I’ve never been your typical female, I don’t do shoes! I hate shoe shopping and would much rather walk the earth in bare feet than cram them into high heels and pinched toes – something my Mum really doesn’t understand as she adores shoes. My vice is, and always has been, BAGS!!!! I have bags of bags, boxes of bags and drawers of bags, I just love them.
I was offered the opportunity to review the fun, funky and functional changing bag JuJuBe All from Jellybean.co.uk. How could I turn down a chance like that? Up until now I have “made do” with a very boring plain black changing bag, so I got overly excited when I received this bag – the JuJuBe All Perky Perrenials design. My request was for a bag which would be big enough to carry spares, nappies, wipes etc for two children and be bright in colour as my pushchair is plain black. They DID NOT FAIL! The JuJuBe All has been voted Best Changing Bag by Mother & Baby Magazine and is amazing, I absolutely love it and as you can see from the title of this post – so do others! Everywhere that I have gone I have been asked, “ooh where did you get that bag”, a couple have even commented that they had seen it online and were currently trying to persuade their husbands to buy them one.
The bag’s exterior fabric is made from waterproof Teflon so spills and rain just roll right off. There are pockets galore to store all the essentials and what I particularly like is the mesh pockets all around the inside of the main area of the bag. In here I am able to separate Little Bean’s nappies from Beanie Boys, then there are pockets left for bags, nappy creams, my Mamascarf, dummies, Little Bean’s snuggle blanket, my camera and even a spare pocket which I haven’t used yet!
On either end of the outside of the bag are insulated pockets for storing bottles/drinks. On the front of the bag (under the front flap) is a pocket which has a removable “wet sack” for dirty clothes, as well as a further pocket where I keep a change of clothes for both children. Then on the front flap is a further pocket which I use as my “handbag” it has space for my purse, a sunglasses pocket, a zipped pocket which I use as a coin purse and somewhere to keep my lippy! And last but not least is a keychain to make it easier to find the car keys!!
The shoulder strap is wide and very well padded to it’s comfortable to carry. The strap can be lengthened and shortened very easily and I’m pleased to say it can be lengthened enough to fit across the handles of my double buggy. You can purchase buggy clips separately to securely attach the bag to your buggy.
Other little design features which I love are the rhinestones on the zippers and on the inside of the front flap are two clear pockets where you can show off pictures of your little ones.
For more information check out Jellybean online, they have designs to suit everyone and I can’t recommend them enough. The RRP for the JuJuBe All is £89 which I think is a good price for something which will last for a very long time and see you through thick and thin whilst keeping you looking stylish at the same time!
Oops – I forgot to mention the changing mat!! On the rear of the bag is a further pocket which houses a matching changing mat which is really padded and comfortable for little ones bottom! It has the Perky Perrenials design on one side and the matching silver lining on the other – what more do you need?
