This past February, I posted about this very clever motherchildbag by reisenthel that caught my eye at the New York International Gift Fair. I’m not surprised that this product has taken off- I’m seeing it on tons of other blogs and online boutiques (where it is often sold out) since that time. So I am very happy that we have nabbed one to offer as our 2nd giveaway this week.
The bag is not only eye-catching (love the graphics; they remind me of my calling cards), but also supremely practical. It has an extra handle for Junior to hold onto so that Mom (or Dad) can keep both of their hands free for carrying groceries, a younger sibling, you name it. And, obviously, it keeps the little ones closer to you and less likely to wander off. Why didn’t I think of this? Personally, as a single mom who is always out and about with 2 kids, this would come in quite handy (pun intended). I wish it had another handle for another kid! For now, my belt loops will do.
The motherchildbag is made of sturdy tear-proof polyester fabric, has handy inner pockets, and can tote up to 30 lbs. The winner will be able to choose from among four colors (pending availability): kiwi green, navy blue, red, or sand. The bag retails for $19.99 (it’s sold out in many places but still available at Touch of Europe). And one last tidbit, which is especially meaningful for Mother’s Day: for each bag purchased, reisenthal will donate 1 Euro to selected children’s day care facilities in Germany (where reisenthel is based).
Win it! One reader will win their choice (pending availability) of motherchildbag by reisenthel. Here are the contest rules (they have changed a bit- please read carefully!)
