Maple Landmark makes nifty lil lacing helpers that set tots up for future tying — Lace-A-Shapes are solid wood painted animal shapes that help kids work on their hand-eye-coordination while pulling laces through the monkey, fish, teddy and butterfly. The set ($26) includes all four shapes.

These are really great. Occupational Therapists use this all the time to help special needs children learn to tie their shoes.
