This is for anyone getting ready to go to China. If you are getting ready to go, undoubtedly other families have told you that you MUST buy mass quantities of squeaky shoes. "If you don't buy enough to last your child until they are 18 you will regret it!" "They are precious and if you don't buy them, your child will not grow up happy and well adjusted!"
Let me fill you in on a little secret. The only reason those parents tell you that is because they were dumb enough to fall for it too. Yes, the squeaky shoes are cute. But just remember, soon your child will be walking all on their own and this is what you will have to listen to....ALL. DAY. LONG. So before you buy 30 pairs and try to find the luggage space to cart them all home, put this video on a loop for AT LEAST an hour and then decide how long you want to listen to them. THIS is our last pair, and I can safely say that I have no regrets about that.
