If you've got preschool aged kids or toddlers, you know firsthand how hard it can be to keep up with them. Little kids are quite stealthy, and seem to have a never-ending supply of energy. I don't know about you, but chasing my kids is an every day thing, and definitely keeps me on my toes.
Since I don't have an extra set of hands or eyes in the back of my head, I always worry about my kids somehow getting out of my field of vision. Maybe I am just terribly over-protective of my littles, but the idea of them getting lost even for a moment terrifies me. Thankfully, this has not happened yet, but I am just waiting for the day that one (or both) of my little ones run off and nearly give me a coronary event. This may happen at the store, or maybe it will be at the park...It could literally happen anywhere, and I definitely don't look forward to it!
Thankfully, Yochi Yochi Shoes offers a cute and effective solution for overly worrisome parents like me. You see, these adorable character shoes come equipped with a built-in squeaker that lets out a wee little chirp with every step a child takes. (No worries, Mom, they can easily be removed to preserve your sanity!)
About Yochi Shoes :
"Yochi Yochi is proud to introduce the latest trend from Japan here on American soil. Yochi Yochi shoes are made with a small squeaking diaphragm in the heel of each shoe which causes a small squeak when your child takes a step. The noise is fun, but we think it goes beyond that.
With the squeaking sound of every step, you can find comfort in that fact that your stealthy child will have a hard time getting away from your side without you knowing.
In addition to safety, many doctors have suggested that when children can audibly recognize their footsteps, the sounds can reinforce the natural rhythm of walking and actually help train them to walk.
We strive to create durable products at great prices because we know how fast your children grow up!"
Our Opinion of Yochi Yochi Shoes :
We received the Miss Mushi shoes and the Captain Zuga shoes to check out for ourselves. These shoes come in sizes 4-10, making them perfect for new walkers as well as preschoolers like my kids.
Yochi Yochi Shoes are incredibly durable and well-made, and can definitely stand up to the active lifestyles of small children. They even come packaged in a cute drawstring bag that features the Yochi Yochi logo. This is an extra special added touch that I really appreciate.
Sophie absolutely loves what she calls her "Ladybug Shoes", and insists on wearing them all the time. She loves running in them, making them squeak, and she also says that they're very comfortable.
Xander calls his shoes his "Scary Monster Shoes" and loves chasing his sister and our cats around while he roars....It's very funny to witness, since all you hear is "squeak, squeak, squeak...RAAAWRRRR". We all get the giggles, but for some reason, I doubt our kitties appreciate it!
Both of my babies have become quite fond of their Yochi Yochi Shoes. Whether it's running errands or outdoor playtime, my babies insist on wearing them. They even love climbing up the slide on our backyard playground, just so they can listen to their shoes chirp!
Overall, I am definitely a fan of Yochi Yochi Shoes. Not only are they absolutely adorable, they also allow me to chill out and relax, since I can always hear where my children are. We love the fact that even if our kids escape our vision, we can find them rather quickly due to the distinct squeak of the shoes. It's especially fun in the evening when we take the dogs for a walk. My neighborhood is very quiet, and if I stand out on our deck, I can hear the squeaking as my husband and children walk around the block!
Yochi Yochi Shoes come in other fun designs, too. In addition to Miss Mushi and Captain Zuga seen here, there are also Prince Kairu and Princess Sakura, which look like frogs and panda bears! So there really is something to delight any little boy or girl in your life. Also, at only $29.99, you won't break the bank.
