Hop 'n' squeak shoes
Ach, so many things in the world, so few of them truly vital. And so many of the non-vital ones marketed directly at parents. But that thought aside, Hop 'n' Squeak shoes might be fun.
Designed to get kids up from crawling and onto their two feet (which, let's not forget, they will do eventually with or without encouragement), the shoes feature a small 'squeaker' on each sole, supposedly encouraging the child to walk. Don't worry, if it becomes irritating, the squeaker can be removed.
The shoes come in some pleasant designs for both boys and girls, and the squeak could be a fun extra, it's true.
