baby kicks with Japanese flair {Yochi Yochi Shoes}

Captain Zuga, once an outlaw of the high seas, turned away from the pirate lifestyle for a more relaxed career in children’s footwear accessories.  Captain Zuga has invaded my home in the form of Yochi Yochi Shoes on my wee little boy’s feet.  With quality materials and a fun heel squeak, Yochi Yochi Shoes will be your tot’s favorite pair!

My son is about 6 months and is in this strange pre-crawl stage.  By “pre-crawl” I mean he grabs things in front of him and uses them to pull him forwards.  This sliding motion will surely pull off his snazzy new Yochi Yochi Shoes, no?  Actually the shoes stay put through this awkward scoot and slither.  I remember with my first child having such difficulty finding baby-size shoes that would stay on.  Much like socks, my daughter was always managing to pull them off!  This is a good sign for his walking days.

Yochi Yochi Shoes fasten with strong-holding velcro, which is both durable and easy to use.  They are made of high quality nylon and feature durable rubber soles.  Super comfy, Yochi Yochi Shoes are very soft on the inside.  Best yet… they squeak!

My son is so mesmerized by these shoes.  When I grab the heel and make them squeak, his eyes bulge and his face contorts into a big “O”.  The elusive squeak keeps him focused on the shoes for incredible periods of time.  It’s pretty funny to watch and hey, who doesn’t love a content baby?

it JUST squeaked!

Now as soon as he is able to start walking around, he will be so thrilled with the squeak he creates.  This is great for finding little tots around the house — just follow the squeak! 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.

I happen to love Captain Zuga, but if he is a little too pirate skull for you, Yochi Yochi Shoes also offers frog, panda and ladybug styles.  I think Prince Kairu, the frog, needs to come to my house as well!  They come in sizes ranging from 4-10.  Remember to allow for room to grow as children will often outgrow their current size within 2-4 months — little buggers!

Also in the collection are coordinating socks (which cannot be worn with the shoes).  These socks have rattles in the toes and my son absolutely adores these as well.  The only problem is he loves them so much. he takes them off immediately.  He’s prefer them in his mouth rather than on his feet!

Yochi Yochi is eco-friendly!  Water-based dyes are used for printing and they even have a collection of rain water to use for production purposes.  Love it!  Purchase these killer kicks online at Yochi Yochi Shoes for $29.95.  Keep in the know by liking Yochi Yochi on Facebook.
