Tie Buddies Review!!

At what age do you attempt to teach your kids to tie their shoes? Boug is 4 now and with the help of Tie Buddies, is really getting the hang of tying her shoes!!Tie Buddies slide onto the laces of sneakers and act as pull tabs for little ones learning how to tie their shoes. With adorable little designs on them, pink with faries and wands for girls and race cars for boys, the appeal is there and they keep their attention to get the task of shoe tying learned!

As they say at the 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 Buddies. 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 slip-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."

After making a run to the store for some thinner laces, the ones that came with Boug's adidas sneakers were too thick, Boug was excited to try out her new Tie Buddies. They peaked her interest and when showing her how to do it, they KEPT her interest. After doing them together a few times, she's ALMOST got tying her shoes down pat with Tie Buddies!!I truly suggest heading over to the Tie Buddies site and picking up a pair, they really cut down on frustration for both Boug and myself with learning and teaching how to tie shoes. At $7.95 a set, a small and reasonable price to pay for convenience and not having a frustrated kid or mom!!

Thanks Family Review Network and Tie Buddies for making this review possible!!
