Loopers Laces...Review & Giveaway!


I love shoes that slip on or are Velcro.  As a mom to three little ones I scope out shoes that are easy for them to put on by themselves.  When I was recently shoe shopping with A&W I realized the error of my lazy ways...they were eying shoes with laces and they had NO idea how to manage those.  In fact, I had them purchase their second choice shoes because they did not know how to tie their laces and I was too overwhelmed thinking I would be tying a bunch of laces over and over (and over and over!) again in the coming months.  Lucky for A&W, Loopers Training Laces arrived in the mail shortly after my lazy mommy moment.  What are Loopers?  Here is the scoop from their website...






The Loopers Laces were created by Dena who is an occupational therapist.   While witnessing countless children struggle over the concept of tying their shoes she created Loopers Laces.  Loopers Laces are cute little shoes which have standard laces....except for one important bit.  There is a Velcro at the point where the loop is formed.  I found with A&W the Velcro made a HUGE difference in how the approached lace tying.  Creating the loops is a big hurdle and having the Velcro there to guide is a huge confidence booster and allows the child to master the other steps while practicing forming the loops.  What a clever idea!  A&W think of this as a game and enjoy practicing tying the laces.  Baby R is obsessed with trying to jam them onto her feet (she is a gal who loves shoes!).

I think Loopers Laces are a great idea to help kiddos master this tough skill.  These are great for home use, daycares, pre-schools and classrooms.  They also have the coveted PTPA seal of approval which lets you know that I am not alone in my praise!  Pick up Loopers Laces today by clicking HERE.


I am so pleased to tell you that Loopers Laces is giving one lucky RBM reader a set of Loopers Laces. Thanks to the sponsor and here is how to enter...

I'm trying to win this for my seven-year-old...he's got some fine-motor delays and can't tie, and this way he wouldn't have to have the gym teacher tie his sneakers at school!
