The great Japanese diaper review : Part three

Hi again,

This is the third part of the diaper review series that I started in early March. You can read part one here, and part two here.

The third type of diaper that I will review in this series are called Moony (large 9-14kg, pants type). They are also (like Mamy Poko diapers) made by Unicharm, and were launched in Japan in 1983.

Unicharm`s business operations website states the following reason for having two different brands ...


Unicharm offers two brands of baby disposable diapers: Moony and MamyPoko, depending on customer needs. Moony diapers are committed to quality: they are leak-proof, fresh-smelling, and gentle on the skin. They have functions suited to each developmental stage. MamyPoko diapers use popular Disney characters to create enjoyment and facilitate communication between mother and baby at diaper change time.

I have seen Moony commercials on TV and they are very cute. They star a popular Japanese actress (小雪 = Koyuki) too...




I bought a pack of 44 large diapers from the drugstore for 1180yen (thats 27yen per diaper). They are more expensive on Amazon.co.jp, where they are 33yen per diaper. Moony L size diapers come in girl (女) and boy (男) versions. This is rare amongst Japanese diapers, and I was interested to note the difference!

The diapers have original Winnie the Pooh designs that I have photographed below. The front of the diaper is marked with まえ (front) above the Moony logo and the back is clearly marked with tape which you can use to wrap up the diaper for disposal.

Pros
- cute Winnie the Pooh character design
- there is a wetness indicator on the diapers
- popular brand 
- very soft materials
- they do have lots of layers of elastic protection around the legs. For active babies this is great!

Cons
- they can be a little more expensive than other types

Aiden is a big drinker, and usually goes through a lot of diapers each day. During our use of Moony diapers, we had only 1 or 2 leaks or overflows. For that reason, I might use these diapers again!
