I have some cute slippers I'd like to give to my friend's daughters, but I think they might be too small. Then again, my 2-year-old has larger-than-average feet, so I'm basing it off her.

What size shoe does your 4- or 6-year-old girl wear? Is your daughter average size, small, or large for her age? TIA!

my 4 yo dd measures about a size 10-10.5, so we bought her size 11 for her school shoes so they'd last. i think she's fairly average, maybe a little bit larger than some kids her age.

My dd is 4.5 and has worn a 9-10 for over a year now. She has grown a lot in the past year and at 45 inches is very tall for her age. I am waiting for her feet to grow again soon.

My four year old wears size 12.5 and my five year old wears size 1 (they move up to the next level after size 13). Their feet are considered larger than average.

My DD is 4 3/4, and she wears about an 8 1/2. Her feet seem really small compared to all the other girls her age we know.

My DD was 4 in June and she's in a 10.5 - 11, she's tall with a small frame. My 5.5 yo wears a 13 - 1 and she's tall and more of a medium build.

When my youngest was 4, she wore a size 10. My 6 year old measures 12.5.

Kids' feet can vary a lot. I'd just ask her mom what size her feet are.

My dd turned 4 in June and just had a foot growth spurt in which she literally outgrew every pair of shoes except her generously sized Crocs. I think she's now in 12 1/2, but she's tall with largish feet.

OK, this just goes to confirm. My kids have big feet.

Our dd is 3 years 4 months and has outgrown her size 10.5 sandals, so she must be 11.
Ds is 6 and wears a youth sized 4.

No wonder our neighbors keep passing on shoes that don't fit! They gave us a whole bag of ultra cute shoes just a couple of weeks ago that were size 9 and 9 1/2. Dd hasn't worn a 9 since January!
