Fifi and Toddler boy have to go to the childminders when I go back to work. She is Danish and lovely, she has an even lovelier house which defies the amount of children who go there. Its all wood floors, white walls and cream sofas, like something out of a magazine shoot. Fabulous. Anyhow, the wood flooring poses a little bit of a problem for us as we have carpets and so lounge around in socks and well, feet. I didn’t want an accident on day one, so I have been searching the Internet for options for baby Fifi in particular, as there is no way that she is gonna wear a pair of slippers. Toddler boy, can be bribed (with lollipops)! That was when I came across these Moccis. They are basically little socks with little moccasin fabric soles attached. Being poor, I was wondering if it was worth purchasing a pair, when it came to me. Take Karin’s advice, just ask if you can review them! And that is exactly what I did.
These are the ones I got sent (to keep). They are nicely coloured and match lots of Fifi’s clothes. That’s most important for girls you know! At £18 a pop they are a bit pricey, so I was a bit worried about whether or not they would actually do the job, would she be able to pull them off and would I lose them almost the second I left the house? The answers are as follows;
Yes, they seem to work quite well at preventing her from slipping over whilst pulling herself up to cruise on wooden floors.
Yes, she can pull them off, but it takes an awful lot of effort and determination and no, I haven’t lost them yet…
So, in summary, I think these are actually a really good idea, they are a bit cheaper than proper baby shoes from somewhere like Clarks and I think they are a bit softer for little feet. You can actually machine wash them which is great. They do the job well and I’ve had a lot of admiring comments from different people, including the woman in the shoe shop.
