Buying shoes for toddlers is no fun. They curl up their toes, won’t stand in one place long enough to allow you to try on various pairs, and hate (for the most part) having to wear them in the first place.
Now look at these cute little Mary Janes. These are made by Mooshu, and my girls would adore these cute little shoes! Heck, I think they are pretty darn cute, too! But one thing I’m not sure I would like about these shoes are that they squeak when your child walks.
Now based on reviews I’ve read about Mooshu squeaky shoes, the shoes make a cute little squeak every time your little one takes a step. But this is not to irritate mom to death, nope – the squeaking actually teaches your little girl to walk properly from heel to toeÃ¢â‚¬Â¦otherwise, the shoe wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t squeak.
What that means to me is that this might be a good shoe for little ones just learning how to walk. Instead of just clomping around, you can teach them that they want to hear the squeak. Okay, I get that…but I also know that squeak would drive me crazy! Not to worry though, the squeaker can be removed from the shoes. Whew!
The shoes are not cheap – those little Mary Janes retail for $32. But the shoes are made of “butter soft leather with pigskin leather lining”. They also have padded collars. The soles are made of rubber and are very flexible and durable. This is a bonus: they have velcro buckles so they are simple to put on and take off. They have little boy styles as well.
I don’t know about you, but I’m sold! I think this would make a cute baby shower or first birthday gift. What do you think?
