We love Hickies! My 6 year old doesn't know how to tie shoes yet, and with Hickies, that's okay.
Hickies are these incredibly cool looking plastic tabs that go on your shoes, in place of the laces. Jacob can now wear lace up shoes, anytime he wants, because Hickies make it easy.
Last year for Christmas, Jacob's sister got him the coolest shoes, only thing was, they had laces, and no non lace things worked. Hickies would've been great, and now we have several packs of Hickies for this purpose.
You, too, will love Hickies, whether for you or your child. My mother in law now uses Hickies. She says it saves her from bending over to tie her shoes. She loves them, and they are so stylish, on a 60 something woman. And, my 6 year old loves them, because he can't tie shoes. So, to him, the are the perfect little trick.
