New bumGenius Color! Armadillo

Oh, Jenn Labit, you’re whipping your bumGenius fans into a frenzy!  Over the last couple of months, it’s been a near continuous stream of new bumGenius selections.  And yesterday, you did it again with a new bumGenius color.  Meet the bumGenius Armadillo.

New bumGenius Color - Armadillo (Cloth Diaper Addicts)

Once again, Cotton Babies has released a diaper in colors from Picadilly Circus and Top Hat.  The grey used here is the same as the limited edition Artist Series Top Hat and serves to replace some of the discontinued colors from last year.  And instead of setting trends, Cotton Babies has followed trends by releasing another grey diaper.

Armadillo is set to ship to stores in May.  Cozy Bums, my cloth diaper “dealer,” has already placed her pre-order.

My Thoughts on the New bumGenius Color

It’s a nice grey.  It’s a truly gender neutral color.  But I have to admit, I hate the name armadillo.  I’m from Florida.  To me, armadillos are those stinking things that are always on the side of the road.  I’ve never actually seen a live one, but I saw a picture of a live one and was shocked at how ugly they are.  Yuck.  As much as I don’t wish anything ill, I have to admit that the ones that are dead and stinking on the side of the road are about as attractive as the live ones.  I can think of other words for grey that would be much, much more attractive mental picture for me.  And I can manage that even with the double letter trend that seems to be in all of their solids.

In a nutshell?  Color is a win.  Name is a fail.

What do you think of the new bumGenius color?  Will you be adding the Armadillo to your stash?

    I wont be, no. I love grey and all, but I was really hoping the new BG would be a fun boys print after the hubub for girls with Audrey. It is nice though.

    I love this colour, and might consider getting an Elemental in it!

  3. Rachel N says:

    I am glad bumgenius is offering a grey diaper but it’s really not a surprise with all the grey releases lately

  4. I’d definitely have to see it in person, but I love grey! I’d try it!

  5. Love the color! I hope they can keep it instock long enough to order it!
