For the Monster has been around for a while. Read our interview with Gina below and learn all about this great store.
Tell us a little about yourself and your family, if you have little ones in cloth, your location, etc.- For the Monster started in Southeast Kansas in July of 2004. In 2009 we moved to Northwestern Arkansas and stayed online only until the end of October 2010 when we opened an actual retail store. We now have a Retail location and online boutique. Eric and I have been married for 10+ years now and have two little monsters of our own. Ryan age 7 and Andrew age 2.

How'd you get started cloth diapering and what made you decide to open your own business? In 2003 I had our first child, and a friend of mine had used cloth diapers on her child. She helped me pick out my first covers and prefolds, and then the love or addiction of cloth diapers grew from there. There were no stores local that carried cloth diapers.
What are your business goals for the future? For the Monster has grown so much in the last 6+ years I would like to see it keep growing. I would like to see For the Monster become more known to our local parents as well as on line.
What do you like best about being in the cloth diaper industry? I like being in the cloth diaper industry because of the people. The customers, the manufacturers! It is nice to talk with parents that have the same parenting style that I do. I like this industry because if there is a family that needs help, we band together and help.
What are your favorite Knickernappies products and why? It's no secret that I am a pocket diaper lovin' mama, but I have to say I like the One Size Diapers! With the One Size Diaper you get a better cost savings!
Best piece of advice to someone interested in cloth diapering or new to cloth? Do not sink your money into one brand. I think a new person to cloth should try out all brands. Purchase AT LEAST two of every kind you want to try. I know at For the Monster we will build packages so you can get what you want with a little saving too!
