Tie Buddies Review and Giveaway


I have avoided the "tying shoes" routine with my 4 year old by buying him shoes with the velcro straps, and slip on shoes. But I knew at some point I really needed to face the challenge of teaching him to tie his shoes. But I am pretty good at putting off the things I dread....kwim?

But thanks to Tie Buddies, I am so proud to announce that my little guy is now an accomplished shoe-lace tier, and it was easy, painless and fun!

Tie Buddies® is a mom-invented product by a mom that really wanted to give her daughter independence and build her confidence. Using the Tie Buddies eliminates all the confusing loops where laces need to pass through. Tie Buddies also uses a story method method based on characters shown on the Tie Buddies themselves.

My 4 year old got the very cool race car tie buddies, and we couldn't wait to get started trying them out. But first we actually had to go shopping and buy a pair of new shoes with laces--yep, he had none!

But it was worth the shopping trip. My little man is so happy and proud that he can now tie his shoes-- and I am delighted.

I'd love the green and red racecar set for my six year old (who is currently hopeless at tying his shoes). Thanks for the chance.

I would love to try the Red and Green Race Cars. We avoid shoes with laces since learning to tie laces is so frustrating for my son.

Sounds like a great invention! No wonder it was made my a mom! They know what we need.

Luckily my kids learned tying their shoes at school and even got a diploma for it!

I would love this for my oldest son. He is a lot older, but tying shoes is not clicking (a straight A student cannot comprehend this concept). THank you
