Review: Trumpette Socks

Trumpette makes some slick looking socks. Grandma gave Little Miss a pair of Trumpette Tippytoes socks a couple weeks ago which are colored to look like Mary Jane shoes, with non-skid lettering on the soles.

I’ve caught myself a couple times, for a split second, thinking Little Miss was wearing shoes around the house. (Sorry, they look a little lumpy in the photo. That teddy bear needs to see a podiatrist.)

These socks are the perfect gift because they’re not something I would buy for Miss. Price-wise I can’t rationalize designer socks. I’m the type of dad who buys a dozen shockingly ugly reddish-pink socks at The Children’s Place because the in-store clearance sale had them for a buck a pair. But Trumpette socks as a gift? Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!

The best part? When Little Miss outgrows the socks, they’ll still look smashing on her teddy bears.

The oddest part? Grandma sent me a link to Modern Day Dad’s post about Trumpette socks. I’m not sure if I’m more concerned that my mother is reading daddy blogs, or that she may be reading some other daddy’s blog more than mine.

    I love them too. When my son was in his first year, I bought a 12 pack of socks for him (monkeys and stripes) after we had gotten the stars as a gift. They lasted all year long and rarely (if ever) came off. I am practically obsessed with these socks.
