pediped review and giveaway

Shoes that stay on, it really is a small miracle! 

My 18 month old was excited to be able to review some cute new shoes from Pediped.  She is  100% girl and just loves shoes and bags, but unfortunately normally she hauls her shoes around inside her cute little bag… because we can not get them to stay on her feet. She has “squishy feet”, aka adorable chubby, fat little feet that are so fun to tickle and squeeze but super hard to get into shoes.

When the package of Pediped shoes came, I opened them up then set them on the counter. She spotted them and yelled SHOES. They come in a cute box with a handle, which to her looked like a purse. So she carried them all over the house, hugging them, kissing them and giving them rides in her dolly stroller. It was clear from the start that she LOVED them and thought they were pretty. But the real test was, WILL THEY STAY ON HER FEET?

pediped review and giveawayPediped are soft and flexible which makes them easy to get on your child’s feet. Even if they have chubby little square shaped feet like my daughter.  Another great thing is they open up really wide at the top to make getting your child’s foot in much easier, then you can tighten it up and make it nice and secure with the velcro strap. The soles are also super flexible which makes walking in them easier, since little ones are still trying to keep their balance and  figure out how to walk/ run and get around.

I put my daughters in the fleece lined tan boots at about 3pm. She played in the ball pit, ran around the house, climbed up and down the stairs and her shoes STAYED ON HER FEET the whole time. She decided she wanted to take them off when it was time to eat dinner (about 6 pm). So for 3 hours her shoes stayed in place  and didn’t fall off (which is a small miracle in itself). After dinner she wanted them back on, and wore them until bedtime. This morning the first things she did was bring me her shoes, so I could put them on. She has been wearing them all day, I am just excited we finally have shoes that will STAY ON her feet!

So we happily give these Pediped a huge thumbs up. They are comfortable, stylish, and stay on her feet!

Play all day Elmo review, gift ideas for kids for Christmas, toddler gift ideasPlayskool Sesame Street Play All Day Elmo

  • 2 modes of play
  • Featuring 8 games and activities and 150+ responses
  • Cuddly plush toy
  • Explore basic cause-and-effect play like tummy-tickling in Toddler mode
  • Includes Play All Day Elmo toy and instructions.

Have you seen the commercials for the Play All Day Elmo dolls?  My 18 month old loves Elmo so I was excited to see that they have come out with a Elmo that will GROW with her.  The doll itself will not grow, but it has different  modes to match her development at that time. There is switch in the back of Elmos head that allows you to pick  toddler or preschool mode. These will allow Elmo to do different interactive tasks or games with your child are her understanding and skills grow.

One of the things I like best is fact that Elmo has a NAP button.  He is a chatty little fella and if your child wants to take him to bed then he is going to talk the whole time.  BUT the nap button once switched on will make Elmo say he is sleepy and he starts to talk slower and wants to lay down. Elmo then sings 3 songs to your child, and then goes to sleep.  He will not make noise or move again until nap mode is turned off.

Some fun things Emo can do is count when your child claps his hands, he knows when he is turned upside down  or right side up.  He also plays games with your  child like the red light green light game. When Elmo says green your child is suppose to run, when Elmo says red light you stop.  Elmo can tell if your child moves or not, and will encourage them to do so. I really am amazed at how interactive this doll is, I am super excited to learn more about him and see what all he can do, the longer we have him.

My 18 month old was a little worried that Elmo was moving and talking at first, since her Elmo she had before didn’t do any of that. But she quickly warmed up to him and was loving him and carting him around like her baby.  She put him down after a bit to go eat, I had to smile when I came into the room and saw my 5 year old son all snuggles up with Elmo. He might love super heroes and tough guys but I think Elmo will also hold a special place in his heart. And this Play All Day Elmo is super soft and cuddly!
