Will the babyville pliers work with these snaps? There are just not enough snap .. sockets? in a pack.. I have plenty of the ones that go on the wings and 17 left of the belly snaps. Can I use the belly ones for the wings and the others on the wings? Anyone ever done that?
If these pliers will work with the snaps, I'm just going to place an order for some, because 7.99 for a pack of snaps is a bit pricey after a while!

I've been wondering the same thing because Babyville snaps don't have very many colors and are expensive! I read that they are compatible, but I haven't gotten to try it out yet. I hope someone else can be more help!

Hi mama's, I have a babyville pliers and use it with kamsnaps to convert my Ds dipe and it works really well. I used both babyville snaps and kamsnap together and they both fit well with each other too. Hope that helps.

We should do a kam snap co-op.

We should do a kam snap co-op.
I'd love to, but I thought I read you need 1000+ posts to participate in a co-op. I might be wrong, though.

To be a Co-op particiapnt you need to have a minimum of 50 posts AND 10 postive feedback and you have to be approved by a group leader. To host a Co-op you need 2000 posts though... just checked.
You might be able to find a co-op group on facebook. I know that the Canadian Co-op facebook group is doing a kamsnaps co-op. If sales reach $200 you get 10% off, at $500 you get 15% off and at $1000 you get 20% off. We're like $100 away from $1000 in sales (last time I looked). There might be a US group on facebook though, at least until you have enough feedback to join one on here.

I have a KAM and babyville snaps so thanks for this post. Do you use the snaps only for diapers? Can you use them for anything else?
03-12-2012, 08:40 PM
I've used them on clothing and other things

I just got some babyville snaps and they worked well w/ my KAM pliers. I used a 40 or 50% off coupon and the prices at JA's were about the same as KAM. I don't use them to make diapers, so I only need a few of each color and I like the BV for that.
KAM offers lots of multicolored snaps, but I would have needed 2 colorways (?) to get the colors I needed, and w/ shipping, it was more than BV w/ coupon.
I used BV snaps to make ergo teething pads for a friend (well, her baby).

Are the babyville snaps holding up in the pliers better than before? I bought one package and I broke about half of them in the pliers. What a waste!! And they were so darn cute!!
I ordered some KAM snaps and didn't break a single one.

If you only need a few of multiple colors, you can order trial packs from Serena at Assunta Store:
The babyville pliers are an old model of KAM snap pliers, so yes they work fine with KAM snaps.
