Daughter loves -and yes, keep glue gun handy
on October 31, 2013
I bought these for my daughter's 4th birthday along with a couple of dress up costumes. These were the biggest hit. When she talked to her Mamo on the phone, she talked about how she got "up" shoes as a present. Somehow these girls just notice details like heels and whether princess dresses go to the floor. She wears them more than I'd like - even though we restrict her to wearing them in the house. I justify it by thinking it's better than her twisting her ankle on one of my pairs of heels - which is what she had been doing.
For the other reviews - yes, I'd read them and knew I had a glue gun and was prepared to use it. Good thing too - I was repairing two within the first week! I have two more in the works, and it's still less than a month since I bought them. However, it's not rocket science. So if you have a glue gun, 5 min of time and a girly girl who would love some "up" shoes, I highly recommend.
July 24th, 2014 update - we've had these for 9 months now. My daughter still loves them and I am still making repairs. One night the flower will come off the shoe, the next night the gem will come off the flower, the next night the flower will come off the stem! I stand by the original review - if you have a hot glue gun, the repairs are so easy. If you don't have one, invest in one because it'll be handy for repairing other cheaply made stuff you buy for your girl... costume jewelry, costume crowns, etc.
