Review: Silly Kilili duck slippers

Little Miss has a cool little pair of Silly Kilili duck slippers. How cool are they? Let me count the ways.

View of Little Miss' duck feet and legs clad in a clown costume

  1. Legions of toddlers have feet that resemble ducks – each slipper featuring a lifeless duck head propped on top of a slipper. Not Little Miss. Her slipper is a webbed foot. She becomes the duck.
  2. Webbed feet compliment any ensemble. Clown costume? Stove top hat? Fairy wings? Mismatched red and blue socks? Perfect!
  3. Warm fleece and non-skid soles are perfect for our cold hard, slippery floors.
  4. The gait of a toddler looks a lot like a duck waddle. Complete the effect!
  5. They are offered in sizes for infants to adults.

There are also Silly Kilili frog, penguin and dinosaur feet. I bet you didn’t know all of these animals have the same webbed feet, just in different colors. There is also a line of silly hats, including one featuring blond pigtails.

We received the slippers as hand-me-downs. Little Miss loves to tromp around in them. At 16 months, she does exhibit excitement and preferences for different pieces of clothing, and most certainly, footwear. In researching this post, I was surprised to discover that I couldn’t find any other duck feet slippers, except for this pair of infant Flipper Slippers. Has Silly Kilili cornered the market?

    Pretty spiffy, but at $16 a pair I’m afraid I’m going to have to pass.

    That’s $8 a foot, you know.

    Rob, that’s what grandmothers are for! You just have to perfect the craft of hint dropping.

    Consider that a b-zillion people toss $5 for a single meal at McDonalds every week or $20 for two seats at the movie theatre (plus babysitter costs). When I compare the selfish purchases in my life against cool stuff I could give my daughter, my daughter wins much of the time.

    (Of course, as I said, I acquired the slippers as a hand-me-down, and the clown costume in the photo was a garage sale find. Maybe I’ll write something someday about the REALLY cool stuff I’d buy if I were independently wealthy.)
