It sucks the embroidery idea was copied
Unfortunately it happens all the time tho so I guess im not really surprised... all those elmos, nemo, blues clues, etc applique diapers/soakers are ripping off the original creators as well, it sucks all around IMO
I'm bet that based on the sheer amount of soakers they are knit on a machine, tho i think slave labor could be a stretch. But I'm ok with a machine knit soaker for the cost..... something I wont mind the baby getting dirty and messy (unlike my MM or other more expensive soakers).
As for the price
.... they arent the first people to put cheaper soakers out there... there are tons on ebay that go for much less. As consumers its not our job to make sure WAHMs set a fair price no matter if they are hand knitting, machine knitting, or sewing. There will always be people who undercharge, and always people who buy them for a multitude of reasons. IMO its not fair to say its ok for a US wahm to undercharge and then say its not ok for someone else to do it just because they may have different reasons for doing it.
ETA : if anyone has any recommandations for a good quality, durable, arrodable (but fair
) soaker made by a US wahm PLEASE post it. That way people know there is a choice and that they dont have to support someone who may or may not be questionable.... if that makes sense, lol. I think a lot of the reason why she gets so much attention is because she provides something that is hard to find... instock. For moms who NEED soakers thats a big deal and sometimes leaves them without a choice. yeah i rambled, i should go to bed, lol.
