Product Review: Babyville Boutique Snap Pliers

This is definitely a MUST HAVE for any cloth diaper momma in my opinion!  My new favorite toy!

I purchased my Babyville Boutique Snap Pliers and white snaps at my local Joann Fabric store when I was pregnant and decided I would cloth diaper my baby. I figured it might come in handy if I needed to replace any broken snaps on my diapers or if I ever decided to sew my own covers. These snap pliers are amazing! The set comes with everything you need and even has additional accessories for different size snaps. Its easy to use, well made, durable and takes about 30 seconds to insert a snap!

Another great thing about these pliers is the cost! You can purchase a pair of Babyville Boutique Snap Pliers at Joann Fabrics at regular price for only $19.99 but quite often they are on sale for 50% or you can keep your open for one of their coupons. I got mine on sale %50 off so I only paid about $10 for it. Then the next time I was in, I had a coupon and used it towards a bag of snaps. The pliers come with 1 awl (pointy thing to poke the hole for the snap in your fabric), a screwdriver, 2 rubber pressing heads, 2 washers, 3 die trays for size 16, 20 and 24 snaps (to squish the snaps together on your garment) and 2 shanks (these also help squish the snaps together). The shanks can be changed out to accommodate different sized snaps. I purchased the size 20 white snaps as they seemed to be the most common size snap on cloth diapers. The pliers also come with a great instruction sheet with text and pictures. You could probably learn how to insert a snap with just the pictures alone. For my first use of the pliers I decided to add some extra snaps to some of my One Size diapers to help with wing droop. Each snap took literally about 30 seconds to insert!

There are probably plenty of things you could use these pliers for around the house! I'm good at sewing buttons onto shirts and things but its a pain and I don't like doing it. Hopefully Mr. Bee doesn't mind me discussing his delicates in public but I have to mention this little discovery. I know some men tend to have a boxer button preference. Some men just prefer boxers that have a button on the front. Some men don't care, but Mr. Bee likes a button. I don't know how many times we've been out shopping and Mr. Bee just happens to spot a great pair of boxers in some wacky print that he just has to have. Then he realizes that there is no button. Poor Mr. Bee! He refuses to get them because the button is a must for him but I know hes disappointed. Now as I mentioned, I'm good at sewing buttons on, and I'm always happy to sew a button onto his undies if it will make him happy, but the biggest headache for me, is the button hole. Well no more boxer buttons for me!! Use these snap pliers to add a snap instead of that pesky button and button hole!

Voila!! Boxer snaps!!
