I was so excited that I found a gorgeous "Pink Lemonade" coloured bag to buy ready for the arrival of my daughter. The design and colour was amazing so I couldn't wait to pack it!
The bag lasted maybe 4.5 months before the stitching next to the zipper wore, and now has a hole. It makes it so painful to close and open the bag!
This bag does have a good amount of room and convenience with it including a thermal bottle holder, wet wipes case and change mat, but very disappointing that it didn't last as long as expected.
Love this bag
I'm not usually one to spend alot of money on a bag but I really loved the design of this one and my Mum bought it as a gift when I was pregnant. I've used this bag everyday for the last 14.5 months and I still love it as much as the first time I saw it.
I really like that the back compartment of the bag is divided up - great for nappies/wipes, the change mat that comes with the bag aswell bottles when my daughter was having them.
The front compartment is a good size for a change of clothes, my wallet, a few snacks etc.
Lots of other pockets for all the little bits and pieces aswell.
So happy with this bag.
Loooove the design. Don't love the quality
I bought my first in orange online, and loved it straight away. I received loads of compliments.
But it showed wear very quickly on the zipper tags and around the stitched handles. So much so, that I felt ashamed to keep using it. It was replaced by the online retailer, but the replacement was obviously a different batch of fabric, it looked cheaper. And again it ripped around the handles and showed wear on the zipper tags. However the rips and wear on the replacement bag were not as bad as the first.
I have had my second bag for over a year,...
Stitching ripped after 8 months of use.
I was so excited when I purchased this bag. I spent more than I wAnted but wanted a reputable brand. When my daughter was about 8 months old I noticed the stitching had completely come loose near the handle. It continued to come undone for next few months and now I don't even use it as the White material underneath is all exposed. I would not recommend this bag to anyone. Complete waste of money.
I was initially so happy and pleased with this bag. I loved everything about it. Until 4wks ago when the stitching came undo near one of the shoulder straps and tore. I did expect more from such a well known and great brand of nappy bag. This bag was no cheap and due to the type of material, I can't do anything with it. If I use the two carry straps to hold it, it starts to rip more.
I am completely disappointed with this bag. Not something you expect after 9 months of use.
all the compartments and space
Clearly very cheaply made as It ripped at the seams 9 months after use.
All in one handbag and nappy bag
I have been on the hunt for a bag that I can have as a hand bag and nappy bag for 2 kids. I got tired of having to carry around a bag for myself and my kids. I wanted one bag I can grab and go. I looked at quite a few different bags and this is the one that I feel would suit my needs the best.
I ideally wanted a bag that had 2 big zip compartments rather than one big zip compartment. I love all the different compartments. I can put all my necessities in the front pockets, ie. purse, phone, lip balm, keys. The back compartment is great with ...all the dividers because I can put snacks in there and it's nice to keep them separate so I can find them easily. I also like the wide side pockets that stretch to fit any water bottle for my toddler. I've only had the bag for a few days but so far I'm very happy with it. 2 big zip compartments rather than one. Lots of little zip pockets and compartments. Not much really, maybe a little pricey. I got the mustard colour because the black version fabric looks a bit cheap.
Practical bag at reasonable price
I purchased this bag after much time researching all nappy bags, particularly in the mid to high price range. I love being able to get my hand on what ever I need because of all the pockets and sections. No searching around. Everything has a place which means hubby can put things away where I can find them and he can find things without my assistance. It is big enough to leave daily essentials in lessening the chance of leaving home without something that is needed. I also love the mustard yellow colour, it is so fresh and different. The faux leather is of good quality, I like the feel of it. All round I am very happy.
So far looks great! Should be ideal for 2
I received this nappy bag in charcoal the mail today as I am due with #2 in a few weeks and needed a more organised bag for toddler and newborn. I searched the net for weeks trying to find the right bag and finally decided on this one. So far it looks to have all the features I was hoping for. The faux buffalo is very soft to touch, all the zippers and clips are gunmetal grey which makes the bag look classy. It doesn't look too big or bulky but has many zippered compartments and looks like it should fit quiet alot inside. The new oioi lining is...nice and all the accessories it came with look good quality. It came with a clear plastic wet bag - not huge in size though, a insulated bottle holder - pretty tall would fit 2 avent newborn small bottles I'd say but once you upgrade to the bigger sized bottles only 1 would fit, oioi clear wipes case, change mat - conveniently rolls up and slots into one of the compartments, the bag also came with adjustable shoulder strap and stroller straps. The external side elastic pockets are pretty roomy and have easy access, would fit bibs, maybe a muslin wrap, hat for toddler or snack box etc in these pockets. The very front zippered compartments are pretty small so would fit dummy easily. The 2 pockets behind those are bigger than I expected and would easily fit a small snack box or mobile phone or maybe a small wet ones pack for sticky fingers. The longer zippered section behind that will be great size for my wallet, keys and phone. The 2 main compartments are pretty spacious. The front one is very roomy and deep and this is where I will keep all spare clothes, wraps, etc, it has a long zippered pocket as well as 4 mesh pockets - these are not wide and not stretchy so don't have alot of give in them so would be ideal for nappy rash creams or sunscreen. The second one is seperated into change mat space, bottle insulator space and then a wider space to put wipes and nappies. Overall I am pretty impressed by first impressions but I am still to go home from work today and pack it but I think everything will fit just fine. My only downfall I can see with it so far is probably that I would have made the mesh pockets more elastisised so that were stretchy mesh and could squish things in there, would probably make it 2 wider ones instead of 4 skinny ones but that is minor complaint. I got the bag on sale with free shipping for $135 I think it was. Lots of organised compartments & Roomy Mesh pockets inside first main compartment not stretchy so no give to stuff things in, would only fit small items in these pockets
Questions & Answers
For owners of this bag, how much can you fit in? because on the video on one side all the accessories fit in, what about nappies, baby clothes, etc. seems like the bag will not fit all that is needed for baby. including our own wallet, mobile phone, etc.
I just have a question for Tella about your oioi nappy bag that ripped. Did you contact oioi to see if it was under warranty for that kind of tear? I only ask ss I really love thi bag but am worried about the same thing happening. If you could let me know if they helped you or not that would be great. Thanks. Julie
So sorry I didn't see this.
I never called as you only get one yr warranty and I had purchased it the Dec/jan and bubs was born in April. So never got the full year use beforehand. I have a 2nd baby due in January and now have to purchase a 2nd bag due to this one being so ripped. It was never over packed either. I wasn't someone who went out an aweful lot. I'm a stay at home mum.
Not sure if you purchased this bag or not julie_shane but I have had this bag now for 18 months with no rips, still in as new condition and I use it every day with lots of rough handling!
I adore my Oioi faux buffalo bag (orange) my first showed tears around the handles and on the zipper tags within only about 3-4 months of use. Oi Oi replaced it, my second was made of a different fabric, it looked a little more fake, and it has also shown wear and tear, however I love the design so much I use it anyway. I have bub number two on the way, and will keep using my bag, but I really really wish they were better quality. If they were I'd buy a second in another colour. the two pockets are really fantastic,
