WeeSqueak Review & Giveaway CLOSED

CLOSED
I had such a difficult time finding shoes for the twins that I liked and that wouldn't break the bank. Wee Squeak shoes are both comfortable and stylish; great for any season. Not only that, but there are so many designs to choose from at a great price, so you should definitely be able to find something you like for your child. They also help children learn to walk properly without even realizing they're being taught.

The shoes squeak (hence the name "WeeSqueak"), but in order for the shoe to do so a child must walk heel to toe. This encourages crawlers to begin walking and toddlers and young children to walk properly and not up on their toes. The shoes are both functional and fun for children, and parents love the safety feature of knowing where their child is at all times. But, for those occasions when the shoe needs to be silent or the squeak is driving you mad, the squeaker can be removed easily (by an adult).

My Take
I was lucky enough to be sent the above shoes for my son. I needed something that was dressy yet comfortable for him, and there were so many styles to choose from that it was a difficult decision. We had a little trouble figuring out which size to order, but WeeSqueak was nice enough to exchange the pair that was too small for one the right size. This particular style has both black leather and canvas with a double velcro strap. I highly prefer velcro to laces at this age, because my son is way too young to know how to tie his shoes. But, when he's ready, there's a pair of fancy lace-up shoes that I already have my eye on. Or, if you prefer, they have loafer style shoes with no laces or velcro. And those are just the ones for boys! They have a ton of girl styles, sandals and tennis shoes as well.

As for the squeak, it did get annoying after about 30 seconds, and I would worry about it driving others crazy if I was out in public. However, if I was somewhere where I wanted to make sure I knew where he was at all times, I would forgo the annoyance and let him squeak to be sure he was still within earshot. Luckily the squeakers are easily removable and replaceable (took me all of 10 seconds, I believe).
Pros:
  • WeeSqueak has tons of designs and styles to choose from: boys, girls, sandals, tennis shoes, etc.
  • They have children's sizes 3 - 12.
  • The shoes are made well and will last from one child to the next.
  • In the WeeSqueak online store you can even browse by color rather than by style if you need to match a specific outfit.
  • The squeaker can alert you to the presence (or absence) of your child, and you can take it out very easily.
  • The shoes are comfortable, and kids love the squeaking. (At least my son didn't complain while he was wearing them, and he seemed to be REALLY enjoying the squeaking when he walked.)
  • The prices for WeeSqueak shoes are reasonable.
Cons:
  • The squeak gets pretty annoying very quickly, but of course you can remove the squeaker and replace it whenever you choose.
  • The squeaker itself is a choking hazard if/when you remove it, so be sure to keep it in a safe place away from young children.
Cost: Most WeeSqueak shoes are $31.95 + shipping ($$$$).

Overall: We give WeeSqueak shoes a 9/10!
