FLIK FLOPS are an innovative and patent pending design in light up flip flops for kids that are fun and functional. The LED lights on the outsole of the flip flops flicker with each step creating a vibrant lighted path while kids walk.
The idea originated from the inquisitive mind of a seven year old as she stood at a flashing crosswalk while on a family vacation in Laguna Beach. As the family waited to cross the street, the 7 year old said "Wouldn't it be cool if they made light up flip flops for kids to keep us safer at night?" And that's when the family realized such a product was not available. We've seen light up shoes and sneakers, but never flip flops like these. The rest is history. Kids love the interactive design and parents appreciate the added visibility of the LED lights especially at night, providing added safety as kids walk and play.
FLIK FLOPS was launched in 2014, as a family business engaging the entire family of five. With three kids under the age of 10, the project was a collaborative experience where everyone had a part in the design and creation of the business. The 7 year old came up with the idea, the 6 year old with the name and little brother helped in quality control, in other words testing the durability of the product.
FLIK FLOPS is proof that children sometimes have the best ideas.
