ABC Flash Cards Diaper Cake (Review & Giveaway)

by Guest Contributor

When I was pregnant with my second daughter everyone kept asking what I needed for the new baby. I would pretend to think hard, but I already knew the answer: diapers. I had kept all of our baby clothes, but what I really needed were those items that you don’t hold on to: diapers, shampoo, diaper rash cream, etc.

So when my friends threw me a little shower, that was what I got – lots of diapers. My husband’s co-workers took it one step further and made me a diaper cake. It was such a fun and thoughtful way of presenting an ordinary gift, I knew that the next time I went to a baby shower I wanted to bring a diaper cake.

eDiaperCakes.com is a mom-owned, family-run company that makes and sells a variety of one-of-a-kind diaper cakes. All their diaper cakes are assembled by hand and include high quality products.

I received the ABC Flashcards Diaper Cake in the mail and was instantly impressed. Inside the box the diaper cake was individually wrapped and then surrounded by balloons to ensure the cake didn’t shift too much in shipping. A tag tied to the top informed me of all the goodies included with my diaper cake.

I was impressed with the products that were on the diaper cake. The diapers were Pampers and the hygiene products were all Johnson & Johnson. Until now my daughter had only taken the pacifier given to her at the hospital, but she actually has taken the one included on the diaper cake!

My favorite part of the cake, however, are the ABC flashcards. They are very sturdy and come with a little ring to hook them all on. Each flashcard has a different animal to represent the letter. Plus they were super cute! The cards were colorful and the illustrations whimsical. As I was looking through them, the crafter and party planner in me kept coming up with all the adorable baby showers that could be centered around these flashcards. There are so many colors to choose from, plus you could use all the various animals to decorate. So many ideas!

I have only been to two baby showers in my life…both of which I threw…so the party was my present. I can’t wait for another baby shower though because I want to give what I loved the most…a designer hospital gown from PUSH! Delivery Gowns.

All those pictures and no picture of the diaper cake itself?? How did it look when it came out of the box??

Aren’t compensated posts supposed to be rel=nofollow? Gosh it would be too bad if someone turned you in to Google for that.

I don’t give one certain type of gift. I like to get gifts that can’t be found just anywhere and that can’t be easily duplicated by another giver. Thanks.

Cloth AI2 diapers and Clothing for when they are 9m-1 year old. Usually everyone else focuses on the newborn and 3-6 month stage I love to give them something that is bigger so that they will be able to use this when the child has out grown all the other peoples clothing they will have grown into mine.

I enjoy giving the special gifts; books with a sweet sentiment inside or a homemade item. Generally that’s just my little “personal” addition to a basket of items on a registry or a gift card in case the new parents didn’t get something they wanted/ended up needing.

I love to give Wonder Bumpers for a baby shower. Many new moms are not aware of the dangers of the crib bumpers they are getting in their bedding sets. Wonder Bumpers are the safest thing to put on the rails of your crib. They zip up and protect your baby from SIDS. They are frequently on sale and are sold at many major stores.
