The response to the initial range of PlayBags has been fantastic! Thank you to everyone who has supported this venture so far. Thanks also to those of you who have offered up suggestions on how to improve the product range. In response to suggestions, I am very excited to finally release the PlayBag “Baby”!
As usual, I don’t want to limit the scope of this bag, by specifying a certain age range, but this one has been created with 0-18 month old children in mind. That said, when I made the first prototype, four year old Peter was very excited at “his new PlayBag”, especially at all the super soft plush fabrics. He has now got his eye on the box of scraps…..!
The initial range of PlayBags was obviously designed around my current needs as a parent, i.e. that of a three year old. However, with lots of my friends having babies, it occurred to me that their needs would be different. For example, when they are out and about, they need somewhere clean and safe to put the baby down either to play or change. Some parents had also suggested that a pocket or two would be useful.
I wanted this bag to be very tactile for baby as well as being super practical for parents. Again I wanted it to be easy to use and stylish, so the popper and Velcro closures remain as standard, but have included two external pockets: one Velcro closing for an emergency nappy and wipes, and one secure zip closure pocket for purse of phone etc. there is also still plenty room inside to throw in a few toys to keep baby busy.
For the interior we wanted to keep the design simple yet stimulating so came up with the idea of a sort of off-centre “sun” with different coloured and textured “rays” coming off it.
The PlayBag Baby is a useful addition for families who like to travel lightly with baby, and be able to put them down on a safe and clean surface to play. It is also a unique and useful gift for a new baby. We have a limited number of bags in our shop, however if you require a specific colour combination or a different exterior fabric, please contact me on [email protected]
