Review: Dapper Snappers Toddler Belt

Dapper Snappers are ideal for infants and toddlers from ages 9mos to 5 or 6 yrs old who are built like my children . . . a little on the skinny side with no butt. The boys in our family are particularly prone to this, therefore their pants are always too short by the time they grow into the waist. I think they inherited this from their Dad. I wonder if they make Dapper Snappers for men?

What I thought about Dapper Snappers as a parent:

1) It is unfortunate that not all brands of children's clothing offer pants with adjustable waists and the ones that do often do not offer them for sizes smaller than 24mos or 2T. Dapper Snappers are a simple solution to this common problem. This is a much preferred alternative to folding down the elastic waste on a pair of pants.

2) My 2.5yr old son is at the age when he is starting to potty training. I like that Dapper Snappers allow you to hold up your child's bottoms without hindering their independence when it comes to removing their pants like many other toddler belts do.

3) I like that there is not a strangulation hazard with Dapper Snappers.

4) I do think that with thick stiff denim bottoms, the fabric can get a little bulky. Even though I thought it may cause discomfort for my son, it actually did not seem to bother him at all. For naps, I would take his pants off altogether if we are using one of these belts.

5) The elastics are thick and strong. I have no worries about Dapper Snappers losing its elasticity or fraying.


Overall, I am extremely pleased with this product. If you have both a boy and a girl like me, I suggest buying gender-neutral colors so that they can be worn by both. You can find Dapper Snappers online at ToddlerTechUSA.com or at these local Dapper Snappers retailers.

To mark their one year anniversary, Dapper Snappers will be offering a Buy 2 Get 1 Free promotion starting on June 28th through July 4th. Also 20% of the sales from that week will go to the charitable organization Reece's Rainbow.
