#SLHFeaturedThursdays: Bags 4 Bubs Review Plus Win a Personalised Bag for Your Child...

I remember when my eldest Daughter was just a little thing and starting out in her first dance classes, how there were loads of uniform requirements that she would have to take along each week to practice: Ballet shoes, cross-over tops, a drink bottle and snacks, tights and so on. (And on!)
In those early days, I would juggle her essentials week by week in just my hands and before long I needed to enlist the help of her little hands too. I then invested in a small bag for her needs before tossing that in favour of a much larger and more suitable bag which was capable of carting the enormous quantity of costumes and trinkets all little girl dancers require.

Then there were the swimming lessons with which I had a similar bag issues. I used to regularly pack the bathers and towel in a plastic bag which always broke at a crucial moment; right when my exhausted child was plucked from the pool (or exiting the change room). There I'd be with my grizzling, wet and unhappy child by the poolside, while flustered me collected the fallen clothing, towels and shoes, (now sodden from the poolside puddles) and micro-managing several children at the same time...shudder!
Motherhood is so many of these frustrating situations combined isn't it? We've got to make the difficult tasks of our multiple roles easier on ourselves!
Today's Featured Thursdays focuses on Bags 4 Bubs, a business who produce high quality, handcrafted and personalised bags kids of all ages can manage to use themselves and love. I really want to stress the fact that the gorgeous bags from Bags 4 Bubs are child-friendly in more ways than just looks too. These are a range of easy to open and close totes, backpacks and handbags featuring magnetic fasteners (they also make pencil cases), and they really expand to cope with a lot of stuff.
The smallest of little people can handle these bags without frustration making them ideal for so many uses.
Bags 4 Bubs sent us their large tote bag to road-test here and we are so impressed with the quality of these carry-alls. Celeste's big and pretty bag measures 32cms height by 50cms width and has a wide 12cm base. We've popped so much in here and used it on many occasions so far. (Pictured here on this occasion, before a trip to the beach.)

The bags at Bags 4 Bubs are fully customisable for boys and girls, giving you the opportunity to choose the fabrics for both the exterior and interior of the bag. I settled for a pretty pale spotted pink base with a bright green contrasting interior. I figured this combination would last years and remain classic. I know down the track I will be returning to dance and swim schools with this Little Miss and we just couldn't go wrong with this one! It's so roomy and comfortable to wear.

All Bags 4 Bubs bags feature fabric inners which are encased within a quality, heavy-duty PVC covering both inside and out. This makes them quite water resistant and therefore great beach or swim bags. The outer corners are reinforced on the base too, so rough treatment in the hands of your kids will not destroy them easily.

Inside the quality stitched finishings shine with two large inner pockets sewn from clear PVC. These are fantastic for housing and locating small children's items like hairpins and double as fantastic bottle storage pouches too. Any spills inside a Bags 4 Bubs bag are fully wipeable and fuss-free making it the perfect bag for so many different children's activities and occasions.

Great features and uses include:

Large, comfortable carry handles.
Water resistance: Cleans easily with just a simple wipe.
Heavy duty fabrication.
Personalised with your child's name.
Fully customisable fabric choices both inside and out.
Lightweight, but quality.
Fast order turnaround.
Easy for children to use:  Little kids can pack, unpack and carry these bags without frustration and tantrums. Large enough to store everything and easy to find things too.
An ideal choice as a distinctive baby bag or hospital bag for new Mums and an especially good choice for very young babies who need loads of accessories in those hectic early months.

The Bags 4 Bubs range are perfect for kinder children. They are so distinctive and easily recognisable for little ones. With your child's name emblazoned across one of these bags, little day care users, dancers and swimmers will never bring home the wrong bag again!

  1. Such beautiful bags!!!
    Dora has lots of lovely bags so I'd love one for Moo. Having it personalised makes it so much more special and would be ideal to pack for our regular trips to Nanny's house. I reckon I could fit all the essentials plus a few of her favoutite toys in there. The colours of Celeste's bag are my favourite at the moment ~ pink and miny! LOVE!

  2. Sing along to Queen’s ‘I Want to Break Free’

    We want to break free
    I want to take three
    I want to take three excited children
    To a trip to town, picnic under the trees
    I’ve got to take coffee
    God knows, after the movies and FlipOut I need coffee

    I’ve fallen in love
    So have my girls, with this great bag
    And this time the trip will be a breeze
    Carrying their swimmers with ease
    God knows, there’s room for their lunch, bickies and cheese

    It’s strange but it’s true
    I can’t get over the choice of fabrics you can choose
    Perfect for sleepovers, to the seashore
    And plastic bags aren’t hard core
    Oh how special they'd feel, baby
    Oh how I want to decree
    A named bag means no losses at sports activities

  3. I would use it to cart the numerous amounts of toys my kids tend to have to take with them everywhere we go, that way things won't get left behind or sprawled throughout the car!

  4. OMG YES PLEASE!!!! I have a one year old who has more things to carry around then most babies I know. Cloths (for "accidents"), Nappies (2x more then other kids, I swear I have the nappy changing art down pat.... note to self do a "how to change Nappies under duress" blog), and his medicine. LOVE the bag!!

  5. These bags are super dooper cute! Anything easily cleaned with a wipe is a must-have in my family. Thanks for the opportunity!

  6. I would take it with me to her daycare and back. At least it's well labeled so no one will take it by mistake and it can hold lots of daycare goodies in it!

  7. Hayley is really into copying everything I do at the moment so Im sure she'd love to have a bag of her own so she could feel all grown up like mummy. We'd probably most use it for swimming lessons, mothers group catch ups and when she stays at grandma's. Although I can also see her wanting to carry it around the house each day just because.

  8. I'd love to make this the 'big' present for the hamper we make up each year for a family at Christmas, with the word lovely or sweetie on it. The little girl would love it!

    Karen Edwards

  14. Family Funday Sundays!!! Train travel is cheap so each occasion is to a different location which would make this bag ideal; with it being versatile enough to bring in rain hail or shine!
