Review: Skechers upping their shoe game with Game Kicks shoes for kids

This is my son, IƱigo, trying to win a game on his shoes.

Yes, a game on his shoes! Upping their shoe game with Game Kicks for kids, Skechers just invented a shoe that keeps your little ones entertained with a memory and musical game. This is how it works:



And this is how it looks like:
We got the black one because black goes with everything. Plus my kids LOVE anything robot and tech. I think boys and girls alike will like the black one. But in case your kids don't like robot-y stuff, you might have noticed in my video up there that there's also a black version with flowers.

Here's what the keypad looks like. It's a bit matigas so your kids will need to press hard. I noticed, however, that the more they played with it, the "softer" the buttons got. Okay, soft is not the right word. I meant it became easier to press.

Skechers Game Kicks is P3,395 a pair. We got two pairs for Vito and IƱigo. Vito can follow the memory game, IƱigo not so much yet. But it keeps them occupied! Perfect for keeping kids entertained while you're out traveling, on the plane, in the car, stuck in traffic, stuck at family reunions (hehe), everywhere where they're bored!

Definitely something I'd recommend for your kids to get this Christmas!

Check out the Skechers GOwalk 3 at the following Skechers stores: Glorietta 2, TriNoma, Ayala Fairview Terraces, SM North Edsa The Annex, SM Mall of Asia, Robinsons Galleria, Robinsons Place Manila, Gateway Mall, Lucky Chinatown, Market Market, Festival Mall, Alabang Town Center, SM Fairview, SM Dasmarinas, Paseo Sta.

We're watching Hi-5 House of Dreams in Manila!

We're watching Hi-5 House of Dreams because my kids—all three of my #SalesVIPs!—love Hi-5!

Stevie, Mary, Dayen, Tanica and Ainsley

Well, Vito misses Tita Lauren and Tita Fely but he's excited just the same to meet Tito Stevie (the last remaining member of the old cast), Tita Dayen, Tita Mary, Tita Tanika and Tito Ainsley. Haha, I knooooow—so weird to call them that! It's my husband's fault haha.

Anyway, the fantabulous people of Tremendous Entertainment Group, Hi-5 Operations Pte. Ltd., Resorts World Manila, Vivre Fort Entertainment, HSBC, and Disney Junior invited me and my family to watch the Hi-5 House of Dreams show here in Manila! Thank you soooo much!

The show will be from December 18 to 21 at the Newport Performing Arts Theater in Resorts World Manila. Are you going???

The show will be a big slumber party. Hmm, I wonder if I'll let the kids go in pajamas or in blindingly neon bright colors...



Ainsley, Dayen, Mary, Stevie and Tanika are having a big Hi-5 slumber party a the Hi-5 House. As they enter the magical world of dreams, they find themselves in the jungle, fairy gardens, outer space, underwater, and—this just might be the favorite part of my kids—the world of superheroes! 

Each dream scene will come alive with music, singing, and dancing in this exciting new production! I can't wait for my kids to enjoy this show! Every single day and night (yes, we watch it that much) that we see the Hi-5 show on TV, my kids and I go, "We're watching Hi-5 for reals!" We're THAT excited! We dance with the show, we sing with them, we're kinda crazy about Hi-5.  

So we're watching! Are you? Hope to see you there!
For tickets to Hi-5 House of Dreams, go to Ticketworld.com. Tickets start at P2,400. There are discounts if you're an HSBC cardholder.
