Last week GroVia revealed that they had joined forces with Wee Gallery, a company that specializes in whimsical art to visually stimulate even the youngest babies. This collaboration yeilded two wonderful new prints for GroVia, Wild Things and Up & Away!

They are both so great, I had a hard time choosing which one I liked best! I love the pops of color in Up & Away, but was really drawn to the adorable animals in the Wild Things print. My little guy loves animals and is getting to the age where he's able to point and name things, so this diaper is right up his alley.
He's actually a little Wild Thing himself! So curious and always testing the boundaries... always wants to be outside and exploring... he definintely keeps me on my toes! So how perfect is it that out of these two ADORABLE new GroVia prints, Wild Things is the one GroVia sent me to share a little sneak peek of? :D
Literally... on my toes. ;)
I have to say, this print looks even better more in person! I love the contrast of black and white. I don't have a diaper like this in my son's stash. It's definitely my new favorite print! I love the white with his skin tone and think it's very flattering. And the animals are just too cute!
My little guy enjoys the print as well! He loves birds and when he saw the parrot on the diaper he pointed to it and said, "Mom, bird!" However when I asked where the monkey was, he pointed to the lion, so that's something we're working on. ;)
As much as I love it's beautiful shade of white, that's one thing that initially worried me... Since he likes to be outside all the time, I worried about him getting it dirty and stained up. When I first put it on him (after I got some OTB shots, of course!) I let him play in it outside... and he plays hard. By the time he was through, it was pretty dirty. It had rained earlier and he really enjoys playing in any bit of dirt or mud he can find!
Since I had just done diaper laundry, I decided to try handwashing it in the sink and see how well it would wash up. With only a minute of gentle handwashing with just a little bit of soap, it came completely clean and looked brand new! In fact, the photo below was taken after I had handwashed it!
