Hippo Soft Baby Shoes

Our funky hippos won't mind getting wet when they've been wallowing in the mud!

These cool hippos make super soft baby shoes and childrens slippers.

With a free gift bag our funky footwear makes an ideal gift for new born babies, terrific toddlers, cruising children or kool kids.

These hippos are a pram shoe, a pre-walker, cool for crawling, safe for first steps and wicked for walking.They're perfect for nursery, kindergarten, school or home,

There's more too, check out these funky features:

• Non-slip suede soles
• A "slip-on" "stay-on" design that really works!
• 100% cotton linings (warm in winter, cool in summer)
• +2 years also have soft fleece insoles
• Machine washable - now that's handy mum & dad!
• Free gift bag
• Helps little feet develop "the perfect footprint"

Medical evidence shows that when an infant learns to walk, it is actually feeling the ground through their feet. This promotes good posture and an easy walking style for the rest of their lives and our soft and flexible soled shoes are as close as you can get to being barefoot.

So, not only is our footwear funky, they can also help children develop good posture during those crucial early years when they start to take their first tentative steps!

    Really fun looking shoes and they stay on my busy 9month old's feet. Excellent customer service from Funky Feet and they were delivered quickly. I would definitely recommend them to others.

    Highly recommended!
    I've used this brand for both of my boys, they are without doubt the only slippers that I've ever used that don't fall off.
    High quality, pricey but worth it.
    I wish I could buy all of the range.

    Bought these for my 12 week old son after a friend bought him the tigers as a gift. He loves them and has not yet managed to kick them off! They're well made and fit nicely. Have even added some more pairs to his Christmas list. Definitely recommended

    Gorgeous, soft and comfortable. My little boy loves his hippos and has not wanted to or managed to pull them off which is truly remarkable.

    These are lovely little slippers, so soft and comfy, highly recommend these as I would any of the slippers ! Have had the Monkey and Ice cream ones and can not fault them, they are worn constantly and although show signs of wear and tear they have certainly been used well !
