Does anyone else cringe whenever this ad comes on? I do because I think the darn zip is going to catch some flesh, they pull it up so fast I think for sure some baby is going to get caught in it painfully.

Seriously, I can't watch this ad!  ffear.gif

I haven't seen the ad, but there's no way I'd buy a zip wondersuit.  Way too much potential for pain

I haven't seen the ad, but he concept doesn't appeal to me, that may be because I 'zipped' dd1 while putting her into her swim suit with not very nice results

i have one- and its great MR 2 cant undo the zip, on the other hand he will undo his regular wondersuit by 'ripping open' the snaps and then walks around the house with it open down to his navel!  obviously when take care when zipping- but have never had an accident

Do you have a link to it? I loved the one zipsuit I had for DS2 until he got too big for it, I wish they had been around when he was smaller, I would have bought more.

me too! I accidently started a passive aggressive fight on my FB about it.  I do not think it is a good idea for me to buy them as I have enough trouble not catching my own flesh in a zipper, the poor baby will have zipper scars all up it's poor tummy!.  However some of my friends thought it was awesome and others agreed and some of the comments got a bit heated.  I was too scared to go back to it lol! It was interesting the ones who had been there before were like "bad idea" the ones that were just mothers to young ones now were like "awesome"  perhaps if I didn't have my history with zips and the inability to not bust them on my skin, singlets, jean legs/tights/leggins  (I now know longer buy botos with zips) I may think differently.

My favorite all in ones were always the zipper ones.

Never ever caught their skin?

I love the ad - all those cute babies make me stupidly clucky laughing2.gif

I also love the suits for DS, they're much easier than fiddling with snaps. I find them pretty easy to hold away from his body so that his skin is nowhere near the zipper

There are 2 1/2cm of material on a size 00 one wink.gif

Saying that, I always have a jumpsuit or singlet underneath anyway.

No zip accidents to date!

I'd say they were actually done up quite slowly and then the footage was sped up for the ad.

My only issue with zip suits is you have to undo the whole thing to change a nappy - not great if it's cold or you are trying to keep the baby undisturbed.

I plan on getting one for each day of the week for my little one, I hate buttons and snaps  biggrin.gif .

And I love the ad too  wink.gif

Now that I've seen the ad, I too agree that the footage has been sped up.

I pretty much only use wondersuits in the cooler months anyway, so they always had a singlet or onesie underneath. I guess it wouldn't be hard to zip a bit of skin in the zipper, but it's a bit like keeping your fingers clear when you are folding a pram - it only takes one lot of sore fingers to remember not to do that ever again.

They are great for middle of the night changes when you can't be bothered doing up all the buttons on a suit... Love them

I got two things from that ad:

1- I want those suits for my baby
2- I want all those babies. How cute are they!

Love the ad and I love the zippered wondersuits too. original.gif
They are so snug and they are so much faster to put on than studded ones.
My 20 month old grandson wears them but he usually wears a singlet but having said that if you don't ever catch the singlet in the zip then you probably won't catch the skin either?
Some of those babies in the ad are so damn cute. wub.gif

You can unzip them from the bottom and the top so you only need to unzip to the waist. sad.gif
