Size Up Little Feet with the Pitter-Pad iPad App

Measure Them from Heel to Toe at Home

baby feet!

Your child’s little piggies are so cute you can’t go a minute without nibbling them. (Yeah, it’s a foot fetish. So?)

For the love of those precious pedals, check out the Pitter-Pad iPad app. The so-simple-it’s-genius free download measures infant and toddler shoe sizes with a few easy touches. Just set your iPad in front of your tyke, place her bare foot on the screen, and move a digital line to gauge height and width. Within seconds, her shoe size pops up.

Imagine: no more shopping meltdowns (“But I don’t wanna try it on”) or risky online order guesstimates (return shipping stings, doesn’t it?). Instead, you get a fun way to engage your child and watch her grow.

You’ll be head over heels.
