Help Your Child Master Shoe Tying With Melissa & Doug's Lacing Shoe

If your child is at that age where it’s time to start learning to tie his/her shoe, avoid having to undo endless knots in real shoes by getting him/her this lacing shoe ($11) by Melissa & Doug.

We’re obsessed with Melissa & Doug toys because they always have the perfect toys at any given stage in a child’s development. This one is no exception.

Because the lacing shoe is a little bigger than your child’s actual shoes, there’s more room for little fingers to fumble around until they get it right. Plus, on those days when you’re running late, you won’t have to worry about your child’s shoe laces being all knotted from their last shoe-tying attempts.

In addition to tying, help improve your little one’s hand-eye coordination by having him/her lace up the shoe, too. We promise your little one will have so much fun playing around with this oversized shoe, they won’t even realize they’re learning a really useful–and important–skill.
