My 4 yr-old great nephew truly LOVES anything to do with kilts...and will tell you in a nano-second that it is NOT a skirt! So, when I gave him my old kilt, he shook with joy like a bowl of jelly. He insisted on wearing it to bed and to the zoo the next day; but they did manage to leave it in the car at the park. He even has his own small bagpipe. Hats off to you, young Scotsman.
