There are some products you don’t even know you’ll need until you go through the process of trying a million others, only to realize that none of them do the trick. Thankfully, Suzanne from MyMayu, a North Vancouver-based company, intervened before I had the chance to see my toddler fall flat on her face because of loose and clunky rubber boots. I didn’t need to see it happen to know that it was possible. Suzanne sent a pair of MyMayu Muddy Munchkin boots ($48.95 USD) and liners ($16.95 USD) in the mail for Maya to try, and right away I saw their potential as the perfect play boot for rainy, muddy days.
Unlike traditional rubber boots, MyMayu’s Muddy Munchkin boots are lightweight, and feature a rubber sole and waterproof, breathable nylon upper that works like a built-in gaiter. The upper cinches at the top to keep water out, as well as at the ankle to keep the boots secure, keeping your toddler dry and safe. These boots also come with a fleece liner – perfect for colder days.
What I Love:
-Fun, playful styles.
-Easy to wipe clean (you can also throw them in the washing machine on a cold, delicate cycle).
-Being lightweight and compressible, they are easy to pack and take with you wherever you’re travelling.
-Toddlers can safely run, jump and climb in these boots without the risk of tripping or the boots falling off.
-You don’t have to change your kid’s pants and socks when you go inside after a messy playtime outdoors!
-The liners are easy to insert by first putting them on your child’s feet and then slipping them into the Muddy Munchkins.
Things to Consider:
-With a squirmy toddler, at times these can be challenging to put on. Most of the time, I win. 🙂
-Be sure to cinch the ankle toggle securely, as this is what ultimately holds the boot on.
Overall, I love this product and would recommend it to any parents with young children. Whenever Maya is wearing them in town I get comments from people – parents and non – about how smart these boots are. They would make a great gift for someone you know!
Look for MyMayu’s new product line, coming Spring 2015!
