While I ignore the majority of their Did you see that, Mama?! What was that? Can we have that? questions, there are times that I find myself unable to tear my eyes away from the ad as well. Who came up with something so unique (and why wasn't it me)? And, ahem, does it come in a size/style for adults as well?
Such was the case the first time that we were amazed and entranced to see the most fun kids' animal slippers around, Stompeez.
The original "slippers with personality," Stompeez are colorful, fluffy, soft, durable characters that do more than just look cute and keep kids' feet warm — they come alive with each step! The secret? These comfortable slippers contain an air cushion in the heel of the sole which triggers the funny animation each time your child steps or stomps around.
Considering that the weather has cooled off here in the Midwest and our hardwood floors feel especially chilly to bare feet, I had no doubt that my girls would welcome any of the eight styles of Stompeez (All Blue Puppy, Unusual Unicorn, Growlin' Dragon, Perky Puppy, Be-Bop Bunny, Playful Puppy, Peek-a-Boo Kitty and Sir One-Eyed Monster) for entertainment as well as practical purposes.
Sure enough, when the Playful Puppy Stompeez arrived, it was all any of us could do to not trip over ourselves to have a turn wearing them around.
While Playful Puppy was certainly cute in "resting" mode with her purple floppy ears hanging down on her face, as soon as regular walking (stomping isn't actually necessary) begins, seeing her ears shoot up in a look of happy surprise is just too cute!
Just like in the commercial, my kids have loved the innovative cuteness that Stompeez can provide and giggle pretty much nonstop when they are wearing them around.
The strong, sturdy stitching has shown that it can hold up to a great deal of wear and the thick, cushioned sole is not only comfortable for little feet, but has traction on the bottom for non-slip safety.
With sizes available for toddlers through teens, Stompeez are a durable, entertaining way to add fun and imagination into ordinary slippers.
From slumber parties to just for wearing around the house (Big Sister E wore these at school for a Pajama Party and said that they were a huge hit with all of the kids!), these eight colorful animal characters can pop to life with each step and make an affordable and unique gift at $19.95 plus shipping and handling.
