Tie Buddies Review & Giveaway


Ok, I hate to admit this, but I'm not real great when it comes to having patience. This definitely poses a problem when trying to teach the kids things such as tying their shoes. Asher will be heading off to kindergarten in the fall and he needs to learn to tie his shoes before he does, which means that I need to get on the ball. Fortunately I found a great little product that should make this whole tying shoes thing much easier than I thought it was going to be.

Tie Buddies are cute little things you put on your kid's shoelaces that make it easy for the child to work on the skill of tying their shoes, without having to mess with the loops or "bunny ears" that always seem to slip out of their hands during the process. (That equals frustration for me and the kids). See here for how the process works to get a better idea.

Tie Buddies come in a boy design with little racecars on them (Asher thinks they're super cool) and a girl design with fairies and magic wands.

We tried ours out yesterday for the first time and Asher is already getting the hang of them. Won't be long now and he'll be tying his shoes all by himself. WoooHooo! One less necessary, yet frustrating skill I have to teach. Now onto the next one! LOL Really though, it's nice to know that he won't have to be asking the teacher for help everytime one of his shoes come untied and it gives him a real sense of accomplishment, so I think it's great!

The nice people over at Tie Buddies would like to offer one of my readers a pair of Tie Buddies in your choice of Boy or Girl design! See below for how to gain entries!

I love that there is no loop issue to deal with. It makes the "push it through" step so simplified! ellisakobylak (at) gmail (dot) com

I love the fact that their is no issue in which way I teach him how to do his "bunny loop" ... all he has to do is push it through!

These would be great for Anthony, since he refuses to wear velcro shoes now ;)
