Advantages: no leaks, spills, sturdy packaging, sturdy nappies.
Disadvantages: plain design.
We're closer to full time toilet using these days but recently I spotted 20 nappies in Morrisons for £1.50. Thinking they'd leak, be useless at night, fall apart when you put them on or all of the above I wasn't expecting much for my £1.50. We've almost exclusively used supermarket own brand nappies but hadn't ever bought the 'savers' or 'value' brands, deeming them too cheap for our needs so when the cheaper than cheap nappies from Morrisons did the trick I was surprised.
Now the packaging in which these nappies come in? It's not glamorous, I can tell you. A white packet with 'Morrisons Savers Nappies', a cartoon picture of teddies and the number of nappies on the packet is about as far as the budget stretches for the design of the packet but I have to say that the outer plastic wrap of the packaging is greater than the second cheapest supermarket own brand nappies. The nappies are also kept in the packaging pretty tight which makes the first few difficult to pull out from the packet but that's a universal trend with nappy packets ;).
So...on to the live action test. Like I said, I wasn't expecting much when I bought these nappies but I thought we'd give them a go as I was low on cash the day I had to re-stock on nappies. Well I was pleasantly surprised with these nappies! They are sturdy in the sense that don't easily fall apart at the closing tabs on either side, they fasten very snuggly and can be adjusted fairly easily. One comment I would make is that if you're planning on buying this variety of nappies: buy a size up. When I changed my son in the morning the nappy had held up very well; no leakages or spills.
Again with the design; it is pretty simple with a few line drawn teddies on the front of the nappy. No frills, no fireworks but they get the job done.
Price comparison time: These nappies are under £1.50 in a Morrisons near you with Tesco Value nappies (which are, in my view and experience, of a worse quality) are currently £1.97. For a pack of Huggies 'Step In Nappies' which come in a pack of 20 they are being sold on Tesco.com for £6.48! Now obviously that is a HUGE difference in price and as I find these nappies better than other supermarket value brands and no better than Huggies (which I have used) then it's not justifiable to spend £4.48 more on the same product with fancier packaging. Quite frankly I'm only motivated by quality and price but if you're one of these people who wants poop and pee catchers to look fancy (and who really cares as no one see's them anyway!) then you'll probably reach for the Huggies. Me, I'll stick to my Value nappies ;).
