review and giveaway | shoezooz from Tiptoe & Co

I was gifted 2 sets of shoezooz for review purposes

available from Tiptoe&Co, $7.50 a pack {free shipping}

At almost 5 years old, Riley has been independently dressing himself for quite some time now. But he has always struggled with getting his shoes on the right feet. I haven't been too worried about it, because Douglas struggled at the same age, so I just figured it was par for the course.

So when I was asked to review shoezooz, I thought it would be a good opportunity to help Riley get a little bit more independence, finally figuring out how to get his shoes on properly first time (and hopefully make those busy mornings move a little quicker!)

He chose the whale for his shoes, and helped me take it off the backing and stick it in his shoe. Then I showed him how to put the puzzle pieces together, and pointed out the words to him. Nat was pretty excited by this point, eager to help him spell the words so he could start learning for school next year.

He's had the stickers in his shoes for a month now, and they haven't moved in the shoe (my biggest worry.) He's also managed to get his shoes on without asking for help, even in the rush to get to the wedding. I'll be adding them to his shoes for the next little while, to give him a visual aid while he's learning to read.

For your chance to win one of three sets of Shoezooz, follow the rafflecopter prompts

  10. A bowl of muesli for me,
    With fruit, that’s almost calorie free!
    A dollop of yoghurt on the top,
    That may sound like a lot!

  15. What a fantastic idea! My son is 4.5 and loves to be independent but definitely struggles with which foot is which - this would be perfect to help him figure it out all by himself!

  16. And, my favourite breakfast is poached eggs and avocado! But because the boys rule this house, breakfast usually ends up being porridge - their favourite instead!

    I go through phases of liking different things. In winter it is oats, and summer it is a low fat cereal, but if on holiday, I eat everything in sight.
