Sizing Guide FAQs

Duchess Bubblegum Sparkles, also known as "Sparkles," "DBS" or simply "The Duchess," eschewed the rules of royal etiquette from a young age.

It's not that she wanted to disappoint her parents, she just couldn't imagine living a life banned from Monopoly or squeaking with delight whenever she wants.

As anyone who has ever tried to curtsy with four legs will tell you, it is neither graceful nor ladylike, but an exercise in ridiculousness.

What she longs for is a life free from the spotlight, to discover the beauty of the real world outside the palace walls and away from the paparazzi.Since leaving, she’s held a series of jobs considered boring by conventional standards:

  • Cheese Slicer (the cheese was just too tempting)
  • Stapler (a declining industry thanks to email - people just don't collate like they used to)
  • Envelope Licker (she enjoyed this, but an episode of her favorite comedy convinced her it's too dangerous)
  • Comptroller (glorified accountant, second most boring job)
  • Toll Booth Operator (she loved meeting new people, though they often seemed in a hurry)
  • Sport Clothing Product Tester (that came to a sharp end when she got moved to the hat department)
  • Social Media Marketing Consultant (Most. Boring. Ever.)

Despite forsaking her royal life, The Duchess' presence still commands attention whenever she walks into a room. She is, after all, still royalty, something unique to her extended family and the occasional Hollywood starlet.

She is currently in the second round of interviews to become a sign-holder for a local noodle house where she recently befriended an affable dragon. While she doesn't have actual sign-holding experience, the owner can't deny the fact that a unicorn waving his sign will turn heads, though he does worry that the medium may eclipse the message.

We love 'em! This the second pair we've puchased. I don't think I can go back to any other shoes. My little guy loves the squeak! We get compliments everywhere we go. They are easy to get on and look great too. We're hooked.

Adorable sneaker!

My daughter wore these for 2 days and started walking!!! The squeaks are adorable and everywhere we go people compliment her. She was born 7 weeks early and we have been working with an occupational therapist to ensure she is meeting her milestones. These shoes have been an immense help and assist her with proper walking form. No more toe walking for my little girl!

Fantastic shoes. Great value. Can’t wait to order more!



FAQs


We want to take the stress out of buying online, so if you got the wrong size we'll take care of shipping (both ways, US only). Just contact us within 30 days and let us know your Order #. We'll send you your correct size FIRST, with a new shipping label for the old pair included, so your little one won't have to go without their critter buddies.

The only thing we ask is that you check the size as soon as you get them* and if a size exchange is needed, return them in new condition. We reserve the right to refuse worn shoes.

*If the shoes were a gift for a birthday or other special occasion, reach out to us and we'll work with you if they are still new, but were just waiting to be opened on the special day.


Our Site 90-Day Money Back Guarantee
If you or your little one doesn't love the shoes, contact us! Send them back within 90-days and we'll refund you, but they must be in new condition to be eligible. Applies to US orders only.

If you are an Amazon customer, you must be within their 30-day return policy.


No, we don't sell our shoes through normal stores. Doing so would mean we would have to either:
  • 1. Charge more.
  • 2. Not use such premium materials.
(Yeah, we don't like those options either.)


Our shoes run pretty true-to-size but it's always a good idea to check out our sizing guide.


The squeaker in the sole of your kid's shoes can become damaged in sand, water, or mud. If you want the squeaker to keep working (and we know at least your kids do) we recommend not getting them wet or sandy.


Yes! We have many customers that use orthotics, we typically suggest buying 2 sizes larger than your child's un-braced foot size in order to fit the braces. For more info see our "ikiki™ Mobility" page.


Standard free shipping (US only) takes about 3-5 business days. If you're eager to get squeaking, faster shipping options are available at checkout.


Usually this is caused by one of three things:
  1. The squeaker is turned off
    If you can see red on the squeaker then slide the switch to the other side. (You might be reaching to slide it back to the off position soon).
  2. Your child isn't quite 20 lbs.
    This usually only happens in the smallest sizes (3, 4 and sometimes 5). To test it squeeze the heel with your hand - if you hear a squeak then rest assure that as your child grows the squeaks will get louder and louder.
  3. The squeaker needs to be primed
    Sometimes the squeakers need to be broken in to get the air circulating inside. Squeeze the squeaker by hand ten times and see if it starts squeaking.

If none of these resolves it please send us a message and let us make it right! While it isn't common sometimes the squeaker itself is defective.


It's better not to submerge the shoe - sometimes water can damage the reed which can keep them from squeaking. (And if that sounds good to you we recommend familiarizing yourself with how the "off switch" works).

To spot clean:
  1. Mix a small amount of hand or dish soap with warm water.
  2. Apply with a small cloth or sponge.
    If you have deep stains an old toothbrush can do wonders. (We strongly recommend retiring it after this mission).
  3. Rinse with fresh, warm water.
    You want to completely remove the soap. Repeat as needed.
  4. Let the shoes dry before your next adventure.



We have a great article to explain it!


No! We want to protect our critter friends, so none of our shoes use any animal products. ikikis are Vegan friendly
