That's where Bobbi-Toads ($50) comes in, a kids' sneaker with embossed toes (and toenails) that are prime for painting. Yes, we said painting — with real nail polish. Simply apply your lil one's favorite nontoxic nail color to the toe portion of the shoe — or purchase a bottle of Bobbi-Polish nontoxic color ($8) and apply it — let it dry, and send your colorful kid on her way. When she's grown bored of the color, simply use a nontoxic polish remover on the shoe and then paint on your next color.
The six styles of shoes, available in sizes from little girls' 11-13 to big girls' 1-6 are designed to "give girls the ability to express themselves, make a unique fashion statement, and, most of all, have fun," according to founder Jacki Stanley. So tell us: would your tot love a pair of Bobbi-Toads?
