Tipitoes foot impression [review]

I found pretty soon after having Freddie that the gift of choice was a hand or foot casting kit.

Now, whilst they look good on the wall and impressive to imagine, the reality of creating one is not so clean. Wriggly fingers and a caggy handed Mum make for a fine mess of plaster and chaos.

Things are about to change however!

We have been sent the Tipitoes impression kit which allows you to easily take impressions of your baby or toddlers hands or feet.


We choose a blue toddler pack for Freddie and his big feet. It comes in a gorgeous presentation box which contains the impression bricks.

The instructions are simple and straight forward and you won’t believe how easy it is to achieve an impressive foot print.


Freddie sat down and pushed his foot into the brick. It was soft and didn’t require much effort to make a moulding. As it’s an instant result it was easy to keep him interested to see what he had made.


As you can see his foot filled it nicely and the presentation box sets it off so nicely. The kit also comes with two Perspex slides to protect the footprint for years to come. We have saved the other side for our second baby’s print, who is due in May.


You can see how accurate the impression is and how much detail is picked up, I really am so happy with the result and this would make a great gift for members of the family as it takes no time to create a personalised lasting memory.

There is no mess or fuss form the kit and the foam is orthopaedic non toxic for so it’s perfect for delicate toes and fingers.

Freddie was super chuffed with his creation, I think we are going to add his name to it with some small cookie letters just to give it an edge!


The tipitoes kit for toddlers is recommended for ages 06-36mths and is available from Jojo Maman Bebe very soon!

We were sent this product in return for an honest review. All words are my own.
