About this project
Yankers are stylish, modern, all-in-one outfits designed with a unique and simple pull down panel in the back. This panel allows easy access to your baby's diaper without having to deal with any snaps or fasteners. So quick and easy!
Yankers is made for smart moms and dads. It is a new and different way of changing your baby and best given as a baby shower gift.
Feedback from parents are overwhelmingly positive:
are the best thing since sliced bread! They are so soft and comfy and
so very practical. Easy to put on, easy to wear, and easy to check the
diaper - the best part is that our son looks adorable in all the colors.
People always comment on the unique design wherever we go and we just
love them. The Retro Union Suit is a particular favorite, resembling a
mini Star Trek outfit. Go right now and get a dozen, you won't be
At a first glance the Yankers jumpsuit I received as a gift looked like it could be hard to put on a squirming baby. Nothing could be farther from the truth! It was super easy, and made diaper changes a breeze, too. I ended up getting several more...they come in a ton of adorable styles and colors. I love Yanker!
hello we love yankers we used them with our older son 2 diferent sizes and now our younger son is reusing them they are awesome.
My patternmaker Jamie, started altering this pattern before she had children. 6 months ago she gave birth to a baby girl and the last time I met with her she said "I FINALLY GET THESE. Yankers are amazing." It made me feel stellar coming from someone who makes a zillion patterns for folks.
And, the other day the director of some day care centers in the Netherlands approached me about the possibility of using Yankers in their facilities.
Make your life easier and add Yankers to your babies wardrobe. Most folks who try Yankers end up coming back for more.
The Tarzen, The Cooper and The Elizabeth are designs from 2009. The designs for 2012 are The Carmen, The Larry and The Yogi. All of the designs are offered as rewards in this kickstarter but the newer ones will not be available until Fall of 2012. These designs are available in sizes 0-3 mo, 3-6 mo, 6-12 mo, 12-18 mo, 18-24 mo, & 2 yr.
To better understand how Yankers works check out my short 40 second video here:
I invented Yankers after my son was born and never took the product much further than selling them on my website but customers, friends and colleagues have been telling me I'm crazy not to take this time-saving and innovative product to the next level.
Parents continually comment that they can't believe such a product does not already exist in the marketplace. I am raising funds to take this unique and original product out of my basement where I am currently hand-dying them and moving them into a local cut and sew factory. These funds will help me launch my new designs that require more than one colorway and therefore cannot be dyed. It will also help me do some marketing.

How does Yankers work?
The current styles will ship in August 2012 and the fall line will ship a month later in September 2012.
Will the Fall 2012 line be available for sale after Kickstarter is over?
Yes, but not immediately and not at this price!
