Learning to tie your shoes is one of the essentials of childhood. My son Jeremy is 6 and it has been a struggle to teach him to tie his own shoes. He tends to get frustrated and forgets how to get the laces to loop together.
I recently had the chance to review Tie buddies.
Tie buddies are cute and kid friendly devices that act as pull tabs for little hands making it easier to tie shoes. The Tie buddies take the messy loop out of the equation and boost the confidence of the child. They come in race cars for boys and fairies and magic wands for girls.
We have been using Velcro shoes when Jeremy goes to school and since one of his favorite pairs of shoes have ties he was very excited to try and tie them with the tie buddies.
I slipped the race car buddies through each of the shoelaces and showed Jeremy how to do it the first time.The back of the package comes with easy to follow instructions. He tried a couple of times and had trouble crossing the shoelaces so we put them up for the day so he wouldn’t get discouraged. The next day I wanted him to try again and he tied his shoes on the first try! He was so excited and proud of himself.
I think these are a great learning tool and helped me show him how to tie his shoes in an easy and understandable way. The Tie buddies cost $8.99 for a 4 pack and you can purchase them on the Tie buddies website.
