grip, and cute friendly-faced animals act as a guide to show which
way goes up. Non-skid bottoms make them safe on slippery surfaces
(think middle of the night potty breaks) and each pair is made
seamless for sensitive feet. $4.99 and up. Piggy Toes, 2205
N. Halsted St., Chicago.

regulating body temperature, keeping them warm without overheating.
