Jacob loved the idea of drawing on your shoes – although we had to reinforce that it was only these shoes he could draw on, not every pair he owns – and set about creating his ‘monster’ shoes. He wrote ‘Monster’ across the front, drew a few monster pictures and filled in the gaps with a selection of the padded effect stickers.
The drawings are super easy to rub off with the included sweat band/cleaning cloth and the pens would last for ages as you use so little when decorating the shoes, so plenty of scope for further creations. I am fairly sure the pen would wash off if the shoes were worn in wet weather, so they may be best kept for dry days. As for the stickers? I am afraid that this is where the Skribbies fall down for me. They just aren’t sticky enough – most of them had fallen off before Jacob had the shoes on for 5 minutes, and I found them all over the house and garden. It’s a great idea, but needs some tweaking.
All in all? A lovely, fun idea for creative kids, but some extra sticky stickers are required!
