Hooray! The little pair of shoes finally arrived.
I was searching for a pair of nice squeaky shoes for Isabelle and preferably in black, online & 'offline'. It was hard enough to find one which looks nice and not too cartoonish or kiddish, it was even harder to find one in black. But found it a few days from an online store. Little Blue Lamb shoes. Leather and soft. And the best part is, the squeaky valve is removable. On days we prefer her shoes to be squeake-less, just pull off the valve and put it back when we are okay for some squeakiness.
The smallest size available for this design is 5/22 (approx 140mm) and it is a little big for Isabelle right now. But I would prefer it to be big and not too small so that it will last longer for her.
Once I unsealed the parcel, Isabelle was all ready to try it on. The first squeak, she paused and wondered where the sound came from. Then second squeak, she grinned. Then came third step, she was smiling and walked round the hall in it. When I wanted to take it off her to store it away, she refused and struggled.
Good sign. She loves the shoes as much as I do. Now, I can't wait for her to grow to fit this pair of shiny little squeaky shoes.
