Quality of Snaps from China

Post by spikybrain » Sat Dec 30, 2006 10:47 am

Hi Ladies

I've been reading this forum with interest and have just about convinced myself to go for the "China" deal, but I wondered if anyone could comment on the quality of the snaps (we call them poppers) that are sold by Serena?

Here in the UK some of the snaps on the nappies aren't that good and I wondered how the China snaps compared to those on Motherease nappies and wraps because these seem to work quite well (assuming that Motherease put the same snaps on all of their nappies and wraps :? )

Thanks, Jacqueline

The snaps Serena sells are KAM brand - it's the best and most well known.

Just an update to say that my snap press has arrived - only took 10 days and it looks as though there are more goodies in the box than I had ordered.

Have to go and play with it now :lol:

I had a slight technical hitch, when I put the poppers on I couldn't get them to pop together, until DP came along and tutted and showed me how to do it properly - guess whose job it is now to put the poppers on :lol:

If I figure out how to do the photo thingie I will post some pics, I've been working with bamboo velour and am really quite excited that soon I'll actually have a finished nappy!
