Whenever we go to a department store lately, my youngest daughter always seems to seek out the same thing…character themed sneakers! I have repeatedly informed this child that I have absolutely no intentions on buying charater sneakers. But for some strange reason, she is keeping hope alive.
Here in “the boot” (Louisiana), the kids are still on holiday. Each time that she gets TV time, a Sketchers commerical seems to come on. The shoes that they advertise on this particular commercial aren’t “charater”, but pretty darn close with all of the colors that are on them. Now she’s asking for those because they aren’t “character shoes”. Umm, I don’t want to purchase rainbow-ish ones either…so thanks alot Sketchers.
Growing up, the last thing a kid wanted was sneakers with a character. We were more concerned about the brand…how well it went with our outfit, things like that. So tell me, am I being unreasonable? Would it be as big of a fashion “don’t” for Twinkle as I’m imagining? What do you think?
