I thought of Maia yesterday. I saw an advertisement for Vans sneakers. They now have Hello Kitty sneakers. Perfect for Maia!

I know exactly what you mean. Lovely bentos, by the way. I just love the fact that they're vegan.

Maia needs new sneakers actually! I know Target often sells them, but I'd love to know of other places. I need to get some for myself I think!
