One reader will win a set of Tie Buddies!

Remember learning to tie your shoes? I distinctly remember that I learned to tie on a dress that my Cabbage Patch doll wore! It's no small feet (haha, get it?) teaching your kids to tie their shoes. Luckily, mom inventor, Wendy Welling has stepped up to the plate and revolutionized how your kids learn to tie their laces!

Introducing, Tie Buddies. These cute little squares create "pull tabs" on your child's shoes that make it fast and easy for them to learn how and keep on tying their own shoes. Currently, you can choose from a boy version and a girl version but, rest assured because more characters are coming.
With TRex having just turned 5 this summer, I was super excited to try out the Tie Buddies. Hubby and I both slid the laces through the Tie Buddies and showed TRex the few simple steps. In under 10 minutes he was successfully doing it on his own and having a really good time. Once he's gotten the hang of it, we'll remove one of the Tie Buddies and let him practice making the loop on his own while mimicking what the Tie Buddy lace is doing. After a bit, remove the other Tie Buddy and he's a pro!

I think the Tie Buddies are a definite Must-Have for any preschooler. I also think they'd be really helpful to have in Kindergarten classrooms. Tie Buddies are so affordable that you'll be able to get a pair for every lace-up shoes your kid owns! I think they would make a great Birthday or Back to School gift!

Tie Buddies would like to give one of my readers a set of Tie Buddies of their own!

Contest is open to US and Canada only and will end on September 13th.
