You know when you are out and about and the kids aren’t in their stroller? As kids do they like to wander and walk by themselves. My twins are at a very independent age right now – 3 years old – and I try to let them walk when it’s safe. It’s not that they don’t like the stroller, they are just explorers by nature. I love that about them.
Sometimes it can be a little tough keeping an eye on them so I rely on my other senses – mainly hearing. But have you noticed that when kids get together they often sound the same? All of those sounds get meshed into one big ball of chatter and laughter. So having the kiddos wear adorable squeaky shoes from Yochi Yochi is like a dream come true!
Yochi Yochi is proud to introduce the latest trend from Japan here on American soil. Yochi Yochi shoes are made with a small squeaking diaphragm in the heel of each shoe which causes a small squeak when your child takes a step. The noise is fun, but we think it goes beyond that. With the squeaking sound of every step, you can find comfort in that fact that your stealthy child will have a hard time getting away from your side without you knowing. In addition to safety, many doctors have suggested that when children can audibly recognize their footsteps, the sounds can reinforce the natural rhythm of walking and actually help train them to walk. We strive to create durable products at great prices because we know how fast your children grow up!
I have to tell you how much I ADORE these shoes! First – the design is super cool. They are slightly raised at the ankle, kind of like skate shoes, to help protect those little ankles from twists and turns. They look very cool with jeans pooling around them, very modern. Plus the added security of my children standing out among the crowd sound-wise, I can easily hear
if when they get distracted by something shiny.
The characters are DARLING. Yochi Yochi is a Japanese company and the characters have a sort of bubble-gum-anime look, much like Domo, Kai-lan (I know, she’s Chinese), or Keroppi & Hello Kitty. Really, if your child loves Sanrio, they will LOVE Yochi Yochi.
Yochi Yochi Shoes come in sizes 4 through 10 and are available in 4 different styles:
(There are also adorable Yochi Yochi rattle socks for tiny feet!)
