Back to School with Myself Belts: Review and Giveaway (Ends 9/19) CLOSED

Saturday, September 04, 2010 Posted by Dina N

I encourage my kids to be independent. Sometimes, their desire to do things by themselves is not entirely matched by the ability to do so. If you've ever seen the frustration of a little person trying to put on a pair of shoes or zip a jacket while yelling "ME Do It!" to their equally frustrated parent, you know what I mean.

Myself Belts is a company that understands how both sides feel. They have come up with the perfect accessory for young kids to show off their independence: a belt they can work all by themselves! The Myself Belt is the brainchild of two moms who happen to be sisters. It's a kids' belt that looks just like what the grown ups wear.

I received the black leather belt for my daughter. As soon as I opened it, I noticed the good quality of the leather and how well it is made. The belt is very easy to put on - all you have to do is snap the end of the belt around the front right belt loop, then slide it through the loops. It fastens securely with Velcro - something kids can easily do on their own. My daughter was oh-so-proud wearing her fancy belt!

Myself Belts come in a variety of adorable designs. Just how cute is the pink one with the ballet shoes! Or the brown one with the polka dots. For boys, there are trains, fire trucks, sports and more. The belts also come in solid colors that can be personalized with your child's name. Since some schools require uniforms and belts are often mandatory there, the Myself Belts in navy, brown or black would be just the ticket for young schoolchildren. Myself Belts for kids come in sizes from 2T to 9/10. Since there is little space for adjustment, I suggest you measure carefully and bear in mind that if you are choosing between sizes, you need to choose up. There are also belts for teens and adults.
