Tie Buddies- Review and Giveaway
So I will admit that there are some things that are confusing to me as a parent. One of the big ones is how to teach kids to tie their shoes. I mean, honestly, you give them some laces and even if you show them, it is just a bunch of string right? Anyway, Sara is not old enough for me to worry about this yet, but I am glad that I found about Tie Buddies.
What are Tie Buddies?
From the Tie Buddies website:
Tying your shoes is a small but essential skill, one you use for the rest of your life.
Help your little one learn faster with Tie BuddiesTM.
These cute, kid-friendly devices act as easy pull-tabs for small hands, taking messy loops out of the equation.
The happy characters make a game of it, resulting in a strong knot and even stronger recall.
The simple developmental hurdle of shoe tying affects millions of parents and children daily. For many years, shoe tying has been a point of frustration for both parents and children. With 1slip-ons and hook-and-loop closures, children and parents have postponed the learning of tying shoes. Tie Buddies® is a mom-invented product that came
about from wanting to give my daughters independence, build their confidence and have fun learning. By eliminating loops, Tie Buddies® eliminate the confusion of multiple "holes" where the laces can pass through. There is no other product that stays on the child's shoe giving them independence while re-enforcing the learning process.
I am actually excited to be able to use these with Sara. We got the Fairy and Magic wand and it is just such a cool idea. We actually had a friend of ours try them out since Sara is so young and she said that her daughter loved it (daughter is 4). She is still not great at tying her shoes, but it is getting better. How cool is that!
Do you think that your child will want to give it a try? One lucky winner will receive a pair of Tie Buddies.
