The Bag was
bigger than I was expecting. I loved the zebra print and the wipe clean
material. The bag didn’t look like a changing bag at all and was a lovely bag
that I could see myself using when out and about with and without my daughter. The
item arrived in a much larger package than I was expecting, but the bag did end
up being bigger than expected also. The bag was inside a parcel bag and wrapped
in lovely pink tissue paper which was a great touch! I think this is a very
fashionable and practical changing bag and handbag. As it’s described as a
changing bag I was expecting it to have that obvious changing bag look about
it, but it doesn’t at all. You could easily pull this off as a regular handbag
which I love! This product definitely
fulfilled my expectations and more. I love the integrated bottle bags. It’s a
shame my daughter doesn’t have bottles any longer because I can really
appreciate how handy they would be. However, I did use them to store her water
bottle and it kept it nice and cool all day. Initially I didn’t see the need
for the zip bag for wet gear as I never had one with my previous changing bag
however I have found it very useful to store dirty bibs etc. to save them
making a mess on the rest of the bag. The external zip pocket is also a great
feature as I could keep my phone and keys safe and not have to rummage through
the bag to find them. The bag has a lovely look about it and can easily be
carried using the shoulder strap. It also has a strap on either side to attach
to a buggy so is very easy to transport whether you have the buggy or not. I
think the product is amazing quality. The wipe clean material is ideal with a
toddler running around. We have had many fruit stains and mud etc. on it and
all have wiped off very easily. The straps are very strong and the bag can
store a lot inside. The changing mat is very padded and very comfortable for my
daughter. It is twice as thick as my previous changing mat and seems much more
durable. I think this bag is made to last, it has been used every day since
receiving it; it has been thrown in car, dropped on the floor when chasing a
very fast toddler, has endured rain and sun and there isn’t one mark on it. I
definitely feel this would last for the duration of the nappy changing days
with more than 1 baby. I wouldn’t usually spend this much on a changing bag but
having used it for a couple weeks I do feel it is worth the money. It seems
very long lasting and is equipped with everything you would want on a changing
bag and more. The only thing I would improve about this product is the colour
of the inside material and changing mat. The main colour theme on the bag is
red but for some reason the fabric inside is bright pink which definitely
clashes with the exterior of the bag. The changing mat is also this pink and
white. I think had the interior been red and the changing made in a print
matching the outside it would have been a lot more pleasing on the eye. This
obviously didn’t affect the bags use in anyway but did bug me a little. I would purchase this bag and recommend
without hesitation. Overall I absolutely
love the bag. I originally had been using a bag that match my pram and was
quite happy with it. After using this bag I would never go back to using my previous
bag again. This bag is much more spacious and practical. It has so many
different compartments which makes storing this much easier. I have used this
bag when out with my daughter and also as a normal handbag and it definitely
didn’t look like I have taking a changing bag on my shopping trip. Samantha Howlett – Pippa 18 Months

A stylish and
good quality bag with plenty of pockets and compartments. Simply packaged but
protective enough for the product to stay undamaged. The description was good,
emphasising the fact that the bag is stylish and not too bulky. It detailed all
of the different pockets but could have explained some of the internal clips
better which are a good feature. I felt that this bag was easy to use and organise
everything that is needed when out with a baby or toddler. It is a good quality
bag and didn’t have any problems while using it and I feel that you would be
able to use the bag for a long time and it would still look in very good
condition. I feel that the bag is quite expensive for a changing bag but it is
good quality and it offers a lot of features so is reasonable value for money.
Personally I would like to see added a smaller changing mat, maybe in a
separate pocket. I would purchase this Tote bag and would certainly
recommend. Quite expensive and
changing mat a little big so not given full marks. Apart from that a really
good product with lots of features to make life easier while still looking
good. The bottle holders can be removed which is great when you are out with a
toddler that doesn’t need a bottle so gives more space in the bag for other
things. The changing mat was lovely and really padded but does take up a bit of
room in the bag. I loved the straps to hang the bag from a pram; these were
really useful and helped keep the bag a bit safer as well, as secured onto the
pram. The bag looked good and wasn’t too big and bulky. The key fob is a great
idea to keep keys safe and easy to find when routing around with one hand in
the bag while trying to look after a child at the same time. Rachel O’Hara –

The Pink Lining Notting Hill Tote 3.9/5

I think the
product looks quite striking and well made, using good quality materials with
strong leather handles. The pink lining is really nice and bright. The bag
didn’t really come with much packaging as it wasn’t really needed which I felt
was a positive thing. Just came in a protective clear bag so the bag was nice
and clean on arrival. I thought the product had a good description and had a
tag attached to the handles to give the buyer more information about all the
added extras such as the internal pockets, the internal mirror, the pen loop
and the bottle pouches. The change bag was as I had expected on the whole,
however no stroller straps are included and you have to buy them separately
which I think is a huge negative point to this bag as it is expensive to
purchase and all mums want to be able to hang the change bag from their
stroller so would have to purchase these on top of the bag. Carrying it on your
shoulder as well as pushing the stroller is hard work! However, the bag itself did include all of
the useful things such as thermo-insulated bottle pouches, wet bag and change
mat. Although there were large pouches for nappies I found that I couldn’t find
things easily within the bag as it had no separate sections within the bag. I
think the quality of the product was really good, the materials used looked
like they would last and the wipe clean material was a plus for me with
everything that goes in and on the bag! I think this bag is really expensive,
especially considering it doesn’t come with a stroller strap attached, which
would have to be purchased separately. It doesn’t offer anything extra than
most high-street bags so I’m not sure I would purchase this at £75. An
improvement to this product would be to include the stroller strap as part of
the package and to have a divider down the middle of the bag so there is a definite
section to the bag so you can find things easily and quickly. I would tell
people about this product as it is a striking design and has lots of good
features. My overall experience with the
product was good; the bag was large enough for all our things on a daily basis
and included a change mat with a few pockets for nappies and phone etc.
However, I did take a while to find things within the bag as it was quite large
and I found it difficult having the bag on my shoulder as it was heavy and not easy
to pick my daughter up at the same time as wearing the bag. Ali Smith – Bethany
