Tots Bots and Bummis Have Broken Up

Since the weekend, rumors have been floating around the cloth diaper internet.  We’ve been eagerly awaiting the arrival of Tots Bots version 4 diapers for around four months now.  There have been delays and hold ups, but the general cloth diapering public has not been informed of the reason behind it.  All that we know is that we’re craving our diapers and any time Tots Bots answers a North American consumer online, we’re just told “soon.”

The only information that we’ve been given up until this point is that Bummis is the Tots Bots North American distributor and they would be getting the product in to distribute to cloth diaper stores around the continent.  At least, that was the plan.  Last week, Bummis and Tots Bots severed their arrangement.  Bummis would no longer be the distributor for North America.

So what does this mean for us?

Well, it means that there will be even more delays to getting the Tots Bots v4 into the United States and Canada.  Until we have a new North American distributor, Tots Bots will ship directly to retailers (much like Frugi diapers are shipped).  Theoretically, Tots Bots will be shipped next week.  However, I do say “theoretically” because orders were to be shipped to Bummis “the next week” a month ago.

At this point, I’m just hoping that they get here before I start potty training my daughter; I love the new Tots Bots v4 Frugi diapers and want to use the regular Tots Bots, too.  And I don’t want to take advantage of my UK pipeline; I’d rather stick with Cozy Bums, my local retailer.

Are you eagerly awaiting the new Tots Bots v4?

  1. I don’t have any Tots Bots but they are a favorite of one of my friends. I hope it all gets worked out soon!

  2. I’m a HUGE Tots Bots fan and hope they find a distributor soon. My favorite diapers is actually the Bamboozle, and I’d love to get some of the new colors.

  3. I won a TotsBotz V4 a month ago from TotsBots and it is our new favorite diaper. I look forward to buying more when they are available.

    It really makes me curious why they broke up, but it’s probably just a boring business issue, ha ha.
