Over and under, then looping it through look what I can do! Few things will give your child more satisfaction than mastering shoe lacing and basic tying skills. This brightly colored wooden high-top sneaker will make practicing these skills enjoyable while it helps your child reach this developmental milestone. The wooden tying shoe is made of high-quality, hand-painted, durable wood and it's sized right for little ones, measuring a little over eight inches long and five inches high. The lacing shoe comes with an extra-long lace making it easier for little hands to maneuver and tie. The developmental toy is not only fun to play with, it also helps kids practice fine motor skills, eye-hand coordination, and gives them a feeling of accomplishment and independence. The Melissa & Doug Wood Lacing Sneaker makes a great gift for preschoolers ages three months and older, for hands-on, screen-free play. Melissa & Doug products provide a launch pad to ignite imagination and a sense of wonder in all children so they can discover themselves, their passions, and their purpose.
