Wallaboo make the most perfectly soft car seat covers, stroller covers and blankets, but did you know they also do change bags to match? The lovely Hippychick PR team offered me one to review and I was rather excited. I love change bags. The Wallaboo change bags are made from beautiful microfibre suede and come in range of colours. They come with a nicely padded change mat and a bottle holder. There are lots of pockets for all your essentials and the insides are wipe clean. They retail at £44.95, which seems about average for a decent change bag.
As expected, the change bag is soft and luxurious, the sort of thing that just feels nice. Ideal for the colder winter months. The padded change mat, has to be the best one I have seen provided with a bag. You could easily use it on its own. The strap is ingenious, it has proper buckles on each side, so you can adjust it to fit your buggy perfectly. There is a nice separate zip up section where you can put all your things like a mobile phone, purse etc and lots of other zip up pockets for stuffing things.
My only criticism is that it seems a bit smaller than my usual change bags. However, this is probably a good thing, as I only end up carting around 3 additional pairs of spare pants for Toddler boy alongside 20 nappies and a large jar of nappy rash cream if I have space.
This is a stylish, unusual change bag which I reckon would make a lovely gift for a new mummy with a winter baby. I don’t think its all that great for the summer, but that’s alright, the perfect excuse to have two bags!
