I have two pairs of these now for my 18 month old so he can always have a clean pair while the others are in the wash. Great for slippery surfaces, warm and they stay on his feet too. Can't recommend them enough.
Bought these for our 18 month year old daughter who either wouldn't or couldn't keep her slippers on and having a tiled dining room and kitchen she was slipping and getting cold feet. It's now 6 months later and they are still in great condition, I only wish they made them in adult sizes!!!!
These socks are brilliant! I discovered them online when I was looking for non slip socks to help my 14 month old to get a better grip on our wooden floors and tiles whilst learning to walk.. Did they make a difference? Absolutely!!! I could see a big improvement in his confidence and ability in just a few days, and he took his first step a week after starting to wear them. I just wish I had discovered them sooner!!
They stay on well - I just wear them on him over his normal socks. Make sure you keep them well away from any velcro though, as they snag terribly with it - otherwise they have worn well so far. It would have been more convenient for me to wash them at 40 but I guess the special sole means you have to do them at 30... I think it is definitely worth investing in these socks (I got 3 pairs), as they will grow with my son's feet in the months (and years hopefully) to come, keeping his feet warm when it's too cold to go barefoot and completely negating the need for shoes indoors.
Update: 8 months on these socks are still going strong! I long since got tired of washing them at 30 degrees and always wash them at 40 now... With no ill effects :-)
I decided to buy this product as my 13mo daughter kept slipping on the wooden flooring (no carpet) in our house. The delivery was very prompt, in fact it arrived even before the "estimated date of delivery". The product was as described. It fits very well. Because these socks are made for the age group 6mnths-4 yrs, they seemed quite big at first look. However, once I put them on my daughter, they fitted very snugly. The ankle support is also a very good feature, especially when my daughter has talipes (she has been advised by physio to wear shoes with ankle support). And the most important benefit is that she has not fallen off even once after wearing these socks. I would definitely recommend it to the parents of babies who have just learnt to walk. 5 stars for this product.
Bought pink for a 2 year old and blue for a 4 year old, both of whom will not wear slippers and frequently slip over running around a stone floor kitchen up two wooden steps on to the wooden floored hall at speed. These are perfect. Both children love to wear them and their non slip pattern on the sole means they can still run around at speed playing without one or other of them ending up in tears because they've slipped and crashed to the floor. The design of the sock is great so that it will last a tiny foot just learning to run to a foot large enough to get to the pont where chasng round at speed in doors is all but grown out of !
