My daughter, Sophie, is a total girly-girl. She always has to be wearing her "princess clothes", and she even insists on having me paint her finger and toes with various nail polishes. I let her choose the colors, so sometimes they match and sometimes...Well, not so much! Still, she is always happy to show off her "pretty fingernails" to anyone who will take notice. (Yes, she calls her toe nails fingernails, too. We're working on that!)
But now that winter is here, she can't wear her cute little open-toed shoes and sandals. Let's face it: North-Eastern Ohio gets bitterly cold, and her cute little tootsies would turn into popsicles if she wore the shoes that allow her to showcase her painted toenails. That would make for a pretty unhappy, albeit stylish, little girl! And unhappy kids mean an unhappy Mommy!
That's why I was so excited to discover Bobbi-Toads! These shoes, that just happen to have an adorable name, have cuteness to match in several fun, vibrant colors and styles. They come in both velcro and tie versions and range in size from 11-5. So these are fantastic for kids around 3+, depending on the size of the child, all the way through elementary school.
The best part? They're specifically designed for fashionable girls who like the look of having painted toenails, even if their feet need to be covered to prevent frostbite! Yes. Bobbi-Toads have neat little "toes" with paintable nails! You can use any nail polish on them, but there is a great selection of Bobbi Polish on the Bobbi-Toads website that coordinates perfectly with all of their shoe designs. Mix, match, and do it all over again. Bobbi-Toads can be painted, and then the polish can be removed. This is a great way to encourage little girls to express their moods and emotions through the polish on their Bobbi-Toads!
The awesome folks over at Bobbi-Toads sent us a pair of their "Sophie" shoes to review. Which is pretty darn perfect, since I have a Sophie, myself! These shoes are so stinking cute, and feature vibrant pinks and greens, and have hearts on them. These are totally Sophie's style, and match her bubbly, warm personality very well!
Take a look at how cute our Bobbi-Toads are:
And of course, there are the toes! These are built right into the toe of the shoe. If they're not painted, you probably wouldn't even notice them. So these shoes can go from ordinary to extraordinary in minutes with the simple addition of nail polish.
Sophie helped me polish her Bobbi-Toads, so please forgive the lack of perfection here. I held her hand as steady as I could while she applied some red polish to the toenails.
Aren't these adorable?! Sadly, our Bobbi-Toads are just a little too big for Sophie. She can wear them, and they won't come flying off, but they're a bit too large for everyday wear and play just yet. No worries, though. I know that by spring or summer, they should fit perfectly, and she will be the talk of the town in her Bobbi-Toads!
For now, I am keeping them safe and away from our 3 rambunctious puppies. I take them out occasionally when Sophie asks to wear them, and she has so much fun prancing around the house showing everyone her toes. Yep, these are absolutely perfect for my very girly little girl.
I would definitely recommend Bobbi-Toads to anyone looking for something extra special for their little girls. Most girls adore fashion and feeling pretty, and these shoes add a unique element of fun to footwear.
