Today I am happy to share the video review for the new Kissaluvs Marvel. Many of you may know Kissaluvs for their famous “KL0″ which is the newborn size 0 fitted. Now they have come out with a”designer” fitted, which currently comes in three patterns.
Ease of Use ✰✰✰✰
As always, a star has automatically been deducted because of the snaps. The good news is, as far as snaps go, this one is pretty user friendly. Because of the fold down rise, it goes on quicker. Yes, it can be hard to put a snapping diaper (any) on a wriggling baby. There are 6 snaps or less depending on how tight you are snapping the diaper, which can be challenging. I am also going to say that putting a velcro diaper is almost as hard, so it still gets four stars. The fold down rise is very self explanatory for an experienced cloth diaperer, but if the babysitter is coming, you may still want to pull out your AIO or pocket diaper.
Bang for the Buck ✰✰✰
The Marvel retails for 24.95, which is pretty pricey. You can buy a diaper that has a waterproof shell for 10 dollars less. When you consider that you have to buy a cover (which can range from 10-100+ depending on your preference) there are a lot of cheaper options. However, in its category (boutique print fitteds) it is a good price. Similar diapers can cost 35.00. It works as well or better as the more expensive boutique diapers, but if you are looking for something for just function, there are cheaper avenues. If you are after the cute factor, 24.95 is a great price!
This one is a five star! I cannot tell you how happy I have been with the Marvel! In fact, I have been using it as one of my staple overnight diapers. It doesn’t leave any red marks or snap impressions. The absorbency is top notch also! 12 hours and no leaks! I think the proof is in the pudding!
I am going to give this a five star also. I am happy with the weight limits set by Kissaluvs- 10-40 lbs. There are many one size diapers that say they fit an 8 pound baby, but they usually don’t. Kissaluvs has been more realistic. Although I haven’t tested it on a 10 lb infant, I think it would fit one. There is also lots of room for growth. It is a nice and simple adjustment system.
I am very pleased with the Marvel, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a cute and absorbent fitted. There are tons of positives- the look, fit, performance. There are a few negatives- the lack of more “boyish” prints (which I am sure they will come out with at some point in the future), the visible inner which is white (but will most of the time be covered.)
