Sorry but it is on so many levels -

1. Makes me glad I had a DS so I wont be pestered for such over priced tat
2. What the hell do photos of puppies and and a make up mobile have to do with shoes?
3. Why do shoes aimed a young girls need makeup with them anyway?
4. The theme song is so irritating it makes you want to bang your head against a wall
5. Its so obviously American with UK voice dubbing on to it
6. They are so f*****g expensive for what they are
7. the whole consumerism peer pressure thing
8. its just so cynical
9. What is a make-up fan ffs
10. They are not even attractive they are f*****g ugly

Sorry just had to get that off my chaest after watching the advert on milkshake for about the thousandth time

I really must start watching milkshake just so I can watch this advert and see what all the fuss is about! grin

Yanbu. Thank you!

YABU... any advert you choose to watch a thousand times is going to be 'nausiating' (sic)

DS wants some Lelly Kelly's, I persuaded him it wouldn't be a good idea grin

GentleOtter Sun 29-May-11 21:43:45

It is like elfin vomit.

Yanbu.

...nauseating. Please.

PhishFoodAddiction Sun 29-May-11 21:44:51

Ha, I totally agree with you!

They are some of the most vile shoes I've ever seen, and the advert makes me want to gouge my eyes out.

DDs (age 4 and 3) love them and keep asking if they can have a pair. I said maybe when they're 10, hopefully they will be forgotten by then! grin

jaggythistle Sun 29-May-11 21:46:55

puppies and make up oh yeah!

makes me want to hurl every time.

Even my 2.5 year old DS says 'Yuk' when the ads come on. We have decided DD can NEVER have a pair ever ever ever. They are the biggest load of overpriced tat but the bloody tune just goes round & round in my head all day - grr. YANBU.

KoolAidKid Sun 29-May-11 22:15:41

Never even seen the advert as we only watch cbeebies in this house for exactly this reason.

BUT 3 yo DD still knows all about these shoes from her friends at nursery. She asked for a pair, and I agreed till I saw what they were like and the price shock
So I took her to Clarks and she chose a pair of trainers with flashing lights instead hmm
Still at least they were cheap(er).

Ismeyes Sun 29-May-11 22:20:10

They are advertising heavy and yes, they are,um, sparkly, but they are great for wide feet with high instep. When I saw poor DD being presented with the most unfashionable Clarks has to offer yet again, someone on here recommended Lelli Kellys as being good for this foot shape. Not only did I cheer DD up with trendy shoes, but I got them for £22 online in the sale and they lasted much longer than Clarks. And they are Italian not American, so nerrr. grin

Dreadful advert, dreadful shoes.

YANBU

Wottywot Sun 29-May-11 22:23:46

yanbu - its Yuk
GAH....I' ve just started singing the song in my head! sad

SarfEasticated Sun 29-May-11 22:28:17

the reason why we watch CBeebies - No Adverts. smile

AgentZigzag Sun 29-May-11 22:29:17

Agree.

But just because you've got a DD it doesn't mean they'll ask for them.

Just making your disdain clear every time the advert comes on soon rubs off on them, until they find fault with the advert whenever it's shown smile

pigletmania Sun 29-May-11 23:36:33

They are very expensive for what is in effect canvas shoes which will not last. You can get similar from Sport Soccer of the same quality for a fraction of the price. They are not very nice either.

LordOfTheFlies Sun 29-May-11 23:57:20

When DD was little she hankered after a pair but there was a girl at nursery she didn't like who had a pair.So thankfully she was put off them because of this.
She's into Converse trainers now (I think £24) but only one pair at a time.

narna Sun 29-May-11 23:59:10

the advert is crap.The shoes are fab,last ages,wash really well in the washing machine,and my DD absolutely loves hers.. so there!
