Is Tying Shoes A Challenge For Your Child? It's Not Anymore For My Four Year Old Thanks To "Tie Buddies"! Win A Pair!

Teaching my kids to tie their shoes is another skill that requires tons of patience and lots of positive encouragement! It's not easy to teach them to learn how to loop & pull and twist & push...all with their two little hands. Thankfully for you and me, there is a product that not only simplifies the task, but shows them how to do it on their own with a little practice and ease.Since I am in the process of teaching our four year old how to tie her shoes...this product is ideal for us RIGHT NOW!
We received their "Fairy And Magic Wand" pack (sent to us free of charge for this review) and I was hopeful that they would come through to be as simple and easy to put on and use as they appeared. There is a step by step guide on the back of the package to help walk you & your child through this fun shoe tying process.So I opened the package and put them on the shoe laces first (which was simple & easy) and we gave it a "GO".
So, the beauty of them? The work! It took us a few tries to figure out how to hold them right and for her to coordinate her hands to work together with the "Tie Buddies", but when she finally got it, she had a smile of satisfaction grow across her face. This not only warmed my heart, but made my "CHORE" of teaching her how so much easier. I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!! I truthfully may buy the boy pack for my oldest son, who has yet to "MASTER" the art of shoe tying.

Yes, taught a couple of girls how to tie their shoes. Don't recall how much time it took as it has been years ago. They were both quick learners.

I haven't taught my little on yet however this looks like it would be very helpful when we do!

susan said...

This is a must have because it is a guide for your child and you won't get so frustrated yourself. Plus it makes your child feel that much more independent to practice and master it with help.

My son could definately benefit from these! Thanks for the chance.

I taught my son to tie his shoes and he's still having difficulties and he's 7!! I think he's just lazy honestly, but regardless it's like pulling teeth... Anyway, I have another child that will need to be taught eventually,so these would come in very handy when the time is right.

I showed my two boys how to tie their shoes but somehow they only remember the kids at school teaching them. I still have one more child to teach and I defenately have a hard time with this task out of all things that they need to be taught. It takes awhile to master..

I am still trying to teach my six year old how to tie his shoes - I think I have done a good job teaching him everything else but this is not working for us. It's just easier for me to get him velcro shoes. - maybe this product would work for us!

I taught my older girls to tie their shoes. It took a couple of months for them to master it. My third daughter still hasn't got the hang of it and my son is too young.
