Boingo is a fun way to fasten a cloth diaper without using old fashioned pins! Just hook on one side of the diaper, pull, grip and you're done. Boingo fasteners grip on the sides of the diaper which prevents uncomfortable compression on baby's tummy and delicate areas like other cloth diaper fasteners on the market today. Boingo stays put and does not fall off during play.
Boingo comes in a pack of two allowing you to use only one Boingo for babies under 14 lbs. Boingo also comes in 7 cool and funky colors, including glow in the dark and glitter! So ditch the pins, because Boingo is in!
How To Use:
1. Hold the Boingo with two hands, gripping in the center away from the claws.
2. Pinch the fabric of the diaper and hook one end of the boingo into the diaper, it is helpful to insert the teeth as you would a diaper pin.
3. Gently stretch and pull your boingo to the opposite side and fasten again. Boingos do NOT need to be fastened tightly to grip the diaper properly. You want to have some give and stretch in the Boingo, so that it will be comfortable for baby. A good rule of thumb is that you want to be able to comfortably slip one finger under the Boingo when fastened, you should be able to pull on the Boingo and have it stay tightly gripped.
You may pull on the center of the Boingo to make sure it is attached firmly.
4. Cover with your favorite diaper cover!
WARNINGS: Boingos should only be fastened by a responsible adult. Carefully check your Boingo prior to use for wear, or damage. Discontinue use and recycle your Boingo if it becomes worn, torn, or damaged. Continued use of a damaged fastener could lead to product failure, thus posing a potential choking hazard if the plastic piece is dislodged, or becomes separated. Do not over stretch your Boingos. Over stretching, or forcefully stretching will damage your Boingo. Do not pull your Boingo by any part of the star, or any other design, it will cause damage. Do not cut or alter your Boingo in any way, doing so could result in failure of your Boingo and will void your warranty. Do not use Boingo on any child who could remove it, or their diaper/diaper cover. Do not allow your child to play with Boingos, they are not toys. Boingos should be kept out of childs reach when not in use. Misuse can cause damage.

These are actually the only fasteners we've ever used, so I can't compare them... I really like how easy they are to use, and they definitely look really cute - when other family members change diapers, they always comment on them. We started with only one pair, and after 2 and a half months, some of the teeth were coming off - they were still useable, but not super great. Honestly, I consider that a pretty long lifespan, considering how many diaper changes our newborn was demanding! Anyway, now we got two more pairs, and that's worked out well for us.

after struggling with snappis for the last 6 months, i was SO EXCITED to get these in the mail! it is so nice to be able to put one on each side without having to stretch your hand across baby, squeezing at the sides. not to mention they dont cut into stomach like snappis. no sharper than snappis at the teeth area, if put on correctly, not an issue. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE the sparkley ones!!!! need to order more i know i will lose one eventually and cry alot.
