Possibly. Depends if she liked them and what mood I was in.

Yeah, probably.

Loads of things say not for under 3s,and I bought them for my under 3 year old.

Guess it is just a judgement based on your own DD / DS

she loves putting on other peoples shoes,
i think she would love them.

shes pretty steady and big for her age

so many toys say not for under 3's

im sure it's just to cover themselves 90% of the time

I wouldn't be stopped by the "under 3" limitation - in a lot of cases it just means they don't want to go to the trouble of having them certified safe for younger children, specially when they are likely to appeal to 3/4 yo more than younger ones anyway. Just make sure they don't feel too flimsy or have bits which could break off.

ok thanks

i will get them next time then


dd will be pleased

I think it's a lot more expensive to get a product approved for under 3s, which is why all the fun stuff is 3+.

Obviously if your child's still putting everything in their mouth then there are things you might want to avoid, but at 2.4 she'll be well past that stage!!

Generally stuff is marked 'not for under 3's' because of danger of bits coming off and choking. However, I think a lot of manufacturers put this on to cover themselves.

depends-if theyre silly high heel dressy up shoes no.someone brought some for dd when she was little and she nearly broke her neck.we throw them out.
