Gifts for Kids – 2019 Holiday Gift Guide

   

 

ikiki shoes

A dad with growing kids came up with ikiki shoes in 2009. He was actually an engineer looking for shoes that were healthy and fun for kids, and not just shrunken adult shoes. He understood kid feet are in the most important developmental stage of life, and therefore needed the correct support and design. ikiki has reimagined kid’s shoes and has used the best materials to make their products breathable, comfortable, and fun.

 

What makes these shoes extra unique is the built in adjustable squeaker. These shoes are great for in stores and parks when you are trying to multitask. Rather than looking for groceries and watching kids, you can actually look at what you are buying while listening to your child’s actions. Then with a simple flip of a switch you, or your child, can turn the squeaks off. So when heading to the library or movie theater, or you just need a bit of quiet, ikiki shoes can be silenced. ikiki didn’t just design shoes for the different needs of adolescent feet, they also created unique styles to accentuate the personality of your little ones. ikiki shoes are visually appealing with bright colors and friendly characters. To find out more about ikiki shoes check out MamatheFox reviews.

Duchess Bubblegum Sparkles is one of ikiki’s latest characters. The adorable 3D unicorn design appeals to every girl crazy about all things unicorns these days!

Dutchess’s biography tells of a royal unicorn longing for freedom from the spotlight. Yet, even without her royal life, she still commands the attention of all when she enters a room. Duchess Bubblegum Sparkles are win win win when it comes to style, quality, and fun!

    Lots of great gifts to choose from for my grandchildren. My favorites are the Duchess Bubblegum Sparkles for my granddaughter who loves shoes. For my grandson I would go with the Cat tough construction vehicles. I think they would both love the animal masks but I’m afraid to spend that money till I’m sure they’d wear them. They haven’t really worn a mask yet as they aren’t yet 4 years of age. I will keep those masks noted.
