I have a huge obsession with changing bags and I own a few luxurious ones such as Jem + Bea, Tiba + Marl, Bax + Bay Cub Bag, I’ve even tested out a couple of Kerikit bags just for reviewing purposes but I’ve never had a Pacapod before. I have always wanted one as I am quite an organised person and I love everything to have its own place so the pod system really appeals to me, it is something that sets Pacapod apart from its competitors.
I have been very lucky to have been sent a beautiful pebbled leather Firenze bag from Pacapod to review, I won’t lie I did squeal with delight as in a previous blog post I named this exact bag my number 2 favourite changing bag ever! so to get my hands on one in real life is an absolute dream come true.
My first thoughts is that it is a little bit bigger than I imagined in my head but it isn’t too big (I’m really picky) and I thought that it’s even more beautiful in the flesh. I have been using it daily for the past week or so now and I’m smitten. As well as looking like a high-end designer handbag it is super functional! Even though my daughter is 2 I don’t see us ditching a changing bag anytime soon, this is a bag that you can use as a luxurious handbag long after your child is grown up and the leather will just look better with age.
The pods are the star of the show
I really love the pod organisation system a lot more than I thought I would as it’s just so handy, everything is there and has its own place.
The Feeding Pod – is all thermo insulated so it will keep your toddlers lunch cool or bottles warm, it comes with a separate thermo bottle holder too and has a zipped pocket perfect for cutlery (so the tab tells me). It has a transparent front pocket which would be useful to store a personalised picture in if your child wanted to use it for nursery as it has padded straps so your little one can use it as a backpack too, genius.
The Changer Pod – It has a handy pocket at the back where the changing mat is stored. Inside there are lots of net pockets for everything you might need for a nappy change even down to a little bag for storing clean or soiled clothes in. My favourite thing is the small side zipped pocket which as the label shows me is for medication! what a great thought!
