Zookies is run by a super sweet mama, Michele, right from her home in Pennsylvania. From Etsy:
"I am a stay-at-home mom of two little Zooks. I was an elementary school
teacher prior to having children and knew that I wanted to stay home
with them for a bit. What I didn't know was how much I would love being
at home, so I was searching for something that I could do in my comfy
pj's. We used cloth diapers, so the idea to make my own was developed."
She specializes in diaper covers (which are available in sizes x-small through large and in one-size, with either hook and loop or snap closures), reusable snack bags, bibs and burp cloths.
What I Received:
Michele sent me one of her one-size covers in "Monkey See" print with snaps. I love how colorful all of her prints are, and this is one that really stuck out to me (yes, I am a sucker for little monkey's lol). While looking at the cover, I noticed the shiny side of the PUL is on the inside. I thought this was really neat, mostly because all my PUL covers have the PUL sticking to Bug's bum if I tri-fold or use a Flip insert, but also because I know there are some baby's out there who have bad reactions to the PUL sticking to them. However, those of you who like to wipe out your PUL covers between uses, rest assured, Michele will sew them with the shiny side out if you make that request! Like I said, she's super sweet :)
How's The Size?
Well, I think the size is about perfect. I decided to take a few pictures though, because saying the size is perfect for me does absolutely nothing for you! lol In the following pictures I used a Flip cover and Thirsties Duo Wraps to compare sizes to the Zookies one-size cover.

What I Think:
I really like this cover. It's soft material, and I love having a snap closure cover with cross-over snaps. I also like that, even Bug does not have reactions to PUL, this cover has the soft fabric side of the PUL against his skin when I use my Flip inserts. We get a great fit, and did not experience any leaks. I have a feeling I'll be buying some covers from Zookies very soon =)
