Re: Would you buy these for your daughter?

I would. I think they're adorable, and they're not meant to walk in.

I agree with all of these. I've been planning on buying my 2 year old a pair of dollar store "glass slippers" which have small heals (for dress up), but when she was a baby I barely remembered to put socks on her so it would be a waste of money for me.

they're not my taste though, so no, i wouldn't buy them
Because I'm a mother to three young girls, I see this in a different light. I walk into a seemingly "normal" girls clothing store and am met with strapless dresses, booty shorts, rhinestone infested boot cut jeans, teeny tiny bikinis, etc... All meant to do what? Look cute? Be funny?
It's not funny. It's not cute. It's ugly and demeaning. It's teaching young girls that the earlier they look like a full grown woman, the better. Teaching them that it's better to wear a pair of pleather, zebra print, uncomfortable heels than it is to enjoy their simple lives and remain uncomplicated by the complexities of adulthood.
Am I a prude? No way. My girls wear simple and tasteful clothes including tank tops, bathing suits, shorts, sundresses and sandals. And, dressing up falls into a whole different catagory. These shoes are designed to fit infants 0-6 months. Not a 2 or 3 year old who has an interest in Cinderella and wants a pair of slippers in order to better imitate her current idol.

Once again :
Disgusting!

Rant over. I'm out.

Re: Would you buy these for your daughter?

hahaha i love those shoes, i think they are hilarious!! but i wouldn't buy them due to the price tag up here. at $40 a pair of shoes, yeah NO!

although, if i did have a pair, i'd prolly use them on her when in the jolly jumper for a good hilarious picture.

Re: Would you buy these for your daughter?

I am ambivelant about them. They are cute but ugly. I can't decide if I would put Kenzie in them or not.

Re: Would you buy these for your daughter?

Ok for all those who think these shoes are "sexual" in some way - what's the difference then of putting your LO in a bikini for swimming or those little short skirtie dresses?

I forgot to add in my answer that I wouldn't spend $40 on them though
