So I did it, I broke down & splurged some on these awesome Blueberry Trainers. I always said that I would NEVER pay that much for a pair of trainers, but I did. :-/ Well, here's what happened.....I had entered a giveaway & won the yellow giraffe pair. I was so excited when I found out I won! I have been wanting to try them for some time but couldn't justify the purchase. When we received it, I was instantly smitten & could definitely see why they cost so much ($15.95/pair). They are extremly well made & are lined with this yummy velour that is so soft. I wish I had gutchies this soft! I also love the fact that sandwiched in between the print & velour is a layer of PUL & a layer of absorbant material. Now while they don't contain a full pee, they do keep the floor dry if he starts to pee some on his way to the potty. They come in a variety of prints & three sizes to choose from : small (22-30 lbs), medium (25-35 lbs) & large (32-42 lbs). I bought all larges since Barker now weighs 35lbs. I have washed them over a dozen times & they still look new & are as soft as ever on the inside. My only complaint is that since they do have an absorbant layer, they tend to be a bit bulkier under clothes than our Gerber Trainers. However, I can deal with this since they do absorb more than our other trainers & have a waterproof outer. Overall, we love our Blueberry Trainers!!!
Here's the inside of the trainer.
Not sure if you can see it or not, but I tried to take a close-up pic to show the velour & stitch marks for the absorbant layer.
I love the nice wide elastic bands. They fit him nice & don't leave any red marks.
