Little girls, as a general rule, love shoes. (OK, maybe I project my love of shoes onto the little girls around me, but nonetheless…) My 4-year-old niece has had every kind of sneaker — ones with characters, ones that light up, you name it. In fact, it’s already a challenge to get her excited over sneakers. Then she slipped her feet into Bobbi-Toads (the Rhonda Khaze style) and it was a whole different story.
Now, your next question is probably, “What is on the front of those sneakers? They look like toes!” or something to that effect. Anywho, here’s the side view, which is almost as adorable:
You are correct. They are, indeed, toes. With little toenails. That’s why, when you order your Bobbi-Toads sneakers, you also order a bottle (or two or three) of Bobbi Polish. Such as Bubble Gum:
So, once your little shoe fanatic gets her pair of awesome new sneakers, she (with your help, of course) gets to be creative and gets to make her sneakers uniquely hers. My niece still hasn’t decided how she wants to “design” her Bobbi-Toads, but she’s working on it. Of course, you can always change up the design anytime you want, by simply using polish remover.
There are several of varieties of Bobbi-Toads sneakers — you can choose sneakers with velcro closures or with shoelaces, in a great selection of colors that girls tend to love. For instance, the Hillary sneakers (my personal favorite):
Or the JacJac sneakers, in metallic blue (cute!) with velcro snaps (convenient!):
I would have preferred getting a pair of the velcro Bobbi-Toads for my niece since she can’t tie her own shoes yet, but…no dice. She went for the pink version with shoelaces, so it looks like we’re going to continue tying her shoes for the time being. That’s OK, though…because these sneakers are so flipping cute, who minds getting a close-up look now and then? Not me!
A few pointers about Bobbi-Toads:
- Bobbi Polish is the recommended polish for your new sneakers. If you choose to use another non-toxic nail polish, it is advised that you use a clear base coat to reduce the risk of discoloration.
- If you don’t plan on re-painting your new sneakers within a week, it is best to store them without any polish.
- If your Bobbi-Toads get discolored from the use of non-Bobbi Polish, try cleaning with a 50/50 mix of bleach and water or a product like Clorox Cleanup.
- You can use the Bobbi Polish on your little one’s nails as well — talk about coordinating with your shoes!
