Mommy's Lil Helper: Lace-A-Shapes

Mommy's Lil Helper: Lace-A-Shapes

In the 1980's Velcro shoes were totally cool, but my mom wouldn't let me get them until I could tie my shoes.

I remember practicing the bunny ear method on my rainbow Peaks and finally figured it out after several attempts.

To see a product that might help your tot tie or sew in the future,


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.

Great item, but a bit expensive for the set. The company would do well to offer them singly for several dollars each ($5.99, perhaps). The fishy is super-cute.
