zooligans.jpgIn recent months, Violet has made it abundantly clear that she is a full-fledged toddler. Soft-soled shoes were perfect during her early walking months, but now she needs footwear built to withstand her jolly stomping (ideally, in her opinion, through puddles and mud). And boy does she love her Zooligans. Featuring 10 critter designs of sturdy yet flexible construction, these shoes are fantastic for busy toddling (keeping feet dry through said puddles) and are easy for parents to manage -- both via the wide opening and Velcro strap, and because the cute styling seems to negate getting-dressed battles. Vi -- who we refer to as Po (a la Kung Fu Panda) -- always nods a vigorous yes when it's time to put on her panda shoes.
