We are so excited to share new videos on our website that make using and understanding the benefits of Myself Belts even easier. The videos are embedded into our site, but can also be seen on our You Tube channel. We have videos showing how our buckle works and how the belts works (there are videos for kids, teens, and adults). We also have videos to help with sizing which answers the common question of “What size belt should I buy?”. Check out the Myself Belts You Tube Channel to see of our new informative videos!

We had such an amazing response to our “What Can You Do With One Hand Contest!” We may have to make it an annual event as we loved seeing all of the creative submissions. Some of our favorite entries were of kids who could do amazing things with one-hand because they have to, as they only have one working hand. Check out Emma- she came in a close 2nd in the voting part of the contest. Her video is pretty great! So impressed!
There were a few other inspirational kids that we will post as well. One even submitted his skill of putting on his Myself Belt independently- pretty incredible. The pride he felt when he was finished could be felt by all of us who watched him. Thanks to all who participated in our contest!
We have a fun, new contest that we are so excited about!! The theme is What can you do with One Hand? As you know, fastening a Myself Belt is easy as it only requires one hand. The idea for the contest is to think of all kinds of things that toddlers, preschoolers, and all kids can do with only one hand! Eating, flying a kite, holding hands with a friend, using their Myself Belt- are all great ideas.
We are so excited to see all of the photo and video submissions that people send in(submit through the end of February)! There will be 2 winners. A random winner and a creative winner based on votes during a voting period. We have lots of prizes including Myself Belts, and Kandoo and Boogie Wipes basket of goodies worth $100, and a cash prize of $200! Enter the contest today!
One of our new belts has appeared for spring! It is an old favorite, our navy/green colorblock belt has returned. It has been gone for a couple of years, but was missed so it is back! We are also excited for 2 other new styles to arrive in about 2 weeks so stay tuned! We have 2 new fun and fashionable styles that you will love. We can’t wait for you to see them! Spring is in the air….well, almost!
This is an exciting time of year for many reasons at Myself Belts. We love the hustle and bustle of sending off holiday gifts and writing gift notes. We also love giving ourselves. This is the time of year where we donate belts to those in need through the Head Start program. Head Start prepares its students for school and helps lay the groundwork for school success. It is the perfect location for us to donate Myself Belts and help promote independence for its students.
Donating days are a highlight for us as we make it a field trip! We like to size the belts on kids personally to make sure the belts fit correctly and to make sure that the children get a style that they like. It is so fun to see the kids faces as they walk away wearing their new belt, standing a little taller.
Join Myself Belts in helping kids to feel good about themselves and become independent. For every book you purchase on www.myselfbelts.com, Myself Belts will donate one belt to a Head Start child!
Myself Belts was born when my skinny potty training toddler’s pants wouldn’t stay up without the bulk of his diaper. I had no idea that the diaper was serving an additional role of holding up his pants! Without the diaper, his pants no longer fit. This small problem led to the invention of Myself Belts and our easy one-handed belt closure. Myself Belts have fun, whimsical designs that kids want to wear, which makes keeping their pants up fun. Myself Belts have become a potty training aid that promotes independence, solves a common problem of droopy drawers and makes life easier for all- parents, teachers, etc! This fall we added a smaller size, XXS,currently only available in the ABC belt for younger kids who are potty training or just need a belt. We are really excited about this new infant/toddler size and it will be available in additional styles soon!
As the summer comes to a close, I have been thinking about what summer means for my family. What it gives us and how it refreshes us.
Literally our kids grow in the summer. Is this psychological? Do they grow all year and we don’t notice? Or, does the downtime, sleep, aimless play, and quieted mind make them grow? It is amazing how they change inside and out…being carefree, I guess makes us all sprout a little!
As a mom, summer for me is about slowing down, re-centering and refocusing. Summer kind of becomes a time of resolutions, more so even than the new year. How do we want to engage our kids in the summer? What do we want the new school year to bring? It’s a time to change gears, spend less time in the car being a taxi for my kids, let myself indulge in a book or 2, and engage with my kids differently.
Yes, the house can be crazy with noise, mess, and chaos, and sometimes I crave the structure that the school year brings. But watching my kids read for pleasure, choreograph dance routines, engage in imaginative play, have lazy mornings, and overall witnessing the independence that my kids gain over the summer makes the time so special.
So as we all say goodbye to another summer, hopefully we can hold onto the refreshed feeling throughout the year to come.
Spring brings the rain, and we sure have had a lot of it in the midwest! When there isn’t anything pressing to do, rainy days are like a gift. Hunkering down, it’s like pretend time. We have discovered Catchprase in my house- a fun game for all ages. My kids like to read, play dress-up, listen to music and unwind. It is great time to reconnect and have some family fun. Would love to hear your favorite rainy day pastimes with your kids. What are your favorites on rainy days?
We are so excited to announce our new slide on buckle! This buckle can slide onto any of our child belts for a more “traditional look”. The function is the same as always and the buckle is just for show! The buckle can slide off of the belt once your child outgrows it and then can slide onto a new belt.
