WWYD: Brand new snappis broke

Hey mamas, just wondering what to do about my snappi situation, lol! I just bought two brand new in packages. The first one broke on the first try, the second broke the next day after a few times being used. Both broke on the little handle part that you pull to hook the teeth. I did stretch them before first uses.

I have an older style snappi that I've used a lot for 3 years! In 3 years I only had one break, and unfortunately lost the rest.

Have the newer style snappis broken easily for anyone else?

I paid $2.50 each plus $2.50 shipping ($7 total). Should I try to return them, or contact the store I got them from? Or should I just forget about snappis and take a $7 loss? What would you do?

Really?! I've never experienced that. How awful.
Yes, I'd contact the seller for replacement (maybe have pics just in case, as she may or may not want you to bother returning them.) She should be able to be reimbursed for the faulty Snappis from her wholesaler.

I'd want a refund......I bought old style on ebay 6 for 8$ inc. shipping and have had no problems at all.......and I didn't even know you were supposed to stretch them first till months after!!!!!

Thanks for the replies. I'm wondering if I want to keep using snappis at all at this point, but never thought to keep using them broken. I'll try that, too, but hope that the store I got them from will help me out and replace them. Thanks ladies!

Re: WWYD: Brand new snappis broke

OMG I just had that happen to me the other day! It snapped me so hard that I had a huge welt on my palm. It was the bottom one and I still use it, but I was really bummed. I reach for the older style one because I'm scared of the new ones now

I am going to contact the company and see what they say. I bought mine off Ebay.

I've had this happen with both my toddler snappis, but my regular ones have been ok (they are the new style though). I still use them, but I'd prefer if they were whole!
