Giveaways and Reviews

Cricket & Monkey Review and Giveaway (closed)

Cricket & Monkey, created by Karen Stein after her grandchildren were born, is a company that takes cheerfulness to heart! The home page of the Cricket & Monkey website has a photo of their new Taylor Weekender diaper bag in the Monkee print. When a site displays a monkey print as their lead item, this tells me I’m dealing with people who are fun, creative, and understand that being a mom means fun is an element of everyday life.

Oh how I adore their diaper bags! Cricket & Monkey sent me the Madison Tote diaper bag to review, in Flower Power pattern. The very first impression I had of this bag was how large, bright, and colorful it is! My husband immediately proclaimed that he wouldn’t be the one carrying it (fine by me!) Another immediate thought I had about this bag was that it would be so useful to me long-term. Because of the tote-style, it doesn’t *look* like a diaper bag. There are no obvious bottle holders on the outside and to all appearances it looks like a regular fun tote.

Inside the bag is where the goodies are, so to speak. There are 4 pockets inside including 2 bottle pockets. Another treat inside is a keyring which is a great idea for this style of bag. Because it can fit so much, keys could easily get lost in the bottom so the key ring is fantastic!
I know I’m going to get years of use from this bag. It’s a good thing that the outside material is PVC because it’s going to be so easy to keep clean – just wipe and go!

The second item I was able to review was the Cosmetic Bag in honeycomb print. I liked that this bag had a PVC outer lining as well. I go through 1 cosmetic bag a year, I estimate, because they get pretty dirty from make-up itself and travelling. This bag is going to be easy to clean too! It’s also machine-washable should a person accidentally spill liquid make-up inside the bag…not that I’ve ever done that.
