#summerfluffing Zookaboo Skullies Diaper & T-Shirt Set Review & Giveaway! US 7/31




Zookaboo is a small family owned and operated business in the small town of Lancaster County, PA. Zookaboo was started by the desire of Michele to be a stay at home mom with her young children. Michele hand cuts, sews and packages all of her items.



The Skullies t-shirt that matches the diaper is a short sleeve cotton shirt and is available in four colors; green, blue, pink and black and five sizes; 6m, 12m, 18m, 2T and 3T. The t-shirt does run quite a bit small, Ezio is 18 months old and wears 18/24m and 2T clothing, the shirt he is wearing is a size 3T and it fits him great. The shirt also fits Cade, who is 3 years old and wears a 3T/4T, however it is pretty short and sort of snug on him. The front of the t-shirt has a skull applique that matches the diaper cover. This applique is cut by hand, heat bonded and then sewn around the edges for added secure placement. 


The Skullies Diaper Cover (& matching shirt have a value of $27) is made with a cotton outer that is lined with PUL. The inner of this diaper is nice and soft, no sticky PUL to touch babies skin and cause irritation or rashes. You can even use this diaper cover as a swim diaper by it's self. You can choose hook and loop or snaps with crossover snaps/loop. If you choose snaps there are also hip snaps, no more wing droop and with a double row of snaps you get a nice secure fit. If you choose hook and loop, there are laundry tabs included on the inside to secure it while washing. These diaper covers are one size with a rise of 13-19" (rise-from belly button to back of waist) and fit babies and toddler from approximately 10 to 35 pounds.

Ezio is wearing the diaper cover in the photo above, he is 19 months old and 26 pounds with a skinny waist and some what chunky thighs. Depending on what I put on him for absorbency under neath the cover depends on which rise setting the diaper is set on. With prefolds it is usually snapped all the way down. I love this cover! Not only for the super adorable print and matching t-shirt, but also for the effectiveness of keeping everything inside and leaving his clothes and mine dry. I love that the snaps and wings are wide and not too narrow as this way they fully cover all of the absorbent layers inside of the diaper. One of my biggest pet peeves is when a cover's wings and belly panel are not wide enough and leave absorbent layers exposed making for easy leaks or you have to tuck it in and then it's all bunched up and can't be comfortable for babe. I haven't had a single issue like this with the Zookaboo cover! 

Cade has also wore this cover, as stated above he is 3 years old and 39 pounds. Depending on what I put for absorbency under the cover on Cade I can snap it down to the second snap, first snap or leave it unsnapped for the big bulky night time fitteds. I will try to update with a photo of this cover and maybe even the shirt on Cade, he usually tells me "That's my brother baby's diaper." I love that I can get a good fit on both of my boys with this cover even though Cade almost 40 pounds, nearly 5 pounds over the approximate weight "limit". Great diaper cover! Plain and simple!
