My granddaughter would walk on her tippy toes, because she LOVED Barbie….and Barbie walked on HER tippy toes,so therefore that was the reasoning. Dumb, reason, I know. She no longer does this as often, and makes me a happy gramma!! I am hoping there are no bad effects on her later in life , because of it. ( gee, thanks Barbie!!!!! NOTTTTTT!!!!!!)
