Crocs that can be bitten

During our recent trip to KL, besides shopping (can't blame me as it seemed like the whole of KL was on sales!!), I've learnt a couple of new things... and one of them was about how hazardous the famous Crocs sandals or clogs that I've been wanting to get a pair for Ethan. However, upon hearing what it may cause especially to children as young as Ethan's age made me changed my mind...It started as I was admiring the Clark sandals that hubby's nephew had on and thought I should get a similar pair for Ethan since he is outgrowing his current sandal...it was then that SIL told me to be careful on the type of sandals to buy as some may cause unwanted accidents especially on the escalator...this was when the Crocs subject came about...BIL who works for a lift/escalator company told us not to buy Crocs sandals for Ethan as there have been many cases where accidents involving children have occurred on the escalator ...and most of the time the culprit is the super light and flexible Crocs sandals...he even told us that in JB, one of the shopping malls actually displayed a warning sign that shows no Crocs shoes allowed on the escalator (talking about being direct..) as apparently there have already been a few serious injuries ...Nonetheless, being the curious person that I am and wanting to know more I did a google on Crocs and escalators and true enough there are many articles on this subject...some incidents sounded really gruesome that you just don't want to continue reading the articles!! So Crocs sandals/ clogs (original or imitation) are out of the question and the only Crocs we have in our home is Mr. Croc ;p

Ohh...I however managed to do a last minute shopping at Isetan for Ethan b4 we left for the airport and bought him OshKosh: flip flop, sandal and a pair of shoes all for RM113 only...it was a buy 3 and you get 50% discount heee...I didn't really know what his exact size was as I've forgotten to take his measurements but nevertheless I bought bigger sizes instead...kiasu or not??!! So there you are, the confession of a shopaholic!!! hahaha...

nevermind about how dangerous croc sandals are. there was a recent case in Perth of a croc BOOTS eaten up by escalator. the poor boy's feet was so twisted (yes, and broken!) that the escalator jammed! lotsa cases in the UK too! It really shocks me to see kids walking in these shoes! Sorry to all the Moms out there who's got their little one's feet encased in these nasties "what are you thinking???"....
