I think my bdays coming up soon so I'm pretty close to seven.

 3. What do you like most about school? 

I am learning how to read and it's awesome. I like books about baby animals, fishing, and books that give facts about real stuff.

4. How do you like to help at home?

I help mom mix cookie dough, she makes good chocolate chip cookies. I help with my baby sister too, she likes to knock down my block towers and be tickled. You have to watch her because she puts everything in her mouth. 

5.  What is your favorite sport?

Definitely soccer… We have a fun team this time with some good players and we win a lot. I also love BMX racing and riding my bike at the track – I usually go really fast.

6. What do you want to be when you grow up?

I guess a fireman because I had my fourth birthday at the fire station and those guys are cool. I like the mask and suits they wear plus they fight fires and help out people... and they get to drive fast but now I like being a kid, grown-ups don't get to play very much.

7. Who is your hero?

That's a hard one… My mom and dad I think, because they love me, feed me and play with me – crazy fun games, they also take us camping a lot. 

8. What do you think makes you special? 

So I'm pretty good at BMX. But I like how I make friends wherever I go and I always have fun. 

9. What is your favorite sport to do in your Jelt?

Probably skateboarding,  since my shorts are kind of big and I totally need my belt to hold them up while I skate, but this winter I'm going to try it with my snow pants since they are big on me too so they don't fall down when I get big air! BMX riding of course, too.
