There are two things I look for when buying shoes, slippers, etc. for me and my girls – they have to be the right size, and they have to be comfortable. I recently had the chance to try products from two companies – Squatchi and Snoozies – that help me with both of these things.
Squatchi is a foot sizer for children. It is basically the same thing that is used in shoe stores, but it is made of durable plastic, instead of metal which is cold and can be uncomfortable. Squatchi also comes in several fun colors, including blue, purple, pink, green, and red. All you have to do is line your child’s heel up against the curved end and measure. You can even mark the shoe size on the Squatchi with a permanent marker and keep track of your child’s growth. The Squatchi measures shoe sizes from size 2 Toddler up to 5 Youth (or approximately ages 1 to 11).
I think the Squatchi will be a lifesaver when it comes to buying shoes for my girls. I have never had any luck getting them to cooperate in a shoe store and allow someone to measure their feet. We usually end up guessing at the size, trying on 2-3 different sizes before finding what fits. For some reason, they have no problem letting me measure their feet at home with the Squatchi, so that can be done before we head to the store, saving us some time and the headache in trying to do the measuring in-store. Also, since I live in a small town with not much in the way of shopping, I buy a lot of stuff for my girls online. It will be great to measure their feet before ordering shoes so I know I can get the right size and not have to deal with the hassle of returning shoes because they do not fit. And since it seems that my girls’ feet are constantly growing, I can be sure that I have the most current measurement.
Snoozies are fun, soft, and cuddly “foot coverings” made of brushed fleece on the outside and lined with Sherpa fleece on the inside. Snoozies come in a variety of fun styles and designs, and they are available for babies, toddlers, children, teens, women, and men! I have seen Snoozies in stores and have even bought some as presents for family members as they looked like they would be really comfortable. I heard great things about the Snoozies from those gift recipients (“so soft” and “they feel great on my feet”) so I was excited for my girls to have the chance to try them as well.
I received a pair of Snoozies for each of my girls – sports balls for my oldest daughter and elephants for my youngest daughter. So cute!!! Both of my girls love putting on their Snoozies when we get home each day and take off our shoes. I like how the Snoozies have slip-resistant bottoms so the girls do not slide around on our tile floors. And they are machine-washable, which is great because I know they will need to be washed soon. My oldest is having a pajama party at her preschool this week, and she told me that she wants to wear her Snoozies too!
Learn more about Squatchi (including a video on how to properly use the Squatchi), and find out where you can buy your own either online or in stores (with prices ranging from $15 to $20). Check out the various kinds of Snoozies available. Snoozies are sold in gift shops nationwide, so find a store near you where you can buy them (for $15 or less!). Mother’s Day is coming up soon, and they would make a great gift for that special woman in your life!
