Piggy FAQs

How often do kid’s need new shoes?

Unfortunately we cannot predict the growth of your child’s feet however we do recommend that you use our free check service in having your child’s feet measured and shoes checked every 6 to 8 weeks. Here at This Little Piggy we do a lot of ‘toe checking’, – should your child not need a new pair of shoes then we confidently send you away and advise you with a rough timescale of when to come back and get checked again.


When do I put my child into their first pair of shoes?

First shoes for every child and parent is an extremely exciting time. However please do not rush in to this. We recommend that your child should be walking confidently, flat footed and with no help from furniture or people, for approximately 4-6 weeks. The reason for this is putting a shoe on a little ones foot before he or she is ready can take them back a few stages as they may not have their balance and confidence yet.
You can however at any time come down and have them measurred to see how fast they are growing. Every child is different and if they are walking confidently before this time, come in and we will give you our opinion.


Do you fit with Orhopedics insoles and splints?

We deal with a vast number of customers who have different foot conditions. We strive to do our best in fitting every child’s foot, so we are confident in saying we can most definitely fit a shoe to your child’s foot whatever the case.Furthermore. we do have a great relationship with the medical profession – such as podiatrists and chiropodists who we can call upon should we require additional advice and support.


Opening hours?

This Little Piggy is open between the hours of 9.30am and 5.30pm Monday to Saturday. We do state that our last fit is at 5pm, this is to allow us maximum time with our customers. We can be anywhere between 10mins up to 45 mins with a customer. So we do ask kindly if you could be with us before 5pm to avoid disappointment. If you are just needing to pick up shoes or a gift from a vast selection of toys and accessories, we are available to help up to 5.30pm.
