Favorite Alva Prints for Boys

Getting ready to do an order - I want some cute prints. So what are your favorites for boys (not Minky - there are tons of cute prints but I don't like the fit!)

Really curious if there are any that look bad on the site but are really cute in person. Specifically wondering about the wide-stripe ones (in n-series), they look really ugly, but I'm strangely drawn to them!

N06 spiderman print is a given... looks great on ds!
As for prints I was unsure of at first but now totally love on ds..... N01 bumble bee stripes and Y08 scroll pattern on black!
I just ordered N23 christmas ornaments on green and hope I like it, too but we'll see.
FYI: cartoon diapers are very similar in size and have great prints, too.... Batman, Superman, Spiderman, Cat in the Hat, The Lorax, Green Eggs & Ham, Thomas the Train, and Sesame Street are just some of the boyish prints they have.

Re: Favorite Alva Prints for Boys

thanks... I already had the spiderman...my 7yo ds is going to love that one! I love Y08 - already chose that one to, there was a post here with an action shot...I never would have picked it if I hadn't seen that picture.

I will check out the bumble-bee... I decided to add the orange stripe (N2) to my order too, it looks kind of hideous but it may be so ugly it's cute! And the black and white stripe (n5) is calling my name too... how many diapers is too many?

Can you buy cartoon diapers outside of co-ops?

I had both of those striped ones and wasn't a fan.... especially of the light brown and orange bc it just looked awful on my fair-skinned orange-haired ds but it would prob look great on a darker haired lo.
You can buy the cartoon diapers at retail on ebay but they're pricey, imo at about $11each.

I've always wanted a dark-haired, brown-eyed baby but mine all come out with blue eyes and blond hair... orange is my favorite color though, so maybe I'll like it anyway

The orange stripe was what made me get that one.... wish the brown was more choc brown instead of that lighter muddy brown. I hope it works well for you. I'd LOVE to see an action pic of a boy wearing N23 green with yellow, blue and red circles! That's the one that's next on my wishlist.

I ordered that one too... I won't get it until mid-Nov, but I'll try to remember to post some action shots!
