Kids' cycling clothing?

Can anyone recommend a source for kids' cycling/safety clothing? I'm specifically looking for padded fingerless gloves and a high-visibility safety vest for my small five y.o. to wear on long rides on her tag-along.

Only one of my three kids wanted bike gloves (Little strange for me, because I rarely ride without ones). I ended up buying a pair at Walmart. LBS did not have anything in right size.

I found kids gloves at Wal-mart and Performance occasionally has close outs on kids jerseys also found a jersey for my granddaughter at the Pearl Izumi outlet store for about half the regular price.

I have ordered a kids jersey and shorts for from
http://www.aerotechdesigns.com/

I think I saw gloves on website.

Quality is good, price is good (search for coupons, they had 5% off), and they are made in usa.

Thanks for the Aerotechdesigns recommendation! Their stuff looks great and comes in appropriately small sizes.

There's really no Walmart near where I live, but I thought they sold mostly dollar store stuff anyway? Interesting. And for some reason I completely forgot that one of the LBSs near me is managed by a guy with kids the same age as mine, so I will also ask him.

Still interested in any further recommendations, especially for reflective vests. (At least 90% of our riding is on the street, and even with the flag on her tag-along I'd like a little more visibility.)
