I'm selling a lot of my old kids clothes as a bulk lot and thought I'd throw in the shoes as well but I can't for the life of me remember what size shoes a 1 year old through to a 2 year old would be in.

It's for a girl, average sizes.

My just turned two year old is in a size six. She's on the 75th centile for everything.

This past year, DD (almost 3) has been in size 5, 6, 7 (7 in the past 2 months or so, and only some shoes).

She is fairly average height/weight wise

my 2 year olds were about an 8...but if you want from 1-2 then I would say size 6-8 would be fine on average.

My 2 years 2 months old DD has just gone into a size 5. She was in a size 4 from about 18 months to about 1 month ago. My SIL says that the shoe size of a child is roughly twice their age.

My DD is 25th percentile for weight, and was 75th percentile for height when she was younger. She is now 25th percentile (more like me and DH now!).

Hope that helps.

My 1yr old has just outgrown her size 1 shoes. She has tiny feet though. DS was in size 5s at 18 months and my niece was about the same

At 12 months DD was just starting to fit in size 4. I bought shoes for her last week (just past her 2nd birthday) and got size 5. She has small feet though. Most of her friends in child care, all around the same age, are in sizes 6-9.

Just turned 1 i'd say a size 4 would be about average, size 5 from about 18 months or so, DD is fairly big for her age and went into size 6 about two months ago(so at about 2 yrs 4 months)

Mitchell at 14 months was in a size 1 but now at 2 years 4 months is a size 6 so his feet have grown a lot in 12 months!

I would say size 3-6.  My DD is current in 4 (sandals) & 5 (sneakers) at 18 months.  She was wearing size 3 (sandals) & 4 (sneakers) at 12 months. And my niece at 2 was wearing size 6 (sandals).
