Tie Buddies - Review and Giveaway **Closed**


If you haven't heard of Tie Buddies you need to check them out. They are recommended by teachers and parents everywhere. They are a great little tool that helps teach kids how to tie their shoes! At only $7.95 you can afford to get a pair for each pair of your childrens shoes. Learning to tie shoes can be hard. My almost 7 year old couldn't do it. She would try and then get frustrated and just give up.

When we recieved our tie buddies Kristina was so excited. She hasn't even wanted to try to learn again for months because it was so frustereating for her. We went out and bought some new tie up shoes and went to work with our tie buddies the next day. I thought it would take her a while to figure it out but I guess because she is almost 7 she was totally ready and got it down pat in no time at all. She did get a bit frusterated because I think she thought she would get it on her first try but we worked through it and within the hour she was tying her laces. She even wanted to take them off and try to do it without them right away. She is so proud of herself and loves showing everyone who comes over!

We loved our Tie Buddies and hope you do to.

I learned that Tie BuddiesTM offer children ages 3-9 the independence of tying their own shoes while quickly teaching them a method which is based around characters and stories depicted on the Tie BuddiesTM themselves. amsbolda@hotmail.com

I learned that they are invented by a mom that thought there had to be an easier way to tie shoes.
