Please understand these points about Moon Shoes:
•Adult assembly is required. It will take you at least 30 minutes to assemble both shoes. Be careful when stretching the bands. It’s recommended that you hook a thumb into each end of the band and pull and press down over the holding post. Hold the band away from your eyes.
•The directions tell you how many bands you will need based on your child’s weight. Make sure to follow these instructions to prevent injury.
•The elastic bands come coated in a white lotion-like substance. Big Time Toys says this is so they don’t dry out and stay elastic longer. It’s also supposed to make it easier to stretch the bands onto the Moon Shoes. We thought it made the bands kind of greasy, and we ended up with the white stuff all over our hands.
•The package says that the maximum shoe size that can fit in Moon Shoes is a men’s size 9. However, we tried this out wearing a woman’s size 6.5 and our toes were touching the front of the Moon Shoes, so we’re not really sure how a men’s size 9 would be able to fit in these.
