Christmas Idea #5 – EZ Sox (& giveaway!)

If you have a preschooler in your life, you might want to take a look at EZ Sox.  What are EZ Sox?

Well, EZ Sox are known as the “I Can Do It” socks and are “the first and only training sock on the market today for children ages 2 to 5.”  Here is a bit more information from the manufacturer:

EZ Sox are a wonderful gift idea for baby showers, for parents with toddlers, and a great stocking stuffer for toddlers and young kids. For parents of special needs children, EZ Sox addresses a daily need and offers these children self-sufficiency and empowerment.

Created by parents who tired of seeing their young son struggle dressing himself, Eileen and Ronnie Gesser designed socks with pull-up loops on both sides of each sock, and fun graphics on the tops of the socks. In no time, their son was no longer frustrated and proudly dressing himself. Today this fun and easy teaching tool for teaching kids self-sufficiency is the only one of its kind.

EZ Sox have been “endorsed by TV’s The Doctors, Parenting Magazine, Raising a Sensory Smart Child author Lindsey Biel, OTR/L, and Mommy and Me founder/child development specialist Dr. Cindy Nurik.”

You can purchase EZ Sox online or at several boutique-type stores throughout the US.

What do I think?  I think they’re cute!  EZ Sox are available in two sizes:

  • 2-3 years (shoe size 4-6)
  • 3-5 years (shoe size 7-12)

We received a pair of the smaller-sized socks in the Frog style (pictured above, lower right).  Though Ian is 4 and wears a size 10 shoe, he was able to fit into them (I’m sure the larger size would have worked better).  He loved them and wore them for 2 days straight – until I finally confiscated them for the hamper.  He’s been asking now for the past 2 days if I have washed them yet so he can wear them again!  He loves them! 

I like that they have seamless toes.  Though nobody in my family has diagnosed sensitivity issues, those sock seems really annoy me sometimes!  What is the point?  These socks would be idea for children who really are sensitive to things like that!  The double reinforced loops are great for allowing kids to “do it themselves”.  And, since we live in a house that is primarily hardwood floors, my favorite feature of EZ Sox is the non-skid bottoms.

EZ Sox are available individually, or in multi-pack sets for boy or girl (6 pairs).  The sell for $4.99 each, or 6 for $29.94.  In addition to the animal-themed socks, they are also available in 4 solid colors.

OOo I think we'd have to go with the T-Rex (shoe size 4-6). Those look awesome!

That's a really cool idea. I'm glad you shared about them.

The boys would have to have the TRex, my girl (who would likely benfit the most would adore the bunnies or the lady bug) How's that for making a decision. LOL

So cute! They would be a hit around here. My 3 year old daughter loves purple, so I would go with the purple cats. Of course, she also loves her ladybug pillow pet, so the ladybugs would be great, too! ;0)
