LEGO bricks and diaper wipes

You know you've entered a different phase of life when you go from playing with LEGO bricks daily to receiving a LEGO-shaped diaper wipes box.

A family friend dropped off a gift of these two boxes, knowing about the LEGO book I'm currently working on. Her guess is they were from the 1980's. They have the layout of a traditional LEGO brick -- studs on top and tubes on the bottom. They're "stackables," and were made for a brand called "Chubbs."

As far as I can tell, this was a non-LEGO sanctioned product, despite the similar appearance. I haven't found any references that LEGO and Chubbs produced products together, although I will say a surprising number of people who choose to build with LEGO bricks have the nickname of Chubbs.

Anybody out there know if LEGO and the L&F corporation ever worked together?

I bought some of those diaper wipes for my daughter who was born in 11/1999 so this would have been in 2000 and 2001. I bought them at wal-mart.

My mom was a daycare provider and had LOTS of these. We used to build big walls of these wipe containers.She sold them years ago. I would love to get my hands on some again. It was the 1990s that my mom was buying these.

These came up on a conference call today. I had a wall worth of these when my daughters were in diapers in the 90s. I must have sold them all at garage sales.
