Tying your shoes is a small but essential skill, one you use for the rest of your life. Help your little one learn faster with Tie Buddies®. These cute, kid-friendly devices act as easy pull-tabs for small hands, taking messy loops out of the equation. The happy characters make a game of it, resulting in a strong knot and even stronger recall.



My kindergartner knows how to tie her shoes but she often has trouble with it and gets frustrated. When I was given the chance to review tie buddies I thought it might help her to master it. I was given the choice of blue with race cars or pink with a fairy and wand and I chose the pink ones. 

We received these in the mail and Natalie was excited to put them on her shoes and try them out. It did take a few minutes to put these on her shoelaces because one of them was frayed. I wrapped some tape around it and from there it was an easy process. It took less than 5 minutes to put these on the shoelaces.

I showed Natalie how to tie her shoes with these and it took her a couple tries to get the hang of it. But now she is tying her shoes all the time and is not getting frustrated anymore. She loves the way they look on her shoes and I really like the confidence they have given her. I think after having these on her shoes for a little while she will be able to master tying her shoes without them easily.

I think Tie Buddies are a good introductory step to learning how to tie shoes. It helps children learn the basics and gives them confidence in their abilities. It also gets children excited to learn how to tie their shoes.
At only $8.99 each on their website, I think these are a great deal.
