So why are the Imagine products so much less expensive?

I've never used them. But I have some bamboo prefolds and flats OTW.

I'm just curious WHY all of the Imagine line is so affordable?

I think bc they get them directly from the factory so no middle man to pay.
I was worried about the quality too considering the price & so far I have been very happy!

Yeah, no middle man, I think.

Amazing product though, especially for the price, and well worth a try.

That makes sense. I am thankful for affordable and quality products! I can't wait to get my prefolds and flats.

Re: So why are the Imagine products so much less expensive?

I've ordered several AIO's of theirs (they're actually AI2's, since the insert snaps in but they call them AIO's.. whatever) Anyway I haven't had a chance to use them yet as my baby is due in April and I'm just getting an early start on stalking up, but the ones I've received seem to be very good construction and what not. And ~$10 for a OS AIO?? Yes please!! That is $7 less than BG 4.0's and I prefer snapping in an insert over stuffing them so I am excited about these!! ...Now if they only had more colors and prints to choose from, I would consider having my stash made up primarily of these!!

How is the velcro on these ? They really seem as though they would be more daddy friendly for us and well of course not to hard on the wallet !!

An ai2 has a reusable shell and interchanging inserts. Can the shell be reused?

No the shell can not be reused. It is an AIO but the inner is snap in not attached.

The Velcro holds up pretty well, it does start curling a little after a lot of dryer time, but still sticks well.
