“I LOVE my Woody!” Dear nappy designers, please, just think

Posted in Family.

Dear nappy designers,

I know you have lots of things to consider when dreaming up a new waste catcher for my little one.

Will it leak? Will it be comfy? Will the side straps break during nappy battle with a squirming tot, that sort of thing.

And no doubt sales are at the top of these considerations, which is why it makes sense to latch on to the latest kid-trend.

Like the new Toy Story movie.

But you didn’t really think things through with that one, did you?

“Mummy! I love my Woody!”

Hmm, now I’m really thinking too much into things.

“Violet got crabs”

So nappy designer, as you can see, you got it a bit wrong with Woody, and I am sure you’re taking note but can you please pass this memo onto your fellow nappy designers in the UK?

It looks like they’ve made a similar faux pas, not with Woody (they didn’t have the same big movie budget as you!) but by putting an animal that also has the same name as a sexually transmitted disease on theirs.

Yep, “Violet got crabs” as the sister of this crab-wearing nappy bub likes to declare.

So please, nappy designers, just think.

Dear Sainsbury's, I just wanted to tell you the trouble I have had with your nappies. Firstly, your nappies have been…
