First Steps!

This one is getting around.  She can crawl across the room in the blink of an eye.  She goes from the crawl to the crab-walk, to the zombie-walk (crab-walk with one leg while dragging the other), then the one step and plop down, and most recently 9 steps across the room!  It won't be long before my baby is walking circles around her big brother and sister.

I love when I stumble upon cool products,  and I really really love when I find out that the manufacturer is a stand up company as well.

A fine gentleman from Yochi Yochi sent me a pair of shoes for Chica to try out and for me to review.  The opinions expressed here are my own and I was not paid or made to say anything in particular. (which is a good thing because Mama Nic doesn't roll like that!)

So, in having said that, I would love to introduce you to Yochi Yochi Footwear!  There are 4 styles of shoes to chose from, (all adorable) and they are all more than just cute, they are functional.

I picked out Princess Sakura shoes and they arrived propmpty, packed in a cute little drawstring bag.



Chica may not be totally committed to walking everywhere, but soon she will be and she will be walking and squeaking all over!  When your child takes a step the shoe squeaks  This squeak besides making her giggle,  is a way for me to know where she is.  How cool is that?  Also, Yochi Yochi says that doctors have suggested that when the kiddos "can audibly recognize their footsteps, the sounds can reinforce the natural rhythm of walking and actually help train them to walk". 

From my inspection this product seems to be high quality.  They are made of nylon and look really comfy for her little tootsies.  The strap is extra wide and Velcros across.  This is genius because the shoes can open up wide to get them easily on and off, which is a huge plus for me.  Now, if only diapers were so easy to get on this squirmy kid we would be all set!  The soles are rubber and adorned with a sweet panda face and of course as I mentioned already,  they sqeak.

Chica likes to stand holding on to my bed and "hop" (go up and down from tipple-toe to heel) and make them squeak.
Yochi Yochi also claims to practice environmentally friendly practices.  Examples of how they do this can be found on their site.  They use water based dyes, energy efficient equiptment, and store rain water for daily factory use.  Now,  that makes me happy to hear.

I am sure you will see her tootsies clad in Princess Sakura Shoes in many pictures throughout the summer and fall.

Here are some fun things you can do while wearing Yochi Yochi Shoes.

Oh, maybe this one was a personal call.  She is very social, ya know?

Sneak into Mama's nightstand.

Hmmmm.  What can I get out of here?

Oh yeah!  They run from sized 4 to 10.  Check them out and see if your kids like the squeaking  sound too.

Well, I have to run.....

Chica's squeaking is getter a little to far away.....again!

Love, Peace, and Sandy Feet,
Mama Nic
