For Me to Poop On!
My thanks to Triumph the Insult Comic Dog for the title.
Why do diapers have characters on them?
Firstly, do the good people at Sesame Street and Disney know what is done in a diaper?
Why do they want Elmo and Mickey defaced this way?
Secondly, what is the marketing ploy?
Do they honestly think a three month old is going to intimate their character preference to their primary diaper purchaser?
Thirdly, what is the purpose?
At first I thought it was to help me find the front of the diaper. But no, there's a character on the back too.
Give a sleep deprived parent a break here.
Does it actually work? Do you purchase diapers based on your favorite cuddly critter?
(Just to save you the trouble of emailing - I do know there are many, often eco-friendly, character free diapers on the market.)
Doesn't it just raise the cost of diapers?
