Set your kids up for shoe-tying success! The EZLeaps shoe tying tool is an easy-to-use plastic card that helps children to tie their shoe quickly, aiding them with the complicated maneuvers for little hands. EZLeaps takes the frustration out of teaching little ones this milestone and makes it enjoyable.
“I came up with the idea of EZLeaps trying to find a tool to teach my classroom of first graders how to tie their own shoes,” says Eileen Sloan. “I realized there had to be a better way than the ‘bunny-ear’ story – and I came up with the first prototype using a coffee can lid.” Soon after the item was ready for sale, Sloan was contacted by Nordstrom to carry the product, specifically for their monthly shoe tying class. EZLeaps offers a how-to video to simplify the process even more. They are available in 12 designs, with a place on the back of each card for the child to write their name and date they learned to tie their shoe, providing a forever keepsake. They can also hang from the backpack or sport bag for extra assistance if needed at school, sports or scouts.
