 Profile Picture

Now that Summer is official here, have you pulled out your flip flops yet?  Both parents and children alike prefer flip flops during these hot summer months, so that their feet can breath.  But, ever wonder what else you can do besides painting your child's toenails, to make their stylish flip flops stand out?  Well, do I have the perfect product for you -- Floppets! Floppets are a clever, cute and customizable collection of characters you can attach to anything! 

Floppets allows kids to demonstrate how clever they are by “wear” they attach them!  Floppets can be attached to Flip Flops, Fingers, Wrists, Necklaces, Pencils, Back Packs, Shoe Laces, Ear Buds, and most any other safe thing.

Floppets, How to Flop

  • Floppets are flexible, versatile and provide a way for boys and girls to express their individuality.
  • Each Floppets has a versatile connector and velcro tether so kids can attach them to almost anything.  Floppets can be linked together by simply connecting their tethers, creating instant wrist bands, rings, anklets and necklaces. 
  • Kids can collect, share and trade them with their friends!

Ilyse Brainin, the inventor of Floppets, is a novice in the toy industry and a mom who had the vision to create cool, fun and wearable pets, that go ‘wear’ you go.  She named her creation Floppets after realizing that they are the perfect way to personalize any type of flip flops! Floppets is the newest affordable and collectible novelty that is sure to capture kids’ imagination when they wear them this summer.

I have been using the Floppets with Savannah, and she is having a blast dressing up her shoes, and wearing these cute animals characters as rings.  I can't tell you how many people have stopped us on the street or in the market and asked what these cute things are, and where they can buy them.  And, as a mom entrepreneur and supporter of other mom entrepreneurs, I love that a mom created this product, which I expect to be trending this summer, and for back-to-school.

Help show your support for this mom entrepreneur, and her unique and fun product, buy purchasing Floppets for your children, or to share as a gift.   I plan to order some just in time for Savannah's birthday next month, and add to the children's goodies bags.  They will have a blast deciding where to wear their Floppets, and which one will be there favorite.  Right now, Savannah loves the turtle one, and wears it all the time.

  1. Those are awesome! I always buy Taos shoes, so I have no use for these. I'd recommend them to my friends though.
