Advantages Easy to use, no bags lying around
Disadvantages expensive refills
We bought the Tommy Tippee Nappy Wrapper in preperation for the birth of our son.The Tommy Tippee nappy wrapper has been developed in association with Sangenic, and is designed for use in a baby's bedroom to get hygenically dispose of nappies.
WHAT IS IT?The Nappy Wrapper is a plastic bin with a lift-up lid. Under the lid is a hole in which you insert nappies.
The idea is, when you have a used nappy, you put it into the top of the bin, which puts it into a carrier bag. You then twist the top which twists the carrier bag, and locks away smells.You can then keep 'adding' nappies until the bin is full, at which point you use the inbuilt cutter to remove the 'sausage' of nappies which can then be put straight into the wheelie bin, and a new sausage started.
To use the nappy wrapper, you need a cartridge which contains the 'carrier bag' - basically a long tube which feeds out from the cartridge. One comes free with the wrapper, and you can then buy extras either individually or in packs of 4.PRICES
The nappy wrapper seems to permanently be on offer - it is usually priced at £29.99, but can usually be found in Mothercare for £14.99.The cartridges are the pricy part: if bought at Mothercare, £4.49 for stage one (newborn - 4 months) and £5.49 for stage 2 (4 months +)
The difference in stages in the catridges is to deal with the change in smells etc that occur when a baby is started to be weaned.The nappy wrapper is available in the usual places - Mothercare, Toys R us, baby shops and even some supermarkets, and the cartridges can be found in the baby items aisle in most supermarkets as well as mothercare etc.
USEABILITYThe wrapper is simple enough to put together and use, though you do have to ensure you thread the plastic bag through the right way!
The main issue we have had with it is that there are plastic tabs underneath that guide the bag when it is twisting, and these over time have come off, which means that the bag can untwist, but when at a recent BabyShow we were told that if we contacted customer services they would send us some replacements.PERSONAL THOUGHTS
It is meant to keep odours in, but if it is left a while, smells do start to escape.A handy item which I would recommend!
