Do you have little ones at home that have trouble tying their own shoes? Well then do I have a site for you!
Welcome to Tie Buddies!
WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL???
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 BuddiesTM. 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.
Tie Buddies come in both boys or girls — and work like a charm!
STEP 1: (FOR PARENTS)
Begin with the widest part of the Tie Buddy at the top, holes facing up. Thread the lace up through the closest tunnel, then out the top and down through the second, outer tunnel. Do not leave a loop above the Tie Buddy. Make sure there is roughly 3.5” of lace between the Tie Buddy and the last shoe eyelet. The 3.5″ should be measured with your childs’ foot in the shoe with the laces untied. Measure from the eyelet to the base of the Tie Buddy. You may need to adjust according to your childs’ shoes and lace length so try the tying process yourself first to be sure the Tie BuddiesTM are placed correctly. Repeat the process on the second lace.
Holding the TIPS of the laces, make an “X” and wrap one end through the hole and pull tight.
Grasp just below your Tie Buddies
Pass the left Tie Buddy (character) behind the other’s back
…and back around in front
Now finish by pushing that Tie Buddy (character) back through the hole
Now grab both the Tie Buddies(characters) and pull up and away until your bow is tight
You’ve done it!
You can tie your shoes!
Once they’ve gotten the hang of it, remove one Tie Buddy so they can practice holding a lace on their own. Soon enough,you’ll remove the other and your child will be a shoe-tying whiz!
What a unique and wonderful invention! I am just sad that they did not have these when I was just a little girl!!
