Shoes You Can Draw On – A Skribbies Review

I was delighted to be invited along with the girls to the Skribbies Pop-Up store in Birmingham. They are there until the 21st April in the Bull Ring.

The girls were really excited to see what Skribbies were like and they were not disappointed.
Skribbies high top trainers come with a set of pens, stickers and a wristband which also works as an eraser. Then you let your kids creativity loose as they design how they would like their Skribbies to look.
Not happy?
Then wipe it all off and start all over again.
Or you can have a new look every day. In fact, they are quite addictive, I’ve already tried out a few designs of my own since coming home, and yesterday we had family visiting and they all had a go a doing a little doodle on the shoes.

Currently Skribbies high tops come with either a pink, blue or black trim. They invite your children to express themselves as they create their own designs. They are well made and the girls claimed them to be very comfy. I hear that regular trainers will soon be added to the repertoire.

Here are my girls showing off their new Skribbies.

The shoes retail at £39.99 and if you can’t make it to Birmingham you can order online at the Skribbies Shop. I think they are great value, not only do you get a decent pair of well made shoes, but you get something unique and fun and your kids will love them.

Here are my girls having some fun decorating their Skribbies at the shop.

Skribbies is a UK company founded by Jennifer Duthrie. We met Jennifer on the day and she really is lovely, that’s why I was thrilled to hear that she is a semi-finalist in Virgin Media’s Pitch to Rich competition. It would be lovely if you could take a moment to vote for her by clicking through to the site Pitch to Rich. If Jennifer wins her category she will get the opportunity to meet Sir Richard Branson and pitch to him for help in her business venture. The voting closes on April 23rd at midday.

Good Luck Jennifer!

Disclosure: We were invited to the Skribbies pop up stall in Birmingham where the girls were given a pair of Skribbies each. All thoughts and opinions are honest and my own. All artistic creativity and imagination was provided by my girls.

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I’ve also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me…is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I’ve loved. If I don’t love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It’s always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I’ll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
