Dapper Snappers Is Closing It’s Doors (Final Blog)

Monday, May 1, 2017 @ 08:05 AM
posted by mrscaz

Once upon a time, there was a new mom that saw a need for her skinny little boy and decided to solve it. That need grew into a business and the product became Dapper Snappers. The year was 2007 and we had no idea that such a simple product would turn into an international must-have item for moms.

Recently, a new opportunity has presented itself and we believe is in the best interest of our family to take it. Unfortunately, doing so means we will not be able to continue making Dapper Snappers.

The purpose of this letter is to inform you, officially, of our decision to close the Dapper Snapper doors on 6/30/2017. We’ve tried very hard over the past couple years to find the right person(s) to purchase the product line and equipment, but alas no viable candidates were found.

We do have inventory on the shelves (and being sold online), and more material still being made into product, but the supply is limited.

We have enjoyed working with you and your team very much as both customers and fellow entrepreneurs.

We thank you for being our customers and supporters over the past 10 years. ♥

Dapper Snapper’s Amazon Reviews (Take a look)

Take a moment to read some of our customer reviews from our Amazon customers…

5 out of 5 stars
“Genius solution to everyday problem”
By: Cowgirl
Verified Purchase

“Genius product. I have slim toddlers with long legs which makes it difficult to buy pants. If they fit in the length they usually fall right off. Out comes our dapper snapper and we’re in business. Such a simple design for an easy fix to everyday mom problems. I have several sets that my toddlers share. I recommend removing the belt before washing pants as the first belt I bought really took a beating with all the washing and drying. I will say it is still in my lineup it’s just a big saggy compared to the ones I haven’t washed. I would recommend this to other moms. Just make sure you buy pants with belt loops to use these!! It’s shocking how many kids pants don’t have belt loops!”

“Dapper Snappers are wonderful!”
By: momof7
Verified Purchase

“I have been looking for a belt for my two year-old, and having no success. I found these on Amazon and am very pleased with them. At first I thought they were a little pricey, but since I can’t find a small enough belt, and they work so well, I have decided they are definitely worth the money. They work for my three younger kids, ages 6, 2 and 1. My kids tend to be skinny with no rear end, and I use onesies to hold their diapers on! Dapper Snappers have solved that issue for me, holding up their pants very well. There is only one pair of pants with oddly spaced belt loops that they have not worked on so far.”

“Big Boy jeans now stay up!”
By: Marjorie Wirth
Verified Purchase

“Grandson is a slim build with no real butt bump so this was quite a handy little item. With the “belt” only in the back loops it will not hinder the potty training process either. Great idea.”

5 out of 5 stars
“Wish I had invented these!”
By: mbay2002
Verified Purchase

“Great! I don’t remember how I found these, it may have been searching through amazon for a “toddler belt”. Well these are even better… they snug up the pants from behind, so for potty training your toddler doesn’t have to deal with unbuckling a belt. My son had several pairs of droopy pants that would sometimes fall to his knees when he was playing. The elastic on the pants my have stretched a bit, but the pants were still in good shape. These snaps solved the problem — kept the pants on him tightly, yet made diaper changes and potty training a breeze. This is one of those items that is simple, yet sheer genius, I wish I would have thought of it!!! And I can clearly see how they would work from probably about 18 months up to 4 years.”
