cartoon face shoe helper

Cute cartoon faces on the shoes help kids to know which is which.
  [vote for,

My daughters seem to have a tough time putting the right shoe on the right foot.

I was thinking, what if there were cartoon faces on the shoes that looked towards each other when the shoes are on the right feet and away when they aren't.

Then it would be easy.

"Hayfoot! Strawfoot!" http://bible.cc/jonah/4-11.htm
This was needed back in those biblical times, too. [neelandan, Aug 26 2008]


       I remember that my little bruv once had dinosaur-themed shoes which, when donned correctly, meant the upper (and sole) assembled a dinosaur lad for viewing pleasure.

       my dad penned L & R on the bottom of my shoes.

       //"Hayfoot! Strawfoot!"//
But for us non-yokels, unused to wielding a scythe, how does this relate (and also for those of us who can't comprehend Joyce) to footedness?

       How about we put a big M by their mouth, and a big E by their ear. That way, when they get thirsty, (or Thursday, as my little one likes to say) they won't pour a whole juicebox in their ear and it drips all over their new shirt.

       Let 'em walk around and get blisters. THEN they'll learn.

       //"Hayfoot! Strawfoot!"//   

       "Olakkal! Seelakkal"   

       Literally, "leaf-foot, cloth-foot" in my part of the world.

       The disproportionate amount of 'k's would indicate somewhere in Finland.   

       For some reason, my son who is generally very smart, still can't get his shoes on the right feet at the age of ten. [+]

       I am not sure I could visually distinguish a piece of hay from a piece of straw. A leaf from a cloth, yes, if close up and it was not green cloth.
