Tie Buddies Review and Giveaway



Mahayla will be 3 years old next month! My little girl is growing up and getting ready for school. Mahayla will be starting private school in August. That means school uniforms and shoes with laces. One of our summer goals has become teaching Mahayla how to tie her shoes. Only if there was a product out there to help. Wait! There is....Tie Buddies!Tie Buddies help your child learn how to tie their shoes faster. Tie Buddies are available in two design combination's, a fairy and her wand and race cars. You simply thread the Tie Buddies onto the shoe laces, follow the instructions, and make up a story for your Tie Buddies characters. The pull tabs are easy to use for small clumsy hands. The more times they practice, the better they get, and eventually you can remove the Tie Buddies.

My Thoughts: My advise is to follow the instructions to the tee. The instructions say to have 3.5" of lace between the Tie Buddy and the last shoe eyelet. This was the hardest part to me. Mahayla only wears a size 6 toddler shoe. They generally don't have 3.5" or more of lace left over after they are completely laced up. I had to find her a pair of tennis shoes that had longer laces for these to work. Some shoe laces are also difficult to thread through the holes of the Tie Buddies. The thinner the lace the better. We made up our "Tinkerbell" story to go along with her Tie Buddy characters (Fairy and Wand). She still hasn't quite got it down but it is much better than before when she would just wad up the laces and call them tied. Overall, they are a quality product and do help with learning to tie shoes once you get all the right measurements and laces needed.


Buy It: Tie Buddies are available for sale online for $8.99 (plus S&H)

Win It:  Tie Buddies is offering one of my followers a Tie Buddies set of their choice. Leave me comment about how you taught your child how to tie their shoes.

I have never taught a child to tie their shoes, but this seems like it would be a great help!

We're actually just getting to the point of teaching tyingknots and shoes so I'm reading all of the comments for advice! :) These would be so well timed for us!

I haven't started yet because I don't know how! This would be a great helper, especially for my Special Needs 4 year old. She would have difficulty grasping the laces and since she is a visual thinker she will need something like Tie Buddies to help her see the story and the steps.

The most unique way to celebrate Friendship Day would be hold a gathering for your favorate images,quotes,
hd wallpapers,messages,pics,photos and many more... Be that as it may, this thought needs a touch of arranging and exertion as you have to choose where to post(facebook,whatssapp,twitter,instagrame etc..) Once that is done, ring your pals and simply have your indulgence !

An extraordinary thought to praise friendship in an inventive way is make a blurb on Friendship Day this year.
