Where to buy
Oh Snaps! is available at selected brick and mortar stores, Namaste Inc website, and online retailers.

I like that they are pink, translucent, and come in a variety of sizes. They are definitely more attractive (and fancier) than the plastic pouches I used to keep my stuff in. As much as I like the snaps, because they are easy to open and close, I do think a zipper version would be nice too. But then again, they wouldn't be called Oh Snaps!.

These mesh pouches are pretty well made. I kept yanking at the snaps to open them, and I was not gentle at all. I wanted to see how much force they can take and if they would come apart. So far, they are still intact. 

These pouches truly have multi-uses. For now, I use mine in very different ways. The biggest pouch holds accessories that don't fit my jewelry box: hair pins, necklaces, bracelets, and even my halloween wig is encased in it. It can fit so much stuff. I keep the mid-sized pouch in the diaper bag full of emergency items. And finally, I keep magnetic numbers in the smallest pouch. It helps keep my teaching box organized. As these pouches are not structured, they expand to allow you to put a lot of stuff in. I can see many more uses for the Oh Snaps!, but organization is definitely it's main function for me.

The pouches are pricey for mesh bags. However, they are well made and very functional. Also, 10% of the sale of Oh Snaps!! goes to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and that's definitely a plus.

We have not had any safety issues with this product.
