What Are EZ SOX?
EZ Sox are the world’s first training socks for toddlers. The gift of empowerment and “I Can Do It” spirit of the EZ Sox means children ages 2 to 5 and special needs children will be self sufficient, more confident and able to dress themselves.
Created by parents who tired of seeing their young son struggle dressing himself, Eileen and Ronnie Gesser designed socks with pull-up loops on both sides of each sock, and fun graphics on the tops of the socks. In no time, their son was no longer frustrated and proudly dressing himself. Today this fun and easy teaching tool for teaching kids self-sufficiency is the only one of its kind.
Anyone with a toddler/pre-schooler can tell you how heartbreaking it can be to hear your child’s frustration when struggling to dress themselves. My stubborn 4 year old has issues with socks. If they are not on just right they are torn back off and put back on… again and again.
EX Sox sent a pair of pink piggy socks for Emma and a pair of brown doggy socks for Ethan to try. Emma was excited when I told her the pink socks were for her. She liked the piggy face and she was intrigued by the loops on the side. It only took her two tries before she learned how to put them on with the loops. The grin on her face was priceless.
Ethan just turned 2 late this summer, so the entire “dressing yourself” concept hasn’t entered his mind yet. He has only recently shown interest in unzipping his pajamas. After showing him how I used the straps to pull his socks up he grabbed them and gave a few tugs (and grunts) and then gave me a big grin. I am sure as he gets a little older he will enjoy the little bit of independence these socks will give him when trying to dress himself from head to toe.
