I was so excited to receive this Turquoise Faux Buffalo Carry All Changing Bag from OiOi in the post! It’s so pretty and the nicest bag I have ever owned, and it’s a changing bag! At first glance you can see it’s very well made, with a great feel to it. I was extremely surprised at how soft the faux leather was!
I quickly put this bag to the test, emptying out my old bag and filling this one with all my stuff. This was a tough test because I have not one, but two children to pack for now, having just had a new baby! So imagine my delight that I could fit everything I wanted for both children and myself with a small amount of room to spare. this include nappies and wipes, a spare outfit for each child, a small fleece blanket, a large muslin swaddling cloth and hats and gloves and a few other things.
There are many features to this bag that I love such as the matching changing mat, the many different pockets both inside and out, having both short and shoulder straps, the extra big and extremely easy to get things into (such as juice bottles) side pockets and the insulated bottle holder. But above all I love the pushchair clips! Not only are they and extremely useful thing to have when you have next to no space under the pram and your bag is rather heavy from all the extra things you have managed to fit into all that space, they are extremely well made. Just like everything else on this bag such as the zips, the clips are such fabulous quality, they are strong and easy to use, not stiff and flimsy like others I have used with other bags! Even my partner was particularly impressed with them and the overall quality and ‘sturdiness’ of this bag which says a lot about it as he doesn’t tend to have much of an opinion on any baby related item!
Overall I’m extremely happy and grateful to have this product! I honestly don’t have any criticisms at all, and I have really tried to think of something that could be improved! I really wish I had this bag when my first child was a baby, would have saved me going through the four others I have had previously!
