A frustration preventer? For sure.
Aesthetically appealing? Yes.
The OXO Tot PerfectPull Wipes Dispenser is one of those items that we purchased out of frustration. We had been using what I would consider a traditional plastic wipes dispenser (Huggies brand), and it was so aggravating to reach for a wipe with one hand while holding the baby with the other just to have it tear or three or four wipes (or sometimes the whole box) come with it. It made diaper changes take much longer than needed (especially with a baby boy, if you know what I mean…pee on the wall, pee in my hair, pee pee everywhere). I finally decided to look up a better option.
This wipes dispenser has a weight (with a hole in it to grab wipes) that sits on top of the wipes to ensure only one wipe comes out at a time. I can honestly say that I don’t think I’ve ever had more than one come out. Additionally, the weight in the box coupled with a heavier box overall prevents the whole dispenser from moving around. A simple solution that’s worth every bit of the $20 we paid for it.
I think it’s also worth mentioning that this dispenser is super easy to refill, and it comes in multiple color options to suit varying preferences.
We like a lot of OXO’s products for their simple, unique function and minimalist design, and this one is at the top of that list.
