Toddler Ends Up Bloodied And Crying After Wearing Jellies Sandles


Here’s one of the worst parenting scenarios: your child complains that something hurts, a tooth, or an itchy shirt and you tell them to tough it out only to find that their tooth was infected or their shirt was giving them a rash. Sometimes kids complain about the tiniest irritations, but we’ve learned that we can’t ignore the small signs. Trust us, it feels awful to find out that you’ve ignored an actual injury.

Remember jellies? Not the candy, the shoes! They came in fun sparkly colors and could be worn right through a sprinkler party! When you put your kid in sandals to go out and play, the last thing you want is for her to be in pain. What is the point of kids’ sandals if not for carefree summer fun?

English mother Lisa Connor put some new pink jellies on her two-year-old daughter, Esme, and couldn’t believe what they did to her feet. She told MetroUK, “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.” The pictures are painful to look at. Esme’s feet are bloody all along the outline of the shoes.

Lisa thinks the store that sold the shoes should pull them out of stores.

“I think they should be taken off sale before any more children get hurt. She’s not been able to put any shoes on since,” she said.

“Other parents saw my pictures and messaged me to say they had similar problems. I hope it doesn’t happen to anyone else.”

For their part, the retailer has said this is their first complaint about the shoe, and they will investigate it.

We hope Esme recovers and is able dance and play and do all the things that kids should be doing with their feet all summer long!
