Frogs and Snails and Puppy Dogs Tails

That’s what little boys are made of?

I’ve always been a little uncomfortable with the very gender biased rhyme: What are Little Girls made of?

I know quite a few young ladies who are not all sugar and spice and all things nice.

BUT it has given me the perfect opportunity to theme some more cute little crocheted booties for boys (and girls).


Here are the booties inspired by frogs:

Yellow frog booties

Ribbit, two frogs in a box

crochet frog baby booties

Green sole and soft yellow upper

Frog booties for babies

Fastened securely at the ankle with a spotty green button.

These darling froggy feet would fit newborn and stretch up to 6 months of age.

They’re soft but hardwearing, made in acrylic yarn.


Here are the ones inspired by snails.

Blue snail infant crochet booties in the box

Jewel blue with a snail or two

They’re made with beautiful royal blue acrylic yarn, making them hard wearing and easily washable. They would stretch to fit up to 6 months of age and the t-bar strap fitting makes sure they stay on those little kicking feet.

snail shoes crochet boys

Cute as a snail button.

These lovely blue booties are fastened securely with a smart pinstriped blue button  and are decorated with a crocheted cotton leaf and a hand painted smiley wooden snail button. Just totally adorable. I think they’d be appreciated by boys or girls.

Puppy Dogs Tails?

Maybe not. Will purple traffic lights do?

Here are some very smart purple shoes

Purple booties with chocolate brown soles. Yummy.

Again these adorable baby shoes will stretch to fit up to 6 months of age.

I think all these booties are suitable for boys but would also look really cute on girls too.

Girls can be made of *frogs and snails and puppy dogs tails as well can’t they?

* disclaimer

I’m aware that the original rhyme goes … slugs and snails and puppy dogs tails…

but frogs are just so much cuter. I mean, slugs? Ugh. They’re just homeless snails aren’t they?
