Barbie Shoes Are BANNED In My House

I love Barbies and I love playing Barbies with my two little girls. But my girls are 3 years old and almost 2. So they have a total of 3 Barbies, with maybe 2 outfits between them. The first thing I did when the Barbie boxes got opened? Threw away those super cute Barbie shoes.

I made sure I was the one who opened the boxes so my older daughter didn’t have a chance to see the Barbie shoes. I knew if she caught a glimpse of them, I would never hear the end of the crying and whining about keeping the shoes. She doesn’t understand that those cute pink ankle boots are really cute pink choking hazards for her little sister.

Jordan was three when she got her first Barbie at her birthday party from another little friend. Maddy was only 15 months old – the perfect age when babies are becoming toddlers and learning about the world. One of the best ways they learn is by putting everything in their mouths. And cute little Barbie ankle boots would be one of the first things to go in that mouth.

So, I had no choice. I HAD to ban all the Barbie shoes and not allow them in my house. Which is unfortunate for me, because one of my favorite parts of playing Barbies is the shoes. I’m not too old to play with Barbies, and that’s one of the perks of having little girls – an excuse to play with dolls again.

Now that my daughters are getting a little older, we have another little baby on the way. So no more Barbie shoes for AT LEAST another 3 years. By then my oldest will be about 7 years old and will have gotten used to barefoot Barbies.

And you know what? I’m not too sure I want to deal with Barbie shoes. Ever. Even when they’re not a choking hazard for little babies and toddlers, they are still small annoying toys that will disappear only to get stepped on in the middle of the night.

So, the only thing to do is come up with some reason to tell my girls that Barbie shoes are banned in our house forever. Sorry friends, you can bring your Barbies over to play, but leave the shoes at the door.

  1. I can see your concern. Could I suggest that you ‘bag up’ the shoes and keep them for when your children are older. Those shoes are cute and will be great to play with once they are older and past putting things in their mouths.

  2. I have a three year old girl and 6 month old baby boy. My little girl is just getting into barbies and I have been pondering what to do about the shoes as well. I have super glued them to the barbies feet. I suppose he could still chew them off if he gets the Barbie but we will see how this works! 🙂

  3. I was worried about the same thing with my daughter (4) and sone (1.5) so I hot glue all the shoes on immediately when the barbie comes home. My daughter even says so when we’re in the car “mommy, will you glue her shoes on fast so I can play with her?” … she knows the routine. We’ve been in the barbie business for almost a year and not one shoe has come off … they just can’t switch them, which is fine. My daughter is so OCD she wouldn’t want to switch them anyways.

  4. I also have 2 girls, they are now 14 and 6. My friend uses Gorilla Glue in her fish tanks because it holds in the water and it’s non toxic. So that is what I used to glue the shoes on and had no issues. Even the few times I caught the little one chewing on them. (make sure you use the super glue or gel, not the wood glue)
