It's summertime! The kids are out of school and sometimes it can be a real struggle to get them away from the screen and out of the house. I'm not immune to the draw of using a screen as a babysitter, especially when I have work to do! I run most things around here at MyMayu and there is always lots to do. We don't have a nanny or family in the area, so I am also the full-time caretaker of our two boys. On those days when I need a push, the beach it is! We're so lucky to live where...

We've been getting a lot of emails from people these days wondering about the difference between our line of Muddy Munchkins Boots and our Explorer Boots. This is totally understandable, since photos on a screen don't always translate into real life experience! We strive to provide the best customer service and experience with our products, so we thought we'd dedicate a special post about some of the differences and what they mean when using our boots in common outdoor play situations.  In a nutshell, the main difference is that the sewing seams on the shaft (upper) of the Explorer Boots have seam-sealing tape...

OR- Why our boots cost what they cost... It's a fact. MyMayu boots cost more than traditional unbranded rubber boots or snow boots that you can buy at a big department store that sells everything from cheese crackers to blenders and socks. So, why DO they cost more and why is it worth paying the difference? (Because, in our opinion, it is!) Long before we began our journey with MyMayu, I resolved to myself that my boys would learn about the resources it takes to get things to their hands. I started with food. When they wanted to waste food...
