Shoezooz, the educational shoe stickers for kids, have been named to the "O List” in O, the Oprah Magazine South Africa, in the July 2011 issue. Shoezooz were selected to the "O List" as a product considered “just great” by the Oprah Magazine editorial staff. “We are extremely excited that Oprah thinks Shoezooz are great,” says Ellen Lichtman, professional graphic and website designer, mom, and creator of Shoezooz. “It’s an honor to receive this “O List” recognition on our one-year anniversary.”
Shoezooz are fun, educational, durable sticker pairs that adhere to the inside heel of the left and right shoes. Using the concept of a simple puzzle, kids learn to differentiate between their left and right shoes, and put their shoes on right, all by themselves. Shoezooz stickers are geared toward preschool age children, including those with visual learning styles and those with autism spectrum disorders such as Asperger Syndrome.
To commemorate the company’s one-year anniversary, founder Lichtman will donate nearly a thousand Shoezooz stickers to three non-profit organizations: the Asperger’s Association of New England in Massachusetts, Phoenix Children’s Hospital in Arizona, and the Casey Cares Foundation in her home town of Baltimore, Maryland. In celebration of the “O List” selection and their anniversary, and just in time for back-to-school, Lichtman is also offering a “Buy One, Get One Free” (BOGO) promotion on the Shoezooz website.
Shoezooz educational shoe stickers are also sold in shoe stores, gift stores, and toy stores in eight U.S. states, including Lamey-Wellehan family shoe stores, Lucky and New Balance shoe stores, and Learning Express toys. In addition, they are sold and distributed throughout Africa by Shoezooz Africa a division of Koartec Trading 52 cc, South Africa.
Shoezooz educational shoe stickers adhere to the inside heel of the left and right shoes. Printed on the pairs of stickers is an adorable, graphic, colorful image of a friendly animal split in half (the head and front of the body on the left sticker and the tail and back of the body on the right sticker). By simply matching up the animal halves, kids put their shoes on the correct feet, all by themselves. It's instinctual. No reading required. Shoezooz retail for $5.99 per pack of 3 sticker pairs.
Shoezooz were created by Ellen Lichtman, a Baltimore-based professional graphic and web designer and mom. Shoezooz, LLC is a 100% woman-owned business.
