Sponsorship Spotlight #4: Zookies ***Extra Entries***

I fell a little behind in posting my Sponsorship Spotlight posts for A Merry Fluffy Christmas. Let''s dive in with a Review and spotlight on Zookies. (Sponsorship Spotlight post order was chosen via Random.org)






dozen CLOTH WIPES



In the heart of Amish Country, PA, an elementary school teacher turned stay at home mom was looking for a way to contribute to the family monetarily and stay at home with her kids. Zookies was born. Michele Zook specializes in cloth diaper covers, cloth wipes, reusable snack bags and bibs. Michele was generous in offering a diaper cover for review.



The Review:

We were sent a surprise cover in the mail. I was so excited to get it as Zookies was my first sponsor for A Merry Fluffy Christmas. Upon opening, my son screamed, "DINOSAURS!". Dinosaurs are a favorite as this house with both of my kids, but my son has a special affinity for them. He literally couldn't stop saying "dinosaurs" when we opened it. James asks for this cover by name!

I want to say that this diaper cover is the ONLY product that I've ever used that actually has laundry tabs that WORK!!!! As a fluff addict (Hello, my name is Sarah and I love Fluff.) I've tried many, many diapers and covers. Big name brands to small work at home mommy brands. This is it; the only one that works! The dreaded "diaper chai
n" is what made me a fan of snaps. Well, that and having to pick link and fuzz out of the velcro of my diaper tabs. Laundry tabs, in theory, are a great idea... if they work. And Zookies laundry tabs do! Here's a close up shot. It also shows the quality work that goes into each cover!

You really need to go look at her shop. Michele has some of the cutest fabrics for her covers that I've seen in a long time. She get most of her fabrics from a quaint family owned and operated store because she believes in supporting local "Mom and Pop" businesses; a practice more of us should employ. Right now, the covers are only available in touchtape. Michele has a snap press on order so be on the look out for Zookies covers with snaps!


This is the only "action shot" I could get!


Zookies offers 4 sizes of covers. To ensure a great fit on your little one, Michele suggests measuring the rise (from the belly button to the back waist).

Extra Small: 13" rise (approx 7-11 lbs)
Small: 15" rise (approx 10-15lbs)
Medium: 17" rise (approx 15-25lbs)
Large: 19" rise (approx 25-30+lbs)

Ease of use: Very easy. The touchtape is a lifesaver when changing a wiggly toddler.

Fit: In the picture above, James is wearing a Babee Greens Fitted diaper under the cover. Look how trim it is! Even his smaller sized pants fit on over this diaper combo! I also tried the cover with our Mother Ease Sandy's fitted, which is on the fluffy side. There was plenty of room for Fluffy fitteds. This cover has room to accommodate all different diaper combos and baby shapes! We also never had any leaks or red marks. This cover is a great overnight choice.

Materials: This cover is made from PUL, 100% cotton outer and hook and loop touchtape. I've tried other diapers that have a cotton outer that wick when wet. The cotton outer always stayed dry!

Cost: Between $13 an $15. What a steal!

Overall Opinion: This diaper cover is a favorite with mama, daddy and James. The quality of Michele's covers are wonderful. Great stitching, awesome fabrics and laundry tabs that work puts this cover at the top of my list! Go grab one at her etsy shop.

Don't see a fabric you like? Michele is happy to work with you on a custom order.

***UPDATE***
Michele has set up a new website that she'd like everyone to check out. Visit www.zookiescrafts.com and take a look around.


I want to thank Michele and Zookies for joining us in A Merry Fluffy Christmas Event!
