As most people now know, we have a new addition on the Lilypad and this little bundle of joy also comes with a large bundle of additional accessories! We were therefore delighted to be asked to review the "Layla" Changing Bag by Minene.
The sales "blurb" says:
The bag contains 2 large compartments divided by a large zipped pocket in addition to a generous sized detachable pouch which can be used to store all personal belongings. The pouch can also be used separately by attaching it straight to your pushchair for those days when you choose to travel light.
There are 3 external thermal pockets, a stylish matching padded changing mat and insulated thermal bottle holder. The innovative design of the bag enables it to be worn in 3 different styles to suit your needs; it can be carried as a backpack, a shoulder bag or attached to any pushchair using the straps provided
We were therefore keen to try it out and with our little lady arriving 10 days early, it appeared that so was she!
With my first daughter, I have to admit to buying the bag that matched the pushchair which was more a fashion statement than a practical solution but with the Minene Layla bag, I get the best of both worlds.
Its stylish, not oversized but with the different sections and compartments that you can add and take away as you need to, it is completely practical and well thought out too!
I am someone who loves accessories and especially bags, so the changing dilemma and outfit co-ordination is always a tough decision but with the Layla bag being available in a variety of different colours, there is one to suit every taste!
The bag even gets the approval of Mr Lilypad. In his words, "its not too girly" and he feels confident in taking it out with or without me. (although maybe not quite with or without baby .... I dont think we have reached the man bag stage just yet).
So that the other little one on the Lilypad wasnt left out, Minene kindly sent their Ladybird "Child Bag" for the 6 year old to "test".
"The minene animal themed backpacks are bright, fun and practical. Made from a lightweight, durable, wipe able material on the outside and a soft cotton lining on the inside, this bag is completely child friendly. These animal backpacks are great fun and are perfect for school or nursery bags for young children"
You can tell that the Minene range of products have been designed by parents with parents in mind. This is the Little Lilypad Co ethos and we have no hesitation in recommending Minene to our fans, followers, subscribers .... in fact anyone who will care to listen.
