MyMayu was created out of a necessity. Little did we know at the outset just how much need there truly was... As parents, we found that the traditional rubber boots available for our little boys just weren't cutting it for them- or for us. Face-plants, tears and puddle-soaked pants were the end result of outdoor play sessions and this was putting a damper on our family adventures outside. We knew that there had to be a better boot- but no one was making one that suited our needs. We're pretty humble around here. We're just a couple of crazy parents that thought...

We are thrilled to say that you spoke and we listened! Since launching the Muddy Munchkins and Explorer boots, customers have raved about how their kids love playing in them! They are comfortable, lightweight and easy to use. However, some of our customers were finding that the sleek soles of the Explorer and Muddy Munchkins boots were a bit too form-fitting for their kiddos if they had really wide feet. "Make them wider, please!" was something we were hearing often enough that we knew we needed to tweak the sole design to accommodate wider feet. ALL kids need to play outside!  ...

Just ask a sheep... or llama or alpaca... I'm betting she will agree... WOOL IS AWESOME! It goes without saying that cotton is a wonderful natural fibre and has many uses. My favourite T-shirts are soft cotton and summer wouldn't be the same without my cotton hiking shorts. Lots of people have a drawer full of cotton socks and many of them believe that they are doing their feet a favour by wearing them. Cotton breathes, so it must be the best, right? Maybe it's time to rethink that long-held belief when venturing outside to explore with your little one....

** Please note that this is an older post. While Explorer boots do tend to work with Toddlers, after size 7/8, the Wanderer boots fit over AFOs much better than the Explorer boots. For additional information, please read our newer blog post here. There are good days running MyMayu and then there are REALLY GOOD days! Last week I had the pleasure of fitting an amazing little boy with a pair of our Explorer boots. His mother told me that she had shivers up her spine because she had finally found a boot that fit over her son's AFO braces....

It's summertime! The kids are out of school and sometimes it can be a real struggle to get them away from the screen and out of the house. I'm not immune to the draw of using a screen as a babysitter, especially when I have work to do! I run most things around here at MyMayu and there is always lots to do. We don't have a nanny or family in the area, so I am also the full-time caretaker of our two boys. On those days when I need a push, the beach it is! We're so lucky to live where...
