Christmas Countdown – Day 1

While the girls have been asking for quiet entertainment like dolls and art and craft supplies, our one and only son has been begging for a gift that’s a bit more exciting. He really enjoys spending his free time outdoors: running, kicking, bouncing, jumping, racing, as long as some speed is involved he’s happy. With this awesome Razor present waiting for him I have no doubt he’ll be spending the entire school holidays outside:

Snap, Strap and Roll! In just three simple steps Razor Jetts (RRP $49.99, age 6+) transform an ordinary pair of shoes into the coolest set of wheels.

razor-jettsJetts ‘Heel Wheels’ are designed for street-smart kids who love trying out different things and mastering a new skill, changing from walking normally to riding on your heels will require a bit of practice! Jetts are super simple to install, simply snap the ‘quick click’ frame onto your shoes, fasten the ankle strap for a secure fit and you’re good to go. The multi-fit design caters for shoe sizes US Youth 12 to Adult 12 and suits users with a maximum weight of 80kg, I think I might have to give it a try too!

jetts-razorTo add to the fun Razor Jetts come with removable spark pads that emit localised sparks when you’re cruising the neighbourhood and the spark pads come in contact with hardened outdoor surfaces. If that doesn’t make Razor Jetts the hottest Christmas gift of the year for active boys and girls I don’t know what will! Razor recommends leaving the spark action for ages 8 and up.

See Kai Run

When you have a big family like ours hand-me-downs are often the norm, in fact some of our baby girl’s clothes have been worn by all three of her sisters before her! The one thing we do buy new for all of the kids is shoes, as we feel their growing little feet are too important to be wearing footwear that has been worn down by older siblings.

With five pairs of feet that are growing rapidly we’re due for another big shoe shop and luckily for me it happens to be sale time at See Kai Run stockist Shoes of Seddon.

LeeannSee Kai Run has kids’ feet of all sizes covered with three great collections: Smaller, See Kai Run and Kai.

Stepping out in style with Bobux

With the spotlight on ‘Back to School’ it’s all about our oldest three kids at the moment. Trying on uniforms, picking new backpacks, testing out lunch boxes and drink bottles… it may seem like miss Sybbie is missing out on all the fun but with her 3rd birthday just two weeks away she is getting ready for her own dose of excitement.

Bobux Sybil

It feels like yesterday that we battled to get some food into our tiny baby who was struggling to grow, now she measures almost 1 metre tall! She is such a cheeky, active girl and sitting still is definitely not her thing. She is always on the move, climbing, running, chasing, jumping, skipping, hopping as fast as she can and ideally as loud as she can too.

Bobux climbing

Her long, skinny body is not always as coordinated as she would like it to be so not a day goes past without a little slip, slide or fall, it’s good I keep a big supply of band-aids on hand! A good supportive pair of shoes is an absolute must for her growing feet and preferably a design that looks lovely, is non-slip and able to withstand the rough and tumble of active kids as well… I know, we have quite a wish list.

Bobux wood

At Bobux they understand that when it comes to children’s shoes parents don’t just want ‘cute’, ‘pretty’ or ‘cool’, they want quality, support, durability and comfort to encourage healthy, strong feet. Those little feet have to last a lifetime so, even though they will be hiding in socks or shoes most of the time, they are not something to mess around with. Children’s feet are serious business!

Wildflower Mary JaneLuckily the foot experts at Bobux know that the eye wants something too so they have combined al those must-have features with awesome looks that kids (and their parents) love, no wonder Bobux footwear is a hit around the globe. After careful consideration we decided the beautiful Wildflower Mary Jane (RRP $80, size 20-29) ticks all the boxes for us and miss Sybbie is super chuffed with her ‘red flower shoes’, happy faces all around.

Bobux solesThese versatile Wildflower Mary Janes are sweet and strong, flexible and feminine, comfortable and cute, safe and supportive, leather and long-lasting… they simply have everything we look for in the perfect girls’ shoe. Sybbie can be quite fussy with clothing and shoes and if they are ‘not right’ she will let us know immediately and refuse to wear them. For her to be happy with these gorgeous shoes says a lot.

The vibrant red colour is bright and cheerful and the leather is soft and beautiful quality. They really go with everything in her wardrobe and look lovely with bare feet in Summer but awesome with tights in Winter too. Also important: Sybbie loves being able to put them on and take them off herself thanks to the Velcro strap, our little miss independent is growing up…

Clarks

Brought to you by Nuffnang and Clarks Australia

While we are busy enjoying the school holidays the first day of school is slowly sneaking up on us. In a few short weeks the twins will be big Year 2 students and Juliet will start reception, I am not sure if I am ready to send another baby off to big school just yet!

Clarks 1

While she is very excited she is also a little nervous about the ‘big playground’ so last week we went for a little try-out at the school. We used these 5 simple tips to help her be confident and relaxed when it’s time for recess play:

  • Play Equipment – We took a closer look at the different climbing frames, slides, bridges and tunnels and tested them out thoroughly. Juliet is quite worried about falling or slipping so sturdy shoes with good grip will help her to safely cross wobbly bridges and climb thin ladders.
  • Playground Layout – When you are only 5 the school yard is one big, scary maze and it can be tricky to remember where you are. We’ve shown Juliet the easiest way to home base: her class room.
  • Toilets – When you are busy having fun children tend to leave toilet breaks until the very last minute. Making sure they know where and how far away the toilets are will help avoid messy (and embarrassing) accidents!
  • Heights – Juliet has a fear of heights, so after trying out the play equipment and checking the ‘escape routes’ she is less likely to get stuck up high and not being able to get down.
  • Office – Hurt, lost, worried or sad? There is always help available either from the teacher on yard duty or the lovely ladies at the office.

Clarks 3

We’ve also tried on a real school uniform, picked a nice backpack, labelled her pretty lunch box and bottle and measured her up for a good pair of school shoes. As you may remember from last year we have had a great experience with Clarks in the past so we’ve opted for the same quality and durability again for our next schoolgirl. Clarks has been around for more than 170 years, supplying Australian families with the original and best school shoes for growing children’s feet.

Clarks 4

Our bright and happy Juliet is a very active girl who enjoys running, skipping, climbing, jumping and swinging, so we need shoes that are tough enough to handle all the rough and tumble that comes with playing and exploring. As she’ll be wearing school shoes five days a week, seven hours a day it is more important than ever to be fitted with sturdy, supportive footwear that won’t fall apart after one term. When it came to picking shoes we gave her a few options and she decided on the Ventura, because ‘I can run very fast in them’. Pretty good selling point if you ask me!

Clarks 2

With its scuff-resistant leather toe and non-marking sole the Clarks Ventura (RRP $89.95, size 8 Junior – size 6 Adult) is a great sports shoe that is perfect for both school and play. It is available in 4 different colours to comply with most school uniform regulations, Juliet opted for the white/silver look which is nice and neutral. She hasn’t mastered tying shoe laces just yet so the quick and easy Velcro straps are ideal. The shoe experts at Clarks understand how quickly little feet grow, which is why the Ventura has a removable innersole to provide some extra growing space and longer wear; great value for money!

Clarks 5

If you are lucky enough to live near a Clarks store make sure you pop in for the 10-Step Check by one of Clarks specialist trained fitters, that way you are guaranteed to get the perfect, healthy fit for your child. If you live a little further away and want to order online make sure you refer to the Clarks website for some handy tips to confidently measure and fit at home.

Christmas Countdown – Day 11

If you are anything like me you have picked your children’s Christmas clothes well in advance, ready to be worn on the big day. I decided on five lovely outfits and even sourced the hair accessories to match but only this week realised I forgot all about the footwear, oops! Upon closer inspection some of their shoes really aren’t up to Christmas standards anymore so I did some quick shopping to complete the look.

Skeanie Mary Janes

Just like her older sisters our cheeky Sybil is crazy about shoes, I wonder who she gets that from? She is also quite picky and if shoes aren’t 100% comfortable there is no chance of getting them on her feet again. Lucky for me these gorgeous Skeanie shoes totally passed the test.

Skeanie Snug BootsAustralian footwear label Skeanie ticks all the important boxes: the range is stylish and on trend, the leather is soft and comfortable, the materials are high quality and durable and the designs are supportive for healthy, growing feet. As an Associate Partner of The Australian Podiatry Association (NSW) Skeanie is putting our children’s foot health first, such a great reassurance. The range is even Fair Trade, how awesome is that?

Skeanie SandalsBoots and loafers, Mary Janes and sandals, trainers and gumboots, the Skeanie collection is always growing and with sizes ranging from teeny infants up to size 41 (depending on the style) they have all kids covered. With the Christmas season around the corner festive colours like red, silver and gold are always hugely popular so you better grab your party shoes before they sell out. How sweet are these Cross Over Sandals?

SkeanieFor Sybbie we decided on the classic Mary Jane shoes (RRP $49.95, available in 8 stylish colours) in timeless patent navy leather, they look gorgeous with bare feet in the warmer months and equally awesome with tights in cooler weather. I particularly love how the elasticised back adds that little bit of stretch to make the shoes more comfortable and easier to put on for little hands and of course the velcro closure is quick and convenient.

Skeanie Mary Jane Navy
