A recent case showed a two year old girl with devastating cuts on her feet after wearing a pair of popular jelly sandals for only half-an-hour!
The child named Esmé Connor suffered deep incisions to her right ankle after wearing the brand new pink children’s size five shoes around her house on Monday morning.
Her mom was devastated, so she decided to turn to social media so she can warn other parents about the $8 sandals, which her daughter received as a birthday present.
Mum-of-two Lisa said: “Esmé was in absolute agony. I couldn’t believe it because she had only been wearing them for half an hour.
“It’s not like she was running around in them for hours. She was just plodding around the house and then came running in in tears.
“There was blood all round her ankle and on the soles of her foot. Of course there will be new shoes that rub, but this is ridiculous.”
The child really wanted to try the shoes on, after they caused her a severe amount of pain, she had removed them from her feet.
Lisa says: “Over the weekend she had a bouncy castle so she wasn’t really wearing her shoes much and Niall put them on her again on Monday morning.
She can’t really talk much so wasn’t able to say they had hurt her.”
“On Monday she was moaning and whining and I initially put it down to being tired. She was playing in the garden while I did some work and that’s when she came in crying.
“There was so much blood and she wouldn’t stop crying. Her dad had to spend an hour calming her down. It spoiled her birthday weekend really.”
